I’m a huge fan of Michelle Harrison’s middle grade books (see my reviews of A Pinch of Magic and A Sprinkle of Sorcery for why!) so I was really excited to be invited onto the blog tour for her first foray into chapter books – Midnight Magic is a rhyming tale of a girl and her pesky magical cat, told in verse and beautifully illustrated by Elissa Elwick!
Jeremy Worried About The Wind is a sweet picture book that tackles the tricky subject of anxiety and worrying in an upbeat way!
I was really excited for Jasbinder Bilan’s second book after loving Asha and the Spirit Bird (review here), and I think I maybe ended up loving Tamarind and the Star of Ishta even more!
A wonderfully witchy picture book that cleverly handles a protagonist who’s too nervous to talk – I loved this sweet and heart-warming story!
A wintry animal tale with a historical twist, Frost sounded like a perfect kids read to snuggle up with now that it’s getting cold!
I adored the first book in the Starfell series when I read it last summer (check out my review here!), so I’m thrilled to report that book two is just as good, if not better!
The latest book in Little Tiger’s Colour Illustration series is a sweet, fantastical tale focusing on the power of memories and story-telling, and an adorable relationship between a boy and his grandad.
Cats and history in one story? There was no way this wasn’t going to be on my radar!

Marshmallow Pie The Cat Superstar was already on my radar, because I’m always looking for new cat books, but what made me absolutely determined to get my paws on it was this illustration that Clara Vulliamy tweeted:
Now, I know I don’t share as many pictures over here as I do on Twitter, so in case you don’t know what my cat Tomte and I look like… here we are:
I shared this picture with Clara and, incredibly sweetly, she offered to send me copies of both Marshmallow Pie books so we could meet our doppelgangers! And having read them, I can tell you that any cat lover, or reader of joyously funny chapter books, needs to order both immediately!Continue reading “Review: Marshmallow Pie The Cat Superstar, and Marshmallow Pie The Cat Superstar on TV”
