A Tale of Witchwood Park by S.W. Develin

Emily didn't return to school, and Kendra is heartbroken.  She was her only real friend.  Now Kendra waits alone after school until her mother comes to pick her up.  Only a troll comes out of the forbidden woods one day before she arrives.  He asks Kendra (the shy one), Jimmy (the bully) and Daniel (the outcast) to come on a magical quest to overcome an evil queen who has killed the forests and towns that once existed.  He says no one will notice they are gone and they'll return home soon. 

Author Buzz and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

Since they will be going in the forbidden woods, Kendra says yes.  Maybe she can find Emily.  Jimmy says yes because anything is better than going home.  Daniel goes along because he was invited and nobody invites him to do anything.

The rest of this trip is magical and haunting.  There's action all the way through.  It's a fairly short read and I can see young readers enjoying this book.  I'm no kid and I enjoyed it.  How could you not when Daniel turns into a dragon when they need him to be one?

This is an exciting read that will hold a child's attention.  If they like fantasy, they will love this book.
