Another brilliant book from Stefan Bachmann.
This kid is a fabulous writer with an educated imagination and a great sense of humor.
The references to Dickens and the witty jokes, had us laughing, while the dark sinster plots had the kids on the edge of their seats.
Not Like any fairy story you would expect, It is BETTER.
Hoping the author has composed music for this volume as well.
Sadly, for a book about wordsmithing, the author could not choose a word other than "F*ck" 50 times in the first 3 chapters. like listening to a 15 yr old curse because they think it is cool.
So much for this being his "most mature" writing.
if they had better material to read.
Hawthorne -yes. He is one of my favourite authors
Life would be good. I know it is a story of generations cursed but it could be exciting given a proper narration.
i doubt it
I had hoped to find an adventure story for the kids, but this book had a lot of religion in it.
If your family practices Buddhism you may enjoy it very much.
With players of the Royal Shakespearean Company, you won't be disappointed.
The cadence of the sonnets, well placed pauses and sighs, will help the novice read along.
While so many of the heroines described are focused outside of themselves, the author keeps returning to Self. Had hoped there would be more depth.
...this is one both the child and the parent will enjoy hearing.
The Screaming Latke, A Holiday Story by Lemony Snicket
because it is also a holiday story with the same tongue-in-cheek style but Chanukah focused. (would love an audible of this one)
