A Day with Wilbur Robinson

In the kingdom of Ayortha, who is the fairest of them all? Certainly not Aza. But what she lacks in looks, she makes up for with a kind heart, and with something no one else in Ayortha has—a magical voice. Her voice captivates all who hear it. With this spellbinding tale of adventure, romance, and song, Newbery Honor author Gail Carson Levine invites you to join Aza as she discovers how exquisite she truly is.

Some lucky readers just like you had the chance to read Fairest before the book hit the stores! They were members of the HarperCollins Children’s First Look program.
Here’s what they had to say:

I must admit I was a little worried when I received this book. I loved Ella Enchanted so much that it was hard for me to believe anything could even touch its beauty. I was wrong. Fairest is a wondrous new book from Levine. I fell in love with Aza and wanted to know more and more about her as the book went on. The characters are very well written. I loved seeing glimpses of characters from Ella Enchanted as well (Areida is Aza’s adoptive sister). A magnificent book! A MUST READ!

I loved Ella Enchanted, but Fairest is really amazing! I think it tells a great story and I could totally relate to it. I really liked how Aza’s boyfriend accepted her for who she was. Looks aren’t everything and beauty has its price. Gail Carson Levine does a really good job at getting these messages across in a super cool way. The plot of Fairest is really interesting and kept me turning the pages as fast as I could. Every teenage girl should read this book—high school would be a much better place if they took it to heart too.

One word: Wow. This book is fabulous! It’s funny, romantic, adventurous--something for everyone! Fans of Ella Enchanted will especially love this book, set in the neighboring kingdom to Ella’s. It might technically be a children’s book, but people of all ages will love it!
