- Sam, the Strawb Part
on Oct. 18, 2011
This was a beautifully written children’s book. Loved the story and can really see the children getting into it. Their imaginations are fantastic and I am sure there will be a lot of children pretending to be Sam, the Strawb Part.
Sam is a young boy whom loves strawberries and uses his wits and cunning to steal strawberries from unsuspecting mothers at the grocery store. Because of his appearance they feel for Sam and hand over their strawberries. The East Canada Fruit (Fool) Company is not impressed and hires a pirate to capture and stop Sam from stealing all the strawberries. This is where the adventure begins. The chase sets off around the country and Sam is always one step ahead.
This is Robin Hood meets Pirates of the Caribbean for a children’s book. Fantastic and another fantastic fact is that all proceeds of this book goes to charity, Children at Risk, a registered charity that supports families of children with autism spectrum disorders. What a wonderful cause, so please help support and read this lovely story.
- Immortal Beloved (Book Two of The Knight Trilogy)
on Dec. 15, 2011
Oh My Goodness this book is awesome. This book has it all; it’s a young adult romance with fantasy included, oh so good!
Number two in the trilogy and it is perfectly awesome. Follows on from number one and leaves it open for number three. Mina is still coming to terms with losing her best friend and her boyfriend. She is struggling through her daily life and has made a new friend in Delta. Delta is helping her cope and giving her a new reason to live. Mina and her mother still don’t seem to be able to mend their broken relationship and this doesn’t help Mina to break her zombie like routine.
Mina discovers the book Blake gave her under her mattress. She is crying and opens the book; her tears splash down on the pages and images appear. Mina doesn’t know if the images are real, but what appears isn’t something that you can imagine. Mina receives a visit from a friend of Blake’s, confirming the vision she saw. Everything goes wrong from this point on. Mina loses the plot and proves how much she truly loves Blake. With her love proven, she is told she must travel to Egypt to rescue Blake using her love.
Travelling to Egypt with her best friend Delta and her ex-boyfriend Sam, they undertake the toughest scavenger hunt of their lives. In order to save Blake they must find the temple of Osiris.
This was awesome; I am at a loss for words at how much I loved this book. Katie M John has the most amazing way of writing this adventure that you can’t help but be drawn in. The characters evolve with each chapter and Mina discovers how deep love can truly go. This series is truly one of my favourites and I cannot wait for number three. Highly recommend to all young adult readers.
