My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was an intense read. I eagerly followed J.B., Edward, and Noelle in their pursuit to end the curse of the Granville fortune. While saving lives and battling enemies--Morgan is a juicy one--I couldn't help but be entranced by the storyline. Old and young readers alike will enjoy the cast of characters, setting, and adventure.

Max at NightMax at Night by Ed Vere
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Max is a kitten on a mission. He has a habit of saying good night to everyone and everything. He won't go to sleep until he says goodnight to the moon, which he can't see tonight. He's willing to travel all over to find it, and then he'll fall into slumber. Max is a cute, persistent character and the illustrations are wonderful. I read this via NetGalley, courtesy of the publisher.
