What I can say about this delightful children's book is it was a pure joy to read. I could easily imagine reading this story to my daughter to put her off to sleep in the evening. This book was beautifully written and the illustrations were simply superb and added immensely to the appeal of the book.
The story itself is simple enough. Queen Rose's childhood friend Hilary turns out to be a witch. When Hilary does not win the Queen of the Village title she vows to bring havoc to the town, one day. When Princess Matilda reaches the age of thirteen, this "black cloud" that has brought death and sickness to the village attacks the Princess. I won't reveal what happens after that, but it was a wonderful tale of love, fear, hope, despair and happiness.
It is quite easy to draw the corollary between the "black cloud" and cancer. I'm unsure if this was the intent of the book, but I could well imagine young childhood cancer sufferers taking hope and strength from Princess Matilda's story.
Just a lovely book and well done to the author.
Such a sweet story with stunning illustrations. An excellent book.

Rose and Hillary are best of friends as they grew up, or so Rose thought. Together in a pageant, they are showcased for a future King, Noah, to chooss for his Queen. After Rose is chosen, Hillary is not to happy and tells Rose that she never did like her and only was her friend to use her. Upset, Hillary casts a Black Cloud spell to last an eternity.
This black cloud spreads across Noah and Rose's village, causing sickness and death similar to the effects of cancer. Flash foward and they have a baby, Matilda. Scared of the curse, Noah and Rose keep her secluded to prevent her from falling to the black cloud.
Matilda sneaks out one day and meets Hillary in the forest, who infects the black cloud in her. This is as far as I'll go with the plot to prevent spoilers. From here, Jay magnificently crafts a story that is not only touching, but entertaining and well thought out. The artwork throughout the book was amazing and added to the experience.
A well deserved 5 out of 5
