Wonderful Fiction!!

East by Edith Pattou

In this imaginative re-telling of the folk-tale "East of the Sun, West of the Moon", a young girl takes off for parts unknown with a large- and magical- white polar bear. In order to save her sister from illness and make her family's money problems go away, Nymah has to live in a magical underground castle with the mysterious polar bear.

The castle is wonderfully entertaining, with rooms just for books, rooms just for music, rooms just for anything you can think of, but Nymah still becomes lonely after a time.

The nights are only interrupted by the mysterious presence that gets into the large bed with her each night. She knows somehow that if she sees this person, something very bad will happen. Yet one night her curiosity gets the better of her with disastrous results...

This beautiful and exciting story is so engrossing that despite it's size, you will not want to put it down, and you will probably read it faster than many smaller books.
