The Girl in the Tower

The Girl in the TowerWritten by Lisa Schroeder, Illustrated by Nicoletta Ceccoli

A wicked witch takes over a kingdom. She has power, now she wants beauty. The spell requires the black hair of a girl “who had lived at least eleven years, but no more than twelve” and a feather from a hummingbird. When a black haired baby is born in the castle, the evil witch places the girl and her mother in a tower until she can cast the spell. This is a very basic, simple fairy tale. Young readers will like it, but it may bore older children. The illustrations are wonderful and the pages are beautiful so it may be worth checking this book out for a visual treat.
