"In a time and place apart from our own there is a dying planet governed by the rules of Magick.
The mysterious rose perched atop the northernmost mountain is dying with the planet; if it dies, the whole world will fall into darkness.
A young frog called Spark spends his days creating beautiful paintings in his cozy underground home.
After a while, he can no longer ignore the looming changes coming to his land.
With fewer flies to eat each day, Spark musters the courage to open his eyes and see the true nature of the destruction ravaging his beloved planet.
Under the watchful eyes of the greedy, dragon-like Apovil creature, Spark decides to seek advice from Iris Buttergrow, the oldest and wisest faery in the land.
After the faery Iris Buttergrow reveals the shocking truth behind the impending doom of his planet, Spark embarks on a journey to save the Lost Rose.
Spark's crosses vast deserts full of holes and dried seabeds parched by the calamity are just examples of the destruction.
On the way he must find the only Magick in the world that can save the planet...the rare blue Pixie Dust.
However, Spark's journey isn't just about traveling miles.
In fact, the key to the planet's survival is not outside of Spark, but within him.
Will he find the hidden strength within himself before it's too late?
If he fails, the entire Magickal world will fall into decay and be lost forever.

Great reading experience
I would recommend The Legend of the Lost Rose because it is an easy read. The book is filled with surprises. It hits every creative angle possible. The interactive pictures were an awesome feature. As an adult I loved the option to be able to purchase the artwork shown throughout the book. The song was a nice surprise and it gives you an option to set the scene before you begin reading. If you have creative children it would give them an option to tell the story in their eyes before reading to see what happens. All in all it was a magical experience.
We need more Sparks on this Planet.
I was not expecting to read such an amazing story, especially at such a low price. This is a delightfully written fantasy story, full of metaphors and beautiful messages. It expresses the challenges that our planet is currently facing and how our kids will have to face even worse challenges than the ones we are facing right now. The earth is being destroyed by humans and our future generations, in this case, Spark will have to deal with the effect or consequences of our greed and our lack of appreciation towards the earth.
