I have received a free e-copy of the book “An Unlikely Friendship” by Jasmine Fogwell for son1 to review. To find out more about the author you may visit her website.
Here is the book blurb.
Have you ever seen a Fidori? Wait! What is a Fidori, you ask? Fidoris are leafy, mushroom-footed creatures that live on the tops of trees. But are they real? James, age ten, has seen one, although his skeptical parents dismiss his stories, telling him that he is too old for imaginary friends. Rionzi DuCrét, an one hundred and fifty year old lady, also claims to have seen the Fidoris. However, the people of Nemesté agree that this is a sign that Rionzi has gone insane in her old age. Join James and Rionzi in The Fidori Trilogy as they set out to find the Fidoris and prove that they are real.
James is staying at the inn with his parents whilst they look for a house to buy in Nemesté village and he explores to the top floor where he meets a very old lady called Rionzi DuCrét who he is not supposed to see. Whenever his parents are out, he goes back several times to chat to Rionzi and tells her about his friend who he now can’t find in the forest. He also mentions the purple flowers, (as in the title of book 2). Rionzi recognises what he is talking about from her own encounters many years ago.
Here is son1’s video review.
An Unlikely Friendship is available on Amazon, currently priced at £7.50 in paperback. It is also available as an ebook, but not via Amazon. Son1 enjoyed this book, plus the sneak preview of the follow-up story.
An Unlikely Friendship is the first book in a trilogy. Books 2 and 3 are still work in progress but their titles will be “The Purple Flower” and “The Journey to the Top of the Trees”. Something to look forward to.
