The Spellbook of Katrina Van Tassel: A Story of Sleepy Hollow - Alyssa Palombo

August 19, 2018

4.5 / 5 Stars 

 

An involved, lively retelling of a classic story.

I do enjoy a good retelling -especially when it's done well. This book takes the classic story of Sleepy Hollow, but focuses in on one of its most regrettably two-dimensional characters; Katrina Van Tassel.

 

 


In this book, she's no longer a mere trophy bride for Ichabod and Brom to war over, she's a feisty woman in her own right. Even the legend of the headless horseman plays second fiddle to her clandestine relationship with Ichabod (shown here to be true love, no mere treasure-hunting from a poorer man), then her marriage to Brom.

It was a fun, engaging read - not least because the characters and landscape were both beautifully brought to life. I enjoyed it!
