Kid Review from Mia: Emily and Carlo

Kid Review from Mia: Emily and Carlo

Emily and CarloThe only sibling left in the Dickinson house In Amherst, Massachusetts, in the winter of 1849, Emily gets a dog who becomes her constant companion and who is featured in some of the poems she writes. Includes brief notes on the life and work of Emily Dickinson.

Mia says:

I read this book with my great-aunt last week-end and I love it. The story, the poems and the pictures are beautiful! The story of a very large dog and a very small woman that loved to write poetry – Emily Dickinson. My favorite poem in the story is:

Twas my one glory
Let it be
I was owned of thee.”

Emily and her dog, Carlo, were best friends and loved to walk and watch – flowers, frogs, everything. They were best friends! I love gardens, dogs and poems! I hope you like it too.”

Kid Review: Ghost Pirate Treasure

Kid Review: Ghost Pirate Treasure

Creepella Von Cacklefur Ghost Pirate Treasure

Creepella investigates mysterious holes around Squeakspeare’s mansion – could legendary pirate Morgan Blackwhisker be searching for his lost buried treasure?

Lily says:

I really like it! The Creepella books are WAY funny!

Personally, I’m a fan of “WAY funny!” so I’m going to give this one a try. I’ve read Geronimo Stilton’s books about himself and his sister Thea, but have not read any about Creepella von Cacklefur, a journalist just like Geronimo…but creepy! Author: Geronimo Stilton

Geronimo Stilton. He’s an author. He’s a mouse. He solves mysteries. If you like Geronimo and Creepella, try Hermux Tantamoq, a watchmaker mouse who also stumbles into mysteries and solves them.
