“Knowledge is power, but it is a terrible power when it is hoarded and hidden.” They say every forest has a witch, did they say the witch had to be evil? The Girl Who Drank The Moon is a story that allows the reader to picture images of the mystical dark forest and the moonlight.When the problem comes it makes you keep on reading and reading page after page, you won’t want to stop.
In this story, the villagers believed that leaving a child in the forest for the witch to take away, will prevent her from coming and terrorizing the village. The witch was never seen by the villagers, the villagers made sure of that. They were basically sacrificing their children to keep the witch away. You would think that the witch is evil for taking their babies, but that is not what she did, in fact the witch was a kind and generous girl named Xan. She shares her home with a Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan sees the babies, take care of them, and give them to the families that belong at the other side of the forest. But one day she accidentally fed a baby moonlight instead of starlight witch gave her extraordinary magic. Xan decided to give the baby a name, “Luna.” Xan locks her magic deep inside her. In her thirteenth birthday, her magic emerges on schedule, but Xan is far away. A man from the village wants to protect his people from the witch by killing her.Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her.
I think that the storyline is interesting and the story is original, I have never read anything similar to this story. The title of this story itself will easily catch people’s attention and interest, like how do you even drink the moon? It also lets people know that you should not assume how some people are like without knowing them, just like how the villagers feared the witch when they don’t even know how she’s really like.
This book is suitable to any age of the reader. Especially somewhere in the middle of fifth or sixth grade. It’s great for people who like fantasy and imagination, they would really enjoy reading this book because it contains events, scenes, and creatures that you won’t be able to see in anywhere in real life.
