Margaret and the Moth Tree (Parent Review)

Margaret and the Moth Tree

Margaret and the Moth Tree by Brit Trogen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Immediately, I fell in love with Margaret. I wanted to pick her up and snuggle her and tell her that she is seen and loved.

Margaret and the Moth Tree has a quick-moving plot and distinct characters; and is full of true-to-life insightful observations. The writing style manages to address serious themes, yet still entertain us with fantastical plot twists, such as the appearance of talking moths. It is playful and honest, full of both joy and pain.

I appreciated the themes of courage, perseverance, and hope.

From a parent’s perspective, this is a very clean book. No swearing. No inappropriate content. Just honesty, reality, a splash of imaginative fantasy, and an ending filled with hope.

This book is so lovely, I wish I’d written it!
