March 2017 Debut of the Month | In a nutshell: gentle but inspiring stories of a little girl’s brush with magic | Jessica Ennis-Hill is best known as an Olympic gold medallist but now she’s setting out as a children’s author. Inspired by her own young family – and it seems by vivid memories of what she enjoyed most as a child – she’s created a fun, contemporary story about a little girl who receives a special present from her grandma, a bracelet that gives her magical powers, such as the ability to talk to animals. The idea of being magic is always thrilling to young readers but just as enjoyable are the descriptions of Evie’s home and school life, and particularly the joyful way she and her friends jump and leap in the playground, and the fun they have taking part in a special running race. ~ Andrea Reece

The Silver Unicorn by Jessica Ennis-Hill & Elen Caldecott

The first in a magical, exciting series by Olympic gold medallist Jessica Ennis-Hill. What if you had a magic bracelet that gave you the power to talk to animals?

And the bracelet isn't just beautiful...it shows Evie that there's magic everywhere, if she can just find out how to use it. With a bit of determination and some help from her friends, Evie's ready to have some magical adventures!

Reviews

The first in a gentle, inclusive fantasy series ... featuring new school nerves and a grandmother's magical gift ... it's refreshing to see a mixed-race British heroine with a solid Yorkshire vocabulary, in a book which is clearly a labour of love The Guardian
