What~the~dickens by Gregory Maguire

October 30, 2008

If you want a lighter story to pair with Life as We Knew it, Maguire’s book is it.  Wicked fans will also want this one.  And I’m sure a few friends of The Wee Free Men will enjoy the skibereen.  But I’m getting ahead of myself.  Maguire takes a storm and a story, three children, Dinah, Zeke, and Rebecca Ruth, one almost adult, Gage; leaves them on their own at night and tells a  wild tale of tooth faires.  The adventures of Pepper and What~the~Dickens as they try to become, “agents of change,”  will delight readers of fantasy, cat books, survival, adventure and orphan stories.  They will all find a home with this one.
