So happy that Chris Goguen’s beautiful artwork gets attention too! He is such a talent. It is great to know that I had the privilege to work with him.

What a riveting tale is found in Pell Shade’s story! It is a must for elementary age, tween and young adult homes. It will receive their parents’ and teachers’ complete approval. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the most interesting plot I have seen in a long time. It has a refreshing new concept, one that will be loved by many readers as they discover this new well-written series.
Aunt Syne is looking for a gift for her niece Pell. She wants something special and finds it in the “Rare Find Store.” The owner doesn’t want to be paid, and he knows exactly what she needs. When she gives it to her niece, the girl isn’t very impressed. The gift only consists of origami paper and a thick, probably very boring, instruction book. Everything changes when Aunt Syne makes a bird with it, and the creation starts flying. Well, all is swell and fantastic until a very disagreeable man wants Syne to give him the stack of paper. He says the papers belong to him and he won’t give up until he gets what is his back. More problems arise when the man kidnaps one of the two heroines and wants to exchange the papers for the person in his hands. Their only hope lies with two unlikely friends they find in kids that have nothing but each other.
This tale is quite unique and will be very compelling to many readers. I know you will love it, as I did. It is, without a doubt, a page-turner. I can’t wait for the next piece in the series. Well done.
The following are optional personal comments from the reviewer that will NOT appear in your review:
I am without a doubt utterly, inexplicably pumped! Can’t tell you how much this makes all those times that I’ve fallen into the deepest, darkest abyss worth while. I may crawl my way out of it, but I’m always battered and worn–this makes all those times far worth it. To know that I connected with a reader and they enjoyed my characters and my tale is happiness.
