Read full description of the books:
I actually read a section of this book before it was published. A short story that became the final chapter of "The Willow Tree's Daughter" was published in the NSW School Magazine, where I was a member of the editorial team.
"The Willow Tree's Daughter" is a perfect fantasy for middle-school aged kids. It's witty and wise and inventive, and it turns some fairy tale conventions on their head—while holding them in the deepest of respect and understanding.
The titular character, Betony, is the daughter of a king who fell in love with the living spirit of a willow tree—a dryad—who he saves when her tree is dying. Betony grows up strong and smart and determined to make her own way as a princess who will ultimately inherit her kingdom.
There are two sequels to "The Willow Tree's Daughter"—"Windrider" and "The Centre of Magic", which are equally as good (although a little darker—more is at stake for Betony and her family and kingdom, especially in "The Centre of Magic"). Look out also for the "spin off", "Victor's Quest", which is to be republished by Walker Books Australia and UK fairly soon, with its own sequel, "Victor's Challenge" to follow. (Victor is a sweet but gormless and not very bright prince who fails in the quest for Betony's hand. Pamela felt sorry for him, so she gave him his own book—and happy ending.)
