Book Poor

Z is going through an Eva Ibbotson phase right now.  In her library bag this week were Journey to the River Sea, The Secret of Platform 13, and this.   She kept quoting selections from Island of the Aunts to the rest of us while she read it.  I love that Eva Ibbotson's books are well written, adventurous, and have just the right amount of scary to be enjoyable by sensitive youngsters. (I thought the same about Bunnicula, but that book gave Z and M nightmares.)

We listened to The Star of Kazan and The Beasts of Clawstone Castle earlier this year, and both were loved by Z and M alike.
