Book Review

It was a nice read at bedtime and I would recommend it to my friends

This book was about Kwame’s magical journey. He got magic from the tree and became powerful. There was a baby Fifi who turned into an evil monster.

I liked the book, it is different and doesn’t have a happily-ever-after ending.

Baby Fifi was really cute, my favourite part was when he ate from a flying ladle because she jumped into it.

It was a nice read at bedtime and I would recommend it to my friends.
