The Witch of Blackbird Pond is a very good book. It takes place in the 1500s. There’s a girl whose father is leaving on a ship. She was sad so she went to the pond and she found the witch’s house. Then she walked into the witch’s house.
Kate lives in a shack but she still feels like she’s in a mansion. This part reminds me of when I went to Fiji and met a family that lived in a hut. The mom said that she loved the house anyway. It showed me that it doesn’t matter if you live in a dumpster, as long as you have friends and family.
This book taught me to be adventurous and not to be lazy. If you are lazy you will not find amazing stuff like castles and witches. If you are adventurous you would find dungeons and abandoned mine shafts and you would discover islands. You would even discover Death’s Castle and then find a jewel that makes you live to be a thousand years old.
