Friendship is a common thread running through many stories for young children. As they begin to develop an awareness of others, children also notice their similarities and their differences to each other. As a bookseller I have heard young people ask questions in honest and sometimes surprisingly interesting ways while playing here in the Hundred Acre Wood! Categories: Reviews

I saw the new Sherlock Holmes movie recently and really enjoyed it. The movie had a lot more action than I remembered in the novels (and way more fighting!), while still maintaining the brilliant deductive reasoning the master detective was famous for. I started thinking about the many spin offs in the book world that can trace their origins back to Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson.Categories: Reviews

A Review of Skellig by
Michael has just moved to a new house. His baby sister is ill. Dr. Death keeps coming. One day, Michael is exploring his broken down garage and he finds a mysterious creature. What is it? Is it bird, human or angel?
Skellig is a story of family and friendship. Michael was a very sensitive character and I think when he met Mina it made him see that not everything is what it seems. I find the character of Mina really unique and creative. The book wouldn't work without her. After reading the back of Skellig, I wasn't sure I wanted to read it. I started to read it anyway and discovered that it was actually a great book. It's like that saying, "Never judge a book by its cover."
Skellig was a great read and I would recommend it.Categories: Reviews
