Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Posie Pixie and the Copper Kettle (Whimsy Wood) by Sarah Hill is a delightful adventure story where young readers find themselves being taken on an adventure along with Posie Pixie in Whimsy Wood. Posie the Pixie is looking for a new house for autumn as summer was slowly ending. As she leans on a tree stump to rest, she reminisces about the summer days which she had spent with Bristle Bumblebee and Dewberry Dragonfly. A caravan passes by and suddenly the horse lifts one of his hooves and the pots and pans fall clanging from the caravan. Posie the Pixie helps the travelers and in return gets a quirky copper kettle. In this story filled with whimsy, magic and enchantment, readers see Posie the Pixie making a lot of new friends while trying to find a cozy autumn home for herself.

The story is beautifully expressed; the pictures are exquisite and capture the enchantment and magic of the tale. The story also teaches kids to interact and converse with others. It is a good book to use for read aloud sessions in classrooms and libraries. The author also conveys a good message of friendship and helping others. All the characters in the story are lovable and charming. They give excellent pace and movement to the events with their adorable behavior. The illustrations complement the whimsical feel of the story beautifully. The author does a great job of conveying a good message with her expert storytelling.
