Smashwords book reviews by Tag Cavello

  • Storm Warning on May 01, 2017

    I love the whimsy in this tale. Breezy games under the table during a storm. Windy days are always my favorite, so I was happy to read Storm Warning. Thank you for the upload!
  • Harmony's Magic Pyjamas on May 05, 2017

    A lovely story with the prettiest illustrations. As with her story Storm Warning, Angela Hope captures an atmosphere and a whimsy that all readers of children's stories will love.
  • The Doll With Odd Eyes on May 15, 2017

    Another pretty story from this author, who always seems to have such great ideas. Read about "Betty" to your children. My daughters and I loved it.
  • Gnaw: The Hour Of Insomnia on May 22, 2017

    Lips On Lips, Pizza, and Branded were my favorites from this very passionate collection out of India. Lovely work, Miss Kahlo!
  • Newcomer: Chapter 1- A Serial Flash Fiction Novel on May 29, 2017

    Flash fiction--a neat idea, and the author certainly gets off to an intriguing start with Newcomer. I'll be moving directly to part two.
  • Charlotte Brown's Patchwork Quilt on March 15, 2018

    A terrific and well executed idea. Sad memories, happy memories, swirling in a fog of time. Very moving. I loved it.
  • Cosmic Valentine Mama on March 27, 2018

    This is a funny man. Clever and funny. Read for yourself if you don't believe.
  • My One Legged Friend on June 23, 2018

    As a person who regularly feeds stray cats and dogs from his porch, this story resonated with me. Yes, to be kind to strays makes you very popular with them, and can get you into trouble sometimes. But since when has doing the right thing ever been easy?
  • Kind Jack on Sep. 22, 2018

    Another fine bedtime story from Angela Hope!
