#whimsical and magical
I was lucky to get an arc of Guardians of Magic by the wonderful Chris Riddell which is first in the series of middle grade books called The Cloudhorse Chronicles via Netgalley. I have to admit that at the time I did not think I would get an arc so I pre-ordered the book anyhow. Guardians of Magic is so magical and whimsical there are flying horses, tin men, giants and giant slayers as well as magical items. This is all you need to know and the illustrations of Chris Riddell are so stunning it really gives this wonderful book the edge and if I could I would give it a 10 star waiting but unfortunately I can't but give it a five star. This book has got me hooked I will be auto buying the next book when it is released.
