Polly Diamond and the Magic Book written by Alice Kuipers and illustrated by Diana Toledano
Polly Diamond and the Magic Book: Book 1... Polly Diamond and the Magic Book: Book 1 - Alice Kuipers,Diana Toledano
Polly Diamond and the Magic Book written by Alice Kuipers and illustrated by Diana Toledano is a children's book written for ages four to eight years.
Polly loves words and writing stories and lists. She believes amazing things happen in threes. Her mother is expecting another baby, so her three-year-old sister, Anna (the sparkle princess) moved into Polly's room. She's not happy about it.
Her father is a contractor and always has a project going in the house. Polly's new magic book allows her to make things happen that she writes. She's imaginative and creative. It is a fun story to read. I gave it five stars.
I received an Advanced Reading Copy from Chronicle Books and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.
It is in pre-order status until May 18, 2018 so I could not leave a review on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Plastic Polly, Jenny Lundquist
Plastic Polly - Jenny Lundquist

While this middle school story didn't pull me in like the last of this author's I read, it's a topic more geared to teenagers who may find it helpful. I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4* rating. The topic of being in the popular group, which I didn't worry about too much in school, is somewhat tied in with bullying these days. School has changed so much since I have been in.

On A Hoof And A Prayer: Around Argentina At A Gallop - Polly Evans

This is meh book. It isn't bad; there just seems to be not much there. Evans seems like a perfectly fun person, but this travel book is like listening to someone's vacation stories where nothing much happens. It's strange too, at least some of the structure because despite the inclusion of horses, it is not a horse lover's book that much.

The Book of Polly
The Book of Polly - Kathy Hepinstall The Book of Polly - Kathy Hepinstall I just love Southern novels with a sense of cham and humour and in my my mind I was sitting out on the back porch, sipping Ice tea while the fireflys kept me company on a balmy evening in June Reality was a wet Bank holiday Monday in June and the chance to sit outside would be luxury in Ireland, but through reading one can be any where any time and for this book my head was in the deep American South.

I have previously read [b:Blue Asylum|12331596|Blue Asylum|Kathy Hepinstall|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1324673247s/12331596.jpg|17310610][bc:Blue Asylum|12331596|Blue Asylum|Kathy Hepinstall|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1324673247s/12331596.jpg|17310610] by Kathy Hepinstall and thoroughly enjoyed it and was so happy to read [b:The Book of Polly|30763908|The Book of Polly|Kathy Hepinstall|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1471279606s/30763908.jpg|51320025]and it really didn't disappoint as the writting and characters just ooze that southern charm that makes me want to pack a bag and hop on a plane.

I simply adored the characters in this book and the lines were just fabulous with so much wit and humour and charm that I laughed out loud many times. I fell head over heels in love with Polly and her no nonsense attitude and Willow and the other characters were equally as interesting and charming. There is a serious side to the story when the " Bear" becomes a reality in the lives of Polly and Willow but the author has a way with words that keeps this book fresh and fun.

This isn't the sort of book that keeps you on the edge of your seat but its a beautiful story, well written and full of witty lines with tons of southern charm. Its the sort of feel good book that keeps you turning the pages because you have fallen for the characters and care about what becomes of them.

Really enjoyed this book and recommend it to readers who have enjoy southern fiction or just want a feel good summer read to transport them to someplace else.

Down the Back of the Chair - Margaret Mahy,Polly Dunbar
Down the Back of the Chair - Margaret Mahy,Polly Dunbar

   Super silly picture book wherein the father keeps pulling increasingly less probably items from under the seat cushion of a comfy chair. The archetypal comfy chair. The one I've become obsessed with. Now in addition to passing time looking at gorgeous home libraries on Pinterest, I've taken to looking for chairs closest to this ideal. I haven't found one yet. But now I have another ridiculously pointless quest to amuse my idle moments.
