The Gold Dust Letters

(1994)
(The first book in the Investigators of the Unknown series)
A novel by

 
 
While searching for her fairy godmother, a young girl uncovers a world of magic

It starts with chocolates. Dreaming of a box of chocolates that never empties, Angela writes a letter to her fairy godmother asking for one. To her surprise, the fairy writes back! A letter appears on her mantelpiece from "Pilaria of the Kingdom of the Faeries," written on ancient parchment with purple ink, and covered in a gold dust that vanishes as soon as it flies into the air. Is this really a letter from the land of magic? And if so, what does it mean?

Angela and her two best friends begin investigating the mystery, searching Angela's house for clues. But out of the blue, more letters appear on Angela's mantelpiece. Pilaria is lonesome, and as curious about the girls' world as they are about her kingdom. What they learn from their correspondence with this enchanting godmother will change everything they know - about magic and reality - forever.

This ebook features a personal history by Janet Taylor Lisle including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's own collection.
