Review:
Lyra's life is already sufficiently interesting for a novel before she eavesdrops on a presentation by her uncle Lord Asriel to his colleagues in the Jordan College faculty, Oxford. The college, famed for its leadership in experimental theology, is funding Lord Asriel's research into the heretical possibility of the existence of worlds unlike Lyra's own, where everyone is born with a familiar animal companion, magic of a kind works, the Tartars are threatening to overrun Muscovy, and the Pope is a puritanical Protestant. Set in an England familiar and strange, Philip Pullman's lively, tau... Rest of this review on the detail page

Review:
Excellent book, my favorite part is when Matilda puts crazy glue in his father's hat. Roald Dahl is one of my favorite authors, I wish I could meet him in person to ask him how he writes such good books. My brother loves the BFG and The Witches, he is 9 I am 7.

Review:
What the Cat Knows By Brent R. Schofield Review by Joan Moore Lewis, author of southern fiction Perfect Gift for first-time cat owner Have you ever noticed the strange actions of a cat? I have noticed how friends� cats would entertain me for a while by running, jumping, attacking the drapes, and wrestling with an invisible opponent on the floor before slinking off to another room. Upon their return, they would act calm, cool and collected. Now I understand why. When Andy and Carol take the abandoned Cupcake into their home, they are in for a number of surprises. It is fun to see Cupcake, the playful kitten, get tangled in wallpaper and glue while �helping� Andy decorate the new baby�s room. ... Rest of this review on the detail page
