  • My favorite poem on the book is Note To Nature Regarding Cherry Blossoms it go’s like this:
  • To make this air beautiful Fill it with blossom bouquets Name them cherry and dot them on branches Invite them to welcome spring With tender shades of blush and pink Send invitations to sightseers and travelers Tell them to hurry.

    This book is about a girl named Izzy who’s sister named Hen was kidnapped by Peter Piper ( The Piper, Good Peter) and is taken to the magical world Faerie to be adopted at the Apple Festival in Avhalon. The girls’ neighbor is actually from Faerie so she goes to rescue Hen but Izzy follows her and ends up on the mission instead after an attack of mutant spider webs.

    In this book, a squirrel is picked up by a hawk and dropped far from his home. He has to find his way home. Two of his friends find him. There are humans cutting down the trees for a power line. The squirrels have to get to their family get them to move.

    I liked the friendship in the story. Some of the squirrels have funny names like TsTs which were fun to say. I liked reading a chapter a night with my grownups. Some nights we read more so we finished early!

    I like reading with my grownups. It is fun.
