Olha Voronchykhina. "Try monety", schebpak ta inshi pryjemnosti. ("Three Coins", Youbet and Other Nice Things)
"Fairy tales, legends and various miracles swirl around us. And who cares if someone is 9 or 99 years old – if he/she is able to notice everything that makes life brighter and more multicolored? Therefore, this book is written for those who have not grown out of dreams. But for the protagonist, all the characters are absolutely real – just all of them. And if you 're attentive – you may soon meet some of them in your life."
"Three Coins" is a work of fantasy intended for teenage audience. I tried to write it with humor, easily. And I referred to the sacred knowledge of the Ukrainian people of pre-Christian times – to mystical beings and creatures. It was a big piece of job, I won't lie to you. All my characters come from Ukrainian myths and legends..." Olha Voronchyhina

Совершенно очаровательная книга. Прекрасный легкий язык. Достойная альтернатива слегка затасканному Гарри Потеру, хотя уверена, автор такой задачи перед собой не ставил:) Добрая светлая книга с фольклорным колоритом. Единственно что расстроило - "Конец первой части". Жду вторую. Успехов!
