Review: Winnie and the Mystery of the Missing Moonstones

Winnie and the Mystery of the Missing Moonstones Winnie and the Mystery of the Missing Moonstones by John S. Comeaux
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When Winnie reluctantly goes on a camping trip with her brother Jerry and her father, she encounters a strange creature in the forest. She and Jerry set off on an adventure.

This book is very well written, and the illustrations are beautiful. The story is entertaining and absorbing, even as an adult. I would have loved this story even more as a child.

The relationship between Winnie and Jerry was a realistic sibling relationship. The squabbling and generally being extremely irritating to one another reminds me of some parts of my own childhood. Winnie’s feelings about having to go on this camping trip very much remind me of how unfair life sometimes seemed at that age.

The trolls are brought to life very well, having their own characters and way of life in Mayfield (their village). The adventure that the two trolls and two children go on is well imagined and believable (within the genre of fantasy). Enough danger to make it exciting, but not too much.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun, light hearted, fantasy adventure, I had so much fun reading it.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
