Having trouble finding the perfect book for the young child on your holiday list? Look no further! Hildie Bitterpickles Needs Her Sleep, is a sweet story that will leave little ones begging to have it read over and over again. Written by Robin Newman and Illustrated by Chris Ewald, the story will take your imagination to far away lands and leave images dancing in your mind.
Hildie Bitterpickles is a young witch who likes things done her way. In this fun story, young readers will learn how to handle situations when things don’t go their way, and how to implement problem solving skills in their lives.
Newman has written a beautiful character in Hildie Bitterpickles, and pulls in characters from fairytale favorites. Newman’s ability to bring new imagination and life to older characters is a great feat that she accomplished in a way that seems like it’s her second nature.
The illustrations done by Chris Ewald are some of the most beautiful I’ve seen. His pictures portray an innocence that is forgotten with age, and to open this book and see them, brings about a sense of nostalgia you won’t want to lose.
I took this book to my church and shared it with some of our pre-school and kindergarten aged kids and they LOVED it. Everyone wanted their own copy 🙂
