One thing we have done a lot of this summer is ready and even though it’s hard to admit we go back to school next week. This summer my oldest kiddo has fallen into one of the newest children’s book titles from HarperCollins Children’s Books called The Thickety by J.A. White .
This spellbinding book will take your child into the life of Kara Westfall. Kara was five years old, her mother was convicted of the worst of all crimes: witchcraft. Years later, Kara and her little brother, Taff, are still shunned by the people of their village, who believe that nothing is more evil than magic . . . except, perhaps, the mysterious forest that covers nearly the entire island. It has many names, this place. Sometimes it is called the Dark Wood, or Sordyr’s Realm. But mostly it’s called the Thickety.
The villagers live in fear of the Thickety and the terrible creatures that live there. But when an unusual bird lures Kara into the forbidden forest, she discovers a strange book with unspeakable powers. A book that might have belonged to her mother. And that is just the beginning of the story.
The Thickety: A Path Begins is the start of a thrilling new tale about a girl, the Thickety, and the power of magic. Every heart bounding moment will leave your children wanting more until the very end and it’s quickly becoming one of our newest favorites.
This book is meant for children who are older and the creatures in the book are thrilling and are anything but sweet. It’s a great story for girls and my daughter quickly found herself deep in the Thickety.
