The Land of Stories: An Author's Odyssey
by Chris Colfer

View in Library Catalog



Chris leaves us again with his signature cliffhanger! My favorite character was the Blissworm! I applaud the author for clearly stating the message, loud and proud, which was: Children around the world, let your imagination run wild! Always believe in yourself no matter the situation! Anyone can be a writer, but what you have to offer is how you will make your stand on this world!

How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk
by Adele Faber,Elaine Mazlish,Joanna Faber

This book presents some really great ideas for how to teach and encourage your child to understand and take charge of their emotions while simultaneously showing them love and respect. It has simple, relatively easy to follow (if you can resist the urge to do what usually comes naturally to most people) guidelines with evidence to back up their theories. I have tried some of these strategies with my only child already and it has helped! I liked this book so much that I bought my own copy (the first copy I read was from the library) so I can refer back to it later on. The only reason I gave it for stars is that some of the strategies are a little harder to figure how to implement with smaller children. Luckily, there is a sequel to this book that addresses that problem!

Pride Wars The Spinner Prince
by Matt Laney

A great book based millions of years in the future where humans and all their technology have died and descendants of the great cats have evolved to be fully sentient, this story is based on the adventures of the prince of the singas this story will have you buried in it for hours on end.

Backbeat

Overall this was a pretty good book, but it took SO long for me to get into. All the physics terminology made me sort of lose track of what was going on.

Postern Of Fate
by Agatha Christie

View in Library Catalog



Much as it pains me to give Tommy and Tuppence such a (relatively) low rating, I really can’t do anything else. Agatha Christie is all over the place in this one. Similar to another of her later novels that I recently read, Passenger to Frankfurt, Postern of Fate is rather rambling with not much in the way of actual plot. Definitely not the typical try-to-solve-it-as-you-go murder mysteries that Christie’s known for. Both books are primarily concerned with political conspiracies, and contain numerous lengthy monologues about politics, the uselessness of “young people these days”, and the general deterioration of the world at large. Postern of Fate has Tommy and Tuppence, at least, which gives it a slight leg up, but honestly, even the Beresfords started to wear a bit thin, with their vague statements, and “I mean”s, and overall repetition of thought and speech. They’re just not as clever and interesting as they are in the other books. Also, what on EARTH is with the timeline in this book?!? Mary Jordan supposedly died “60 years ago” shortly before WWI, except Tuppence specifically states that she was 3 years old when Mary died and Tuppence served in WWI, so she can’t have been 3 shortly before WWI. Plus, Tommy says Tuppence is over 70, so she would have been at least 10 when Mary died 60 years ago. I did like seeing several recurring characters show up, especially who Mr. Crispin turned out to be. But otherwise, Postern of Fate is fairly underwhelming.

Art Studio Dogs
by Walter Foster Publishing

View in Library Catalog



Awesome book, it's an excellent "how to" guide for painting or sketching dog portraits. It tells you what colors to use to achieve a specific look, pictures included. The sketch portion shows you how to draw different types of dog hair types and lengths. Overall a very helpful book if you're looking to do a dog themed project. Even has little cartoon drawing versions of dogs at the end.

Little Critter: Just a School Project

This time Little Critter must complete a project for a science fair, but he doesn't what to choose! Lucky for him, something worms its way into his thoughts!!

Super Fly
by Todd H. Doodler

View in Library Catalog



This book is tolerable, but it's not particularly remarkable. It is a good choice for kids who enjoy a superhero themed story, but I wouldn't recommend it to any other audience. There's not really much to be said about it. It's not bad, but it's not particularly good either. The quality of writing is ok, as is the plot and character development. It's an easy/light read, but it's not exactly a "page turner". I've read books that it was a struggle to finish, and this wasn't that. It really is just remarkably average.
