  • So Mary Stewart, my favorite romantic suspense novelist, tried her hand at children s books once or twice I ran across this one in the library, inexplicably shelved in the adult fantasy SF section, and decided to check it out English siblings John and Margaret ages not specified, but they read as somewhere in the 10 to 13 age range are traveling in Germany with their parents They stop to rest in a forest called Wolfenwald Wolf Wood , where a magical spell which conveniently enables them to speak [...]


  • Buddy read with Jeannette and HannahA cute little tale of fantasy and magic brought to life by Mary Stewart s wonderful prose and gifted story telling In a nutshell, this is a story of two children coming to the aid of a good werewolf I won t say than that as I don t want to give away any of the plot I loved the descriptions of the forest and the sounds of the forest, as well as the cottage and the castle Not that it was really silent If you lay with your eyes shut, and really tried to listen t [...]


  • Although not as transporting as her fare for adults, Mary Stewart still displays her talent for storytelling with this enchanting fairytale I will be keeping this in mind for when I am required as an aunt to do some reading aloud The Little Broomstick is a much better children s book from Stewart.


  • This was another book that I made my mom read to me over and over again as a child until she became sick of it Once I learned to read, this continued to be a favorite It is not actually written for young children and is probably appropriate for youths adults.


  • This is obviously a kid s book but it is Mary Stewart, for Pete s sake So the fairy tale is well done and most intriguing I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it in a heartbeat to a youngster who loves a Narnia like story.


  • Best enchanting children s book I ve read I love time travel and Ms Stewart suspends disbelief with razor sharp skill I felt like I was traveling with John and Margaret Begbie through Wolf Wood I joined them on their journey through time coming to the aid of a weeping man named Mardian, who was cursed by an evil enchanter, Almeric Almeric was desperate to take the throne but he first needed to do away with the king and the king s son He couldn t achieve this without getting Mardian out of the wa [...]


  • A re read from childhood again I had completely forgotten what this book actually was I read it very young, and I remember that I thought very highly of it, but I seem to have merged all of its storyline with several other books, and superimposed a Dianne Wynne Jones story onto my copy of this Very confusing to come back to it and find it s something else altogether It has that excellent lack of setup, and complete suspension of disbelief it s a simple, here we are, and off we go, and there s li [...]


  • This book was milder than we expected and I think written for very young children who are just starting to like werewolves, if that could be called a stage of child development My ten year old found it a bit dull The story is interesting, but not a whole lot happens, and the pattern of word choice appeared to be based upon researched vocabulary lists for elementary level reading, or something It wasn t as bad as, say, any book of the last twenty five years by Disney or Sesame Street, thank heave [...]


  • I picked this up due to the fact that I have always loved Mary Stewart s Merlin Trilogy It really reads as being very dated, I don t see a middle grade reader of this day and age being very accepting of this I was good, a bit stilted at times Rife with those inevitable lines that are not so appropriate for younger readers Something awful had happened to him, whispered John Not just an accident, or getting hurt and anyway there was no sign of that but something really awful Like having a wound, d [...]


  • This review is long overdue, but now I am finally ready to express my excitement with this book I actually started it a while back and then put it down to read other books About a couple of days ago, I went back to reading it and am glad I did The story is riveting and full of surprises The ending it heart wrenching but in a good way The characters are fun and you cheer for their s and Wolf s victory the entire time Now I definitely cannot wait to read other books by Mary Stewart Particularly Th [...]


  • This is a children s book but not just for children as noted on the book cover I decided to read it since I am a fan of Mary Stewart It was a little slow to get into and somewhat predictable as would be expected for a child s book but I did enjoy it I m sure it would be enjoyable for a child.


  • I ve read better children s stories but it s much harder to judge this kind of book once childhood has been left behind I remember being completely entranced by the famous five books as a youngster, but would probably struggle to get through them now.I imagine this would be entertaining for 8 10 year olds.


  • A vacation picnic in the Black Forest of Germany becomes a time travel adventure A werewolf is one of the main characters, but I decided to read this anyway because it s by Mary Stewart and the book is small The first few chapters are pretty dry and the writing doesn t flow but the last few chapters make the reading time worthwhile.


