The Witch's Guide to Cooking with Children; Keith McGowan

The Witch's Guide to Cooking with Children The Witch's Guide to Cooking with Children by Keith McGowan


My rating: 1 of 5 stars
This book starts out so promisingly, but by the end it's just lost it. What happened to the parents? The "parents"? The owner of the pet shop? Was Swift really a dog? Why did Sol feel he wasn't alone at the end? Where were they going?

As I said, this starts out as a nice updating of the Hansel and Gretel story, with the witch having survived to today and still in the business of "children removal". That stays strong for about the first half of the book but after that it's muddled, rushed and leaves too many loose ends.
