Book Review - The Wild Magic Trilogy: Begone the Raggedy Witches

The Wild Magic Trilogy: Begone the Raggedy Witches

About the Book

When witches kidnap her dad, Mup is swept up in a wild tide of magic that carries her to another world. Can she reunite her family and find her way back?

On the night that Aunty dies, the raggedy witches come for Mup’s family. Pale, cold, and relentless, the witches will do anything for the tyrannical queen who has outlawed most magic and enforces her laws with terror and cruelty — and who happens to be Mup’s grandmother. When witches carry off her dad, Mup and her mam leave the mundane world to rescue him. But everything is odd in the strange, glittering Witches Borough, even Mam. Even Mup herself. In a world of rhyming crows, talking cats, and golden forests, it’s all Mup can do to keep her wits about her. And even if she can save her dad, Mup’s not sure if anything will ever be the same again. First in a new trilogy by Irish author Celine Kiernan, this tale of family and forbidden magic charts a fresh path through the landscape of beloved fantasy tradition — and promises to bewitch any reader in search of stories to love.

My Take on the Book
This was a fun read with characters that are well developed. I liked the main character, she is a great heroine who has great characteristics that you will love your kids to see. The book explores important topics such as family, self-determination and responsibility to others. It is a great book for upper elementary and middle school readers. The book was an easy read that really moved from beginning to end. As I read it I found that I wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen next! The book has a little bit of everything in it from humor, action and more, something for anyone!
