Denise Doyen Author of The Pomegranate Witch
Join us at Laurel Book Store for Halloween reading for young'uns with Denise Doyen and her new, exciting book The Pomegranate Witch!
When a scary old tree blooms with the most beautiful pomegranates ever seen, the neighborhood kids' mouths water with anticipation. But the tree isn't theirs—and it has a protector!
So begins the Pomegranate War, a fun, rollicking, rhyming tale of a battle between the sly, plucky rascals and their wry, witchy neighbor who may have more than one trick up her sleeve.
This delectable romp from award-winning children's poet Denise Doyen and acclaimed illustrator Eliza Wheeler honors classic children's literature and revels in nostalgia for free-to-roam days full of playful invention.
