The Girl in the Mirror

Horla's Visit


When Horla’s best friend Carar moves to another town, she wishes for a new friend, one that comes from a parallel world to Ivarnio, a parallel world where she becomes invisible and has special powers... A parallel world called Earth.

On Earth, Lucy sits sad and lonely in her bedroom, having waved off her own best friend Eleanor for a new life in Liverpool. Suddenly, Horla’s face appears in Lucy’s dressing table mirror, and quickly a unique friendship is formed.

Getting up to all kinds of mischief that baffles children and adults alike, together they are the perfect pair. That is, until, Eleanor says she misses Lucy terribly and begs to see her. Soaring up into the sky, Horla and Lucy set off on an adventure to meet her, and when Horla tries to help her make new friends, Eleanor is set the challenge of carrying out a very dangerous rescue; a rescue no other child would ever dare to attempt...

I’m loving this book so far! I’m half way through and I’ve laughed out loud more times than I can count! Lovely first book. I hope there’s gonna be another one!

by Michaela Fowler

I purchased this book to give as a Christmas present, and thought I would flip through it to make sure it was suitable, but ended up reading the whole book.

Good story, really funny in places : a mix of adventure, humour ( some subtle, some slapstick), with well-drawn characters and an underlying theme of ‘doing the right thing’.

It is also an attractive book, printed on good quality paper with a decent- sized print and distinctive chapter headings.

Thoroughly recommend this book.

What could be better than having a best friend that does good deeds with her magical powers? 'The Girl in the Mirror' is a 'cracker-doo-doos' read! Would highly recommend!

by Kenny Chapman

What an absolutely fantastic book. I highly recommend for all the family. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. What a brilliant read!

I received this book as a Christmas present and I was hooked from start to finish. It’s a lovely and funny story which is beautifully written. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone.

Got this book for my daughter for Christmas, it was sooo much fun. Perfect for a 9 year old girl. The fact that it was only recently written gave it even more credibility and it was really easy for my daughter to relate to. The language used kept us entertained from start to end. We can't wait for the second one to come out!

I bought this at Christmas and found it very enjoyable. I was very excited to see what happened next and in fact I had read the book in two sittings. I look forward to the sequel and would recommend this book to anyone

by Christine Grant

Excellent book! My Granddaughter and I enjoyed this so much. The quality of the book, the illustrations, the fun element, altogether a great book by a first time author. Looking forward to the next!

by Mrs A D

This was a Christmas present for my daughter, 10. We read it together, and both laughed out loud a lot! It was perfect for her age and she could relate to many of the circumstances - highly recommended.
