Nice little book about chickens
Once Upon a Flock: Life with My Soulful Chickens - Lauren Scheuer

picked this up last year when it was offered for free. I mostly picked it up because I loved Sy Montgomery's work.

While Scheuer may not be as a good writer as Montgomery, this is an enjoyable, quick read about a woman who tends to chickens. While you might wonder if the family is a bit sudden or flighty in its new interest, they do seem to step up to the plate.

The book is fun because of the artwork and photos that are included as well as the fact that Scheuer seems able to laugh at herself.

Enjoyable.

This isn't book-related at all. I just came across it and was left speechless for a bit, so now I need to share it. Sometime later today I may get sucked into an "ultimate epic battle simulator" black hole.

Hollow City
Hollow City - Ransom Riggs

This was a pretty faced paced book. I read through it a lot quicker than the first book but I liked the first one better. This one didn't have the dry humor of the first. I missed that.  

 

I usually only read realistic fiction (mostly mysteries) so this story is a stretch for me. The hollows sound so scary!  Omg, long slimy tongues covered in suction cups?! I love the dog in the book though and wish I could have him. IThe menagerie cracked me up and that was a nice balance to the scarier parts. I'm afraid of chickens now too. The ending really threw me for a loop though (pun intended).

 

At the end of the first book, the Peculiar Children rescued Miss Paragrin but she couldn't change back into human form. She had a broken wing and needed care only another ymbryne could give. They had to hurry because the longer she stayed a bird the worse her chances were that she would never be able to become human again. They all set off in boats for the mainland in search of the last ymbryne. They ended up in London where they evaded Hollows and dodged bombs in their search. They found a few other Peculiar Children from other raided loops and Jacob learned more about his talent.

With this cute and colourful picture book, anytime is a good time to count your chickens! There is so much fun depicted on each page, with adorable characters to discover, is it is quite easy to engage a child while reading and allow their imagination to roam free. Counting fun at it's best.


I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

THE LEGEND OF DIAMOND LIL by Doreen Cronin
The Legend of Diamond Lil: A J.J. Tully Mystery (J. J. Tully Mysteries) - Doreen Cronin,Kevin Cornell

Diamond Lil comes to live next door to J.J. Tully but she comes with a secret.  While the two of them strike up a friendship it seems as though J.j. is right not to trust her.  When he finds out her secret he realizes the danger they were all in.

 

I love this series.  Vincent the Funnel turns informant this time around.  Lil is not what she seems.  The chicks are as wild as ever and Mama Chicken is, indeed, a broody hen.  I loved the story.

 

I hope more stories about J. J. Tully are coming.  I just love the 1940's gumshoe style.
