Towell, Katy. Skary Childrin and the Carousel of Sorrow 265 pgs. Alfred A. Knopf,
2011, $16.99 Content G. The town of Widowbury hasn’t been the same since a twelve day storm was unleashed twelve years ago. The storm rendered the town the
gateway for everything bad and evil. The only thing that would save the down from utter destruction were three of the most unlikely heroes: Adelaide Foss, Maggie
Borland and Beatrice Alfred.
Each girl stood out from the others because of their looks or odd talents. The story line is a bit of a mystery but it drags on and on. Some books take a few chapters to get in to, but this book didn’t get good until the last few chapters.
OPTIONAL, Elem, MS. Shauna, Reading teacher.
