Review by 26kathryn
At around 100 pages this is only a short story. It is aimed at ages 7 and up.It's the story of a boy, Philip, who gets carried off by his kite and ends up on a magical island inhabited by woodland animals.The island has been taken over by an evil witch and her magical army of Growlers. In order to banish the witch and save the island Philip must sneak into the castle and find the magic spell book.Because it's aimed at younger readers the story moved very fast and it seemed like everything was over before it had even began!It was a cute little story that I'm sure young kids would enjoy, but I think older children might find the story too childish for their liking.
