My Review:

Young Max Milford has been in and out of several foster homes since his parents' accident. There have been lots of disappointments, but he has now come to live with his grandfather. Max can't believe this will last long either, although everything changes for him when he finds an old deserted library of misfit books--misfits just like him.

I enjoyed this unique children's adventure story by author, Karen Andrea.

(Thank you to the author for my review copy.)

My Review:

What an adorable book! It contains 100 poems that will delight any young child. Poems like Birthdays; The Birthday Bus; My Sister Saw A Dinosaur; Hello Rain; and Cookie Magic are just a few that every child can relate to. This is absolutely one of the best children's poetry books around.
