Rating: 5 out of 5 stars Genre: Mystery Age Recommended: 15 and up I recently visited Australia during my summer holidays and my dad secretly arranged a meeting with one of my favorite authors, Ms. Ellie Marney, at a bookstore in Melbourne. SO YEAH, I JUST KIND OF MET HER!! She was wonderful and gracious and spent about thirty minutes with me, discussing books, sharing author and book recommendations, and much more.

I was always one of those kids who was genuinely convinced that teddy bears came alive at night when everyone else was asleep, and that fairies lived at the bottom of the garden.
