Kindle Children Books Freebie Round Up
Little Squirrel Squish Gets His Christmas Wish - Ross Hammond,Semih Akgul
The Runaway Singing Horse- Children's Picture Book - Debbie Madson
Mariko and the Magic Mirror - Kristi Shimada,Eko Setiawan
Grumpy Dinosaur - Michael Gordon
Dragon's Breath - Michael Gordon
Locks and the Three Bears Rap - Bev Moncrief,Ronny Hardyanto
Brave Benny - Kristen Petersen,Anatasia Teslova
The Christmas Bunny's Wild Adventure - Alma Hammond,Zuzana Svobodova
Arial the Youtuber - Mary Nhin,Jelena Stupar

The best of this bunch are  - Little Squirrel Squish (3.5 stars) about a squirrel who wants to be a reindeer.  The Christmas Bunny (4 stars) about Santa's bunny helper, Brave Benny (3 stars) which is about animals getting ready for winter.  It has the best pictures but I don't understand how a deer pounced joyfully and at times the illustrations were too dark for the word printed over them. 


Arial YouTuber is nice because it has extras that would interest a child, including a recipe and how-to guide. (3 Stars)


Grumpy Dinosaur and Dragon's Breath (3 star) aren't bad but the lesson is a bit heavy handed.


Mariko and the Magic Mirror is a good look at grief and death for children, but feels off because of the use of culture that isn't fully explored or used. (3 stars)


The worst is the Singing Horse (.5 star) which uses stereotypical illustrations of Native Americans.  I mean, living in teepees in the desert bad.

Not Really Book Related

One of my seven year olds has discovered Disney sequels. I don't know if there is enough alcohol to get me through this. 


I came downstairs a little before 7:00 this morning to find she's watching the second Pocahontas movie. You know, the one with the James I who is probably an accurate depiction? Where Pocahontas is a perfect example of British society with enough white paint? 


I think this afternoon, we are going to the library and getting the real story of Pocahontas. It could be the most traumatic thing my children experience. Seriously, other than a means of torture, why was this movie made?

The Squirrel on the Train by Kevin Hearne
Oberon's Meaty Mysteries: The Squirrel on the Train - Kevin Hearne,Kevin Hearne,Luke Daniels

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I am in love with Oberon! It is no secret that I am a dog person. I have three dogs and would probably have more if the county I live in didn't set limits. So I am always drawn to stories involving dogs but Oberon is a special kind of dog and I just love these short pieces that are told completely from his point of view. I think I started smiling as soon as I hit play on this audiobook and didn't quit smiling until it was over because it was just that much fun.

This story starts with Oberon, Orlaith, Starbuck, and Atticus taking a ride on a train. There is a squirrel on the train and the dogs are not happy about it. Once they reach their destination, they run into some bigger problems. There is a dead man that looks just like Atticus. This had me wondering who the real target was and I completely understood why Atticus and Oberon needed to get to the bottom of the mystery.

I thought that the mystery was really well done. It was fairly complex considering this is a pretty short piece. I found myself guessing until the very end and was surprised by a few things that developed along the way. Atticus and the dogs make a wonderful team and I love how much help the dogs were in finding the clues.

Luke Daniels does a fantastic job with this series. I couldn't imagine experiencing this story in any format other than audio. I really love the way he is able to bring Oberon to life and I feel that he is able to capture his canine way of looking at life. He delivers all of the more humorous parts of the story wonderfully as well as the more serious scenes. 

I would recommend this series to others. I do think that readers of the Iron Druid Chronicles will appreciate this tale from Oberons point of view. I think it could also probably work as a stand-alone. I kind of jumped ahead a bit by reading this one now but had no issues keeping up with the story. I can't wait to read more of this wonderful series!

Initial Thoughts
This was fun! I love Oberon so getting an entire story from his point of view is just a delight. I was really intrigued by the mystery in this one and thought it was really well done. Plus now I know that some squirrels really are evil. Luke Daniels does a fantastic job with the narration of this series as always. I couldn't imagine experiencing this story in any other way than audio.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World - Shannon Hale,Vitale Mangiatordi,Dean Hale
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

This one is kind of tricky for me to review. There were things I really liked and things I wasn't such a fan of.

Overall, I think the book was good. I recently read The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Vol. 1: Squirrel Power and loved it because it was super duper awesome. I fell in love with Doreen Green and her amazingness. So I was very excited to see that there was a novelization of her adventures and it was written by none other than Shannon Hale, the author of the Ever After High: Storybook of Legends book series, which I also love.

Then I got this. It wasn't bad, it just didn't reach my exceptions. There were definitely good things. I really liked Ana Sofia's character. I think the authors did a good job of incorporating various aspects of deaf culture into the text (ASL, hearing aids, music, lip reading). I was a little disappointed Ana Sofia could "read lips" like almost every deaf character in mass media, but I think they did a good job showing how it isn't an easy task and not a perfect system. I also thought it was good how Ana Sofia called out misperceptions about deafness in the book. 

But then there were things that were not so cool. For one thing, I was super confused why Tippy-Toe's sections were the only ones in first person. The other sections were in third person. Was Tippy-Toe supposed to be the narrator of the whole thing? I listened to the audiobook and they used different narrators for some of the sections, so even if that were true, it would be super confusing. The footnotes were funny, sometimes annoying and disruptive, but overall they were a good addition that definitely felt like something Squirrel Girl would do.

There were a few times where the narration just did not make sense. Like the whole carjacking scene. How it the world did she open the hood while standing on the hood? I realize she has unbeatable squirrel powers, but I don't think being able to move through solid objects is one of them. And then how did the carjacker keep driving when said hood was up? That scene totally threw me out of the narration because it was so confusing. I had to listen to it again and it still bugged me. 

I also felt that sometimes the book got a little dark. There are dangerous things and fight scenes that happen in the graphic novel, but the cutesy, colorful artwork and hilarious dialogue helped brighten it up. Without the visuals, the book was kind of creepy and weird. Tippy-Toe's sections felt especially gritty. And what was with all of the cute animals in danger? Seriously? Trying to poison dogs and squish squirrels? Are you kidding me? Unnecessarily dark, especially for a Squirrel Girl book. 

So overall, I thought it was good, but some things just didn't seem to ring true for Squirrel Girl. I loved the comic because it was a funny spin on a superhero adventure. This was a decent book, but not one of my favorites.
