Linnets and Valerians by Elizabeth Goudge ****

Linnets and Valerians is a great book.  It's about an evil witch and four children named Nan, Robert, Timothy, and Betsy.  They meet someone named Ezra who likes bees.  Their Uncle Ambrose teaches them education.  In mistake they go to Emma Cobley's shop and buy some candy.  Ezra is mad because they bought at Emma Cobley's shop.  He says that if they want candy, he will get them candy.  He's mad because Emma Cobley is an evil witch.  They eat some jam with something.  Robert and Timothy climb up in a tree with a dog named Absolom and the evil witch tries to stop them by drawing squares and circles and stuff.  They start to get tired and someone comes to save them.  The people that save them are Uncle Ambrose and Ezra.

I like the book because it is a fun adventure book and I really, really love adventure books.  I like the adventure in this book because it is really fun and there's a lady in this book named Lady Alicia.  Now here's my thing to say:  Absolutely read this book!
