The Witch's Curse by Keith McGowan - ADVISABLE

McGowan, Keith The Witch's Curse, 296, pgs.  Henry Holt, 2013. $16.99.  Language: G, Mature Content: G, Violence: PG; 

Brother and sister, Sol and Connie are running for their lives after escaping from the witch next door.  The trouble begins when their travels lead them straight into the cursed woods of another wicked witch. 

The companion tale to The Witch's guide to cooking with children, is a smart novel full of fantasy and action.  It's not necessary to read the first book in order to follow the storyline and become invested in the characters.  Each sibling finds their talents and strengths in order to escape a cursed hunter and find their way to safety before times runs out.
