Full of funny Scottish-sounding talk, sheep, ointments, and thieving Queens, this book was an incredibly fun Young Adult read.
"A Hat Full of Sky" was the second book and I was charmed by it. It's not often I can say that I found a second book actually better than the first. Tiffany's growing up a bit and learning that witchcraft really isn't about magik with a "k" (the hocus pocus, boiling cauldron, bells & whistles type) but about how you deal with others less fortunate. How you attend to their needs and their wants, even if they never thank you. How you respect them even if they're poor and ignorant. It was wonderful fun, with a moving message.
