Mac-Adventures (with books!)
Reading an eclectic mix of books,
some years old, rarely prizewinners,
sometimes on bestseller lists
but more than likely not:
but the ones I like I'll tell you about..........
if you read them,let me know!
You may also find Gardening here,
Home and Furniture makeovers;
sometimes Food, Travel tales.....
but mostly, Books.
It is just something I sometimes do..... pick a children's book. Child at heart, I suppose! This was a little gem, so glad I saw it in a review of children's books for the Easter Holidays. Hermelin is a white mouse, who lives in an attic, sleeps in an empty cheese box (which by the way smells delicious) and discovers he is good at solving crimes. I love mice detectives.... early in my blogging career I wrote several chapters of a story (and perhaps I should revisit that and publish it now that e-publishing is available!). Anyway, back to Hermelin..... He finds a priceless bracelet, a missing child, a handbag, a teddy bear and a few other things. The joy is in the illustrations, which I think are by Mini Grey too, as I see no detail of an illustrator between the covers. I read it twice, discovering things the second time I had missed the first, and if reading aloud with a child this would happen for the child and the reader too, I think. Well done Mini Grey! I loved Hermelin and I think all read-aloud parents and grandparents will feel the same. Probably aimed at around 3 to 6 years but on the other hand, look how old I am!
