In the mythical realm of Badalonium, a young boy named Sidri lived happily with his beloved parents. But the family is shattered by an evil figure from the afar, triggering a series of events that lead Sidri on a journey of self-development, friendship, family reunions and retribution.

My Review:

This is a beautifully illustrated, children’s fantasy story for able readers. It tells the story of how Sidri’s parents met, had Sidri and were the victims of a powerful magician who forced them apart. It is an epic adventure involving magic, animals, courage, determination and ingenuity as Sidri endeavours to reunite his family and save his Mum from the evil curse.

This is a great adventure story, one to be enjoyed by children and possibly to be utilised as a fantastic stimulus by teachers. It is written in short chapters and is illustrated throughout. I really enjoyed reading it and can see lots of possibilities of engaging children with it in class. There are many fable-type elements in the story, the language is descriptive and powerful and the illustrations superb – a great story to share.

I was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and thoroughly enjoying doing so.
