Pumpkintown Perils Volume 3: Journey into Jagged Wood by Aubrey Law
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really enjoy this series! It is a guaranteed laugh out loud read. Witch Wanda, her cat Jinxy and her sisters, Alice and Amber are back. They have teamed up with Leprechaun Sam and the gnomes to find a giant and a werewolf, one of whom is their father, (is this a good or bad thing? Is everyone on the same side?). As always when this crazy cast of characters get together there are outlandishly zany things happening, along with some dangerous, possibly deadly, things. Readers of this book, (series), should expect anything to pop up. The stories remind me of Lewis Carroll. You open the book and are instantly transported to a fantasy land where you are kept off balanced and are rarely certain who is really on your side. You may not survive but you will definitely enjoy the ride.
If you are looking for manic craziness and a fast read this book is probably a good fit for you. It does contain sexual references and adult language, for those who want that information. Things do wrap up nicely but with the opening for further adventures, (thank you!), to look forward to.
*I normally would have finished this book in a day, or at most over a weekend. However, I had some medical issues going on then Harvey hit. With family in Houston my concern and attention was focused there. Happily my family is fine, including Baby Jax who was born during the worst of the flooding. I ended up stopping and starting several times then just re-reading it. I would like to thank the author who provided an ecopy of this book for review purposes.*
