Who wouldn't want to read this book? I mean, if you like Harry Potter, you like Grizelda.

I enjoyed this book. It was fun, well paced, and I'd recommend it to friends. The formatting made it difficult to read at times, because the narrator would change without any break in the text. Also, it seemed to end a bit abruptly. Maybe another story is coming out later? It just didn't feel finished.

Though it did end rather abruptly, Grizelda is an enjoyable, imaginative tale. It's quite nice to read a story in which the female protagonist finds her own courage and empowerment simply because she's maturing and learning, not because she's drooling over some handsome, brooding forbidden fruit. I consider this book appropriate for most children over 8 or so.

I really enjoyed this book, but it ended unfinished. It is a nice story for all ages and would make a cute movie.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It took me places I could never have imagined! "Ratriders, goblins" and Grizelda all combined to want the book to not end. I hope the author will write more adventures of Grizelda and her new friends!

It's good and bad. When I say that I mean when I started I liked it enough to keep reading and some parts of the book I just didn't like. Over all I loved the book and I read a lot of books. I read over 50 books in school last school year and more at home. I'm nine almost ten years old.

I mean to be honest. I read this book and honestly, I'm not that all satisfied. It's not bad or even ok for that matter. It's a little in between if you subtract the curse words. I am so totally being absolutely honest with you. -$HRF

Can't understand how someone can say they don't like books about witchcraft and wizards, and then post a review saying so and giving one star. Did they read the book and found that out? It's in the description that she was accused of witchcraft. If you don't like those kinds of books, don't read them, and don't give a one star review, which only hurts the author. There are those of us who like these kinds of books. Since it ended abruptly, maybe the author will write another one if she gets positive reviews (or maybe she already is).
