The Lucky Diamond

@ Valerie Murphy

Five orphaned children and a magical princess who is losing her powers. Can they survive the evil queen who wants them dead?

When ten-year-old Cathy finds a diamond, she thinks she and her four orphaned siblings will finally have enough to eat and new clothes to wear. But when the diamond reveals a face and starts to talk, Cathy realises she’s found something far more precious than a jewel. Lucky, magical daughter of the King of the Diamonds, asks for Cathy’s help and she, her twin brother Alan, and their three older sisters agree to accompany the Diamond on her journey home. But Lucky hasn’t told them that their route lies across a dangerous enchanted land, or that an evil queen who hates the Diamonds – and Lucky most of all – is determined to do anything to stop Lucky and her new friends from reaching their destination.

With Lucky’s powers rapidly waning, can five young orphans resist the dark lure of Queen Rose’s magic long enough to save their friend?
