The story is about a young beautiful girl Mira and her two boisterous friends Bira and Vira.

Mira has heard about the adventurous Farland and it’s people from her mother. A chance encounter on Gunhill with Bushy gives her an opportunity to make her dream come true. She hears that Princess Harmonica wishes to meet Mira and has invited her to the most sought after New Moon party.

However, her two friends anger Bushy who turns them into rats.

As midnight creeps in, Mira walks steadily to Gunhill to meet Starhead the pilot. They face the fierce Windman and his winds only to realize that the Queen of Witches is upto something wicked.

Unfortunately, both Starhead and Windman are captured by the Queen of Witches who wants to free the Dragon of the Underhill. And it now becomes Mira’s responsibility to inform Harmonica about her evil plan.

What follows is a scary yet fun adventure for Mira as she travels across the Lost Forest and meets friendly, helpful inmates like Mastiff the Dog, Fat Master, Candy Man and Toad Hearty.

She visits the Wizard who helps fix her friends Bira and Vira. With Mermaids guiding her through the mystical night, Mira arrives at Queen Halo’s Tower only to discover new challenges.

Finally, do they succeed in saving Farland from the wrath of the Queen of the Wishes and get to enjoy the New Moon party? That’s for you to find out.

What to expect from Adventures of Farland: Book review

The book demonstrates important virtues of bravery, patience, team-effort, support and friendship in the need of the hour. Important aspects of everyday life like time management, leadership and trust can be deciphered from the way the plot is handled.

A classic moral of how good always wins over evil. It is a fine work of fiction with easy language for even beginning readers. It is a good opportunity for emergent readers to read the book as a “novel”. Chronological ordering of events, describing the residents in form of their attires and appearances are some of the many extensional activities possible with this book.

The plot is fast paced and manages to keep you engrossed. Hoping illustrations will compliment the storyline once the book is released

The wildly imaginative situations, countless exciting details and characters assembles an unforgettable magical world. I enjoyed this read and wish for visit to a Farland to forget my worries. Aah, Wishful thinking !!

I give this book a 8.3/10 rating.
