Princess Megan

Magic Attic Club

Megan is stretched too thin: she is meant to be directing a play, but her mother, who is forced to work late, has a conflicting task for Megan. Upset, Megan flees to the Magic Attic, where she tries on an outfit suited for a princess and finds herself transported to a medieval village where she is herself a princess.

All is not well for Princess Megan, either: a unicorn is to be killed, and there seems to be no way to save it. Somehow, Megan must save the unicorn and resolve her own dispute with her mother.

The usual device in a book like this is to draw a connection between the problems in the fantastic world and the real world, so that a lesson learned in the one applies in the other. This book doesn’t really do that. It just tells two stories, and both get resolved, and the only connection between them that I can see is that a solution was possible for each.

Well enough written, this book is probably fine for the intended audience (ages 6 and up), but is too simple to be of much interest to older readers.
