The BookViral Review:

Another Jimmy Crikey corker from Wallace. E. Briggs, ‘Jade-the Youngest Ever Witch’ takes his readers back into a mysterious society beneath their own, and on into amazing worlds full of other-worldly creatures and strange happenings.

A fantastic introduction into the world of fantasy, the Jimmy Crikey series sees its protagonist overcoming barriers and working with his friends to solve climactic events, not only on the earth but in faraway lands and worlds. In this tale, we are re-introduced to Jade, a very young apprentice, who is eager to become a fully-fledged witch. Though a little impatient, she works hard to pass the tasks she must complete before that day arrives.

Briggs packs his story with cliffhangers, making it impossible to put down and super engaging to the imagination of his young audience. This book in particular is structurally strong, with all paths leading to resolution and a surprising culmination of Jade’s journey. Briggs teaches self-belief, cooperation and peaceful negotiation as our hero and heroine work tirelessly to keep the universe safe.

With plenty of scientific facts for young minds, Briggs cleverly uses the plot to imbed some complicated concepts, which engender a curiosity about how the world and its elements function. He writes with both genders in mind, with action-packed exciting scenes giving way to softer moments, such as the arrival of a new addition, baby Helios.

With all the great elements of a traditional fairy tale brought into the 21st Century, this tale offers both fantasy and realism, setting youthful minds alight while keeping their feet firmly planted on the terra firma of responsible human behaviour, empathy and respect for others.

A great story for fledgling readers, and a lovely addition to the collection, ‘Jade-The youngest ever Witch’ is unreservedly recommended.

Life and Death – living forever.

We are constantly and enduringly fascinated with fictional accounts of parallel existence, alternative realities and genetic engineering. Films such as ‘The Fountain’ present immortality as attainable, whilst books such as ‘The Book Thief’ (Markus Zusak) explore the nature of death, in this case by death himself acting as narrator.
