Comments: Lisa: Wanna read? (If you could hear my voice, you'd know that was a Willow reference.)

Ohhh I'll play, I love reading chapter books to my kids. Is there a deadline?

Yay! I have to turn in all the reviews the second week of January.

That sounds cool. Hey, this weekend the CGU (clarmont graduate university) library is having a book sale from their childrens library. So i am probably going to go and see if they have good stuff. Anything i should keep my eye out for?

Part way through Faries of the Nutfolk, and so far its really good (I'm doing this now incase life explodes and I don't get back to you in time). The story line is engaging, the writing flows well and uses a nice combination of words (meaning it doesn't over do it on the adjectives and adverbs, but is still very descriptive...unlike me). It is really easy to read aloud and the words just flow. The story definitely pulls you in and I hesitate before putting down the book after a chapter because I want to know what happens next. The author also captures the mind of a little girl really well. It's not too childish/babyish but not too grown up. Both Lobster and Marvey like hearing the story and I think Lobster is intrigued at the idea of little people even smaller than she is!

So we're halfway through and that's my opinion so far.
