by M.E. Heller

Overview

Who Killed the Flowers, book 11 of The Gate Between The Worlds is an exciting new E-Book for children. A great read for children 9-12 years and a funny bedtime Chapter Book for younger children.

Description

Fairyland has changed! Fairies, elves, wizards, dragons, and gnomes have begun to take on very human characteristics. Sometimes forgetting how to perform the simplest magic, fairy godmothers go into retirement at the age of two thousand years, wizards travel around in flying saucers and submarines, and fairies and elves assume hilarious variations of human lifestyles; their palaces often appearing as a sort of whacky Downton Abbey.

Who Killed The Flowers is another brownie adventure, this time in the World of Water. Flowers have been mysteriously turning black in various places,  in different worlds. Familiar characters from Book 1, such the boy Skylar, this time with his friend, Jeff, Marigold, the flower fairy, Queen Celestine, the retired fairy godmother Math, the trickster wizard, and the brownies, themselves, are all in on the adventure. New characters like Sprayneedle, a plant wizard, and Rattycat, add to the fun. Brownies, fairies, elves and wizards travel to the bottom of the Great Sea in a wizard's submarine to track down the killer. 

About the author

M.E. Heller is an artist and scholar who has received national acclaim for her handcrafted cloth dolls. Archetypal and literary characters she has portrayed attracted the attention of the Strong Museum in Rochester New York and led, in 1986, to the creation of a line of dolls based on the Palmer Cox Brownies. In 1999, she provided dolls and artwork to the International Museum of Photography at the George Eastman House for their traveling exhibition in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the Brownie Camera. Her research into the characters, mythology and legends of the Brownies reaffirmed her belief in their underlying benevolence and reverence for Mother Earth, inspiring the author to write and publish The Return of The Brownies, the first of the trilogy, The Gate Between The Worlds, in 2004.
