The Wishing Well: Another Weaver Tale by Kai Strand
I had won this book from Kathy at I Am A Reader, Not A Writer blog last October 2012. I just finished reading it. I had not read any of Kai Strand books before. This was good and different twist on a Cinderella type story. It is aimed at readers 8-12 years old.
It has lots of poems or tales in the story itself. It is a enjoyable story and has a lot of good lessons in it. I was most impressed with Molly's good friend Riddle.
Molly is the youngest of three girls. She is treated like a Cinderella by her own mother and sisters. She is given so much work to do every day. She cooks, cleans, does laundry and has to put up with verbal abuse daily.
Her friend Riddle comes over after her family leaves and helps Molly to her work so they can go off and play together with all the other children. Riddle does not have to help Molly.
Molly is only 11 years old and has been treated different by her mom all her life. I wanted to scream at her mom for the way she treats Molly.
