“I’m so glad that we’ve read these books, and that the children (and I) enjoy them. It’s heart-warming to see my children together with their feather necklaces, Tristan reading to Kallista, and dreaming of faraway lands and learning that courage and joy are important in life.”
Review by 8 year-old: “I love this book sooooooooo much from the story to the illustrations. I want to read it again and again!”
“Any child will fall in love with the story and the magical journey and the cute mystical characters that straddles this tale. Awesome read.”

A girl with a dragon best friend, a magical bathtub, and a special feather necklace who helps a kingdom that lives on the back of a giant sea turtle by believe in herself. Really what's not to love? This fast paced adventure sucks you in and carries you through a magical world full of inventive characters, colorful settings, and magical happenings. The heroine, Magelica, is someone that young children can identify with and yet, look up to, with her inspiring attitude and belief in herself. A great series for young children.
Louise Courey Nadeau’s MAGELICA’S VOYAGE takes the reader on an amazing journey
Magelica's Voyage is a fun look at what it's like to discover yourself: who you are, what you are meant to be and what is possible in your life. That is definitely true for Magelica, and thanks to those around her she is able to see that no matter what she might think of herself at times there are really no limits to what she can do.
Love the way that Louise was able to tell Magelica's story and take the reader along for the journey.
In book 2 Magelica is awoken from a bad dream. One where she sees the prince lost on an island that is anything but nice. She knows she must help, so she travels out in her flying bathtub to let the Queen know she has had a dream about the prince. This one will keep you on the edge in hopes to seeing the prince to safety. Then you have where Magelica and the Prince find true love and a happy ending on the horizon.
This story while still very imaginative has a bit more drama in this one. Another wonderful story one that I find that any young girl will find enjoyable.
It is a book that first and second graders can read and younger children will enjoy this book being read to them. This book with its awesome pictures and sweet easy to sing songs helps to teach children valuable life lessons. Like not to lose hope, to keep their imaginations alive, the laughter and happiness can be powerful, and of course where there is a will there is a way. The new character in this book Prince Will is a great new character that reader will hopefully learn more about in the next book. Turtle was a great character in this book, but he had a bigger role in the last book. Overall a great book for young children.
Magelica has returned home and dreams that Prince William is stranded on a deserted island. She knows she needs to help so she goes back to the Isle of Dreams to share what she knows and help bring the prince home.
I liked that she momentarily struggled to return to the Isle of Dreams. The cute, fuzzy, purple ball, Odin, meets her right away and takes her directly to the queen. She sees old friends and meets some new ones and has new adventures where she learns more about herself and this new world she's entered.
My 11-year-old daughter and I enjoyed reading this book, too! Even though she usually reads thicker, more involved books, we loved that we could easily finish a book together and we were both ready for more when it ended. The illustrations are bright and fun! We have a pet tortoise so we especially enjoyed the turtle pictures. Like the first book, this one has three pages at the end which discuss what Magelica learned: wonderful things can happen when she laughs, when she believes in herself and when she trusts that life will guide her. These lessons are valuable for children, teens and adults! We were sad when we finished that we didn't have the next book to read.
This was a great bonding experience for us. We also received feather necklaces that we enjoyed wearing while we read these books and which remind us to believe in the magic of life!
Lovely Inspiring Adventure Series!
Once again, enchanting illustrations form an integral part of the charm of this book series by Louise Courey Nadeau, and are certain to captivate young readers and their parents. Detail and colour make the images come to life and even tell the story on their own. Familiar characters from Book One appear again which will delight young fans. Of course Odin the warblegrif can’t be left out of any action and Wally the Wizard just wants to get his magic working again. The subtle empowering messages of Book One are amplified here, with songs and end notes to encourage young readers to make their lives magical and to enjoy the positive power of laughter. When Magelica truly believes, trusts, and lets go, she is able to do amazing things, and young readers (and adults!) will benefit from these simple truths. The power to achieve whatever we want is within us, and Magelica’s example helps young readers to believe in themselves and go where life takes them. This is a five-star read for the whole family!
That’s when you know the author has done a good job!

The 2nd book of the series that is so cute. The story continues.. The pages are so brightly illustrated as well as the plot of the story flows smoothly. When reading this to young children or watching them as they read the story, their little faces light up, that's when you know the author has done a good job! I, myself, enjoyed this book!
Magic Is In The Air
Magelica's Voyage is an inspiring, magical tale of a world that I did not want to leave. The author's imagination takes off with vivid magical characters transformed into beautiful illustrations that your child will love. At the Isle Of Dreams anything is possible including Wally the wizard, the benevolent queen, Odin and even a Warblegrif. In the Festival Of Cheer the message is clear; just be yourself and let love be your guide. When you open this book you'll instantly discover that magic is indeed in the air.
Prince William was fighting to steer the boat from the black rocks surrounding an island, but the water was too rough. Just as the boat was about to crash, Will and Goldy leaped into the raging sea. When Magelica dreams of a prince lost on a deserted island, she realizes that it could lead to his rescue. She returns to the Isle of Dreams to tell Queen Raya what she knows. Can they save Prince Will before it’s too late? Will the power of laughter and love be enough?
Who ever heard of a girl being hatched from an egg the colour of sapphires? Magelica doesn’t know where she came from or who she really is. But when she’s transported to the Isle of Dreams in a flying bathtub, she launches into an exciting adventure of discovery. Come fly with Magelica, and discover for yourself the power of imagination, positivity, believing in yourself, and love!
“The Rescue is a beautifully illustrated and beautifully written children’s story with an important message about being happy and staying positive, even in very difficult circumstances. Louise Courey Nadeau presents this gentle lesson in a light-hearted and brilliantly illustrated manner that draws in readers young and old.”
