My Book Review of Happy Birthday, Little Witch!

Happy Birthday, Little Witch! by Lieve Baeten My rating: 5 of 5 stars Love it! I read this with my preschool-aged granddaughter, and she was smitten.

My Book Review of We Travel the Spaceways (Black Stars)

We Travel the Spaceways by Victor LaValle My rating: 4 of 5 stars Original Storytelling With An Ancient Alien Twist What a unique story. I was intrigued by the blend of ancient alien mythology with a modern subculture of the overlooked homeless. This was not at all what I expected, but certainly an interesting read. What I liked was showing
