“Eli and the Mystery of the Hallowshine Dragon” by Eve Cabanel

admin2021January 8, 2023


A wonderful and captivating story for youngsters!

Eve Cabanel’s debut 44 page children’s picture book, “Eli and the Mystery of the Hallowshine Dragon,” is an imaginative fantasy story of a moon elf’s journey to reverse a dragon’s curse.

The story is set in a beautiful, mysterious and enchanted forest, Cucuruzzu, where lives a moon elf named Eli, along with her friend Luna. The story starts off with Luna’s baby bunny, Doudou turning into hard rock candy by accidentally falling on one of the magic sugar crystals that coat the forest at night that were created from a sad dragon’s tears. Then begins a journey through lands of unicorns, fairies, magical rainbows and dragons to reverse the terrible curse……

The story is most suitable for children aged 3 to 8 and is very well written without talking down to them at all. The story is extremely well-supported by the wonderful colorful illustrations of Ekaterina Ilchenko. Young children would love to have this story read to them while following it by looking at the illustrations and the accompanying map.

“Eli and the Mystery of the Hallowshine Dragon” illustrates to young readers valuable lessons about the power of friendship, love, acceptance, courage and belief in oneself.

Hopefully another installment of the story might emerge in the future which focuses on the characters, the forest and the curse prior to and leading up to the events of “Eli and the Mystery of the Hallowshine Dragon.” I see the potential for a children’s series.

Author Eve Cabanel was raised in the French countryside by the woods where she played in suspended tree houses amongst wild forest animals, like her story’s character Eli. She had a goat and pet chicken that would follow her everywhere and encountered foxes, deer, and hedgehogs in her daily forest adventures. A writer and beauty blogger, Eve is the published author of an adult non-fiction self-help book, “Organic Beauty Recipes by Eve – The complete guide to DIY natural beauty.”
