Book Review/Giveaway: The Weaver. Ends Feb 11th

The Weaver written by Kai Strand

About the Book: In a town of storytellers, Mary suffers through her third year of Novice Word Weaving. Mary thinks her troubles are over when she meets a gnome-elf who grants her a wish.  But instead of weaving a better story, she’s weaving strange yarn charms to accompany her still pathetic tales.

My Review: This is a book that truly captures the reader’s imagination. Mary Wordsmith wish is to be able to weave a tale just like her mother Abigail. When a little blue creature that looks like an unfortunate cross between a goblin and an elf grinned up at Mary and took her bottle of milk, he decided to grant her a wish in exchange for the milks. She couldn’t believe her luck and her wish was to weave a yarn as beautiful as her mother.

This is a great book that keeps you wanting to know what’s going to happen next.

Did Mary’s wish given by the little blue creature work? Did Mary’s storytelling improve? You have to read the book to find out. If you love fantasy books you would love The Weaver. I highly recommend this book.

  2. This sounds like a lot of fun. shows the power of a wish, and makes me think about what I would wish for (given one wish).

  6. Well, now I have to find out what happened with Mary’s wish! Would this be appropriate to read aloud to my mature 5 and a half year old? At some point she’ll cringe when I refer to her as “mature” :).

    • Kevin, I think you could read aloud to a 5 year old. Some of the language might be a bit beyond her year, but in context by a good reader is how kids learn, isn’t it? And I don’t think she’ll cringe until she’s 30.

  7. The synopsis of the book sounds intriguing. As a fellow “word weaver”, I would love to find out what happens to young Mary and share this story with my twins. Sounds like a perfect bedtime story.
