Review for Unicorns, Dragons & Trolls by Bethany Bull
Note: This is NOT a romance, it's a children's book.
Unicorns, Dragons & Trolls
Bethany Bull's "Unicorns, Dragons & Trolls" is a children's chapter book. The story lines are great! Good, old-fashioned morals are made enchanting through the use of fantasy creatures. I love the illustrations! The images are so cute! I think the choice of which stories to include is also excellent - there's a well-roundedness to the choice of fables.
5 out of 5 stars

Bethany was born and raised in South Africa. Her family did not have television until 1976, so her imagination was her main source of entertainment. She had a love for animals and magical creatures and a vast country with big open spaces where she imagined they lived. She would make up stories for her siblings in the evenings. Sometimes she would scare the socks off them and at the same time herself! She writes for children because their imaginations are free to believe and she would love to share her stories with children around the world.
