When a 12 year old boy goes camping in Ireland with his boy scout troop and gets trapped in a faerie forest his whole world turns into a fiasco. Carl O’Conner does not believe in faeries. But oddly enough, the faeries in Sparkling Forest don’t believe in humans either! They think the boy is just part of their creative imagination. The faeries don’t think Carl is real and have no interest in having him leave, so will he ever get back to camp? When the boy meets a faerie named Freckleteen, he’s in for a mind bending ride from which he may never return.
THE MAGIC OF SPARKLING FOREST
Sparkling forest is where you will find faeries unlike any other. Located in Forget-me-not Ireland, few folks know about this unusual place. To say that it is magical is actually an understatement. The microcosmic morph-able spectrum known as Sparkling Forest, shrinks things that enter it’s space. The unusual trees in the forest are a clue to the ancient wisdom of the wood, though that aspect of the story will unfold as the books continue.
It seems that the human element actually changes and amplifies the way that mysterious happenings unfold. A surprising mix of animals and spirit guides as well as the legendary enchanters known as faeries have been completely invisible in Sparkling Forest, until now. The faeries have assumed people are merely an odd form of fantasy entertainment, and although humans rarely enter their realm, there is the possibility of seeing this mostly invisible reality, if one can find the secret passageway. When a twelve year old boy shows up there unexpectedly, everyone’s beliefs are turned upside-down.
Nana Gordengrinkle Godmother has informed the wee folk that humans are nonsense and are only a figment of their creative imagination. She has warned them that entertaining the notion people are real, could be dangerous. A faerie named Freckleteen is overwhelmed with curiosity. She must find out for herself if humans are just a people-tale and her brave choice changes Sparkling Forest forever.
