The Players

Magelica – a green-haired, winged girl; on a journey to save Prince William

Gri – Magelica’s loving caretaker

Tris – Magelica’s pet dragon

Odin – messenger of the Isle of Dreams

Wally – the wizard of the Isle of Dreams

Queen Raya – ruler of Isle of Dreams; kind to Magelica; searching for her lost son

Prince William – Queen Raya’s son; missing for 9 days


This second installment in the Magelica series continues to build upon the first book. The chapters have gotten a little longer, but are still manageable for young independent readers beginning the transition into chapter books. The illustrations are just as beautiful as in the first book.

The story also builds upon itself. At the end of Magelica’s Voyage, Magelica returns home knowing one day she’ll go back to the Isle of Dreams. Who knew it would happen so soon?

Through a dream, Magelica realizes Prince William is lost and stranded. She and Tris quickly return to the Isle of Dreams to convene with Queen Raya. It is the beginning of a rescue plan, but all of the people of the island will need to be reminded what it is to laugh and love again.

Magelica’s bravery leads her closer to her own personal quest to find out who she is.

***** About the Author *****

Louise Courey Nadeau

Passionate about empowering and inspiring children around the world, Louise Courey Nadeau, born and raised in Montreal, Canada, and mother of two girls and two boys created her first fairy tale Magelica’s Voyage, with the second book in the series, The Rescue, launched June 2015.

“Through life’s trials and tribulations, I always believed I could. With theMagelica book series my goal is to take young girls and their parents and teachers on empowering adventures and to inspire and encourage them to believe that they are amazing just the way they are, and to discover the power of love, positivity, and believing in themselves.

Magelica’s Voyage is inspired by my life, my family, and the special people and places I love”, says Courey Nadeau. “All of the characters in the story, including Magelica are reflections of the person I am- the wacky part, the funny part, the philosopher, the teacher, the caretaker, the chosen mom, the giver, and of course the dreamer. What would Magelica do, I often ask, and I get the answer. When you fly with Magelica, the possibilities are endless and there is magic all around.”
