Whenever we need to just get away — forget the real world and all it’s troubles — there’s one place we always find ourselves going back to: Havoc Wood. We run eagerly into the arms of the Way sisters (Anna, Charlie, Emz) and their zany friends and family: magical Grandma Hettie, hedgehog-always-in-pocket Wynn, the constant slew of woodsy wanderers… we could go on. There’s nowhere in the world as wonderful and whimsical as Helen Slavin’s Witch Ways, so this week, we’re excited to dive into the third title in the series, Borrowed Moonlight.
