Overview

Jennifer, Hecate, Macbeth, William McKinley, and Me, Elizabeth by E. L. Konigsburg

2017 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the beloved classic Jennifer, Hecatate, Macbeth, William McKinley, and Me, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth is an only child, new in town, and the shortest kid in her class. She’s also pretty lonely, until she meets Jennifer. Jennifer is...well, different. She’s read Macbeth. She never wears jeans or shorts. She never says “please” or “thank you.” And she says she is a witch.

It’s not always easy being friends with a witch, but it’s never boring. At first an apprentice and then a journeyman witch, Elizabeth learns to eat raw eggs and how to cast small spells. And she and Jennifer collaborate on cooking up an ointment that will enable them to fly. That’s when a marvelous toad, Hilary Ezra, enters their lives. And that’s when trouble starts to brew.

A review from my 4th graders: "We really enjoyed this book! Fourth and fifth graders would love it because it's fantasy full of witchcraft and magic. It is also full of mystery. If you like Harry Potter then you'll like this book. The author did a fantastic job of describing characters and giving such great details you felt like you were really there. We would highly recommend this book!"

This Book is an amazing tale. It Tells about a girl witch and her new Best Friend. They don't think they are friends in the beginning, but over time, the charcters blend. I've read this book to many times to count. But the ending never fufils its self. If this book had a sequal, it wouldnt be nearly as great.

This Newberry Medal winner is extremely worthy of this award. This novel would be age appropriate for ages eight to twelve years. This novel would be classified as the contemporary realism genre. This novel is about a story of imagination and a growing of friendships. It is a very moving story about a girl named Elizabeth who moved into an apartment with her family. Elizabeth met Jennifer who thought she was a witch. Elizabeth wanted to be a witch also s she obeyed Jennifer`s every command. Middle school students can relate to this novel in many ways. For instance, in finding new friends, how to make the best of a bad situation, or problem solving. This novel is guaranteed to catch and keep the reader¿s full attention. The author and illustrator of this novel is E. L. Konigsburg. E. L. Konigsburg has written many novel of which some of which are Newberry Honor and Award winners. Konigsburg, E. L.

The book I read was called Jennifer, Hecate, Macbeth, William McKinley, and me, Elizabeth. This book was written by E.L. Koningsburg, you may have read her book called The View from Saturday. Jennifer, Hecate, Macbeth, William McKinley, and me, elizabeth was about a girl named Elizabeth that didn't have any friends. She walked alone everyday to school but one day she saw a girlin a tree on her way to schooland that's where it all started. Then Elizabeth and her new friend, Jennifer, would go everywhere together on the weekends.(they didn't talk at school.) There was something strange about her new friend. The theme int his book was Elizabeth taking the steps to be a witch. the lesson I learned from this book is if you try to be what you want to be you may make it. The setting was mostly at 'thier tree'. I would definitely give this book five stars.

I read this about 2 years ago and I remeber it being very interesting and fun to read about a girl who is a witch and takes a lonely girl up for an apprentice. It's a funny and a cute story. If you're 8-12 years old I would recommend this book. I liked it a lot and maybe I'll read it again some day.
