Like most other readers, I was drawn to this little book by the format: an accordion book with the same story from two different perspectives printed on either side of the pages, so that you can start from either direction and get a different version. How cool is that? Answer: very cool. The story...

Everyone's favorite redhead, the spunky Anne Shirley, begins her adventures at Green Gables, a farm outside Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. When the freckled girl realizes that the elderly Cuthberts wanted to adopt a boy instead, she begins to try to win them and, consequently, the reader, over. *...

I was expecting more illustrations & to understand the book. I may be dense. I had a hard time understanding the logic of quite a bit. However; I have never read the story before & watched the new movie 1st. My opinion could be tainted as I understood the movie.

One cannot discuss The Thorn and the Blossom and not discuss the book’s format. Reading it takes some adjustments, as without a traditional spine, it is all too easy to let the book open up completely, exposing all of its accordion pages. Once a reader gets the hang of holding the book and reading i...

Originally posted at Paperback Wonderland.Never judge a book by its cover. I already knew this and yet, here I am.This is, quite easily, one of the prettiest books I own. The book itself, as an object, is worth a whole star (perhaps even more...).Now the story...First of all, and this is important, ...

It can be a bit weird going in to classics you've never read before as an adult. I'm familiar with the tale of course. There used to be this incredible cartoon series when I was younger that played both in English and in French. ''Alice...in wonderland'' or ''Alice...au pays des merveilles'' and...
