Book Preview: The Twistrose Key

the twistrose keyThe Twistrose Key (2013) is a debut fantasy novel for children  in the middle grades by the Norwegian author Tone Almhjell, and is illustrated by Ian Schoenherr. It has been compared to The Chronicles of Narnia and The Golden Compass, but this tale is unique.

One day a package arrives in the mail containing a key that unlocks the door to a winter-shrouded, magical world. It is the home of pets and other tamed animals who have died and left the world that is known to Lin Rosenquist.

The eleven-year-old heroine learns that this special place, Sylveros, is in jeopardy. She has been brought to the land where animals that have been beloved by children are human sized, to help save it from evil snow trolls.

With the help of her recently deceased pet vole, Lin embarks on a mission to find another child savior before it’s too late. I recommend curling up with hot cocoa while enjoying this adventure.
