Dragon War1205_403812159706987_367318730_ns

This book is a winner.  Danny recently moved to a new town and school after losing his father in a traffic accident. He faces bullying at his new middle school and makes one friend at school Milly.  He begins to place his precious items in a bench window seat and discovers a secret chamber at the bottom. In the chamber is a book and a box. He begins to read the book that seems to come alive pictures dancing before his eyes and reads the surprising text that is written in normal handwriting. The book is about a girl before him who traveled to the land of Dorcian. It is filled with incredible plants and creatures. The best part, incredible dragons. He is interrupted with reading but wants to go to Dorcian.  You have to believe to be transported to this wondrous land. He does believe and is transported there only to discover it has changed and his help is needed after becoming friends with a Dragon. He goes back to his world and school. After hiding from a bully in a custodian closet he transports Millie and himself to the Dorcian.  Milly is captured and held captive in the dungeon at the dark fortress. They discover another child who wrote part of the book has been held captive for years and was missing from the new town Danny moved too. They must save them all and conquer the evil one who wants to make Dorcian all dark. This book if full of adventure, magic, real issues, friendships, foes, fear and finding ones strength to conquer all even when it seems hopeless. I think children would love this book of all ages. Great book for ages 9 to 13.

 Fox and Rabbits Garden (A Tale of the Rabbit-less Stew) By Laurel Heger , Illustrated by Monette Pangan

 cover(1)I like clever writing.  Kids like clever at least mine do. This book is suitable for age’s pre-k to 7. I do think adults and older children would enjoy reading Ms. Heger’s books to younger ones. The book is about a rabbit working in its garden and making a stew. Along comes a fox thinking this stew in progress would make a good meal for him, when he can add the rabbit to the pot. The rabbit out smarts the fox, he encourages the fox to assist preparing the pot of stew, with kindness and friendship.  While you are reading the exchange of the rabbit and fox you are also getting a recipe to make a stew or soup.  One spoonful of the stew the fox is surprised the rabbit-less stew is good. The book ends with tips for growing vegetables that can be added to a stew.  The illustrations are bright and delightful by Monette Pangan  This book is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

969482_605956119436517_1906058388_nFox and Rabbits Cranberry Surprise by Laure Heger Illustrated by Monette Pangan

This is book two in this series of Rabbit and Fox.  The book starts out with Rabbit and Fox tending their garden and picking fresh beautiful cranberries to add to the pantry supply.  As they are relaxing after a day of work they hear a noise in the pantry. They find a curious hedgehog looking for an easy meal. He has fallen in a basket of eggs and then slips into the new supply of cranberries. Rabbit is upset that much of the supplies have been depleted and the mess they have to clean up in the pantry.  He does not remove or yell at the hedgehog, but instead decides to assist and clean the fellow from all the goo on his body. Hedge Hog, I am sure will become a new character in future stories.  These stories are like fables they give you a hidden message. Even though a mistake is made, kindness not anger is the best response. At the end is a recipe for cranberry sauce. I can see why Fox and Rabbit has been selected as, Goodwill Ambassadors for Seattle Farmers Market Alliance, The farmers market in Shelton, Washington.

I look forward to more of Fox and Rabbits adventures with their garden. Book is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
