Can friendships survive gossip?
Holly Keller’s HELP: A STORY OF FRIENDSHIP tells of Mouse and his very different friends who get along well – until Mouse hears from a mutual friend that his snake friend may be dangerous. Can friendships survive gossip? When Mouse is indeed endangered, danger – and rescue – come from unexpected places in this gentle story.

Books for early readers
One five year old twin granddaughter had selected Help!: A Story of Friendship to give to her school library on her birthday. But on that morning she changed her mind and decided to give the school a different choice. It’s a cute story with a wonderful message that rings truer to me than ones from Dora or Hannah Montana. It would no doubt be a good addition to the Obamas library. Who knows, maybe it would be a book that Sarah Palin wanted banned. The list of banned books posted on our library’s door right now includes all the Harry Potter series, which got so so many young people turned onto reading, and a slew of other well written jewels. Hope Holly Keller will keep writing*****

A read-aloud favorite!
My sister gave this book to my four-year-old daughter last year, and it has quickly become one of our favorites. It’s sweet, simple, and endearing, and has a wonderful message. Plus, there is a lot of dialog between the animal characters, which invites the reader to use silly voices, and makes it a fun read-aloud. My daughter shared it with her preschool class one day, and the teacher said it’s become a class favorite as well.

Help! book
This book is age appropriate, eye catching, and has a wonderful moral! As a teacher, I would say this is a must-buy!

kids loved it!
I’m a second grade teacher and luckily I found this book to talk about trust, gossiping and friendship with my children. amazing effect! They even wanted to create a role play based on the book!! We have analyzed it and take it to our personal situations. Great choice. Kids read it once and again. Five stars!!!

Growing up with a non traditional family..
This book was every bit as touching and moving as Dar’s music. Amalee is an 11 year old girl who grows up with out her mother. When her father falls ill Amalee finds herself in the arms of a family(her fathers friends) not so traditional but just as strong, loving, and important as any blood relatives could be. This is an excelent book for growing up. Especialy for children who don’t have a traditional family. Aunts and Uncles are friends of the parents and mom or dad are missing. Also just a good touching book.

Sometimes Friends Make the Best Family
For any family unit far away from relatives or who has created their own patchwork family from dear friends … this book is a gem of a find. So many households today do not have extended families built of aunts, uncles and cousins like those once-upon-a-time, therefore we often find it is the shoulders of beloved friends we lean, cry and rely on most. Amalee rings true of those precious “hand-made” families.

Amalee Amazing!!!!!!
I’ve just finished reading Amalee by Dar Williams. This book is possibly the best book I have ever read, unless I have read an absolutely mind-blowing story in my sleep that I don’t remember reading. One thing I love about the book is the way that people change character the further in to the book you get. For instance Dr.Nurstrom changes from someone who is very pompous and strict to someone who ends up being quite different… Another example is Ms Severance who goes from disliking Amalee to having their own secret conversations during class that only them and the reader understands. Their language is almost all in metaphors. This brings me onto my next point. Until now I have never read a book with so many metaphors in it. This book is a brilliant example of how to solve problems at home and at school. It’s funny, exciting, sad in places and generally EXCELLENT!!!!

Poison Sleep Marla Mason Book 2 by TA Pratt

Why Buy A Poison Sleep Marla Mason Book 2 by TA Pratt?
The bad girl of the magical underworld is back and badder than ever

Someone wants Marla Mason dead. Usually that’s not news. As chief sorcerer of Felport, someone always wants her dead. But this time she’s the target of a renegade assassin who specializes in killing his victims over days, months, or even years. Not to mention a mysterious knife-wielding killer in black who pops up in the most unexpected places. To make matters worse, an inmate has broken out of the Blackwing Institute for criminally insane sorcerers—a troubled psychic who can literally reweave the fabric of reality to match her own traumatic past.

With her wisecracking partner Rondeau reluctantly in tow, Marla teams up with a “love-talker” whose dangerous erotic spells not even she can resist. Together they’re searching the rapidly transforming streets of Felport for a woman who’s become the Typhoid Mary of nightmares, infecting everything—and everyone—she touches with a chaos worse than death itself.

