The Smoke Thief by Shana Abe
The Smoke Thief

libraryelf, April 26, 2008

After reading Dream Thief and Queen of the Dragons, I had to find book #1. Smoke Thief was even better than the other two. If you have not had the opportunity to read it, you must pick up a copy of Dream Thief. Rue is one of the most entertaining heroines I have encountered in a long time. I loved the way she stood up to Kit the Drakon council. And Kit, who would have thought that dragons could be sexy! Wow!

Changeling by Yasmine Galenorn

libraryelf, April 20, 2008

This series into the fae world of shapeshifters is a little different from the usual. Instead the large predatory animal, Delilah is a playful domestic cat. The scene with the Winter Holiday tree is a hoot!! If you have ever had a cat, you will throughly enjoy this installment. The required hunky men and suspense are there as well. I am definitely going to search out the books about the other two sisters!

Blueberries for Sal (Picture Puffins) by Robert Mccloskey
Blueberries for Sal (Picture Puffins)

I have loved this book since my mother read it to me. Now that I am a Children's librarian, I have the pleasure of introducing this timeless classic to more children. You can't go wrong with this story of two youngsters out for all the blueberries they can get. Highly recommended.

Mary Had a Little Jam by Bruce Lansky
Mary Had a Little Jam

This book will tickle your funny bone for sure. I like to read this just as much as my grandkids like to hear it. All new adventures for the traditional Mother Goose characters. Best of all, rhymes are a first step toward language acquisition and literacy.

Knitting (Teach Yourself Visually) by Sharon Turner
Knitting (Teach Yourself Visually)

libraryelf, April 6, 2008

I consider this the ultimate book for those of us who love to knit. The step-by-step instructions and photos are better than a DVD because you don't have to keep rewinding when you're learning a new stitch or technique. Included are several basic (10) and intermediate (7) projects let you try out your new skills. I keep this in my knitting tote all the time.
