Review: Hatched

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While The Grimstones are creepy kooky characters, something has been lost in the translation from marionette puppets to book form. The diary format isn’t entirely successful, especially when a single event happens on two different days, and the voices switches disconcertingly from past to present tense, and is, at one point, omnipresent!
That said, the main character, Martha, is an endearing little goth, who tries her hardest to do her best and fix things – often without any input from her odd collection of relatives. Martha’s heart is in the right place at all times, and come to the fore when her spell-created egg hatches. A sweet story for younger readers.

  1. Dear Miffy,

    I’m writing on behalf of the Australian Women Writers Challenge team and would like to thank you for your participation in the AWW challenge this year. I was also wondering if you’ve seen our feedback survey?

    http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/VLQYMQG

    It’s very quick (10 questions, mostly check boxes, takes 2 minutes), and will provide useful feedback to Bookseller & Publisher.

    Even if you didn’t reach your goal this year, your feedback is valued, and I hope you’ll join us again for AWW Challenge 2013.

    Kind regards,
    Jessica.
