D.L. Finn5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great combination book to give as a present!  Reviewed in the United States on November 30, 2020

I love seeing Ms. Cheadle’s cooking creations on social media. They are always fun and creative. When it was time to buy my granddaughters a gift, I knew a book about fairies and cooking would be the perfect fit for my four- and five-year-old grandkids. Before wrapping the book up, I read it. I was charmed with the story, loved the recipes, and impressed mother and son wrote it. I look forward to reading this with my youngest grandchildren and then picking a recipe to make together. This is a great combination book to give as a present!

The final author today is Elizabeth Jade with a recent review for Akea – The Power of Destiny (Book 1 in the Akea Series)

About the book

Akea is born into a family of sled dogs and a life that follows a predictable path, but from the day she first sees the lone wolf, Kazakh, Akea knows her future lies beyond the safety of her home. Kazakh is well aware of Akea’s destiny and the pack laws he will break to help her reach it. Regardless of the challenges ahead, he must make sure this young husky will be ready, even if it means his life.

This husky, wolf story is a new addition to the great animal fiction tradition of Jack London and Erin Hunter, where the story is told through the eyes of the animals. It is a captivating coming of age story which also teaches children about friendship, overcoming obstacles, and most importantly, that there is nothing wrong in being different; In fact, differences can be a force for good. Akea – The Power of Destiny is the first in a series of chapter books for seven to eleven year-olds.

One of the recent reviews for the book

When ‘Akea’ made its way through my letterbox this morning, I told myself I’d make a start on reading the first couple of chapters whilst I did a bit of exercise. An hour later, I was still on the exercise bike as I read the final page.

Akea’s a beautiful story about a husky that discovers she’s descended, partly, from wolves. She works to find her place in the wolf pack, balancing her wild instincts with the domestic husky and sled dog life she was born into. She bridges both worlds, eventually discovering acceptance in both.

This is a short novel. The ten chapters kept me occupied for about an hour, and I really enjoyed the experience. The length of the story meant that it was ideal to read in just one sitting, which is great as the compelling story kept me wanting to keep reading. Meanwhile, this novel is short enough that my young daughter can enjoy it without feeling too daunted. She’ll likely read it in smaller sittings, a chapter or two at a time.

This is a beautifully written novel that really captures the atmosphere of the forest, of sled dog life and of a young husky that wants to find where she belongs.

      • The Sir Chocolate series looks like it would be tempting to any chocolate-craving palate!

        Akea sounds ideal for children just starting into chapter books. Even wee ones can enjoy chapter books, though. We read ‘Charlotte’s Web’ the novel to our daughter when she was three years old and she loved it!

        I am keeping my eye on recommended books and hopefully I will get back to Canada next summer to pick up some for our school library. We’ve been ‘stuck’ in Africa for a year now.

        Thank you for sharing ‘Marisa’s First Fishing Trip’, Sally! It is now one of six books in the ‘Big Shoe Bears and Friends’ series and is also available in French and Spanish.
