My ten word Synopsis:
Struggles abound for Alexa, who must save Slightly Above Time.
Slightly Above Time, is packed full of fantasy, whimsy, and not to mention mysterious adventure.
Author and illustrator, Mark Forti, expertly breathes life into a wonderful set of likable characters, including beautiful faeries, anxious sylphs, and scary Oths, and places them in the realm which is not exactly in human "timefulness", but is slightly above it, which includes such areas as Kendlenook Village and Evernaught. Forti also adds another dimension to this tale by including charmingly detailed illustrations sprinkled throughout the book.
Slightly Above Time is a light and refreshing tale of magical adventure that quickly engages both young and old, and whisks them away to another timeless location. The only issue one may have with this tale is that it brings readers to a heart pounding crescendo and leaves readers grasping for more.
