    1. An exciting magical adventure that s beautifully written and very touching I loved Mup as a main character, and the world of the raggedy witches is gorgeously described A wonderful book 10 Please note this review is meant as a recommendation only Please do not use it in any marketing material, online or in print, without asking permission from me first Thank you


    2. A brilliant, atmospheric, evocative and pacy read Mup was a beautiful character, brave and vulnerable and clever, and Crow broke my heart I found the Raggedy Witches truly chilling, and the folklore magic touches of Irish language were very pleasing I have loved all of Celine Kiernan s work for older readers so it s no surprise I enjoyed every word of this I can t wait for the sequels.


    3. This is going to be a hard one to beat as my favourite book of the year, and it s not even officially released yet It has the feel of a classic childrens book, with the evil queen and the hero s quest and will sit well with others such as The Snow Queen, but is also part of a wonderful trend of excellent fantasy books for that 8 12 age range.The action begins from the moment you open the book with Mup noticing the raggedy witches following them in the trees as they are returning from the hospita [...]

    6. I often than not hear people say that to make a strong Middle Grade character you need to take the parents out of the picture because we have the wrong notion that to take care of a child is to boss them around and take away their freedom.Begone The Raggedy Witches defies all these stereotypes and with Mup, an awesome little girl, in the quest to rescue her dad with her Mam, her Aunty, little brother Tipper and Badger, the family s dog They leave our world to brave through the bright and scary [...]



    7.
