Princess Adela would rather be digging in her garden than listening to teatime gossip, so when she visits the mysterious Lady Hortensia’s garden, she knows immediately that something is wrong. Every flower is in bloom?—in October! Not only that, a talking magpie is flitting about stealing the guests’ jewels. Is it possible that Hortensia is a witch, and the magpie an enchanted prince? And what of the flowers? Will Adela get to the root of the mystery and nip trouble in the bud before it’s too late?
“An original fairy tale that will suit young romantics to a T.” — Kirkus Reviews
