The Seren Trilogy by Darren Lewis
The Seren Trilogy is about a little girl's adventures in a fantastical place created by the imaginative Darren Lewis. The chief protagonist, Ellie, is based upon his own daughter which makes the story extra special as it's written from the heart with great love and affection. The characters are lots of fun as Darren's clever writing and wonderfully descriptive narrative flows along, interweaving between the three stories. The three stories are Ellie and the Rabbits where she meets talking rabbits and is turned into a rabbit herself! The second Ellie and the Dragon - as good a dragon as my own Jellybean? Hmm... By the way, she meets Cole, an orphan dragon in a basement! And the third, Ellie and the Battle - where she and Cole need to save the world with unexpected results.
A perfect story for children that is sure to make them excited and dreaming of their own fantastical adventures. Looking forward to the next adventures of Ellie.
I Think I've Lost My Bottom
What an interesting title! And there's much more interest inside this book of children's rhymes about derrieres, dragons, mice, the three little pigs and much, much more. Unfortunately, no rhymes about cabbages, slugs, moustaches or me, Elias Zapple. For shame! I especially enjoyed the rhyme 'In the Dark' about the adventures of a mouse in its new home. I often wonder how my newly imported slugs feel when they first arrive. I must ask them. I digress. How does one lose a bottom? What does one look like? I'd like to see an illustration please!
This is a very funny, cleverly written book of rhymes and I implore you all to grab a copy for your children who'll be entertained, laughing about bottoms and will also learn a few new words.
Choosing books worthy enough to be read and reviewed by Elias Zapple.
