Lists with This Book. Jan 05, Laura rated it it was amazing. There is no book more central to my development as a human being than this one. I can’t possibly review it critically. I also appreciate that the herb references are accurate, but that’s probably because I’m a little nutty.

View all 3 comments. Jan 05, KA rated it it was amazing Monicca Recently re-read this, and found it again to be the rare kind of book that makes me want to work harder and be durlong better person usually only George Macdonald can do that!

And it is a wonderful story from an excellent writer, one whose work mainly dealt with mysticism and the lives of certain Christian mystics. Furlong had a beautiful mind, and I wish she’d written more fiction!

That’s a neat as hell description of a book, and of course, I had to check it out. I feel some major digressions juniiper on Wait, mnoica it just gas? Nah that was my dog. He’s a ventiloquist pooter. He throws his fart stench to make it look like I did it.

Books making monkca a witch! So my Cherokee great-grandmother told my mama that I was a witch when I was a baby. You wouldn’t think people still confronted that Salem shit nowadays or a Spanish inquisition. The Shannon Doherty “Salem bitch trials” was priceless.


No one asked me about Florida cults despite wearing “Ask me about my Florida cult stories” button in another review so I jonica no one will ask me about those stories either ahem okay so these ones happened in Alabama.

I’ll wear a bandana and have ‘Bam flashbacks. Anyway, it was bizarre. My “powers” were really lame stuff like staring at bright lights and then watching junipeg funky colors float over my eyeballs. These days my little niece is a “witch” and has similar lame-o powers.

Kids always think they got everything first. I dug that that wasn’t the dealio at all. It’s like making up these witchery stories on your own like me ignoring Indian folklore stuff frulong skipping straight to the staring at the sun magic.

I loved the deciding for monia message. I nicknamed myself “Mariel the Mean Machine” as a little kid. My grandfather renamed me “Mariel the Mean” and the name stuck.

I’d have loved Wise Child as a kid ’cause she’s fighting all that labeling from most in her life. John Sayles is not Irish and he wrote and directed the film The Secret of Roan Inish about selkies and Irish folklore and it is most awesome movie and if you haven’t seen it, you should. It’s sold in bargain bins pretty much everywhere, like begging to be this little lost gem you find by accident and love to heart. You don’t need to give a fig about selkies at all. It’s just great storytelling.

So teachers who say “write what you know” aren’t always right. You can know stuff by bullshitting and making it your own, anyway. I love that kid feeling of thinking you were the one who got it first. This book is a little too telling too much, almost preachy.

I loved best better than the witchery and really nice husbandry building your own world through hard work and order the feeling of the girl Wise Child coming up in juni;er world and learning through repeated knuckles on bruises Juniper refuses to beat her, though. Should’ve gone to Alabama public schools in the ’80s if she wanted beatings If only that hadn’t been juniler so much through being TOLD these things.

That’s a little too after school special for me, at past thirty.

I wanted it more at ease, other angles, sense of humor view like Terry Prachett. Pratchett’s Tiffany Aching books came later, but boy do they have Wise Child beat on that. Wise Child is the relative from the past that you look at in photographs and appreciate but don’t carry that photograph around in your wallet for day-to-day affirmation I’d totally wear a “What would Tiffany Aching do?


Mariel’s scale of wish-everything-was-that-awesome-fantasy-stories: The Secret of Roan Inish. Beagle’s The Last Unicorn and Tamsin. Juliett Marillier’s Sevenwaters books especially the third one, and that book was probably influenced by Wise Child?

Marillier loves her some Margaret Mahy, that I know. I worship Patricica A. McKillip, some of Dianna Wynne Jones. You know the feeling of reading some really fun and interesting, and everything bad just faded away? Furolng and Harry Potter and Labyrinth.

I’d do nothing else but read and watch movies if only I knew where all the more stuff like this was hiding from me. Roald Dahl’s The Witches was a childhood favorite.

B2 not the vitamin I don’t know. Maybe it’s too soon to tell.

I do like to keep little homey pictures in my mind for warmth, and Juniper is very nice. Anyone remember that internet meme from a few years ago about which musicians made you gay just by listening to them? Morrissey and Elton John didn’t get that. David Bowie made me wish I was a lesbian. If you’re actually reading any of this you might have time to watch these two videos.

The Life of Brian Juniper tree guy! Wise Child is out of print.

I got mine used online. There’s a dedication in the front flap: How come they got to give a gift as an entire family when my cheapo friends in bitched if my twin and I gave joint gifts? They had no problem giving joint gifts. Clearly, I’d have shared Wise Child’s selfish side that wanted to be pampered and given nice things by her bad mama And shout-out to The Bicks!

Jessica didn’t keep your book. Mine came from the Goodwill from some Midwestern state. Our goodwill didn’t have good anything the one time I went. I know a guy obsessed with the goodwill and he actually brags to me about getting “collectible” self-help books from the s.

I should give him Wise Child. Dude, material things don’t matter.
