Book Review: Wise Child by Monica Furlong

Greetings My Lovelies!


It’s Monday so that’s means that it’s time once again for me to do a book review.  Yea! So here’s how this works. I rate books on a scale of coffee cups….because I love coffee.  Also there will be no spoilers in these reviews.


0 cups= I hated it/couldn’t finish

1 cup= did like but finished bc I’m stubborn

2 cups= meh

3 cups= Not the best but interesting enough to finish

4 cups= I really like it.  



5 Cups


General Overview:

In a small village, probably in England there lives a little girl called Wise Child.  She lives with her grandmother because her mother abandoned her and her father is out to sea.  She is a useless child who is spoiled and thinks only of herself.  After her grandmother dies, she is presented to the village to see who is willing to take her in, one Juniper, a strange woman who lives on the outskirts of town does.  Wise Child doesn’t want to live with her because everyone knows she’s a witch.  But she does and learns about herself, her past, and the true nature of magic.


My Thoughts:

I got this book from a friend of mine ages ago, and instantly fell in love.  Juniper was and still is someone that I strive to be.  She is calm and kind and helps everyone.  If I were to be honest, I’m probably a bit more like Wise Child.  Besides all that, it’s a great story about personal growth, kindness against fear, and what makes a family.  Not bad for a middle school level book.


Reread factor:

This is a book that sits quietly on your shelf until you come across it one day.  It gently draws you in for a nice easy read that doesn’t loose any of its joy and wonder on multiple readings.  It’s also a good one to read with your kids.
