Reviews - What do our customers think?
so-so book  Jan 26, 2003
I stumbled upon this book when searching for other books online. The title caught my eye and I thought it would be a cool book. You rarely ever see childrens books that make reference to the Goddess, so I wanted to get this for my daughter. But after receiving it in the mail, it's really only so-so. It is a very thin book, and with illustrations only on every few pages. The story does not seem written by an experienced author. The language style, and too many uses of words such as "clang clang" and "clinkety-clunk" make it seem sluggish. I realize kids like those kind of words, but this just didn't "flow" or have appeal like most other children's books do.

The story is about a girl who is walking through the crystal forest looking for the Green Goddess, because her mother is sick and dying, and the little girl thinks the Goddess will help her mother. It is a dull story, otherwise. She meets a deer who walks with her. They spend the night with an old tree (all this is rather boring and uneventful). Then they meet the Green Goddess who gives the girl a green crystal heart that opens up to let out green light, and this light gives you perfect health. And the Goddess gives the girl this heart to keep so that she can help people and animals whenever they are in need. And the Goddess tells her she can use it on her mother, and that the heart will give her whatever she asks for.

So, I was not too happy with the theme of the story. Makes it sound like if you ask the Goddess for anything, it will be granted. Which is bound to cause disappointment in children - especially those who have sick loved ones or who are sick themselves. While I believe in the power of prayer and magick, I would never tell a child that they will be granted everything they ask for.

And - the story is dull. Despite its potential. The title itself is probably the most exciting part of the book. It has okay illustrations. But nothing to get too excited about.

It's nice to get this book just to give your child something mentioning the Goddess. But I made goddess magnets with my daughter, and that got her more interested and talking about the Goddess than this book did.

Not a horrible book. But not nearly as good as I was hoping for.