  • My mom used to tell this story while we were working in the garden or canning I loved the story that I read the book when I was about 12 I reread it a few months ago with my husband and I still love it A truly magical tale, great for young readers.


  • My 5th Grade Teacher, Mrs Schultz read this to my class and I couldn t wait for Friday afternoons to hear what would happen next When I told my parents about it and they told me that Mary Stewart had other books, I was in heaven


  • Isn t strange how certain books from childhood haunt you I don t know why but this book made quite an impression on me I don t remember any of the finer plot points, but I do remember exactly how I felt while I was reading it, and the smell of the pages.


  • I read this when I was young and fondly remember it as one of my all time favorites Reading this book was the first time I remember feeling the excitement of wanting to know what happens next so badly that I couldn t put it down I stayed up well past my bedtime to find out.


  • I don t usually read YA books, but seeing Mary Stewart s name drew my attention A quick and easy read and, I thought, a cut above most of the YA fantasy I ve read.


  • I thought it was sweet, enchanting, and simple It accomplished all that was required of it as a children s novel, and I enjoyed it myself Of course, I might be considered a child as well .


  • An engaging fantasy with likeable characters and a fun plot Fast moving and enjoyable Read this to my kids when they were young, and they loved it Read it again recently, and it holds up well.


  • This was the book that started my life long love of reading I was in second grade and my second grade teacher would have us put our heads on our desks, close our eyes and imagine ourselves in a different world I have read this book so many times, I have lost count and now it sits on my shelf waiting for my son to be of an age where I can read it to him Mary Stewart is one of my favorite authors of all time and this particular story is one of my favorites.


  • Charming story for ages 10 15 or so But i think it would appeal to British children who are familiar with the language of medieval times and clothing It might be a little bit challenging for a modern American preteen.I chose it because Mary Stewart has always been one of my favorite authors, and while there is no love interest in this story, it does have her beautiful, romantic language.


  • Only Mary Stewart can set up the atmosphere and feel for a good mystery and magical spells that is about to unfold This is one of her middle grade books This is the kind of story I loved as a youngster and it made me feel like one again The ending was a bit anti climatic though If you love vintage books, give it a try


  • They knew that if you find some person or creature in desperate need of help which you can supply, you have a human duty to supply it, even if it would inconvenience or even hurt you to do so A time travel quest to break an enchantment and stop an evil sorcerer from taking the throne Sign me up I just love old school fantasies like these It s a shame that nobody writes them any because they manage to teach such valuable lessons while still being a lot of fun This book is currently out of print, [...]



  • A well written and timeless story Friendship and family at its heart A must read for all of us who enjoy a good story.



  • TIME WARP INTO MEDIEVAL ENCHANTMENT All Mary Stewart s devoted readers will recognize in this magic tale her gifts as an incomparable storyteller It is a children s story, but not for children only While their parents are sleeping after a picnic in Germany s Black Forest, John and Margaret witness a haunting sight a young man wearing a medieval costume runs past them, weeping The kids are immediately curious and compassionate they follow the trail to a deserted, dilapidated hut, where they feel [...]


  • John and Margaret follow Lord Mardian on a crazy adventure.The genre is fantasy.Overall I thought this book is very good mostly because its fantasy and it involves magic.SPOILER ALERT Dutch Otho s wife gets sick and die s The setting mostly takes place in the woods but it changes throughout the story My book is about two kids who where on a picnic with their parents and they see a strange man that looked weird So they follow him into the woods and he drops a gold medallion Which was a gift from [...]


  • John and Margaret Begbie are picnicking with their parents in the Black Forest when they are mysteriously spirited back through time into the Middle Ages There they meet Mardian, one time servant and closest friend of Duke Otho, ruler of the country He tells them a terrible secret he is under the enchantment of the evil sorcerer Almeric, and is forced to assume a wolf s shape every night Unable to return to the castle, the children are his only hope And so John and Margaret disguise themselves a [...]
