  1. Lazy Primo discovers a gold ring hidden inside a fish He becomes convinced the ring is magic and will save him from the evil witch known as the Manalonga He tries any number of things to prove the ring is magic but his annoying sister and cousins always seem to intervene Then something horrid happens and proves to Primo the ring is magic, or is it You must read Maria Beppina s book to get her side of the story.This is a cute story for early middle grade readers Primo is a little naughty, a lot l [...]


  2. The second title in the Witches of Benevento series focuses on cousin Primo, a bit of a show off The adventure takes place in Triggio, the southernmost portion of their village The witches in this tale are called Manalonga, the scariest witches of all Primo understands how they disguise their voices as a loved one of their victim While hiding under the bridge, they urge innocent children to the edge of the topmost portion of the bridge and pull them off Primo s Uncle Beppe disappeared at exactly [...]


  3. The illustrations caught my eye The girls and I all enjoyed this book based upon Italian folklore out of, like, the 13th century If you won t let your kids read Harry Potter, this book is not for you, as it s chock full of witches with a sprinkling of demons, superstition, and even augury the reading of animal guts Super odd, needless to say, but I enjoyed the dynamic among relatives the screen free, outdoor play of children the way in which the story is told awkward, almost as though it were tr [...]


  4. The Witches of Benevento series is a collaborative work between the writer John Bemelmans Marciano and the illustrator Sophie Blackall First of all it must be said that the illustrations are just gorgeous Blackall is famous for the Ivy and Bean series and last year she won the Caldecott for Finding Winnie Her expressive, classic and mischievous drawings have made her an artistic star in children s lit Marciano s creative weaving of Italian folklore with active village children was totally clever [...]


  5. Whimsical and silly and a teeny bit dark Very Italian Good for kids not quite ready for the Strega Borgias.


  6. Beautiful and clever telling for young people It s a little adventure, a bit on the spooky side, slightly historical, and the graphics are gorgeous I m reminded some of Ottaline.


  7. While I enjoyed the first book in this series immensely, I felt as though this second installment in the series fell short This book was not as intriguing as the first and did not keep my attention I would not mind putting this book down and coming back to it at a later point in time I did not quite understand what the point of the ring was, or what the point of the eel was, or what was going on with Primo in general I am not sure if Primo knew what was going on either it all felt lackluster How [...]


  8. Will a gold ring found inside a fish help the town s children avoid all of the witches This illustrated chapter book is the second in a series about the ancient Italian town of Benevento, and I liked this adventure even than the first I can t wait to see how the illustrations from the other books join together once they are released this will be quite interesting


  9. I thought the whimsical illustrations were charming, and the 1800 Italian setting fun My 4th grade son thought it looked cheezy and my 6th grade son thought it looked too dumb to even thumb through Oh well.


  10. This book was calling to me from the shelf Charming illustrations, a witch infested village, an overall vintage feel sign me up I read this and the first of the series and will continue as they are published They re not mind blowing but definitely enjoyable.
