In the best tradition of William Steig, Aesop’s Fables and Tales of Beedle the Bard, this second book is Ruthy’s Ballard’s Tales by Moons-Light series spins seven beautifully written tales from a distant, two-mooned planet.

Margie and her younger brother are snatched from their beds by an evil sorceress who whisks them off to her castle far, far away. Where are they and how will they get home? Can Margie, with her clever, scientific mind figure it out?

A boy named Bai tries to save the village of Curimicu from certain disaster. It’s a race against the clock. He must speak up before it’s too late. But if he finds the courage, can he prevent the ecological catastrophe that looms ahead?

A wicked fortune-teller is terrorizing a town. Can the king’s son expose him for the evil trickster he is? Or will the so-called “astrovisionary” cast a spell on his father as well, swapping logic for sloppy thinking, to find his way into the palace?

Rich in science, yet wonderfully magical, each story carries a timeless lesson, with diverse young protagonists who struggle against daunting challenges and emerge victorious. Suitable for children of all ages, this book is best read under the covers, with a flashlight on!
