Little Angel's Journey

Dzvinka Hayda's new book, "Natalie's Journey to the Land of Fairies," is now available for purchase on Amazon.com!

Natalia and her cat, Mitsya, live in a lovely, little yellow cottage on the edge of an untraveled forest. Fairies live there. Or so Natalia's been told. One day, while playing with Mitsya in their beautiful garden, Natalia hears the magical melodies of a red bird. Enchanted, she follows the red bird to a golden gate. She meets the guard of the gate, a skeptical, little elf. Behind the gate lies Natalia's inspiring journey of adventure and friendship. Award winning author and illustrator Dzvinka Hayda writes and illustrates a delightful tale of a brave, young girl's venture into a new world.

Check out some illustrations from this lovely new book by clicking on the Special Previews link on the Photos page.
