Description



About the Book



Told in rhyming text, a gang of neighborhood children make a determined effort to seize some of the pomegranate fruits from the magnificent tree by the scary, run-down farmhouse--but the tree is guarded by a scary "witch," except on Halloween, when her "sister" welcomes trick-or-treaters.



Book Synopsis



When a scary old tree blooms with the most beautiful pomegranates ever seen, the neighborhood kids' mouths water with anticipation. But the tree isn't theirs--and it has a protector! So begins the Pomegranate War, a fun, rollicking, rhyming tale of a battle between the sly, plucky young rascals and their wry, witchy neighbor who may have more than one trick up her sleeve. This delectable romp from award-winning children's poet Denise Doyen and acclaimed illustrator Eliza Wheeler honors classic children's literature and revels in nostalgia for free-to-roam days full of playful invention.

grandma deb - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
Fun story about the Pomegranate witch at the edge of town, or is she? I ordered 2 of these for gifts but one of them has 2 tears on the same page. Not happy about that when buying a new book at over 15 dollars each. However it would cost too much to send back and these seem to be out of stock regularly so I will just have to keep it but doubt I will give it as a gift.
