I was a huge fan of DN Bryn’s Our Bloody Pearl (as you can see from my review!), so when I saw they were returning to the world of These Treacherous Tides for the start of a new series, I was delighted!Continue reading “Blog Tour: Once Stolen by DN Bryn”
I’m so happy to be part of the blog tour for beautiful new middle grade adventure The Magic Place! Anything with a magical cat character is going to be a hit in my book, and this story is a really fun and entertaining read – it’s almost what you’d get if you crossed The Twits with A Little Princess, but of course with an added (and wonderful!) feline companion. Tomte was especially keen to get his paws on it, as you can see…
For my stop on the tour, author Chris Wormell has kindly given us a glimpse into his writing process, and, most importantly, an introduction to the friendship between our heroine Clementine and her cat, Gilbert!Continue reading “Blog Tour: The Magic Place”
I’ve been a huge fan of this fun middle grade series since the first book, The Dragon in the Library (my review is here!), and loved the second book, The Monster in the Lake, too (review for that one here!). So today I’m bringing you a review of book three of Kit’s madcap adventures, The Wizard in the Wood!Continue reading “Review: The Wizard in the Wood”
The first Jasper and Scruff book was a delightful story of two oddly-matched friends, and I couldn’t wait to read another of their adventures!Continue reading “Review: Jasper and Scruff Take a Bow”
I’m always on the lookout for middle grade books which showcase princesses who take charge of their own destiny, and Princess Rose and the Quest of the Golden Gown is a lovely example!
I really enjoyed Carlie Sorosiak’s I, Cosmo, even though I’m not a dog person (see my review of that here!), so when I saw her next book was cat-focused, I was over the moon!
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!
I knew the moment I first set eyes on the description for Eva Evergreen, Semi-Magical Witch that it was going to be exactly my kind of book – a young witch’s journey of self-discovery is something I’m always looking for, and this one is perfect!Continue reading “Review: Eva Evergreen, Semi-Magical Witch”
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”
