A lovely children’s book written by Trevor Forest.
I have to say I love reading children’s books and this one thrilled me that I had to keep reading! There was adventure, suspense and comedy too within the story – I loved the parrot and the wand!
Molly is nine and can only take her witches’ promise when she is ten, however she is granted special permission on this occasion to save her parent’s from the VOID. Molly’s granny – Granny Whitewand (a lovely but much feared witch) accompanies Molly to the department store where she buys her witches clothes and her wand. She takes her to the place where the VOID can be found, but this is as far as she can go with Molly.
This is Molly’s task to complete alone otherwise she will see only one of her parent’s again. She cannot fail! Unlike other stories, here we see a community where being a witch doesn’t have to be a secret and that is great! It shows the author has ‘thought’ out of the box and is original.
Some quirky things I wished I had: a talking wand, a broomstick that would work, a not-so-snotty parrot (who is fantastic by the way!) and a great granny like Molly’s! A book for all ages and not just for children, so go ahead and buy this book folks!
One thing I forgot to mention and I was so disappointed, then I was ecstatic – the ending is actually not the ending and there is book no.2 and no.3 of Molly’s adventure – Hooray!
