(Book Review) Ronaldo: The Phantom Carrot Snatcher, by Maxine Sylvester

I find that when I’m hooked to a fictional series, I try to read all available books in the series very quickly. It’s truer when the series falls into one of my favorite genres. I recently read the book Ronaldo: The Reindeer Flying Academy, and was quite impressed by it. When I saw that the second book was also available, I didn’t wait further. I borrowed the same quickly and read it.

(Book Review) Ronaldo: The Reindeer Flying Academy, by Maxine Sylvester

I find children’s fiction to be a genre that I turn to when in need of comfort reads. It brings that sense of innocence, the joy of childhood back. One of my best friends read this book recently and I found it on Kindle Unlimited when I checked. I borrowed it immediately and started reading.

Book Review: The Tales of Beedle the Bard, by JK Rowling

The Harry Potter series is perhaps my favorite fantasy series ever and one of my favorite series ever, across any genre.

I had read Quidditch through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them earlier. This book completes the set.

Book Review: A New Leaf for Lyle, by Holly Jahangiri

Children’s fiction is a beautiful genre. I love it because it has to be written in a simple language, one that the child has to understand. The simple presentation adds to the magic, and more often than not, I imagine myself reading the story to a child. The themes don’t necessarily have to be convoluted either. It was very recently that I came to know of this book, and thought I’d read it.

Book Review: The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Sometimes, I want to read a book with lesser number of pages, a quick read that can be interesting as well. I chanced upon this book, The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupery while searching for such a book. I liked the cover art too.

Book Review: The Elephants’ Child, by M L Eaton

There are books which are children’s books, but which adults enjoy too. And there are some which, after reading, you feel like it’s a book that is meant for adults, but children would love it too. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is one such. And this book, The Elephants’ Child by M L Eaton, is one that perhaps might be a bit of both categories.
