The Empress' New Gowns
by Gita V.Reddy
The empress was in high glee. For years her illustrous husband had disparaged her female pea-sized brain, never letting her complete a sentence or do anything without his consent. After he was literally ripped off by the two wily tailors, the empress sets out to prove she is smarter than him.
This is a spin-off of the popular folk tale, The Emperor's New Clothes.
by Gita V.Reddy
Monty lives in a pond with his family and friends. He loves to hop, leap, and jump. Everyone calls him Leapfrog. One day, Monty takes a long leap and lands on the road. He is delighted and continues onwards, singing and hopping. But not for long....
Super-Duper Monty is a wonderful book for kids, with bright pictures and an engrossing story.
The Alphabet Game (an Interactive ABC Book for Kids)
by Gita V.Reddy
The Alphabet Game combines technology with the traditional way of teaching. The child learns to recognize letters by looking for them in a word. Rather than repeating the letters in the same order, which can become monotonous, this book encourages the child to think, and to participate.
However, this ebook can also be used as a regular alphabet reader.
The Missing Girl
by Gita V.Reddy
Read The Missing Girl and discover learning can be fun!
From the book:.
"Oh no!" exclaimed the man, throwing up his hands in horror. "Child, don't make that mistake. Science is science. Don't put it into compartments. And even if you have to put it into compartments, don't choose between the compartments,"

- Knowsley's Young Author

The book is amazing. The (very) young writers have turned out great stories. Congratulations to the children, parents, and of course to the teachers too.

Sweet, simple, effective.

Even a witchlet, an apt word to define a nine year old witch, needs to be her own person. She needs acceptance, and unconditional love.
The story is told well and does not at all flow along expected lines. i found it very enjoyable. The book will also work as a bedtime read aloud story..
- The Pineapple Loving Dragon
on May 17, 2014
The dragon who loves pineapples (because he doesn't like killing) has to have other admirable qualities. How about rescuing orphans with love and warmth, and teaching a powerful witch the power of restraint?
Delightful and smart, I have to give the book (and the dragon) five stars.
- A Magical Storm
on May 24, 2014
The Magic Storm is the third book in Victoria Zigler’s Magic Trilogy.
Paige (the witchlet and central to the trilogy) is older and more powerful and her friend Daisy, the vegetarian dragon, can certainly spew fire for a friend in need.
As magical and captivating as the first two books, ‘The Magic Storm’ packs in a lot of action, emotion, and …MAGIC!
The issue of 'accepting differences' was raised in the earlier two books. It continues in this one with Paige thinking, "Weren't parents supposed to love their children no matter what?"
- Jinx And The Faerie Dragons
on July 13, 2014
Starting with the book cover, it is eye catching and totally apt. The story is quite interesting. Pixies and goblins usually make for interesting characters and here we also have faerie dragons. The pixies, Jinx and Ayla, are siblings; Jinx is mischievous, Ayla is responsible and though often at the receiving end of her brother’s pranks, tries to keep him from getting into trouble. Draco and Caia, faerie dragons, beautifully described by Ms Zigler, who share Jinx’ love of mischief , befriend him, and all of them recklessly plunge into a dangerous adventure. Things turn very bad for them with nasty goblins and the author keeps up the suspense until Jinx and his friends are safe…..until the next adventure.
I liked the story and the very vivid descriptions. I will not be surprised to learn that Ms Zigler has tea with pixies and other such creatures on a regular basis because she seems to know them very well. Recommended.
I received a free copy of this book for review.
- Doofus, Dog of Doom
on Aug. 26, 2014
I enjoyed reading Doofus, the Dog of Doom. It is a mix of legend and fantasy. All the characters are well drawn, and have adorable quirks and strengths.
The momentum of the story builds up from the strange dog that howls to dangerous creatures like wolves and big cats, which are far from ordinary.
The writing is very good, occasionally philosophical, and poetic.
For instance, 'When she reached the waterfall there was nobody there but the water, although that seemed like a person in itself, busily talking to her in a liquid language that she felt she ought to know.'
But these do not affect the pace of the story, they are just interesting asides, as the story progresses to a satisfactory end.
- Toby's New World
on Aug. 09, 2015
Toby’s old world, the one in which he could see, is gone. He has glaucoma, the kind which cannot be treated, and will remain blind. His mother tells him he will be okay, his father tells him he will be okay but Toby is upset and angry. How can things be okay when he is not able to eat without covering himself and his stuffed bear with food? How can things be okay when he cannot find his clothes or his toothbrush? How can things be okay when his brother and sister laugh at him blundering about?
Toby’s New World is a very short book but gets to the root of a difficult subject: how do parents and children handle a situation wherein illness changes a child’s world. Do they smother him with love? Protect him? Challenge him? The answer is amazingly simple.
This story touched my heart. I recommend it to parents and children alike.
