Forest Of The Witches
“Forest Of The Witches” is A Fantasy Adventure 30 Years in the Making
Updated information in this review.
ProLifeCorner- Annarae – It might seem strange to see a review of a book titled “Forest of the Witches” presented on the Pro Life Corner, but this is a delightful and adventurous book that will appeal to early teens and adults alike. With witches in the title you might think it’s another typical adventure geared toward kids and having an occult theme. Not So!!
The tale begins with 11 year old Patrick at the bedside of his dying grandfather. Grandfather gives Patrick a bag of magic jelly beans so he will be able to go through the Forest of the Witches to the Valley of the Leprechauns in search of the pot of gold. When Grandfather passes away, young Patrick embarks on the most dangerous adventure of his young life. On his journey, he encounters many evil characters, wild animals, and many more tribulations. But Patrick doesn’t travel alone. Along the way he discovers he has his own guardian angel to assist him. Together they battle many evil forces and the magic jelly beans come in handy in surprising ways. Each page seems to get more exciting and sometimes scary, but it’s hard to put the book down. You just want to find out what happens next.
The story shows the triumph of good over evil and will delight readers both young and old.
John P. Shippert, the author of “Forest of the Witches”, told stories to his children (he has 10) and their friends as they were growing up. Years later they still recall those adventures. I can only hope that this is the first of many “Never-ending Tales”. I look forward to the next one.
As a plus Mr. Shippert illustrated all the pictures in the book, a skill he mastered as an art teacher in the public school system where he taught for over 30 years.
