Disturbingly delightful! These aren’t definitely for the squeamish of readers. I’d been meaning to read the first book for awhile now but I guess seeing a sequel made me want to read it more. Super cute stories!
A young African-American girl who loves nothing more than to daydream and spend her day with her dad.

Timmy Failure continues to amuse in this third installment. It seems we’re digging a little deeper into the boy detective’s psyche which I appreciate. Plus, unexpected developments make it fresh and I can’t wait for the next one!
Pranks. Cows. More pranks. More cows.
The first in a new series, The Terrible Two is guaranteed to make even the most reluctant readers chuckle and keep on turning the pages to see how the prank war escalates and perhaps just to learn more facts about cows they never thought they wanted to know.
Writing about 9/11 is a tricky thing because it’s still so fresh and each of us has a personal recollection of it. Just a Drop of Water looks at the immediate effects of a shared national tragedy in the life of Jake Green. In a blink of an eye, his world is changed and his beliefs tested.
Readers who may be too young for the Percy Jackson series can get their mythology fix with this early chapter book series. Half-god, half-human Pandemonium (aka Demon) ends up being the beast keeper for the gods. As if tending mythical creatures wasn’t tough enough, he has to make sure he doesn’t offend the rather moody gods and goddesses.
Young Precious Ramotswe is back in a new adventure. Usually set in her hometown of Botswana, she gets to spend some time with her Aunt who runs a safari camp. There, exciting things are happening as a movie is being filmed featuring a lion actor. It’s up to Precious to help when the animal star suddenly goes missing.
Charming text. Unique illustrations. Not too scary situations but plenty of small excitements. My only complaint is that everything ties up too nicely.
