I love books.

The Real Boy

The Real Boy - Erin Mcguire, Anne Ursu I spent a lot of this book wishing I had even a quarter of Anne Ursu's imagination and talent for writing. I flat out loved the language, the kitties, the main characters, and the magic.

Sometimes kids books are kind of preachy, you know, the ones that are supposed to be "good for you" and make you learn something (whether you want to or not...) -- yes, there are some things to think about: greed and differences and poverty, to name a few, but I didn't feel like I was reading a book with a "message" so much as I was ready a beautiful written story that made me care about the characters and situations and left me with themes to ponder now that I'm sitting back and reflecting.
