Review

The Secrets of Magnolia Moon

Magnolia Moon is very good at keeping secrets.

She knows just what to do with them, and has a way of talking to the jumpy ones to stop them causing trouble. 

Which is why people are always leaning in and whispering: 

“Can I tell you a secret?”

Edwina Wyatt introduces a character whose irrepressible joy and vivid imagination will remind readers just how much can happen in a year of being nine.

“The Secrets of Magnolia Moon is an absolute delight. I fell in love with this from the first page. It’s a gorgeous mix of all those simple good things: friendship, love, dancing, gardens , baby brothers and the moon. It’s sweet and funny and so beautifully written. For some reason the lovely prose and the wonderful,  joyful Magnolia really reminded me of Lindgren and Pippi Longstocking!” – Karen Foxlee
