The Cottage in the Woods by Katherine Coville

Reviewed by Anonymous

The new governess Ursula Brown, an Enchanted Bear, moves to the Vaughns’ estate to teach their son, Teddy. As she gets to know the people of the surrounding town, Miss Brown finds the Anthropologist Society, a group that violently tries to silence and take away the rights of the Enchanted Animals. She joins the people who fight against the society. Soon, she solves the mystery of the Vaughn house. A little wild girl , called Goldilocks, also lives there. Miss Brown must fight to keep Goldilocks and Teddy safe from Goldilocks’ past abusers and the Society while discovering her true love.

A good “old-fashioned” story that delves into the issue of racism in an interesting and understandable way. It does a good job of melding the old fairytales together. It will become a personal favorite.
