Book Review: Magical Melons

Author: Carol Ryrie Brink
Review by Jordann Tatum, 10 years old
January 13, 2004

Every chapter was a different story about Caddie Woodlawn and her friends and family. There are 14 chapters. Some of the chapters happen before the first book, Caddie Woodlawn, and some of them happened after.

The first chapter is called "Magical Melons" because they found some watermelons in the hayloft and they thought they were magical because watermelon season was over and they were in the hayloft. But actually, they weren't magical because the hired men hid them in there for a surprise. But the three kids, Caddie, Warren, and Tom went in and ate one watermelon a week. They ate six.

This was a good book because it is about a pioneer girl having fun adventures.

NOTE FROM JORDANN'S MOM: This book is now being published as Caddie Woodlawn's Family.
