Book Review: There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner

There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner is a children's book where kids look to make sure there are no dragons in the book.  The expected publication date is March 5, 2024.  I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of this book. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this picture book.  I didn't care for the story, and it's not something I would likely read to a child.  I also didn't like that the story actually did have dragons in it only because I feel like a child might be upset that they were mislead.  However, I'm not the target audience, so kids may love it. On a positive note, I did enjoy the colorful illustrations.  It definitely gives the reader a lot to look at.  Three out of five stars is what I gave There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner.

Book Review: Mallory and the Trouble With Twins (The Baby-Sitters Club, #21) by Ann M. Martin

Mallory and the Trouble With Twins (The Baby-Sitters Club, #21) by Ann M. Martin is told from Mallory Pike's point of view. When Mallory gets a consistent babysitting job watching over the Arnold twins two days a week, she's thrilled. That is until Marilyn and Carolyn switch places and act like spoiled brats.

This edition of The Baby-Sitters Club took me down memory lane as I was obsessed with this series in middle school and desperately wanted to start my own babysitting club. Rereading this as an adult, I was not disappointed. The only thing I remembered about this book was that Mallory desperately wanted pierced ears, but I had forgotten the rest of the storyline. 

The thing I most enjoyed about Mallory and the Trouble With Twins is that it explored how twins felt about being treated like the same person just because they look alike. It just shows that there are underlying reasons for why kids may be acting out other than just being a brat. The thing I liked least about this book was that the other members of the baby-sitters club just thought that Mallory was a terrible sitter until they each experienced how awful the Arnold twins acted. All in all, I enjoyed this book and gave it five out of five stars.
