The Ickabog

Leave a comment

This was a great book to start off the new year and it was a quick one (thanks, in part, to it apparently now taking me forever to fall asleep at night). At least at this rate I’ll be sure to hit my goal for the year! The Ickabog by J.K. Rowling is not Harry Potter-related but it was a great fairytale that she began writing many years ago, while still writing the Harry Potter books. Apparently she set it aside then dug it back out during the pandemic, and the best part is that she published online to let kids submit illustrations, which are included in the printed book.

It is a heartwarming tale of friendship and of people working together to overcome hardship, but also a cautionary tale of what happens when people lie and let power go their head. I enjoyed the characters and character development and definitely recommend this for adults and children alike. Definitely add it to your reading list and enjoy!
