    Like a combination of The Worst Witch and The Box of Delights I wish someone had told me sooner that it was set at Christmas because I'm always looking for new Christmas books and I love the fact that this doesn't hinge around Halloween like so many witch books

    When I first saw this book I was around twelve years old I didn't want to read it I saw it again in college when I was a page at a public library I checked it out but never got around to reading it Then I checked it out for a fantasy project on which I am working and I am so sorry I didn't read this book sooner Anna Dale's writing is charming It's not Harry Potter though it does take place in England I love her witches because they are stereotypical witches yet not at the same time and I love that The story is about a boy named Joe who is going to Canterbury to spend Christmas with his mother stepfather and his half sister But the train ride to Canterbury is filled with strange happenings and before Joe knows it he is face to face with real witches One of the witches he meets is a young girl about his age named Twiggy Soon Joe is caught up in a tangled web of good witches bad witches and evil magic If you love fantasy READ THIS BOOK

    35 STARSI found this a pleasant undemanding read with some enjoyable moments On the whole though I wanted so much from it It's not so much that the world building is fairly simplistic compared to say Harry Potter the comparisons are rather inevitable nowadays but that the characters were so underwhelming I liked Joe and Esme and Twiggy and the antagonists are fairly well drawn if rather cliche though I did feel the motives for one of them were thought provoking but the majority of the witches were just so dull they didn't really do anything and even the magic those few times it was performed seemed kind of lackluster It's very old school magic with a few spells here and there some potions sitting around in cozy covens and the like I might not have minded that so much if I actually liked the witches but they were so snooty Add to that some rather uneven plot development and some threads that just didn't really need to be there and I can't really muster than three and a half stars for this That said Dale has a pleasant writing style and I appreciated that there isn't really anything too big and scary going on here so it might be a good one for younger kiddos who aren't uite ready for Harry Potter and its ilk One other note though the story does take place at Christmastime there is very little Christmas y about it beyond a few paragraphs; it has some nice wintery scenes but if you are looking for a Christmas themed story look elsewhere

    I have no idea if this is one of those books that was published on the crest of the Potter wave but I feel it suffers because of the existence of old Harry and his mates The basic setup of boy meets witches is different enough as is the execution but it lacks a lot of the flourishes Rowling brought to her series Not that this is necessarily a bad thing this is a different story entirely after all but a lot of the kids in my class found the plot progressing entirely too slowly for them Some of the stronger readers who raced ahead were much happier because the twists and turns don't happen until the latter third of the book and they're some pretty cool twists and turnsThe explanation of the title and the tying together of what had seemed like insignificant plot threads was also really well executed I felt really satisfied when I finished the book Almost one sitting a 2 hour train ride and then about an hour after dinnerOverall I'd recommend this book as a softer take on a magical world and advise readers to give it a chance the writing is strong and the story has its own pace it wants you to follow Do as it asks

    As an adult it was mostly just OK for me I enjoyed the Harry Potter books much —IMHO they appeal easily to a larger audience while this one is fit for middle graders and youngerAs a kid though around 10 12 I'd probably have loved it There are nice plot twists and seemingly insignificant events actually tying themselves together at the endSo 3 stars it is

    I think i read this book a hundred times as a kid It never gets old LOVE it

    I enjoyed this book It was easy to read and I looked forward to reading it and seeing how the story would unfold I liked the lead characters as well and there were certainly nice messages in the story that didn't feel too heavy handedThat said the plot never felt like it really came together that well The threads weren't woven throughout the book too well and there were several conveniences it seemed that allowed the story to continue to unfold The magical aspect of the world isn't ever explained in much detail and a few of the plot points felt forced So overall an enjoyable book and I think Dale has a very nice easy writing style But this just made me want the story itself to be intricate and comprehensive

    Fun and pleasant; I enjoyed the book but I don't know whether it's one that will stick with me or not I loved the British setting and the winterChristmas touches but a lot of plot threads didn't seem to tie together too well and there weren't too many characters that I really really liked Still I enjoyed it and found it a fun easy read
