Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Princess Madison and The Whispering Woods is an enchanting blend of royalty, knights, archery and adventure, as well as cell phones, TV, Band-Aids and Rice Krispies Treats.  Madison delights in hearing her father, the King, tell her how much he loves her.  Then she disobeys, gets lost in the Whispering Woods, has lots of adventures and problems, and begins to think her fatherís love must be dwindling because of her disobedience.  But Dad comes to the rescue and Madison finds out his love does not dwindle.  

Award winning author and mother Karen Linamen, writer of the bestselling Just Hand Over The Chocolate and No One Will Get Hurt, brings parental expertise and Christian understanding to this story.  Written at reading level grade 2-4, Princess Madison catches the imagination immediately.  Phyllis Hornungís colorful, detailed, light-filled, full-page illustrations bring the story to life.  This volume is part of the Princess Madison Trilogy which also includes Princess Madison and the Royal Darling, and Princess Madison and the Paisley Puppy.

An enjoyable picture book for older ones to read for themselves and younger ones to listen to, Princess Madison provides adventure, fun, a good lesson about family love, and an even better lesson about Godís love.  It will be welcomed by schools, churches, families, and other childrenís groups.  The pretty cover attracts attention, making Princess Madison an eye-attracting gift.
