The Adventures of Cecilia Spark by Ngaire Elder - Mary Ann Bernal review

My review of The Adventures of Cecilia Spark by Ngaire Elder
The Adventures of Cecilia Spark  the Brimstone Forest - is a delightful story not just for children.  The author has included every imaginable threat to Cecilia’s safety, from witches to dragons, but with wonderful heroes, including Soldier the mouse, Senorita Favorita, and Thingamabob.  The story follows Cecilia’s quest to explore the Brimstone Forest, preferring a dragon hunt over returning home.  Cecilia and Soldier forge ahead, surviving the clutches of killer plants, but falling victim to the dragon’s trap.  Cecilia must defeat the odds in order to return home, but does she?  Find out for yourself.  I look forward to reading other books by this author.
