What's Ivy About

Publisher Summary

Ivy’s grandmother is a healer—to mostly four-legged patients of the forest. Although the woodland creatures love her, the residents of Broomsweep grumble about Grandmother’s unkempt garden. When a kingdom-wide contest is announced to proclaim the tidiest town in the land, the people of Broomsweep are determined to win. That is, if they can get Ivy’s grandmother to clean up her ways. Ivy is determined to lend a hand, but the task proves more challenging when a series of unexpected refugees descends on Grandmother’s cottage. Before the week is over, an injured griffin, a dragon with a cold, and a tiny flock of temperamental pixies will cause a most untidy uproar in Broomsweep . . . and brighten Ivy’s days in ways she never could have dreamed.

This book will have you missing your own sweet grandmother! Ivy wants to learn how to be a healer, just like her grandma. Ivy lives with her and learns from her, but the neighbors hate how unkempt her yard is, as they want to be awarded the tidiest town in the kingdom. This story has magical creatures and plenty of fun, and I love that it has great messages of being kind and helping others without being preachy.
