MeenaMeena by Sine van Mol
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book was fine, but I have some reservations about just leaving this around for the kids to read. One of the illustrations (a cauldron with limbs hanging out) would have frightened me as a child. I also feel unsure that the children in the story learned their lesson. Vandalism isn't just wrong because the woman isn't really a witch. Throwing things over the fence seemed a little intense to me. Isn't that a hate crime?

  1. I like your review. It's good. The book does sound like it might be a bit difficult to explain to children and makes me wonder why the author would think it's okay add those things.
