#Review: The Witch's Garden by Louise Lintvelt/Illustrated by Kristin Wiman #FrightFall
Past the mill, over the hill, deep in the wood... A witch's house stood.
Join the friendly troll on an exciting adventure as he sets out to outwit the witch and free the magical creatures trapped in her garden.
I have read and reviewed a few books from this author and was looking forward to reading this book as well. The only problem for me is, I suppose I was expecting more.
This is your typical "ugly witch" where she does evil upon those who come into her area or home. This "witch" does the same but turns magical creatures into a beautiful garden. She then comes upon another who undoes all her work and sets the creatures free. That's the book in a nut shell.
As I said, I was looking for more that I have come to expect from the author. It even seemed rushed at the end. However, her poetry was right on and that was the best part about this book as well as the illustrations that gave breathe to the book.
All in all, still not a bad book and for that, I give it three stars.
