Review: Tilly's Moonlight Garden
Tilly's Moonlight Garden by Julia Green
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Tilly's Moonlight Garden by Julia Green is a sweet story of a little girl who has to cope with moving to a new home while at the same time, her mother is going through a difficult pregnancy. Tilly spends much of her time exploring their home, which is old and has a lot to discover. She also plays outside and discovers the garden where she meets a couple of special friends.
The book is told through the eyes of Tilly, so all of the adult problems are only explored at her level. She is a also a girl who has to go through an experience that many have as children--moving into a new area and trying to make new friends with the kids at school. The way Tilly copes with that is to use her imagination to put around her the things that she loves. The book crosses between imagination and a little bit of childhood magic, which makes the story entertaining to children and adults alike.
