Brown Rabbit in the City by Natalie Russell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rendered in what seems like a combination of ink and digital coloring, this book describes exactly a visit to a friend who lives in a city. It is sweet and fast and the muted, soft colors and designs are visually appealing. I really enjoyed this book and I will enjoy sharing it with others.

Zoo Ah-Chooo by Peter Mandel

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

If you are going to use rhymes, make it consistent. The random slant and near rhymes mixed with only some perfect rhymes is unappealing. It’s too bad, the idea is fun and illustrations not bad.

Perfect Square by Michael Hall

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This introduction to the square and its possibilities is a great storytime book. Not only are there colors to identify, but this book offers a slew of companion crafts and introduction to shapes. Bright, old and colorful.

This is…adorable. There is no better word. Baby as an office tycoon is the best ongoing analogy ever. I highly recommend this title. It has dynamic and fun illustrations. And really. It is just fun.

The Unnaturalist by Tiffany Trent

The Unnaturalists (The Unnaturalists, #1)The Unnaturalists by Tiffany Trent
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this Steampunk YA treat. Set in an alternate world created by a Tesla experiment, this world runs on “Myth” to power everything. Their religion is the science of Newton and Tesla, yet there is magic in this world. Full of propriety, feminism, industry and magic, this series is worth following.
