Reviews from Anita's Readers

From children that have read Anita’s: ‘The Magic of an Irish' Series of Books.

From: Paraic Cagrey Third Class, Dun Boyne Senior Primary School, Dun Boyne, Co. Meath

'In my opnion, these series of books by Anita Hendy are much more exciting and better than J.K Rowling's series of Harry Potter. And when 'The Irish of a Magic Canal' comes out at Christmas, I am going to get it from Santa. The tories are just so magical, breathtaking 10/10 it is a brilliant series of books.'

Dear Miss Hendy,
Your story about the Magic of an Irish Castle: I liked the story... I didn’t notice that you used to live in that castle. I only noticed when you showed us the picture of you and your dad. I would love to live in a real castle.

Miss Hendy,
Thank you very much for coming in. I really liked the book. My favourite was when the Queen was exploring.

Dear Miss Hendy,
I really enjoyed your book ‘The Magic of an Irish Castle’. It was very interesting book to read. It was very good but very sad when the Queen died. I thought it had a lovely ending. It must have been cool to live in a Castle, I do hope you write more books.
From Zoe Fallon aged 9.

Thank you for the book. It was very very good because I liked the pictures and the sounds of it and I really like you.

Dear Miss Hendy,
I loved your book, ‘The Magic of an Irish Castle’. I liked it very much.... My favourite part was when Prince Uisce got up the ladder to his Dad. I didn’t know that that part was about Jesus so it was cool when you told me that.
Love Yasmin Sodeau.
