This is a great collection for kids. With creepy looking illustrations, it describes each hoax, then gives facts to refute them. It explains how hoaxes came to be, and how they can be explained away. My favorite was the giant cat, Snowball, whose picture shows her to be the size of a big dog being held by his owner. It was a picture that his owner faked and sent to a few of his friends. He claimed the gigantic size was the result of radiation, but of course, he never thought anyone would believe him! But they did, and the picture went viral. This collection ends with this caveat: seeing isn’t always believing! This collection may be short, but it is quite entertaining, has clear and precise information, and includes a glossary and a listing of books as well as a safe way to search websites for further reading.… (mais)

Thank you to my friend Diane for suggesting this. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It took me a little while to get into it, and there were even a few times I wasn't sure I liked it. But the writing was masterfully done, and by the end, the spell that Barnhill had woven with her words, her characters, and the shifting POVs rang out with such profound love and beauty, I will not soon forget it.

NOT just for kids (and NOT little kids) - but otherwise, I recommend this to all magickal people.… (mais)

In this novel, women sometimes become dragons - sometimes in individual instances and others in mass. For all that this is a fantastical element, these dragons exist in a world that is very much our own. The Mass Dragoning of 1955 centers this novel, which is very much about one family and the impact of members leaving, staying, and returning. The process of becoming a dragon is something only addressed in whispers and discouraged by society even as it continues to happen. Metaphors abound in this novel and while one could certainly read this novel as a metaphor for many things, one could also simply enjoy it as a great story.… (mais)
