THE WITCH’S GUIDE TO COOKING WITH CHILDREN
Release Date: September 1st, 2009
When Sol and Connie Blink move to Grand Creek, one of the first people to welcome them is an odd older woman, Fay Holaderry, and her friendly dog, Swift, who carries a very strange bone in his mouth. Sol knows a lot more than the average eleven-year-old, so when he identifies the bone as human, he and Connie begin to wonder if their new neighbor is up to no good.
In a spine-tingling adventure that makes them think twice about who they can trust, Sol and Connie discover that solving mysteries can be a dangerous game—even for skilled junior sleuths.
Eleven year-old Solomon and eight year-old Constance Blinks, Sol and Connie for short, have just moved into their new house. That’s where they meet old and odd Fay Holaderry and her friendly dog Swift. Swift carries a very strange, eerie-looking bone in his mouth. At first Fay seems like a normal old woman, even if she’s slightly odd, so who cares? That’s before they stumble upon her diary. Can Sol and Connie figure out what old Fay Holaderry is up to now? Before it’s too late?
Before I started reading The Witch’s Guide to Cooking with Children, I thought it was about cooking. Boring…. But to my ultimate surprise, the book was filled with adventure. Holaderry’s diary was the funniest and the best part of the book. There was only one problem, in one part it was a bit confusing, but after I reread it, everything made more sense.
Author Keith McGowan tells a splendid story inspired from an old fairy tale – Hansel and Gretel. I recommend this book to fans of fairy tales and anyone looking for a fun and adventurous read!
