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”
I really enjoyed my first trip to Roar in The Land of Roar, so I jumped at the chance to join the blog tour for its sequel – and this series just keeps getting better!
I don’t know if I’ve ever really mentioned it, but we love a good octopus in this house – so I just had to request this fun new picture book!
The final instalment in the Tea Dragon series is just as heartwarming, inclusive, and beautiful as you’d expect!
I loved the first book in this spooky, magical series, and A Sprinkle of Sorcery is even better!
A delightfully queer tale of soft pirates and fierce sirens, filled with kindness and adventure and excellent rep… Our Bloody Pearl is an absolutely treasure!
As a teen I was a big fan of Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girls series, which is set in an elite boarding school that’s a front for a training academy for spies – they were a lot of fun! Since they were heavy on the teen drama, I was interested to see that she’d turned her hand to middle grade with her new book, The Winterborne Home for Vengeance and Valour.
