The Wand that Rocks the Cradle: Magical Stories of Family by Oren Litwin

This is an anthology of tales that are full of magic.  A dead teacher for the first grade class?  A coffee shop that relaxes you too much?  Or how about a reality tv show about witches?

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

The stories contained are:

“Bellwethers Know Best,” by Marion Deeds
“Legacy,” by Joanna Michal Hoyt
“Coffee Break,” by W.O. Hemsath
“She That Was So Proud and Wild,” by Misha Burnett
“Dead in First Grade,” by P.L. Sundeson
“The Dragon Detector,” by Elana Gomel
“The Lake Cottage, by Michelle F Goddard
“To Find a Peach,” by Frank Saverio


I think my favorite is "The Lake Cottage".  There's something living in the lake but it's his friend.  And that's a good thing.

"To Find a Peach" is about an endangered kingdom and that one touched me, too.  "The Dragon Detector" is sad but it'll stick with me for a while.

Which one is your favorite?
