When I setup this page for reviews I never dreamed I'd be reading such a wide smorgasbord of genes. OK, I could see YA and maybe young YA.. BUT, I hold the line on books that you read to those sitting on your knee... WELL, I did until.....
Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat
by Greta Burroughs
Every one was praising Greta's books. So, I asked and..
Greta graciously sent me a copy of one of her stories. She did good. For, I enjoy my Cats and Dogs. Her story reminded me of the days long gone when I was read tales to as a child. The tales reminded me of the times I read books to my own children, years ago. And on the next visit from the grandchildren a new memory will be formed.
The drawings inside the book are enchanting. Each individual story exciting for all children. Even the inner child that lingers deep inside of you and me.
Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat is a fun read to have read to you or to read yourself. But, be warned Greta Burroughs is sneaky.
At the end of each unique episode is a section with three questions. So expertly, done to make the conversion with the child fortunate enough to be by your side to continue by helping them learn from Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat’s adventures.
So, go get yourself a copy to share with someone on your knee, or to lose yourself in a memory. You won’t be disappointed.
Oh, to be young again snugged down in my bed as Dad read me a story. I think Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat would have given 'The Pokey Little Puppy' a run for it.
Through the Eyes of Lisa Day.
A very interesting read. If you like to read snappy fast witted books, then I got one for you or rather Philip Whiteland does. I found I like these type of stories if done correctly and Mr. Whiteland proves he has the skill to pull it off.
Jambalaya is a fast pace read to take you away from the humdrum day. You have to like to move from characters to narrator and back with ease to follow some of his great puns.
I would have titled the book- The misadventures of Miss Celany Garden. But, no matter she gets her man in the end on the story. So if your into her heaving bosoms or his tight firm.... Ain’t no spoilers here.
Whether you on the side of the North or South..
"Jambalaya” by Philip Whitehead just might be the quirky fun read you’ve been looking for.

Philip is a 58 year old university lecturer in Human Resource Management. He doesn't tend to tell too many people about this as he is acutely aware of their eyes glazing over as he speaks.He has occasionally been accused of humour. "Steady Past Your Granny's" was Philip's first, self-published, collection of 'nostalgedy' stories. Closely followed by 'Crutches for Ducks' which continued the memoirs. Has just published his first foray into full-length humorous fiction, 'Jambalaya'.
