"An epic fantasy about a young girl raised by a witch, a swamp monster, and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, who must unlock the powerful magic buried deep inside her. Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this enmagicked girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. To keep young Luna safe from her own unwieldy power, Xan locks her magic deep inside her. When Luna approaches her thirteenth birthday, her magic begins to emerge on schedule--but Xan is far away. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her--even if it means the end of the loving, safe world she's always known. The acclaimed author of The Witch's Boy has created another epic coming-of-age fairy tale destined to become a modern classic"--… (mais)

This is a lovely fairy tale about love. ( )
  KittyCunningham | Apr 26, 2021 |
This is a wonderful book for intermediate or middle school students. It is a thrilling and fantastic book about a society that lives in the Protectorate, and are controlled by a looming force that becomes known as the Sorrow Eater. The Protectorate offers babies to a witch in the woods named Zan, who is thought to be evil, but is actually kindhearted and saves the babies. Zan accidentally enmagics a baby named Luna with moonlight, and this is Luna's journey to learning the powers she possesses and helping the Protectorate become free from the grasps of the Sorrow Eater. This book is very helpful because it can cause one to fall into another realm where magic exists and a strong female lead takes you on an adventure of discovery and justice. I would use this book in ways that students could do a book report on it, and possibly have group disccusions around the themes and charachters within it.

Most of the books that win the Newberry Medal aren’t really my style (too much overt symbolism, clearly meant for young readers and only really appealing to the judges of appropriate literature meant for classrooms), but once and a while the panel of judges hits it out of the park and surprises me. The last time they did so was with Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book (very much not in their typical genre, but very much so in mine), so it’s nice to see them give reward to an author who simply breaks the mold again. Barnhill’s story definitely has a Gaiman-esque turn to it, though she delves fully into a fantasy realm and turns up the volume on her references to traditional fairytales and folklore. At times it feels like reading poetry, due to the lyricism of her language, and this narrative style acts to emphasize the magical undertones of the world she has created. Even though the story begins with a witch, and she remains one of the main characters, the story is really about reimagining the world and breaking the mold through creative thinking and determination (and a little bit of magic to help along the way). This will definitely be a book that I return to again, since it’s a perfect little dose of storybook magic and a reminder that things are not always what they seem. ( )

There was a time when her feet fit neatly on the curve of the earth ... (p. 127-128)
"'Patience has no wing,'" Glerk recited as she walked. / Patience does not run / Nor blow, nor skitter, nor falter. / Patience is the swell of the ocean; / Patience is the sigh of the mountain; / Patience is the shirr of the Bog; / Patience is the chorus of stars, / Infinitely singing.'" (p. 135-136)
Xan closed her eyes and pressed her feet to the ground and felt the magic flow through her fragile bones. She felt herself become light and small and keen. Bright eyes, agile toes, a sharp, sharp mouth. She shook her wings, felt so deep within herself the need to fly she thought she might die of it, and with a high, sad cry of loneliness and missing Luna, she fluttered into the air and slid over the fringe of trees. (p. 226)
... Glerk, who felt that violence, while sometimes necessary, was uncouth and uncivilized. Reason, beauty, poetry, and excellent conversation were his preferred tools for settling disputes. Glerk's spirit, in its essence, was as serene as a bog - life-giving and life-sustaining. (p. 357)
Once upon a time, the Witch received a poem from the Beast of the Bog. Perhaps it was the poem that made the world. Perhaps it was the poem that will end it. Perhaps it is something else entirely. All I know is that the Witch keeps it safe in a locket under her cloak. She belongs to us, but one day her magic will fade and she will wander back into the Bog and we won't have a witch anymore. Only stories. Perhaps she will find the Beast. Or become the Beast. Or become the Bog. Or become a Poem. Or become the world. They are all the same thing, you know.
