Magemother:The Mage And The Magpie

The Magemother series is from what I’ve heard is very good. After friends told me about it I decided to read it.

It’s about a girl,Brinley, who knows she was found by her ‘father’ at an old abandoned ghost town. Throughout her life she is always wondering about her mother. After hearing bells and learning that bells were heard when she was found she decides to investigate. Suddenly being whisked away from earth and brought to a new world, Brinley finds out she is invisible. Along with this invisibility she goes on an adventure with many magical creatures and people, eventually learning who her mother is. This book is a definite 5 star rating. very intriguing, and captivating for young children and adults alike.

The book Ella Enchanted is by Gail Levine….

Twice upon a time:Beauty And the Beast By Wendy Mass

This book is very unlike the classic.There is two sides to it.It is not like the orignal. The only thing that is the same is the plot of the story.

Beauty is not the typical person who you expect to be called Beauty. She isn’t really pretty and she isn’t graceful.Her older sister is the one who really should have the name.

Prince Riley is not athletic, commanding, brave and tall like most princes.All he wants to do is play the bagpipes (badly), study the stars and try to figure out how to try make worms live forever.

So when Beauty’s life is turned upside down, she is forced out into the world and has to figure out just who she wants to be.And when Prince Riley grows fur, he has to learn that looks can be deceiving.

Thanks!
