bookmania!






Last Saturday, I was at Chicago Public Library's Bookmania event. There was a lot of books and a lot of mania, let me tell you. There was an incredible list of events going on, including meeting character Frog and Toad and a Golden Books Art exhibit. But I didn't get to see any of it because it was so busy where I was situated, at the THANKING THE MOON booth.

Not only was it incredibly busy, it was a lot of fun. My booth had the bunny lantern craft available for all to the kids to do:

which they made beautifully:


There were even glowsticks for everyone, so the lanterns glowed at night!

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

This review is from: The Seventh Wish (Kindle Edition)
Do you believe in Leprechaun and Trolls, magic and wishes that come true. In The 7th Wish Julian has worked with his grandfather at the Clover Track Stables and helped raise Winnie's Wish. He was at the race track when she won the race and threw a shoe. Running to grab the shoe another hand grabbed at it also. Only the hand belonged to a Leprechaun. Both claimed the horseshoe and were transported to the Leprechaun council. The sentence: Julian and Lawrence had to travel the country and grant six selfish wishes to complete strangers. There is one problem in all of this. The Trolls managed to capture the platinum horse shoe and were trying to get their hands on the golden shoe. Can Julian and Lawrence travel the country and get the wishes granted in a week and still manage to elude the elusive Trolls or will they be deceived and lose the golden horse shoe.

This is quite an interesting fantasy; it has a bit of humor woven into the story. Middle school and high school students will enjoy the plot. There is a message of good versus evil in the plot. The characters were humorous and delightful. I enjoyed this story.

Noticed that you ( Alvina also) didn't post your name
on your most recent post until the very end. Does anyone else besides me prefer to know right away who's posting? I find myself scrolling all the way to the end to see the name before even reading the post.
