Review of Three Twigs for the Campfire by Joseph Cognard
A delightful interwoven story collection, “Three Twigs for the Campfire” is a collaborative family effort by the author and his daughters, who provided the lovely and well-done art renderings. Three children, Jack, Chelsea, and Billy, spend one night a month in the back yard “camping out.” Well, high schooler Jack and newly teenage Chelsea have done so for some years, but this is younger brother Billy’s first try-and Billy is just-a-little-skittish. He’s worried the campfire won’t last; and oh, where is the lovely full moon tonight?
Telling stories around a campfire is a time-honoured tradition and first Jack, as the oldest, tells his; then Chelsea. Now it’s Billy’s turn. All three children are clever and imaginative, and their stories are delightful. I can’t wait to share this book with my grandchildren!
