J Bean Palmer’s “ElsBeth and the Pirate’s Treasure” revolves around ElsBeth, a second grader who happens to be a witch with A LOT of promise. She is the granddaughter of Hannah Prudence Godspell, a very well-respected witch. ElsBeth learns to adjust and adapt to everyday life: the second grade (WE ALL HAVE BEEN THERE: GUARANTEED). A dream in particular that young ElsBeth had will begin to shape Elsbeth’s life, giving birt

This children’s book was a cute, short read. True to the book’s blurb, Elsbeth and the Pirate’s Treasure is about a little girl named Elsbeth who is in second grade and happens to be a witch, and becomes embroiled in a search for pirate’s treasure gone awry. Evenly-paced and written for a young reader, this story is nonetheless delivered with maturity and great respect for the subject, characters and plot.
Elsbeth is precocious and well liked by her peers, a born leader when the thick of the act
The cover (and all the artwork within the book) are so beautiful, and a great addition to the book. The writing was also very cute, although slightly repetitive, although that is to be expected from a Middle Grade book. The plot is very cute and overall a quick read.

This is a great addition to any child's library. But it is fun enough for the adult to read along too. I read this book along with my son, we each read it alone and then discussed it. I found it enjoyable and kept my attention. My son enjoyed book 1 enough to immediately start book 2.

If you have a reluctant reader this book may be just the ticket to spark a love of reading.
The story of the Cape Cod witch is both well written and holds the reader's attention all throughout the entire adventure. The numerous illustrations in the book are charming and add to the good quality of the story.
