The land of the Forbidden Room is dying, and only an outsider princess can restore order and bring the land to life again. Like her mother and grandmother, before her, Belinda has 'The Gift,' but will she have the courage to accept the invitation to enter this strange new land of magic and adventure, wonder . . . and perhaps great danger. 'The Gift' revolves around Todd - the magical guide to adventure, garden fairies, mer-people, would be knights-in-shinning-armor, a lovable wizard, and an evil dragon. This book is a middle grade novel, suitable for readers age eight and above, and is an adventure set for both boys and girls. It is the first in a series of five fantasy novels with a new, imaginative approach to inter-dimensional travel.
