THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON, by Kelly Barnhill

moon

The story: Stolen from her mother as a baby, Luna is found and raised by a kindly witch, who sees how destructive Luna’s moon magic is becoming and figures out a way to bind it until her 13th birthday. Little does Xan know that this will leave the girl unprotected. Little does she know that there are others who wish to do her harm. With the help of a swamp monster, an extremely tiny dragon, and the mother she doesn’t even know, will Luna be able to tame her own magic and use it to keep everyone safe?

 

Ms. Friend’s opinion: If you like magic, monsters, and a happy ending, this fantasy tale is for you.  Newbery award winner 2016!
