The Witch's Guide to Cooking with Children (audio)
This was a very cute, fun book. It's an updated reimagining of the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale. Sol is very clever although lacking in confident after a failed science project and Connie is a typical little sister, although not unsympathetic to Sol. They are stuck with their dim father and his new wife in a new home. And when Sol discovers the bone of the neighbor's dog, they follow a path that readers will recognize from the Hansel and Gretel story. I really liked it. It only took a couple of hours to listen to and it was so much fun. I would recommend it to kids or anyone who likes children's book and fairy tales.
