Happy Book Birthday to Susan Hill Long for her latest release, The Magic Mirror: Concerning a Lonely Princess, a Foundling Girl, a Scheming King and Pickpocket Squirrel (Knopf).
Maggie is a girl of no account.The good folk of Lesser Dorste all look away, for she’s a foundling cursed with a crutch. She doesn’t even want to look at herself—till the day she’s given a magic mirror. And what she sees in the mirror sends her straightaway on a journey to the royal city.Others, too, are making their way: A monk with a tragic history and a boy with an uncertain future. A princess with a dark secret and a lord with wicked ambitions. A madwoman with a checkered past and a beggar with a flair for the dramatic.
In this twisty-turny tale of mistaken identities, missed connections, and loves lost and found, these wanderers and more will meet Maggie on her journey to heal herself . . . and even her kingdom.
“I love this book, an uproarious, thoughtful, touching, absurd, and altogether splendid adventure about truth, courage, determination, and family. I recommend The Magic Mirror gleefully.” Karen Cushman
