Author: Amy Wilson

Publication Date: October 2018
Most Suitable For: Years 5-6
Amy Wilson’s Snowglobe is breathtakingly beautiful and without a doubt one of my favourite books of the year so far.
Young Clementine is sure that the curious house she finds in the middle of town was never there before. Drawn to look inside, she discovers hundreds of snowglobes each containing trapped magicians, including her classmate Dylan.
Headstrong Clementine bravely ventures into the worlds of the snowglobes on a mission to rescue Dylan and free those trapped by the house's enchantments. As she struggles against the strange and powerful sisters in charge of the house, Clementine's own magical identity is awakened as she grapples with her own past, present and future.
I loved the complexity of the characters and the strong female lead, the enchanting magical worlds in the snowglobes and the emotive narrative that is gripping from the first page.
Snowglobe is simply spellbinding as Amy Wilson spins her own brand of enticing magic and demonstrates the charm of middle grade fantasy at its very best.
