Book Review of Flower Net, by Lisa See

I'm sorry everyone, but I feel like all my reviews have been negative as of lately. This one is no different, and that's why I'm going to read something this month that I know I already love. Enough about my, "woe is me" act. All that matters is that Flower Net became (quickly) boring to me. So without further adieu - a review! ...more

What Makes Amazing Children’s Illustrations?: An Editor’s Perspective

There’s little more enchanting than a beautifully illustrated children’s book. Abigail Samoun, co-founder of Red Fox Literary and featured mom has a roster full of amazing illustrators.

Maybe it’s the wintery darkness they all seem to have, maybe I’m still into this genre since finishing The Girl on the Train. But if it were up to me, and I had a book club, I would want it to be mystery themed. We could have Sherlock Holmes hats and pipes and pretend to be in London while we discussed the books. HOW FUN WOULD THAT BE THOUGH, REALLY? Okay. Anyway. These are the ten books I would suggest we read!...more
