Tales by Moons-light: Stories From Before the Great Melt
This is a collection of seven stories based on a world called Urth before the Great Melt, which was when the polar ice caps melted and flooded the entire planet, except for mountain tops and tall mesas.
The first story is about a witch who kidnaps children named Margie and Hal so they can work for her in her castle. Inside the castle lives a nerva (the word raven, scrambled), a bird-like animal, who asks riddles. If the children can answer three riddles correctly, then all captives at the castle would be freed. This story has a very unexpected ending, but I won’t ruin it for you!
In another story, a boy named Bai must save his village from the overpopulation of wocs and gips (cows and pigs) which reside in The Land for All.
These tales spin magic and science together. It is the job of the reader to unscramble the clues! I enjoyed this book because it is easy to read, entertaining, and unique. I would recommend this book to other young readers who enjoy captivating tales that take you to another world!
