Mini-Reviews

Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes — Roald Dahl’s work is always a brilliant read and this was no different. It’s short and fun, but who doesn’t love parodies of tales meant for children?

Dracula the UnDead (audiobook) — This was my first experience with an audiobook and I was mildly interested at best. The story itself got quite tedious and predictable after awhile and I think that listening to it being read just highlighted the bad things about this book.

Cautionary Tales for Children — It must be my morbid sense of humour, but I thought all of the tales in this book were extremely hilarious.

Franny K. Stein books 3-7 — I’m in love with this series! It’s so cute and I’m even more excited to cosplay Franny for Halloween. I want more after the seventh book and the supplemental books.

Doctor Who: The Last Voyage (audiobook) — Ugh. This took place in the Tenth Doctor era and was read by David Tennant. Did not enjoy this story.

Warriors: Cats of the Clans — I enjoyed getting to see full colour illustrations of the cats and read their biographies! I think I should have waited until I was further in the series, though. There were quite a few cats and storyline mentions that I didn’t recognise at all.

Dewey: There’s a Cat in the Library — This is the easy reader version of Dewey by Vicki Myron; I’m a sucker for this story. I wish I’d gotten a chance to meet Dewey.

Doctor Who: The Dalek Conquests (audiobook) — I really, really enjoyed this. It was part audiobook, part omnibus/programme guide. It’s a pretty genius idea.

Ashley Learns About Strangers — Short and useful book by the Duchess of York about a little girl who learns the importance of not wandering off while shopping with her mother.

Manners with a Library Book — I want to make every single patron I deal with at work read this book. It’s filled with common sense about how to treat library books, but common sense isn’t so common anymore.

The Little Prince (audiobook) — THIS WAS AMAZING. Why did I not do anything with this work sooner? Some parts of this were just so beautiful that I started to cry.

Anne Frank: The Anne Frank House Authorized Graphic Biography — I’m so glad I read this; it was really well done and still had me tearing up at the end.

Garfield: Potbelly of Gold — Oh, Garfield, you silly cat.

The Adventures of Ook and Gluk: Kung-Fu Cavemen from the Future — From the author of Captain Underpants; this was not as good and I won’t be reading the next books.
