Enchanted Misadventures with Great-Aunt Poppy - Review
Spooky recommendation for this 2021 year!
*AffLink support when purchased!
A typical December for the Alexanders consists of gingerbread baking, movies, and looking at Christmas lights, but after their parents are called in to work, Ava, Nolan, and Charlotte are sent to stay with their most feared relative for a week-Great-Aunt Poppy. Have mom and dad gone mad?
Of course, the children are terrified. Who wouldn't be? No one believes them when they say that Poppy-or Groppy as they call her-is a witch. If the haunted house isn't bad enough, there are thousands of crazy cats, chaotic and deadly spells, and even worse-frightening howls from the woods that grow louder and closer every second. Something deadly lurks outside. Staying alive while living with Groppy for an entire week is-well-impossible!
In order to survive the holiday, it will take all the bravery and wit the kids can muster. But who knows? Things aren't always what they seem! The best holiday surprise this Christmas might be hiding in the most unlikely place imagined!
Spooky is the genre of the year I feel like and sometimes kids think they're ready for scary, spooky, suspense; but in reality they don't want it that scary - this is the BEST recommendation for those kiddos! This was the right amount of spooky-esque and so well written that kids are going to buy in big time. Ava, Nolan, and Charlotte are just like all kids their age. They're about to go stay with a great-aunt they hardly know and not looking forward to this moment whatsoever. Everything their "Groppy" tells them not to do... they do. Ending and resulting in amazing adventures along the way. Of course with disagreements and disobedience comes getting into a little bit of trouble, but throughout all of that they learn how to be together, work together, and use teamwork.
The magical creation that is perfect for the holiday season, but slightly eerie.. only in a slightly way.
These are a few of my favorite reviews I read on Goodreads!
