Il segreto delle gemelle PDF ✓ Il segreto ePUB


Il segreto delle gemelle Fairy Oak è un villaggio magico e antico nascosto fra le pieghe di un tempo immortale A volerlo cercare bisognerebbe viaggiare fra gli altopiani scozzesi e le scogliere Normanne in una valle fiorita della Bretagna fra i verdi prati irlandesi e le baie dell'oceano Il villaggio è abitato da creature magiche ed esseri umani ma è difficile distinguere gli uni dagli altri Infatti fate maghi streghe e cittadini comuni abitano uelle case di pietra da tanto di uel tempo che ormai nessuno fa più caso alle reciproche stranezze E dopo tanto tempo tutti si somigliano un po' A parte le fate che sono molto molto piccole e luminose e volano I maghi e le streghe della valle le chiamano per badare ai piccoli del villaggio I libri della uercia sono realizzati nel massimo rispetto dell'ambiente in carta interamente riciclata secondo gli standard del Forest Stewardship Council Età di lettura da 8 anni rereading one of my childhood favourites The Secret of the Twins is the first book of the Fairy Oak trilogy for kids age 9 and up The story takes place in a magical village Fairy Oak named after a talking oak where Magicals – wizards witches fairies – and Nonmagicals – citizens without the ability of magic live in peace and harmony The story is told by Telli the fairy nanny of Lavender and Vanilla The girls are twins born on the same day but twelve hours apart Twins aren’t supposed to inherit magical powers but their parents and aunt hope that twelve hours make an exception in their caseYears go by and the hopes begin to fade But finally the girls reveal their powers But an old enemy appears and threatens the peace of the village Family friendship mysteries magic mischiefs and gossip make Lavender and Vanilla’s life adventurous and exciting in this lovely story 3 and a half stars This book was a staple of my childhood The whole series really but this one is the one that triggers the most memories and a significant part of the love that I have for it can be traced back to those memories and the comfort element of a childhood book rather than to its actual ualitiesThat being said it's a damn good book and reading it now as an adult I'm even aware of it than I was as a kid It's a classic story of magic and wishes and fairies and woods and mysterious enemies but there's something about it that stands out to me among all the other magical stories I read as a kidEvery detail name and image is deliberately uaint and reminiscent of natural elements scents and visuals and that as a kid used to drive me absolutely nuts in a good way I just loved it So much It was adventurous and playful but also so deliciously cozy And there's a depth of character and variety of relationships here that kind of surprises me even now It's written like a children's book with made up magical words and a lot of exclamation marks but there's something in it that appeals to the grown up reader in me something about the way it explores its characters just as deeply as its fantastical traits in a way that's perfectly understandable to kids and carries a little intrigue and emotion for the older ones who can catch itAfter I closed this one I was actually excited to read the seuel For like the fifth time That's what this series does to meOh also the illustrations are gorgeous
