Once again I must thank Mother Daughter Book Reviews and Louise Courey Nadeau for not only my free copy of The Rescue (Magelica’s Voyage Book 2), but also for the lovely gift pack that came with it. included were both books, a book mark and of course a necklace with two magic feathers. This would be a terrific gift for any little girl ages 5-9
The Rescue was just as delightful as the first book and just as centered on the power of believing in yourself to accomplish great things. In this book Magelica dreams of Prince William and his lost goldaron. She rushes to Queen Raya, and the Isle of Dreams to see what she can do to help. While there she discovers the power of laughter.
As with Magelica’s Voyage, this book is filled with wonderful life lessons. Believing in yourself, and sharing love with those around you. Most importantly the joy that is caused from laughter can ease fears, sadness and worry. Once again the book ends with a conversation with the reader about the power of imagination, and believing in one’s self.
I shared Magelica with my five year old niece and she immediately connected with main character and colorful illustrations. She loved both the storybooks, immediately tried out her fledgling reading skills, mostly she loved the idea that she could share a magic feather with her mother, older sister or auntie.
I recommend Magelica’s Voyage for children ages five and up. Older children will enjoy sharing the story with younger siblings and younger children will enjoy have the story read to them. All will come away better for have shared the story and its life lessons.

About the Author: Louise Courey Nadeau
Passionate about empowering and inspiring children around the world, Louise Courey Nadeau, born and raised in Montreal, Canada, and mother of two girls and two boys created her first fairy tale Magelica’s Voyage, with the second book in the series, The Rescue, launched June 2015.
“Through life’s trials and tribulations, I always believed I could. With the Magelica book series my goal is to take young girls and their parents and teachers on empowering adventures and to inspire and encourage them to believe that they are amazing just the way they are, and to discover the power of love, positivity, and believing in themselves.
“Magelica’s Voyage is inspired by my life, my family, and the special people and places I love”, says Courey Nadeau. “All of the characters in the story, including Magelica are reflections of the person I am- the wacky part, the funny part, the philosopher, the teacher, the caretaker, the chosen mom, the giver, and of course the dreamer. What would Magelica do, I often ask, and I get the answer. When you fly with Magelica, the possibilities are endless and there is magic all around.”
