the clock snatcher Reviews
It's no secret, I ADORE M.G. King.So when I heard she was writing another book, I was pretty excited. We love Librarian on the Roof! here at our house and I completely devoured Fizz & Peppers. Anything M.G. King touches, pretty much turns to gold in my opinion. She’s Texas' very own Rumpelstiltskin.This latest picture book is 47 pages long, with a lot of glorious black and white pictures. Think The Spider and the Fly when Tony DiTerlizzi did the illustrations – a myth to last the ages in combination with high quality sketches can’t go wrong.Right now the book is only $3.99 on Kindle. Maybe if everyone buys one and supports our favorite local kid’s author there will be a hardback edition in our future. My bookshelves are already itching for a copy… I can hear them calling for it… this book belongs in every mother’s library… and child’s, and dragon lovers, and clock collector, and art appreciator, and…
A picture book. Delightful, charming. Made me laugh a couple of times. About a dragon who stole time.
Pathos and puns, wry wit and wisdom, all in a charming little picture-book. I really enjoyed it just on my own. But, if my boys were still young, we'd read this over & over again. Every time, we'd enjoy the pictures of the flying dragons, the intricate clocks, the beguiling village, and the dancing people. We'd also appreciate the theme about slowing down and taking time to enjoy the simple pleasures of life.Disclaimer - I received a free PDF from the author, and I do consider her a 'friend' on goodreads. However, I vow this is an honest review and written without bias.
