Eleven-year-old Maddy loved working in her parents’ bookstore… especially when joined by her pet flying toad Ralph. But that was before the mysterious Thimblewitch turned her mom & dad into kangaroo rats!
Now Maddy’s on the adventure of a lifetime. To save her parents, she’ll need to sneak past an army of spider-goblins, scarecrow warriors, and much more… Fortunately, an assortment of new friends await, including the cloud cartographers Harry and Silvio, a bear and raccoon who explore the world in their moon-balloon. They’ll help her along the way, but in the end, the fate of everyone will depend on Maddy’s courage, compassion, and creativity.
Full of surprises and stunning artwork, Maddy Kettle is a truly magical debut for Spectrum-Award-winning cartoonist Eric Orchard. Climb aboard and let your imagination soar!
I received a free copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I liked this book. It was full of imagination, love, fun and friendship. The illustrations were amazingly detailed and engaging to look at. It would be a wonderful book for an adult to read to their kids. The only thing was the pages seemed a little out of order, not sure if it was my copy or not. I did not take into account when making my rating though.
Overall a really good book for young children.
four out of five stars.
