Any Which Wall has received its first REVIEW, and the review is GOOD. But it’s not from Kirkus, or PW, or SLJ, or Horn Book, or any of the usual suspects…
It’s from Jade Newton, a kid in Vermont, who says:
Although this book’s theme is magic, there is a sense of reality to it. The characters are normal kids with normal lives, and even Merlin is portrayed as the person he most likely was rather than a storybook version of someone whose powers are “supernatural.” This helps us to believe that the “impossible” might be more possible, than we may think.
This is exactly how I want the book to be read, and it means even more coming from an actual human kid-person, an actual reader. Yay, JADE!Â Thank you!
