review Drizzle By Kathleen Van Cleve

Drizzle By Kathleen Van CleveFinally a Crown of Cinder (Wings of Fury, heroine I can identify with She s afraid of bugs and afraid of the dark And she believes in magic Real magic not the kind where you take a uarter from behind someone s ear She talks to plants and they talk back She lives on a rhubarb farm but not just any ordinary rhubarb farm They grow chocolate rhubarb a vegetable that tastes better than a Snickers bar But the farm is in trouble You see every Monday except one for 86 years itas rained at 1 pm on Monday The one Monday it didn t rain was when Polly s older brother Freddy was born And now the rain How to Draft Basic Patterns has stopped The plants are dying and Freddy is really sick It is up to Polly to figure outow to save Crafting Novels Short Stories her family s farm ander brother s life In Drizzle narrator Polly Peabody lives on a magical rhubarb farm where it rains every Monday at 1 PM exactly The rest of the area is in the dry Midwest but the Peabodys always The Road from Damascus have rain Until one day they don tAnd that s just the beginning of their problemsWithout the rain the rhubarb begins to die Polly s brother Freddy gets ill And now Aunt Edith wants to sell the farm If the rain does not return then the Peabodys might notave a choicePolly is determined to save the farm but is there anything an 11 year old girl can doThis book is perfect for the people who loved Savvy and A Seat At The Table: A Novel of Forbidden Choices have been looking for something similar Itas the same kind of feel to the book and style of writing Both books ave a magical component to them although the magic is not as prominent in this book as it is in Savvy Also in both books the main character really as to discover who she truly is and not rely on Hunted Wolf (Seraphine Thomas, her preconceived notions oferselfHowever Drizzle is certainly it s own novel The magic and plot and setting of the novel are distinctive and creative I like the world that Van Cleve creates for Polly to live in And despite Polly s constant tears and assertions that she s a coward she actually is a strong female character that I think girls can identify withA good individual read for ages 8 up We The Jewish People: 2Their History and Their Religion here at BookPeople would recommend this as a good bedtime book for parents to read a loud to their kids aged 7 12 The book is broken up into many small sections that are the perfect size for before bed reading Polly Peabody knows thater family s rhubarb farm is something special even something magical They grow Giant Rhubarb that is Wilhelm Van Gloeden helping close theole in the ozone and chocolate rhubarb that tastes like a sweet but is a vegetable They Samotny rejs OPTY have a lake that you can t drown in no matterow long you old your breath a castle to live in and gems sprout from the ground And every Monday at 100 pm exactly it rains But then one Monday it doesn t And other things start to go wrong on the farm The rhubarb begins to wilt even though it is being watered by and The umbrella ride fails when people are riding it A strange fog is starting to cover some of the farm It is up to Polly to find out what is causing the damage and save their farm To do that she will Omega Beloved -
