Smashwords book reviews by Patti Thompson

  • The Dog Prince on June 06, 2011

    I love The Dog Prince! The story is wholesome fun with great characters and a little satire thrown in for adults. The land of Brink came to life and kept me entertained right to the end. I look forward to reading more tales from Fun London. I think his name is quite appropriate.
  • The Wonderkind on June 06, 2011

    It was a pleasure to discover the universe of the Wonderkind. The author painted a beautiful picture of the creatures and environment in a magical underground world. As I read, the world of the Wonderkind became very real. I loved the waterfall of truth. I wish I could swim there myself! I also enjoyed seeing how the main character changed and grew throughout the story. I want more of the Wonderkind! I hope the author writes more stories of this wonderful place and the interesting characters in it. If you're looking for a fun, fantasy story, I highly recommend The Wonderkind for readers young and old.
  • Lost in the Woods on June 06, 2011

    I loved this story. It's about a young boy who works through some difficult issues when he travels to an unusual place and meets some very interesting forest animals. It's got all the elements of a good story -- humor, adventure, life lessons and some touching moments involving loved ones. There is no violence. The ending is great and made me cry. I work with children of various ages and recommend it highly to children from age 8 to 12. However, it's one of those uplifting and entertaining stories that is great for all ages.
  • Hangtime on Aug. 20, 2011

    I loved this story. The author drew me in to Dr. Laslo's world and I found myself intrigued by his invention and rooting for him to win. This story is entertaining and well-paced. It is well-written and suspenseful with a nice twist at the end. There is even a bit of romance. I highly recommend it.
  • The Companion on Aug. 20, 2011

    This is a great short story. It's got a good pace, interesting characters and a surprise ending. I think it would have been great as one of the original Star Trek episodes. I really like Ax Weller. I'm ready for more of his tales!
  • Funtastic Bedtime Stories on Dec. 24, 2012

    Reading these stories, I was just as entertained as my children. Lost in the Woods is written in Lewis Carroll style. Jack finds his way home and learns a few lessons on the way with the help of a very funny talking squirrel. The Dog Prince and Dog Princess are heart-warming tales about the adventures of a young boy and his faithful companion. The Wonderkind tells the story of fantastic creatures living in a magical underground world. I highly recommend this book for readers of all ages!
