How to Save a Queendom

Life’s never been kind to twelve-year-old Stub. Orphaned and left in the care of the cruel Matron Tratte, Stub’s learned that the best way to keep the peace is to do as she’s told. No matter that she’s bullied and that her only friend is her pet chicken, Peck, Stub’s accepted the fact that her life just isn’t made for adventure. Then she finds a tiny wizard in her pocket.

Orlen, the royal wizard to Maradon’s queen, is magically bound to Stub. And it’s up to her to ferry Orlen back to Maradon Cross, the country’s capital, or else the delicate peace of the queendom will crumble under the power of an evil wizard queen. Suddenly Stub’s unexciting life is chock-full of adventure. But how can one orphan girl possibly save the entire queendom? From critically acclaimed author Jessica Lawson comes a whimsical fantasy set in a matriarchal world full of adventure.

"Stub and Beaman learn that the 100-year peace pact between Maradon’s kingdom and another, Wintrel, comes with a hefty price tag. And with their help, the queen must decide how to use newly discovered gifts to save Maradon. This jam-packed fantasy from Lawson (Under the Bottle Bridge) brims with delicious language — "humming honey," "blue smoke smackers" — while enchanting characters, rich worldbuilding, and energetic pacing frame its rousing action." — Publishers Weekly
