Krikkit’s Shoes: D’Arragon Prophecy, Jessie L. Best

Action & Adventure, Literature & Fiction, Magic & Sword and Sorcery, Middle Grade Fiction

Life is pretty ordinary for Krikkit. Ordinary and rather boring. Boring, that is, until she places the shiny black leather shoes she rescued from beneath her bed, on her nine year old feet.
Transported almost instantly to the Kingdom of D’Arragon, she becomes caught up in the mystery and magic of the royal D’Arragon Dynasty.

Sorcery and intrigue abound, but Krikkit’s sense of adventure overcomes her fear and doubt as she enters a wondrous new world she could never have imagined existed.

She attempts, with the help of Jara, a D’Arragon sorcerer, to prevent a century old prophecy from becoming a horrible reality that would change the royal dynasty forever.

Amidst all the excitement and chaos Krikkit encounters, she cannot help but wonder if she will ever get home again.

Krikkit’s Shoes: D’Arragon Prophecy is an adorable, incredible, fantastical tale that will entertain young readers for many hours. The story laced throughout the book is one that is inspirational as well as compelling thanks to the many poignant themes laced throughout the story and the shocking moments which will keep young readers entertained. I believe that all children from the ages of seven to thirteen or even fourteen will adore this story and so I have to recommend this to all children.

Krikkit’s Shoes: D’Arragon Prophecy follows the nine-year-old young female protagonist of the story, Krikkit. Krikkit lives a somewhat mundane life, but when she finds a pair of black leather shoes and wears them, she will be transported to a magical land, specifically to a place named the Kingdom of D’Arragon. Once there, Krikkit will be taken on a magical adventure which will be full of many highs and lows. Krikkit will find herself entangled in a world of mystery, magic, and royalty and the result of this is a phenomenal story that will captivate young readers minds with amazement!

The story of Krikkit’s Shoes: D’Arragon Prophecy is a sensational one that weaves many themes that will all alight young readers minds. I adored the young protagonist of the story and think many young girls will love her and her journey and even her magical shoes! It is always lovely for young readers to read a story about an incredible character on a magical journey, so that is one of the many reasons why Krikkit’s Shoes: D’Arragon Prophecy works so well.

The story also works brilliantly because of the fantastic author, Jessie L. Best. Best is an incredible writer who knows how to capture young readers attention from the start. Best does this by placing the reader in the thick of the drama straight away with no long build up. The reader will be thrust into the story and the magical land of D’Arragon and because the reader experiences this so fast they will be hooked and captivated to read until the very end. Best manages to ensure that her readers are entertained from beginning to end, and she does this by weaving twists and turns throughout her book as well as many jaw-dropping magical moments that will fascinate as well as excite young readers.

As Krikkit’s Shoes: D’Arragon Prophecy is a sensational, stellar and supreme children’s book that will entertain, delight as well as charm young readers I, of course, have to award this book five stars!

Thanks,Aimee for a wonderfully insightful review of my book, Krikkit’s Shoes: D’Arragon Prophecy. You described exactly what I strive for in reaching young middle grade readers. Intelligently written, it kept my attention and I felt very encouraged to continue writing Book 2 in this series. I love reading and creating fantastical stories and it’s great to meet someone who feels the same! Are we all children at heart?!
