A cute tale about a turtle who goes off on a quest to save his friend- a girl who unbeknownst to him just went to school.
A gentle story that reminds readers that even in dark moments, we all have the ability to shine a light.
A contemplative picture book about perspective- of what a thing is in a particular time and what it becomes over time through various lenses. A book worth rereading.
A quirky tale about a young entrepreneur who gives her expert advice on what she does best- walk ants!
I was absolutely charmed by this story. It’ll make for a nice read a loud at home or in the classroom. I love the lesson that just because something is different or misunderstood doesn’t make it a monster. I also like that it encourages creative problem solving.
A collection of stories around the premise of what happens after school on a specific day. Fascinating pieces showcase different lives. I only wish the connecting factor was stronger or delivered a stronger, maybe even surprising, punch.
If Encyclopedia Brown wanted to be a lawyer instead of a detective, he would be Theodore Boone. Both series have a small town feel to it although, admittedly, Grisham’s is a bit grittier. Even then, not by much. I’m kind of interested how long this series will go for.
The last Tommy and Tuppence mystery was also the last novel Agatha Christie wrote. A bit too meandering for my liking.
Goodbye Poirot and Hastings! Even though I’ve read this a couple of times before, I was still surprised by the solution. And maybe because I was reading this after so many years, it seemed like a real goodbye.
Yay! The last Miss Marple! The story started out like it was going to be a whole other genre at first (like a supernatural thriller) but it reeled itself back and became a mystery. While supposing to be the final mystery featuring Miss Marple, this was written a couple decades ago so it almost read as an earlier case. Some of the reasons behind certain actions were hard to swallow.
