Five Sisters by Stephanie Campisi & Mădălina Andronic (illustrator)



The woods had grown up around them thoughtful and wise, but the family they desperately wanted had not.

A husband and wife couple spent their entire lives caring for their forest.

They desperately wished for a child but nothing they did make a difference.

One night, the husband – desperate – made a plea to the forest.

And he was granted a magic branch, from which he carved five beautiful, loving wooden girls.

Each one had her own personality and quirks, giving him and his wife a new life.

Overall, I thought this one was extremely cute. I loved the way the Russian nesting dolls were incorporated into this story.

And the husband and wife couple were so incredibly cute – the author conveyed so much emotion in so few words.

And the illustrations! I absolutely loved the illustrations. The coloring was gorgeous and the detail was fantastic. Truly a wonderful story!

With many thanks to Familius and June Smalls for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review
