Princess Betony has been chosen to collect a gift from the Wild Magic – a precious thunder egg that has to be protected at all costs. Betony must journey alone through the Dark Forest to Teapot Mountain and bring the egg back safely. If not, the Wild Magic will seek revenge.

I really enjoyed reading this book. My favourite parts where when Princess Betony met the Rock creatures and then when she finally got the Thunder egg. I think this book would be perfect for 6 and 7 year old girls. It is fun and has good pictures in it too. I give Princess Betony and the Thunder Egg 4 stars! – Aijay, Kid Reviewer

The author, Pamela Freeman, has created a lovely little story, like a fairy tale, and I would recommend it to girls, aged 9+.
