"An epic fantasy about a young girl raised by a witch, a swamp monster, and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, who must unlock the powerful magic buried deep inside her. Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this enmagicked girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. To keep young Luna safe from her own unwieldy power, Xan locks her magic deep inside her. When Luna approaches her thirteenth birthday, her magic begins to emerge on schedule--but Xan is far away. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her--even if it means the end of the loving, safe world she's always known. The acclaimed author of The Witch's Boy has created another epic coming-of-age fairy tale destined to become a modern classic"--… (més)

This is the most gorgeous, wonderful book! I read it to my son, and we were both absolutely mesmerized. My husband read it to my daughter, and they were blown away. This is Literature, with all the wonders that capital L bestows, but still accessible, intriguing, and entertaining to the children that are the target audience. It is so well-crafted and functions on multiple levels. We had so many great conversations during and after reading this book. Highly recommend! ( )

For a Newbery award book, this somewhat mythopoeic plot was very strange (and in my estimation, not well-directed at the children's genre). Luna and Antain could have been much more engaging characters, but their coming-of-age was a painfully-hindered process. Overall, the novel's concept was intriguing, but the story drags on too much, and concentrates on some extremely negative aspects (abandoning babies, lying adults, Luna's destiny tied to the dying Xan, and her mother's imprisonment).

There are interludes of conversation in italics that confuse the narrative and don't contribute to moving the story forward. The effect of this narrator's intervention is unlikely to interest a middle-grade reader, probably invoking a 'huh?' moment. The on and off aspect of Luna's magical abilities was distracting to the story arc and it was never clear why Xan, the surrogate Grandmother, didn't find ways to teach Luna straightaway. Not a book I'd give to a sensitive reader especially as there are better-crafted mythical tales to be read. ( )

This is the story about a girl named Luna who is being raised by a Witch after she accidentally received magical powers. Luna is unaware of her powers until she turns 13 years old. Luna has to learn to control her powers until it is too late. The story is set in a magical land and it includes characters such as the Witch, a tiny dragon and a bog monster. All these characters raise Luna. One of the other characters in Protectorate is trying to kill the Witch because he believe she is the reason they sacrifice a baby each year. This is not the case and eventually Luna helps exposes this truth. This book was a good read and it was entertaining and captivating. ( )

Set in a deep, dark forest bordering a sorrowful city, The Girl Who Drank the Moon tells the story of Luna, a girl left as sacrifice to an “evil” witch who turns out not to no be so evil after all. She does, however, accidentally feed Luna moonlight and fill her with enormous magical power. To protect Luna from this unpredictable magic, the witch locks it deep inside - where it is to remain hidden until her 13th birthday. The Girl Who Drank the Moon is a fantastical coming of age story. It just happens to also include bog monsters and tiny talking dragons.

This is a great book for middle-grade fantasy readers! ( )

My 14 yr old daughter asked me to read this with her so I did. Finished it in 3 days. Its a really good book, i do recommend it.

Books are magic and so is a mothers love for her daughters. Always and forever! ( )

There was a time when her feet fit neatly on the curve of the earth ... (p. 127-128)
"'Patience has no wing,'" Glerk recited as she walked. / Patience does not run / Nor blow, nor skitter, nor falter. / Patience is the swell of the ocean; / Patience is the sigh of the mountain; / Patience is the shirr of the Bog; / Patience is the chorus of stars, / Infinitely singing.'" (p. 135-136)
Xan closed her eyes and pressed her feet to the ground and felt the magic flow through her fragile bones. She felt herself become light and small and keen. Bright eyes, agile toes, a sharp, sharp mouth. She shook her wings, felt so deep within herself the need to fly she thought she might die of it, and with a high, sad cry of loneliness and missing Luna, she fluttered into the air and slid over the fringe of trees. (p. 226)
... Glerk, who felt that violence, while sometimes necessary, was uncouth and uncivilized. Reason, beauty, poetry, and excellent conversation were his preferred tools for settling disputes. Glerk's spirit, in its essence, was as serene as a bog - life-giving and life-sustaining. (p. 357)
Once upon a time, the Witch received a poem from the Beast of the Bog. Perhaps it was the poem that made the world. Perhaps it was the poem that will end it. Perhaps it is something else entirely. All I know is that the Witch keeps it safe in a locket under her cloak. She belongs to us, but one day her magic will fade and she will wander back into the Bog and we won't have a witch anymore. Only stories. Perhaps she will find the Beast. Or become the Beast. Or become the Bog. Or become a Poem. Or become the world. They are all the same thing, you know.
