When 12-year old Cece accidentally gets her older sister stolen by El SombrerĆ³n, she decides to fight fire with fire and become a bruja to rescue her sister. She has to learn how to control the souls of creatures and win bruja fights, but something in her rebels against the requisite cruelty. Using compassion and love, Cece befriends and allies herself with an unlikely group of creatures, including the original Coyote, Namer of beings. With their help and her unique magic, she must find a way to defeat her enemies without losing her soul.

We loved how this story wove in Mexican myths, but even more, how Cece repeatedly found just the right and satisfying twist to solve each problem she faced. Her friendship with the criaturas and her relationship with her family was also so well-written. A thoroughly engrossing book that will fly off the shelves.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (2005)

The real world is boring; itā€™s mundane, unimaginative, and dry. So humans create fantasy as a means of escape. We watch movies or go to the theatre to see something more interesting than the standard realities of the everyday. We paint pictures and gaze up at the stars. We play video games and roleplay. We dream. Authors like C.S Lewis and J.K Rowling show us this miserable world; they show us its tones of grey. Then underneath it all, they reveal something spectacular: they reveal fantasy.

The Secret Garden (2011)

The Secret Garden is probably the most amazing and thought-provoking children's book ever written. Such a profound insight into the hearts and minds of the main characters Mary, Colin, Dicken, etc- a little romanticized perhaps but still amazing.

This was such a whimsical and beautiful story. First of all, I recommend you to read this in audiobook format because it includes a bunch of absolutely wonderful musical performancesā€¦ why you ask? because in this fantasy middle grade story itā€™s the musicians that create all sorts of magic when they play.

The Christmas Pig (2021)

The Christmas Pig is a heartwarming, page-turning adventure about one child's love for his most treasured thing, and how far he will go to find it. This story comes from a very good place and you can tell it. The writing is so charming, filling the quieter moments with life. Jack is adorable. I wanted to squish his cheeks just how he squishes his piggy's. It's not all cute, though; silently Rowling deals with mature themes, divorce and estrangement and change and loss biggest of all.
