Grendalla: Enchanted Elvin kingdom - Available on Amazon

About Grendalla: Grendalla - Enchanted elvin Kingdom, it is a quick reference guidebook for young and aspiring fantasy writers. I've intentionally written the book in alphabetical order, with each character's personality described in detail with a colour illustration.


Welcome to a fantasy adventure of your own imagination, when you enter the magical world of Grendalla. Not only a colourful picture book of fairy creatures and their amazing lives of mischief and mayhem, Grendalla is a guidebook for future novelists. Because children have unlimited imagination, encourage them to create their own adventure stories with characters from Grendalla. Composed entirely in alphabetical order, from alchemist and gremlin to pixie and zip, each species is brought to life with a depiction of their own makeup. Their personae range from respectable citizens, to wicked and malicious creatures such as witches and goblins. And included is a map showing important locations such as towns, cities and geological landmarks, that will help place their fable. With countless new individuals to be created, and countless adventures to be composed, your child will relish. . . Grendalla, Enchanted Elvin Kingdom . Visit the Books Website to learn more
