Description
The Wrinkled Crown by Anne Nesbet
FROM MASTER STORYTELLER ANNE NESBET, AUTHOR OF THE CABINET OF EARTHS AND A BOX OF GARGOYLES COMES A TALE OF MUSIC AND FRIENDSHIP SET AGAINST AN AGE-OLD WAR BETWEEN MAGIC AND SCIENCE.

In the enchanted hills of the village of Lourka, almost-twelve-year-old Linny breaks an ancient law. In Lourka, girls are forbidden to so much as touch the town's namesake musical instrument before their twelfth birthday, or else risk being spirited away. But Linny can't resist the call, so she builds a lourka herself.

When the curse meant for her strikes her best friend instead, Linny must leave her home behind to try to set things right. Along with her father's young apprentice, Elias, Linny travels from the magical wrinkled country to the scientific land of the Plain, where she finds herself at the center of an epic battle between the logical and the magical.

Anne Nesbet's lovely and inimitable writing brings to life the irrepressible heroine, Linny, as she embarks on an adventure of a lifetime.