Poison Sleep
Who knew that sleeping could cause such a mess! Never a dull moment in this book. A definite add to my top 10 list.

pratt has become a new favorite author
In the field of fantasy fiction, littered with copycat ideas, preachiness and mediocre writing, Pratt is an outstanding new contributor. Marla Mason is a fun, original character, as are all the supporting cast. The action and plot developments are fast, amusing, and inventive. The ‘personality’ of the book is upbeat, cheerful, energetic and positive, in a cynical, real world, grown up way. There is nothing depressing or mean-spirited about this author (unlike George Martin, say). and last of all – becoming increasingly rare these days – there is no preachy anti-war or anti-violence message. I’ve read all four books and they are all good (although the latest one spell games, not as good). I really like everything about them.

My favorite of the series — and that’s saying something!
How do I love Marla? Let me count the ways! T. A. Pratt is a genius! He’s given us a female Harry Potter with a wicked tongue and the fighting skills of a ninja. In this book, he explores the unconscious and multi-dimensions and dreams and wow — it’s so well written. It’s amazing that he took on this subject matter — and then executed it with such dexterity! Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

Oh, and did I mention I LOVE T. A. Pratt!

Amanda by Debra White Smith
“Amanda” is book 5 out of 6 in the Jane Austen series by Debra White Smith. I have enjoyed all five that I have read, but thus far, “Amanda” is my favorite. That could be because Jane Austen’s “Emma” is also my favorite of her novels. “Amanda” is a witty and modernized retelling of the classic, “Emma.” The author’s use of descriptive words is great and I like her style of expression. The exotic locale of Tasmania caused me to do a little Internet surfing to see pictures of the beautiful lands described in the book. I found the plot very close the original work with the exception that we get to experience Nate’s (Knightley’s) point of view far more. He does act like a love-sick puppy at times, but that’s alright with me! If you enjoyed the movie “Clueless” then chances are you’ll also enjoy this funny, romantic tale of “mismatched matchmaking” and true love triumphing in the end!

Where To Buy Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher At The Lowest Price?

Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher

Why Buy A Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher?
Rosamunde Pilchers novel, despite its chilly setting, will warm the hearts of her growing army of loyal fans. Winter Solstice has all the familiar trademarks of a Pilcher saga, spun in her inimitable, homey, beguiling style. The story is told, chapter by chapter, from the perspectives of an eclectic array of characters. Former actress Elfrida–not very good by her own admission–leaves London for a geriatric bolthole in the country where she meets retired schoolmaster and organist, Oscar. Meanwhile, Carrie (Elfridas second cousin), returns to London from Austria where she had a brilliant career in the tourist industry, only to find her niece, 14-year-old Lucy, sadly neglected by her selfish mother and equally spoiled grandmother. Finally, handsome Sam is recalled from New York by his company chairman to revive an ailing Scottish textile mill.

As one character after another must learn to live with their losses, they find themselves collectively spirited northwards, from Sussex to Scotland, by way of Cornwall. And, as events unfurl, slowly, surely, but inevitably, those in need find solace in unexpected places. While her characterizations are generally carefully crafted and entirely rounded, Pilchers greatest strengths lie in her natural, easy narratives of everyday life and her thoroughly researched and captivating descriptions of scenery and surroundings. –Carey Green

review of Winter Solstice
I purchased this for a book club I am a member of. I haven’t read it yet. It is in great condition and ready for me to read.

Even better than “The Shell Seekers”
Yeah, it’s chick-lit but not overly so and is simply a great read. Think Maeve Binchy but way better.

simply a masterpiece!
Rosamund Pilcher is one of my very favourite authors and this book is one of her best, or perhaps even her best book!
the plot, after all these reviews needs no further description i think. i just wanted to say that this book, except being written in a very satisfactory way, has it all.
love, tenderness, romance, coming of age, healing, restored hope and faith. and, on top of it all, Christmas.
this book touched me deeply and ever since i read it i carry it with me as a maturing, educating, worthwhile experience.
anyone, i think, who reads it will find a great part of himself or herself in it, one way or another.
a tender book, full of warmth and heart.
