Review: Rocket-Bye

Carole P. Roman travels to the stars, orbiting the moon and rocketing past planets in this adorable journey to the far reaches of the galaxy. A beautiful bedtime poem, this verse is sure to delight any child before they go to sleep.

Carole P. Roman's Rocket-Bye (Create Space Independent Publishing Platform, 2016) had me from the very first rhyme.  In my opinion, rhyme is indispensable for pre-school kids.  Add colorful pictures and a journey through space and you've got an excellent bedtime story.  I really enjoyed Rocket-Bye, and I think it's a great choice for little ones.

Review: Tartan And Twine





Aren't these bags adorable?  I had a chance to check out the Organizer, and it was love!  The picture does not do the quality of the bags justice.  The gold in the texture sparkles, and the fabric feels rich and heavy.  The quality is just superb.  I'm giving my college age niece an Organizer for Christmas, and Baby Puppy wants one, too.  You can find Tartan and Twine at Ulta.  Happy Shopping!

Review Invasion Of The Dumb Snatchers

Something is seriously wrong in America. Growing numbers of people are embracing sustainability, efficiency, common sense, and economic sanity. The rapid spread of intelligence is ruining our country and threatening our tradition of doing everything as stupidly as possible. Only one man knows what’s really happening. Only Miles Bennell, assistant manager at Burger King, knows that aliens are replacing our bodies with exact duplicates. Will he save us before the aliens destroy America? Will he get Becky, the waitress at the local Hooters, to dump her idiot boyfriend Geoffrey so he can touch her boobs? ~~ This satirical twist on the classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers humorously explores the implications of our deep desire to remain stupid.

Scott Erickson's Invasion of the Dumb Snatchers (Azaria Press, 2016) will either offer a few laughs for your post-election blues or confirm your worst fears.  This is either satire of the finest order or the channeling of next week's fake news.  I'll let you be the judge.  Despite having to sort through a couple of  really glaring editorial mishaps, I really enjoyed Invasion of the Dumb Snatchers and will be keeping an eye out for Miles Bennell and his crew.  Because they're coming, people.  They're coming.
