Publisher's Summary

Magic and mayhem abound in this fantasy adventure from the author of The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place.

Young dairymaid Begonia has lost her cow Alfalfa. So she has set off on a search across the countryside even though she has nothing but a magical map to guide her. Along the way she meets a mother and baby, a woodcutter, a very dirty young man, and an eight-foot ostrich.

Meanwhile, the emperor has gone missing from the royal palace in a most mysterious manner. Was it murder? Was it magic? It will take all of Begonia's wits to save the empire and get Alfalfa home safely.

Delightful

Jayne Entwistle is fabulously entertaining! Not to mention the delightful story about the good in human nature that we see so little of anymore.

entertaining even for adults!

it started out a little slow, but was worth getting into the rest of the story. of course it had a happy ending. but it was very enjoyable and kept the reader's interest.
