Latest Read: The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill

This lovely book was recommended to me by my ten year old daughter. It has a good witch, a sweet but tiny dragon, a wise monster as old as time and a village full of sorrow. The protagonist is a little girl who was enmagicked by mistake when she was a baby and now lives with the good witch. She does not remember that she came from the village but that secret comes out along with the secret of the volcano that burst five hundred years ago and changed the lives of everyone.
I was enthralled. It is beautifully written - childlike not childish. I would recommend this book to all children and to the young at heart.
