The Super Happy Magic Forest is a pretty groovy place where a bunch of super happy critters are having way too much fun. That is until the Magic Crystals of Life are stolen and the Super Happy Magic Forest erupts into chaos. An odd collection of five heroes are chosen to rescue the Magic Crystals of Life from the Goblin Tower. And so Hoofius (an under-dressed satyr), Herbert (bears a striking resemblance to the Travelocity gnome), Twinkle (the hyperactive fairy), Blossom (the reluctant unicorn), and Trevor (the clueless mushroom) embark on a journey to overcome evil and save happy. Alas, all is not what it seems. Turns out the evil was where they least expected it. Super Happy Magic Forest is like an epic quest with video game effects for added non-stop excitement. Think Super Mario meets the Fellowship of the Ring – for kids. Long’s simplified saga starring five capricious warriors frolicking through hilarious cartoon illustrations give this book an engaging comic book style that’s a joy to read. Super Happy Magic Forest is a super fun adventure full of enough hidden jokes and surprises to keep young readers happily entertained.
