Review by: Aimee Higgins on June 19, 2013 :
I enjoyed both of these sassy stories about two strong women who are full of character and wit. They are happy and confident despite their seemingly quirky ways, age and potential limitations. Linda Talbot's upbeat humor, descriptive scenes and imaginative plots ensure an enjoyable read for the young and the young at heart. I recommend this this double feature of action and adventure.

Review by: Michael Puttonen on May 13, 2013 :
Loved the first story. To me, the second had a somewhat weaker plot, though the writing for both was terrific. Found myself chuckling time and again over the author's wit, which is generously displayed in numerous passages. Excellent flow to the narrative, and the pleasant illustrations captured selected scenes well. Overall, a satisfying read. Children should find these stories enjoyable.
