Destiny's Gift

by Natasha Anastasia Tarpley, Illustrated by Adjoa J. Burrowes - £8.99  Lee & Low Books (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781600606441 | ISBN 10: 160060644x

Destiny loves words, and her favorite place in the world is Mrs. Wade's bookstore, where words abound. On Saturdays, Destiny helps Mrs. Wade at the store, and at day's end they relax together, drinking tea and reading. Then one Saturday Mrs. Wade does not seem her usual self, and Destiny later learns the store may have to close.
 
Destiny is determined not to let this happen. As she works to help keep the store open, she also creates an imaginative gift for Mrs. Wade that captures the warmth and special magic of the store forever.
 
Destiny's Gift is a heartwarming celebration of friendship and creativity, and a touching tribute to a child's love for reading and the power of words.
