Witches Garden is a children’s storybook written by Laurel Lorenzini with illustrations by Gabriel San Martin. In a magical land filled with witch doctors, vampires, werewolves, and many more creatures, Mags, a local witch doctor, plans to plant a nursery to restock her medicine. She buys all the necessary goods, plants her crops, and takes all the precautions to protect her garden. Unfortunately, she discovers that someone has been stealing from her garden. Desperate to catch the culprit, Mags casts spells and questions her magical critter-catcher who was tasked to watch over her garden, but this does not yield any results. She enlists the help of a plant whisperer and her sister Florencia, a non-practicing witch doctor who loves reading ancient spell books for fun. Will Mags ever discover the mystery of her missing plants, and will her story have a happy ending? Grab a copy to find out.
Witches Garden is a fun book with elements of a modern fairy tale and unique details that make it memorable. The story is unpredictable and has mystery, suspense, and adventure. Laurel Lorenzini introduces readers to a magical place with familiar creatures, where they trade in wish clams, spells, and charms and have a delivery company. It is all creative, and learning about the residents and their daily troubles was entertaining. Mags is missing her granddaughter Bo, who has traveled for school, and her daughter Miriam, who disappeared. Her being overwhelmed with the work in her store made her a likable and familiar everyday person you might bump into on the street. The book has beautiful art that visually narrates the story and makes the book colorful and eye-catching. Children will be attracted to the colors and love seeing all the amazing characters and enchanted locations. I loved reading this book and recommend adding it to your children’s book collection.
