Sometimes the cover of a book grabs your attention right away and you think.. I want to read that one!! Hapenny Magick was that way for me. Such darling illustrations. I wanted to be transported to the world of Hapennys! Geared toward elementary aged children, some of the elements of the magic may be frightful to smaller children and it may not hold their attention span.
Maewyn Bridgpost is the tiniest hapenny which is a race of tiny people. A servant to Gelbane her guardian. She learns that Gelbane is a troll and Hapennies just happen to be a troll delicacy!
Hapenny Magick is a delightful read. It is about a young hapenny who discovers that things aren't what they seem as she finds her place in the world. The story is full of familiar magical beings such as wizards, trolls, hapennies and even a giant. The storyline is inspiring but it also will bring laughs. The story is geared for children, but teens can enjoy it too. All together this book is a great read. 5 stars
