Over on Facebook we are trying out a special Halloween Children’s Book Event sharing Halloween Treats much better than sweets. Sadly the Facebook layout has changed and we don’t know if it is going to work in our favour. We are currently unable to schedule posts. However, we will do our very best to share some of our favourite reads suitable for this wonderful season of ‘Trick or Treating’.

#NewRelease ‘Fantasy Snowflakes’

‘Fantasy Snowflakes Coloring Book’

By J.S. Burke

Another delightful colouring book of Fantasy Snowflakes has been created by the very talented J.S. Burke and we love it as much as the first one. Here is the blurb:

De-stress and unwind with hand-drawn mandalas. These original snowflake designs are created from animals and plants. Color 24 pictures and 24 ornaments. Let your imagination soar!

Drawings range from simple to detailed. Designs include Dragons, Narwhals, Bunnies, Horses, Owls, Flower Fairies, Mermaids, Octopus, Bird-of-Paradise, and more. Learn to fold and cut out lacy paper snowflakes to hang as unique decorations.

The Fantasy Snowflakes coloring/activities books are inspired by the award-winning “Dragon Dreamer” series: Science Fantasy with dragons and an undersea world.

Goodreads Book Review

Fantasy Snowflakes Coloring Book II

Fantasy Snowflakes Coloring Book II by J.S. Burke
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book 109 of my Goodreads Challenge 2020

Another fantastical delight to help you un-wind with beautiful fantasy snowflakes created from animals and plants. Also inspired by the ‘Dragon Dreamer Series’ 

In the coloring book each magical flake has a brief description below with some fact and fantasy words for you to enjoy. Did you know for example that an octopus has nine hearts – one in each of its arms. This is a truly therapeutic book for all ages.

If you have not read ‘The Dragon Dreamer Series’ like these beautiful Fantasy Snowflake Books they are all. Very Highly Recommended.

About the Author

J. S. Burke is an author, artist, chemist, and marine biologist, studying creatures of the dark abyss and diving on coral reefs. She lives in Georgia with her family and rescue pets.

It’s immense fun to write novels that blend imagination with real science and author experiences. Living on a ship far from shore, J. S. Burke traveled in a circle of blue and learned to walk with the sea. The Dragon Dreamer series is science fantasy adventure with flying dragons, an undersea world, and unexpected friendship. The deadly sea storm that threatens the young dragon Arak, in The Dragon Dreamer, is one that the author survived.

Very Highly Recommended

#ShareAStory ‘Olly The Top Security Dog’

Olly : The Top Security Dog

By Chris Turnbull & Illustrated by Izzy Bean

Goodreads Book Review

Olly : The Top Security Dog (Olly The Jack Series Book 1)Olly : The Top Security Dog by Chris Turnbull
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

No rest for a Jack on a mission.

Olly is no slouch, he takes his job very seriously. When things go missing around his home he is soon out on the trail. He’s a quick little Jack and wastes no time hunting high and low.

He runs round the neighbourhood interviewing all his doggy pals. He even tracks down the cat in the pub.

This is a delightful, rythmical read with beautiful bright illustrations. A real treat for the young and those simply young at heart like me. Dog lovers check it out. Very highly recommended.

If you’ve not checked out Emy’s story based on true events, I would recommend this too.
