Touching and very sweet

What a beautiful and sweet story about a unicorn and a fairy who meet and become friends. They then befriend a dragon and a marvelous thing happens.The illustrations is beautiful. L. P. Dover is one of my all time favorite authors. And now we can enjoy her beautiful daughter Anna -Grace.

Moonlight and Aleena: A Tale of Two Friends is a children's book that romance author L. P. Dover wrote with her young daughter, Anna-Grace. This book is full of magic and imagination. It is not my usual genre to review, but I am a mom of five kids so I do read a lot of children's books with them. When I got the chance to review this book, I thought that it would be a fun book to read with my two youngest children and get their opinions. My two youngest kids are Nick, age six, and Maggie, age fou ...more

Unicorns, fairies, and Dragons what more could you ask for out of a kid's book? This book has a base of different and unlikely characters becoming friends in search of an adventure and some answers.

I loved reading this with my kids! They gasped and shrieked with surprise and excitement. There is nothing that warms a momma's heart more than reading with her kids and watching them get excited about the story and reading!

Each kid told me what they like and I did my best to quote them below with a

Reviewed by my six-year-old niece, Brayden!

I thought that this book was fantastic and liked the storyline and what happened in it! My favourite scene was when the characters became friends! I loved that there was a unicorn (Moonlight), fairies (Aleena) and a dragon (Zippy) in it too! I read this story to my aunt and it only took us about 50 minutes, so it's good read that other children my age will enjoy and have fun reading! The pictures were also very good and I loved them! I'm looking forward

I was lucky enough to receive signed copies of Moonlight & Aleena's first adventure. I've been a lifelong unicorn fan, so when I learned L.P. and Anna were writing a picture book, I knew I had to have this in my library. It did not disappoint. Moonlight is the last unicorn, that she knows of. All she wants is to find the rest of her kind. In her quest to find other magical creatures, she meets Aleena and the fairies, who would love to let her stay. Only there's a big problem. The local dragon ke ...more

Moonlight and Aleena is such a magical tale of finding friendship in places you don’t expect. What makes it even better, is that it’s 100% illustrated. I loved the light-hearted and beautiful story of these two friends! I can’t wait to share it with my own kids when the time comes.

This story is beyond adorable! The storyline itself is sweet. The illustrations are so bright and colorful. My daughter personally was obsessed with Moonlight and how pretty she is. This was on the easier side of reading for my daughter. We were ok with that.

The moral of the story that being different is special is a really important especially for children. I also like that they go over that you should face your fears/problems head on instead of hiding/ignoring them. It was a pleasure to read

My 7 Year old daughter was so excited when I told her about this book, that she could read and review a book like Mummy. We read this book together and we both loved the story and illustrations. it gripped us from the very beginning and kept us captivated until the very end and left us excited for the next book. I remember reading books like this was I was younger and loving them and the way the sparked my imagination. It's nice being able to read them with my princess.

Moonlight and Aleena is a cute read. I got this one to read to my 13 year daughter. She's special needs and non verbal but she loves books. The grade range listed on Amazon for this book is Pre K to grade 4. That's kind of a big range and my little one falls in the pre k to kindergarten range so I did a read through first. It's a cute story about acceptance and friendship. I was a little worried that some of the pages had too many words and she might get bored but that wasn't the case. When we s ...more

I read Moonlight And Aleena: A Tale Of Two Friends, with my son (7) , and my nephews (1,& 3).
My son really enjoyed this book. His favorite part was the dragon Zippy. As soon as the book ended he asked for the next one which is very shocking. My son doesn't like reading even if it is being read to him. Him asking for more is a huge compliment 😁.

My nephews aren't really into books but they loved looking at the pictures!

I can't wait to read more of L.P. Dover and her daughter, Anna-Grace Dover!

I read Moonlight and Aleena with my 8-year-old daughter. She's a huge unicorn lover so this fit her well. To me, this book was well written and caught readers' attention quickly. I loved how the basic premise of the book is showing how completely different animals (people) can be friends. It was heartwarming to read. My daughter loved the pictures and she said that the characters were beautiful inside and out. She obviously loved the unicorn, but she fell in love with the dragon as well. She can ...more

Such a lovely read. My daughter helped me read this as part of her 15 minutes a night reading. She was fully engulfed in the story and wants to give it more then 5 stars. Moonlight of course is her favorite since she is so in love with Unicorns right now. Moonlight and Aleena: A Tale of Two Friends is such a fantastic children's book. It brings to life that no matter how different you are you can be friends. I love the friendship between Moonlight and Aleena. It is so sweet. We really can't wait ...more

My 8 year old daughter, Madison, and I read this charming book together. We really enjoyed both the story and the gorgeous illustrations. The story was sweet and fun, my daughter loves all things unicorn and couldn’t get over how cute Moonlight was. Her favorite part was at the end when Moonlight an Aleena are looking at the stars and discussing their next adventure. This is definitely a book we’ll want in paper, she is SO EXCITED for the next adventure for Moonlight and Aleena in the Snowy Fore ...more

Moonlight and Aleena: A Tale of Two Friends by L.P. Dover & Anna-Grace Dover is Reviewed by myself and my six year old daughter Willow.

I love that i get share and experience my enjoyment in reading, with my children. I thought this story was well written for Willow's age range and older. And loved how beautiful it was illustrated along with a wonderful story.

Unicorns, fairies, and Dragons what more could you ask for from a children's story book? But this wasn't just a small read it really packed
