Review by A.L.

I had the most wonderful time reading Junebug and the Gumbo Garden. The story let me transcend in to my inner child and I read it cover to cover in one sitting. I think it will thoroughly engage youngsters who are around the age of Junebug – boys and girls. Kids who have some mysticism in their culture will probably especially enjoy. I admit that at 62 years old – I was unable to put down the book until I found out what was really up with Ms. Gautier. Love the values it imparts – Do what you think is right even when it isn’t popular with your friends – Prioritize your parents’ wishes -. As a pet lover, I was thrilled when the dog was the hero. At first I thought it might be too scary for kids (the cage, snakes) but it was no grimmer than Grimms tales and it did have a happy ending. Masterful.

Just wanted you to know that my boys enjoyed your book! I was fully expecting a twist where the old lady was not a witch and there’s a nice little sermon at the end about not judging a book by the cover etc. It was so funny and really unexpected that she was really was bad! LOL! That surprised my oldest son….he liked that it wasn’t at all predictable. We all enjoyed.

Review by K.D.

Junebug was moving and had a witch next door as his new neighbor named Ms. Gautier. Junebug’s mom talked with him about helping Ms Gautier. Junebug agreed to help even though he heard from his friends that Ms Gautier would put a spell on him. He didn’t find out until later that his friends were right. This was a very good book and I recommend every kid read it.
