Willa of the Wood by Robert Beatty
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a Digital Review Copy of this book from Disney Hyperion and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Reader, they had me at river otters.
Willa of the Wood is the engaging story of a young girl possessed of forest magic. Like so much of what Robert Beatty has given us in the past, this heroine is a source of hope and inspiration, set in an atmosphere of mystery, wonder, and strife. This is a book for children growing up in our present day, a novel in which children are encouraged to question social order and norms and come to their own conclusions about what is good and right and fair. Is hatred of others or of the different ever the right path? Willa learns to question this thought. A wonderful children's story with a sense of suspense, this was a delightful read. Plus, OTTERS!
I can heartily recommend this book.
