This is the most charming tale I have read in a while. A master author writes it beautifully. The story moves flawlessly from beginning to end.

One day when they are coming back from the market, where they sell all their vegetables, which they steal from others, they have the scare of their life. A woman that seems to be from another dimension a

When I received this book in the mail I was immediately drawn to it. It looked like a fun book to read. Well, my intuition was right and I loved this book!

This is the story about a young girl named Root. She was brought to our world by someone from another and had to live with two grotesque women named Carblotta and Octavia. They reminded me of the aunts in JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH by Roald Dahl. Well, these aunts wanted Root to be their servant g

I received this book for free from the publisher. All content and opinions are my own.

The Questory of Root Karbunkulus, Reid’s first novel, is a delightful YA fantasy book (with an awesome website). Anyways, we first meet Root, our hero, living in a halfhouse (a house split in half) with two horrid aunts that definitely bare a resemblance to the horrid aunts of James and the Giant Peach fame. As the book opens, fourteen-year-old Root finds that she is not related to the aunts (whew!) and is actu

This book takes you on a fun and exciting adventure with well-developed characters that you come to love and want to see succeed. The level of imagination by this author rivals JR Rowling as every page was a new discovery of magical whimsy and delight. Loved it!

Kamilla was raised in a rambunctious family of siblings, all raised by a feisty redheaded mother with twinkling eyes and killer patience. It wasn't long before Kamilla earned the title of 'weirdo' at school but it would be many years before she discovered this wasn't necessarily a bad thing. There were, as it turned out many like-minded weirdos in the theatre. And theatre, according to by-now-twen ...more
