5.0 out of 5 stars We Love It, 28 May 2009
Having started to read the Worst Witch books, we got this as a treat to watch. Though different than the written series, it was fun to watch and I think better done than some other fantasy movies and television programs. This is definitely geared more to girls than boys but my girls enjoyed it as much as the Harry Potter films--though they are just starting to read those books so I suspect they will like the movies more upon getting more into the series. We enjoyed this as a family and I do recommend it for family viewing.
Dewberry and the Lost Chest of Paragon (Fairy Chro&hellip by J H Sweet
We have been enjoying the many books in this series. This one was a little more complex than the previous adventures and finds Dewberry tracking down a chest containing lost wisdom and knowledge.

This book made my children think and they seem now to be "thinking before leaping" because they don't want to make a mistake as big as the one Dewberry made. I like the "growing up" stage they are going through and a book like this is something they are well able to relate to.

I like the personalities of the characters, particularly the children--they are helpful and considerate. When not tracking down the clues to solve the mystery of the "message in the transom" they are doing bake sale fundraisers and helping to paint the town square gazebo. They are having fun on their summer break even without expensive equipment or playthings. The reminds me of a much simpler time and I believe sets a good example for the children of today. The action of the book is very gentle, with the characters using their… Read more
