Woodencloak by Dawn Ford tells a tale for middle graders of a troll princess fighting to free her father and her people.

It’s a page turner, all right, as Horra barely escapes her castle during a coup. Together with her pet eagle, Horra flees into the wilderness and finds herself facing giants and all manner of other opponents. How can she find the help she needs?

I enjoyed this able princess who, Shrek-like, isn’t beautiful but is more than resourceful. Well written, well done!

This is a Christian author, with a family-friendly book. Take a look!
