    1. I received this book for free through First Reads.This book was an absolute delight If I were to compare it to a dessert it would be poached pears, very light and just enough sugar to curb the sweet tooth.As I said in my status update, this book was written to be read aloud The structure made me feel like I was a kid listening to my 2nd grade teacher reading to my class you know the one who was really good at theatrical pauses and emphasis as she swept her free hand out engaging the young minds [...]

A Delightful read It is about a young Hapenny who discovers that some things are not as they seem while she finds her place in the world The story is full of familiar magical beings such as wizards, trolls, hapennys, and even a giant The storyline is inspiring, but will also bring some laughts The story is geared toward elementary aged children, but teens can enjoy it too Altogether this book is a great read.

    8. I was lucky enough to win this book on First Reads The author even wrote a sweet message in it for me, thank you, Jennifer I took advantage of a lazy afternoon over the weekend to curl up and enjoy this book I adored all the artwork and found it to be a charming, sweet story Like many other reviewers have mentioned, it reminded me of reading a story with my mother and that just endears it even to me I have already sent it to my 10 year old niece to enjoy with my sister.

    9. I found this book to be equally pleasing to young and adult alike It does have some changing of figures to ash which may upset the really young But I found it a pleasant change from the adult genre that is typically read I enjoyed the illustrations finding them to be close to the story line Overall, I found it a pleasant change.

    10. I got this cute book for only 2.99 on Kindle Sallie and I are only on chapter three, but we are loving the story and the pictures Check out what else I ve been reading this week on my blog bookdivabooks

    11. Reviewed for Readers Favorite at ReadersFavorite.Now and again, one of those stories for children who are relatively new readers seeking a chapter book comes along that is truly worthy of attention Hapenny Magick, by Jennifer Carson, is just such a story From the lovely cover art and internal pictures, to the storyline itself, this journey is sure to please young readers In it, we meet Mae, a hapenny, or little person Mae s mother, now missing, left Mae with only an old magic flute and a pendant [...]

    12. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Well, maybe it was a bad idea to read this Middle grade fantasy has proven to not be my thing, unless it s the Chronicles of Narnia, in which case I read it again and again But the cover It s just so cute I couldn t resist The bad thing about Hapenny Magick is basically the bad thing, for me, about almost all other MG fantasies It s just too sweet and black and white for my liking, and the whole plot always s [...]

    13. I enjoyed this enchanting tale immensely HAPENNY MAGICK follows Maewyn Bridgepost, the smallest Hapenny of them all, who discovers she can wield magic She soon finds herself in the company of a pair of wizards and on an adventure of a lifetime.Just like the fairy tales of old, HAPENNY MAGICK doesn t glance over the darker elements in the story The author strikes just the right balance between whimsy and villainy as the tale unfolds, which kept me hooked The illustrations are lovely too and they [...]

    14. What a cute story I wish I was an 8 year old girl again, or 10 year old, heck, any age Follow Maewyn on her magical adventure as she learns the terrible secret behind her mean guardian, as she strikes out on her own to learn magick with the help of two wizards and how to protect the villagers she loves And hapennies are small, trolls are big, so Mae has quite the challenge to overcome She learns about friendship and family and sacrifice.Beautifully written, wonderful to read aloud or curl up in [...]

    15. Super adorable fantasy book with a cute and likable, young female heroine Although the story was a bit predictable for a well read adult or even a well read youngster , this would make a great introduction to the genre for the young reader Brings to mind fare such as The Hobbit, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe Well written and easy to read, and has some delightful illustrations I loved this book from start to finish So glad I asked for this for Christmas Now, [...]

    16. I loved this story The illustrations are wonderful.Maewyn may be the smallest of the small, but she has so much heart and determination on her side When she learns the terrible secret to her brutally mean guardian, and finds out that she has magick she finds two wizards to teach her how to use it to protect the villagers she loves Through all of her travails, Maewyn learns about friendship and family and sacrifice.Beautifully written If you enjoy fairytales, then you ll enjoy Hapenny Magick

    17. A little like The Hobbit, a little like The Gammage Cup by Carol Kendall, with a liberal dash of Cinderella mixed in Sweet though perhaps a little too sweet Lovely delicate illustrations I gather it is self published and it would have benefited from a professional editor, especially in the dialogue Still, enjoyable escapist reading.

    18. I received this book free from a giveaway.This book was a great for a light read The illustrations are beautiful and great for children.

    19. Boy what a cute book Wish my greatgrandchildren were closer I would read the bookto them All about hapennies, trolls wizards,etc Really enjoyed the book.
