Critic’s Love Jane F. Collen’s Enjella Uprooted and the Enjella Adventure Series:
“Who doesn’t love a tooth fairy! Especially one so inspiring and heartwarming as Enjella. A creative and enlightening way to teach children about choice, self-esteem and following your dreams. Enjella becomes a role model for young girls as she sparkles and shines while choosing her path in life.”
Ashley Papa, news writer and Producer, Fox News Channel
“Fun, fairy adventures for tweens who appreciate frills, sparkles and a clever female protagonist.”
Kirkus Reviews www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/jane-f-collen/enjella-uprooted/
“Enjella’s example will encourage readers that they have the power to achieve their hearts’ desire no matter what; that there is good in the world; and that there will be people along the way who will help them reach their biggest dreams. Through Enjella’s example of nimble resilience, she also shows kids and tweens how to deal with bullies that come in the form of an authority figure.”
Cannes nominated filmmaker and screenwriter Nikki Roberts
“Enjella’s courageous story is destined to become a fairy tale classic! This modern-day SHEro epitomizes Girl Power in every sense of the word. Enjella is a celebration of what every girl in the 21st century should aspire to be: bold, beautiful and audaciously smart.”
Miss United States 2013 Candiace Dillard
“Enjella Uprooted is a riveting adventure for kids and kids-at-heart. Collen creates a singular magical world where a rigid rules, mysterious bureaucracy and personal jealousies abound. In the tradition of characters like Anne of Green Gables, Harry Potter’s Hermoine and Little Women’s Jo March, plucky and ernest Enjella dares to question the status quo and forger her own path to happiness and personal fulfillment.”
“What a bewitching and fully realized world Jane Collen has created in Enjella Uprooted! Young readers will be transfixed as they travel with Enjella through her fairy adventures—her mishaps and her tooth-fairy missions—in a world that is at once familiar and fantastic. In quickly paced scenes, with dynamic dialogue and good humor, Collen gives kids more than a story; here’s an extensive and enchanted universe where they can get deliciously lost.”
Anna Monardo, author of Falling in Love with Natassia, and Courtyard of Dreams
“You can’t help but fall in love with first class tooth fairy, Enjella. Come along with Enjella as she flutters from one adventure to the next, sparkling teeth and sparkling the lives of the children she meets along her route. An enchanting tale of finding one’s self.”
Deb Chouinard, 3rd grade teacher, Westfield, Mass
