    One thought on “Enchantress of Crumbledown”

    1. Such a happy throwback to my childhood This book is so rich with imagery that I couldn t help but relive the whole story and the feeling I must have felt 20 years ago when I read this Quick 1 day read that tugs at your heart strings a bit.

    2. All I could think was STRANGER DANGER and I was so relieved when the older brother showed up to echo my thoughts I liked parts of it, but I didn t love this book I think it is supposed to feel like an old fashioned book, but it just didn t win me over.

    3. This book is about three runaway foster children who find a cottage in the woods and an enchantress who teaches them how to use their imaginations and find joy in life At the end of the book, you find out that the enchantress is a mentally insane woman who ran away from the hospital Very weird and it didn t have a point to it.

    4. This book is written for youth, but is delightful to anyone Three children of an abusive foster home run away to a crumble down house and discover someone already lives there At first she seems like a witch, but then she becomes their enchanted friend She teaches about art and poetry and literature and acting while teaching and quoting Emily Dickinsen, Henry David Thorough, Shakespeare, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and others She creates a fantasy world for the children, but really its not fantasy, she [...]

    5. I have loved this book since I first read it and read it often still My full review is on my personal book blog, I hope you find it worth you while Ther is an excerpt below the linkqusitiveowl.weebly revie When three children, Ashley, Brittany, and Theodore, runaway from their neglectful foster parents they take refuge in a little abandoned cabin in the woods, but they aren t alone In the morning they awake to a mysterious older lady named Cassandra Du Marrier who informs them that the cabin is [...]

    6. A quick, fun read that is successful at transporting you into it s world, but not smoothly enough that you are ever unawares of the conveyance Some thoughtful lessons on attitude, experience, imagination, education and looking for the good in people and circumstances Some incautious lessons about safety something which, interestingly, is less concerning the unrealistic a story s premise, but because this is no fantasy, it warrants caution , honesty, and responsibility A well spent couple of hou [...]

    7. This was shared by a friend It was a story about three children that were in foster homes that run away The come upon a cottage that is deep in the forest and in shambles They meed a lady that has come to live their and find happiness than they have ever experienced They learn to love life and Cassie helps them each find and develope their own special talents Where did Cassie come fromRead and find out

    8. Heidi says it s good, I ll try it I liked the book I will admit though, that the enchantress worried me a little bit with her perkyness I really started wondering first off if she had come from a loony bin But, as the children fell in love with her and Crumbledown, I fell in love with them too Cassie has an extrodinary way to teach about art, both the language and visual aspect of it.

    9. I received this for christmas when I was maybe 10 or 11 and was fully prepared to hate it After all, it came from an adult and what could they know about what I would like I was completely taken off guard by how much I loved this book It is enchanting Beautiful story Unfortunately I haven t seen it in years and have no idea where my copy went, but I just remember loving loving loving this book while I was growing up.

    10. What an interesting read I enjoyed this as a child about 11 or 12 years old I just finished reading it again twenty years later with my niece and still enjoyed it I loved how the author put pieces of other stories to help him tell his story It was expanding the minds of the kids in the book It made me pull out my Robert Frost poems and become inspired by the sheer happiness of the enchantress A fun read, but it needs to have a discussion with children that read it.

    11. This was a lovely character study, as I know a woman exactly like Cassie However, it didn t hold up at the end, there was next to zero resolution, and all adults besides Cassie were depicted as rotten or angry or neglectful Nonsense The first half is great, the lessons the kids learn important But I feel it could have been done in a little balanced of a setting.

    12. This children s chapter book is just wonderful Foster children who have run away and seek to reunite their family find an old house to live in An old woman joins them and teaches them how to become creative and resourceful Her spirit of love and adventure inspire the children Eventually the group is discovered and their adventure ends, but understanding has led to a better life for all.

    13. Too bad their is no picture for this one I got this book for my 10th birthday from my grandparents and was enthralled with this book At 10 years old, I would not put it down I remember I would read it once a year It s one of those books that you would consider what you would do stranded in the woods with your brother and sister.

    14. I wasn t in the mood to read this book I don t know why I finished it I feel like not enjoying it makes me a bad person But if I had to spend any time with someone as cheerful as Cassie for very long, I would probably have her committed too.

    15. Really liked this book when I was in Elementary School, came across it the other day and thought i d read it again, I remembered it being a lot better than it actually was, but i m not 8 any either I d recommend it for your kids though.

    16. I received this book as a young adult and still love it today I have read it many times I don t know for sure what draws me to it, but I still enjoy reading and imagining with the characters in the book.

    17. As another reviewer stated, this was also my first favorite book I haven t read it for years but the story captured me as a youth and the magic of it has stayed with me That right there is the power of a great author.

    18. Delightful read I would have enjoyed it as a 12 year old, but still liked it It s funny the things that you think are charming as a child can leave you vaguely disturbed as an adult All I can think of is, what if MY kids read this and thought it would be a good idea to run away

    19. I liked the book however it was not the most exiding book ever however i think that it was well written and fun to fead.

    20. Another book on my shelf that I have never read Enjoying it thus far I absolutely loved this book and recommend it to families This is a book that is great read to your children outloud.

    21. Sweet, touching, tearjerking, but not corny Tough combo to pull off I think this is geared toward teens young adults, but I would read it again.

    22. This book was good, but sad because the whole time I was reading it I knew that it would not end too good I do enjoy the free spiritedness of it though.

    23. Another book I received as a gift from my Grandma Ward This is a really really interesting book that teaches many lessons I would reccomend it.

    24. My 5th grade students really enjoy this book I enjoyed it as well It was a simple read with a touching message I would recommend it to my students and have
