Welcome to the Book Review Pages.

Welcome again to the book reviews here at

Maybe I look at home among books. I'll just be browsing through the kids' section of my local bookstore, hoping for a new book by a favorite author or maybe someone entirely new to discover. Next thing I know, a voice will ask, "Excuse me, I'm looking for a book about some boys who time travel and have crazy adventures," or "Do you know anything about a sequel to The Wind in the Willows?" I don't always know the answer, but surprisingly often I can help and that makes me feel good. Who knows - maybe you'll remember one of the reviews here but forget the title . . . and you'll walk up to a person in the bookstore or library and say, "I'm looking for a book series about a girl named . . . Amber?" Enjoy!
