Current bedtime reading for the 10 and 7 year old. We loved When the Sea Turns to Silver and this one is proving to be just as charming.
I think the kids may ask for a goldfish by the end of the book.
#tallshipcelebration @CrowCAH In this modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast, the male lead definitely has a #fortune. Unfortunately he‘s also terribly scarred which makes him avoid people at all costs. That is until he sees Gretchen, and comes up with a way to be near her. It‘s very #romantsy so far.
#TallShipCelebration From prostitutes living on ships while the navy ship was in port, to long suffering wives of seamen living at sea , to women pretending to be men to find their #fortune as a sailor this book takes a look at an often obscure part of nautical history.British Royal Navy in the age of sail.
I listened to this charming, imaginative story on audio, but plan to get a hard copy for the lovely illustrations and to read aloud with my 8-year-old—I think he will love it.
Minli‘s adventure is chock-full of Chinese folktales, colorful characters, and sweet messages. Lots of fun to listen to!
This was my #DiverseMiddleGrade choice for #Booked2019.
A young genius covets the fairy people‘s #fortune and kidnaps one of them to hold for ransom. #literaryluck
Overall I found this a little cheesy. I‘m not sorry I read it, but I don‘t need to continue the series or watch the #booktomovie adaptation. #Booked2019
