Reviewed by Esme, Age 10

Solomon and Constance Blink----Sol and Connie for short----have just moved into the small town of Schoneberg, leaving all their friends (and a very special cat) behind. All is dull. That is, until they meet Fay Holaderry and her dog, Swift. Really a dastardly witch, the very one who lured Hansel and Gretel into her cottage, Sol and Connie must foil her before itís too late.

This was a good book. Itís a little scary, kind of funny, and a great mystery (about who Sol and Connie can trust, at least). Itís suspenseful and amazing, though I didnít find the ending very satisfying. All and all, however, this was a very good first book for Keith McGowan.

The Witchís Journal was a good book. I give it 4 stars and recommend it for ages 9-12.
