Brown Rabbit in the City by Natalie Russell

Brown Rabbit in the CityBrown 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

Perfect SquarePerfect 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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.

The Name of This Book is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch

The Name of This Book Is Secret (Secret, #1)The Name of This Book Is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this narrator-heavy books! I found the first couple of chapters a little frustrating as they are SO exposition-heavy, but Bosch’s use of writing conventions as plot catalysts is so much fun! The mystery is mysterious and I am excited to not learn more about the secret.

Good read!

Ralph Tells a Story by Abby Hanlon

Ralph Tells a StoryRalph Tells a Story by Abby Hanlon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The sketchy, child-like illustrations are dynamic rendered in watercolor and colored pencil. Ralph has a hard time telling his story, until he realizes that a story is just something that happened! Complete with “Writing Tips from Ralph” and plenty of white space to let the vignettes breathe, this book is fun, well-written and worth your time.
