Jake’s Quest for the Five Stones is a fun and creative story with a really important message. It’s a charming tale about Jake the elf who, with the aid of five gemstones, learns that love is the most important thing in life and the key that opens all doors. The story is geared towards kids, but parents will like it too. I thought it was cool how animals and the healing qualities of crystals were used to help tell the story. Plus, the beautiful illustrations are as vivid as the writing. I’m looking forward to more from Hanit Benbassat.
