THE CRUMBLING BRICK is told in the tradition of C. S. Lewis’s and George MacDonald’s fairy tales.
As Ella keeps a promise to her mother to clean the cellar, she discovers a crumbling brick behind an old trunk. Even though it’s raining outside, sunlight pours through the opening. Intrigued, she chips away at the brick to find the source of the light.
To her astonishment, she finds another land beyond her cellar wall, gripped in the freshness of spring. But soon she realizes this lovely place is threatened by evil. Can Ella save this beautiful kingdom from disaster?
This novel had a likeness to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in the fantasy sense as well as light religious undertones. The Crumbling Brick was a fast paced story with plenty going on all the time and a light quick read with manageable chapters for younger readers or easy enough for a parent to read a few chapters to their children and it’s a book I’d read to my future children.
