Review:

Praise for Bella at Midnight: "Fans of fairy tale retellings will enjoy the fanciful twists in familiar territory, and long remember this engaging heroine, destined for a happily-ever-after life."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

Praise for Saving Sky: "This page-turner skillfully captures the irrational fear of a public under siege while giving kids a modern-day, almost-just-like-them female hero who champions hope. Inspiring."--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Saving Sky: "The main characters are well rendered and likable, and, in her portrayal of the earth-centered, nurturing Brightman family, Stanley succeeds in delivering the message that hope trumps fear."--School Library Journal

"A versatile and inventive raconteur, Stanley (Bella at Midnight) nimbly weaves intrigue and fantasy into this richly layered story set in medieval times."--Publishers Weekly

"[T]he pacing is masterful, with new information and character development doled out in exactly the right doses, intercut with thrilling escapes and clever plots...a satisfying yarn of loyalty rewarded and mutual understanding gained."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

An accomplished storyteller, Stanley uses her singular gifts to craft a remarkable historical fantasy. Combining carefully chosen details of setting with a richly realized fantasy premise, Stanley succeeds in creating a believable world large enough to accommodate not only menace and evil but also loyalty, enduring friendship, and love. --Booklist (starred review)"

Veteran Stanley concocts a delicious blend of familiar fairy-tale motifs and intriguing, well-rounded characters to create an engaging fantasy. A most worthy and enjoyable entry in the feisty female fantasy genre. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Adventure, magic, subtle romance, betrayal, and monstrous curses take this book far beyond the typical scullery-maid-makes-good tale. --School Library Journal (starred review)"

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. An engaging fantasy. A most worthy and enjoyable entry in the feisty female fantasy genre, said Kirkus Reviews. Don t miss The Silver Bowl, which received three starred reviews, was named a best book of the year by Kirkus Reviews and Book Links Lasting Connections, and was an ALA Booklist Editors Choice. Unwanted at home, Molly becomes a humble scullery maid for the King of Westria. She arrives at the castle with no education, no manners, and a very disturbing secret: She sees visions that always come true. In time, Molly begins polishing the castle s fine silver pieces, which include one priceless royal treasure: the king s great ceremonial hand basin. But whenever she touches it, the silver warms beneath her fingers and the bowl s designs swirl into a vision that only she can see. A dreaded curse has befallen each generation of the royal family--and now it threatens the handsome Prince Alaric. Together with her friends Tobias and Winifred, Molly must protect the prince and destroy the curse. Could a less likely champion be found to save the Kingdom of Westria?.
