Review: In this book written by Joanne Lecuyer, Juliane, a young witch meets a traveler with dark intentions who needs to be escorted into the forest. An evil spell is unleashed it needs to be stopped. This book was wonderful, teaching children that power isn't everything, but friendship and love is. This book teaches you to get over your fears, to love and respect others, and be grateful. I liked how this book had Dutch and German words in it for children to learn.
Erika-Elizabeth's Review: Grandpa Guff is the author of Grandpa Guff and the Pasta Wars. He starts telling another one of his funny and unbelievable stories. The story begins at home as his character talks about the Pasta Wars. The Italian people came and started up restaurants. Everyone wanted their restaurants to be better and some began copying their ideas. This made them mad and soon a war began.
I didn't really have a favourite part because I loved all of this story but if I had to pick, it would be everyone thinking Grandpa Guff was the saboteur I loved the illustrations in this book as many of them were hilarious. I liked how the book was funny and unpredictable. I always wondered what may happen next.
Review: Pat Frayne is the author of Topaz and the Evil Wizard. The story starts in Knownotten Kingdom where a young fairy girl named Orange Blossom can't find her brother. Topaz, a Yellow Conjure Cat, steps in and finds her brother but when he does things take a turn and other events happen... I loved how this book was suspenseful, I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. I found the story very interesting as the story said more about Topaz.
Erika-Elizabeth's Review: The Sword of Demelza is a very suspenseful book written by J.E. Rogers. The book is about a few things, starting off with the prologue where you learn a bit about Devon, a fox who lives at the Acadia Abbey with with the monks there.
The book introduces you to many other characters all of whom play an important role in the story. Each of these begin with their own quest and eventually meet each other. They soon learn that they must work together and help each other out. I found each of the characters to be pretty smart and courageous. I think they teach the reader about working together and that there are hard choices in life which we must all try to do our best to choose the right one. There are many morals in this book and that is wonderful! I really liked the story!
Be sure to check out her website with the kids because it's full of unusual animals to learn about!
Erika-Elizabeth's Review: J.D. Means takes you on a great and exciting adventure full of suspense in his book, “Millie and Honey - The Blue Angel Planet (Volume 3).” The book is about two characters named Millie and Honey who find out something is wrong on the Blue Angel Planet. They go to the planet to find out and help them to solve these problems. This reader liked how you could hear and understand Honey and the other dogs even though they were animals. The story contained much mystery which keeps you wanting more and I found Honey to be my favourite character. This story had beautiful illustrations and will keep the reader entertained. I can't wait for the next book!
Review: “The Adventures of Cefa the Cat: Cefa Finds a Home” is a wonderful tale about a cat named Cefa who gets adopted from the animal shelter. Cefa is a cute little cat who likes many new things but also gets scared of some too just like a real cat. Children will not only learn a moral in this story and a Russian word but will also learn more about cats. This delightful tale teaches a little on cat behaviour and things to watch out for when you take a cat outside. I would recommend this book to any young reader with a cat or one who is about to get one. You can also find this book in Spanish and in Kindle (both in English and Spanish). The link below will take you directly to the English book version on Amazon.
Erika-Elizabeth's Review: “The Witch, the Cat and the Egg” is a creatively written book about a witch who is asked to do something by a dragon. The main character, Juliane, the witch is a good role model for children because she is kind and loves helping others. The potions and spells she knew were creatively thought up as well as the names of the forest creatures by the author. I liked how the characters helped each other, showing that they were great friends and it made a good lesson in friendship. The illustrations that were in the book were good and my favourite character was Magicus her cat because I love cats and thought he was smart.
Erika-Elizabeth's Review: G. Guff's Granpa Guff, the Accidental Astronaut leave the reader in suspense right from the start of the book. The story is about how Grandpa Guff accidentally ends up on a trip to Mars. He has some troubles along the way when he meets some hairy spiders who were Mexican Barking Spiders. The illustrations were good and many were quite humorous while depicting gross and funny parts of the book. As a nine year old girl, I think all children will like this book. The story has a mysterious air to it as Granpa Guff has you believing his story may be real. The book was very descriptive and well-written and I loved how imaginative the names of the cities were. I think the book is a great read for children and is quite funny.
