About the book

Marisa is flying to Gramma and Grampa’s house for a visit. One day, Grampa takes Marisa fishing for the first time. What did she catch? Who was there watching all along – can you find him? What an adventure!

Reviewed in the United States on September 26, 2020

The book is adorably illustrated, with likable characters. Grampa takes Marisa on her fishing trip, where she patiently waits for the fish to bite. After a few comical near misses, Marisa learns that her time with Grampa was more valuable than bringing her trophy home. At first, I thought this was going to be a lesson in patience and perseverance, but turned out to be more of a heart-warming recollection of a special memory with Grampa. Perhaps it was both?

The next review is for the third book in the Piccadilly Street SeriesMrs Murray’s Home by Emily-Jane Hills Orford

About the book

Home is where the heart is, or so they say. It’s also been said that a home is a person’s castle. But home is also with family and friends. Mrs. Murray longs for home, the family home, a castle an ocean away. The Brownies also crave for home, the same castle Mrs. Murray considers home. And Granny? Mary’s Granny hasn’t been home since she was Mary’s age. It’s time to visit the homeland, Scotland. Mary’s excited to tag along with Granny, Mrs. Murray and the Brownies. And then there’s the witch. The one they thought they’d killed. And the treasure. The one they had found. And it all ties together, for better or for worse. Join the adventure in book 3 of the popular “Piccadilly Street Series”

May 20, 2020 Judy & Marianne from Long and Short Reviews rated it four stars really liked it

What an absolutely charming book! This is the first of the series I’ve had the chance to read, but it will by no means be the last one. In fact, I have already ordered the first two and can hardly wait to read them. However, it is not necessary to have read the first two books in order to enjoy this third volume. I was never lost, but would like to see how Mary gets involved with Mrs. Murray and the Brownies (what fun they are… there were some moments when I literally laughed out loud at some of the antics).

Ms. Orford has the ability to draw the reader in and let them feel like they are right there in the moment with the other characters. The action was non-stop and kept me on the edge of my seat as Mary strives against her greatest enemy.

Thanks for a wonderful read, Ms. Orford. I’m looking forward to Mary’s next adventure

The final author today is Wanda Luthman with a recent review for the latest in the Franky the Flamingo series of books. Franky the Fearless Flamingo.

About the book

Franky is back with his 4th book in the Franky the Flamingo series (although each is a standalone book so you don’t have to have read previous books to understand this one).

Franky the Fearless Flamingo rescues the helpless wherever he does go.

In this tale of strength and compassion, a mean crab owes a debt as his ration.
The little sea turtle that he hurt, he later helps with kindess, his new passion.

The crab learned to use his strength for good to help someone in need, just because he could.

Franky the Fearless Flamingo is a hero for helping a mean crab learn the important lesson of empathy.

A recent review for the book

The Franky tales have always been delightful fare for all ages and the newest installment “Franky The Fearless Flamingo” delivers another rousing fun one with underlying premises to all ages. Franky happens to be around when a big mean crab decides to play around with a young turtle. Franky steps into protect the youngster by steering the meanie into a new direction. “Franky The Fearless Flamingo” is also the longest so far and a nice addition to the arc of Franky stories

  1. Thank you so much, Sally, for sharing my most recent release. It is also available in French and is soon coming out in Spanish. I have two more books coming out soon that are part of the ‘Big Shoe Bears and Friends’ series. They will be available bilingually (i.e. both languages in one book) in English-French and English-Spanish.
