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: The Mysterious Benedict Society (The Mysterious Benedict Society, #1) by Trenton Lee Stewart

book review the mysterious benedict society trenton lee stewart

The Mysterious Benedict Society (The Mysterious Benedict Society, #1) by Trenton Lee Stewart is about four children who answer a strange ad in a newspaper. They must pass several tests to be chosen for a very special undercover mission at the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened. What is the mission, and will they succeed?

Reminiscent of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, The Mysterious Benedict Society is an intriguing read that caught my attention from the very beginning. However, there are some slow parts in the middle that could have been edited out, which is my only complaint. The ending is wrapped up nicely with only a few loose ends so this book can be read as a stand alone. However, I will read the next book in the series.

What's cute about the book is that it has a quiz at the end. Your results will tell you which main character you are most like. After taking it, my result revealed that I am most like Reynie, who was my favorite character. Another cute thing about the story is that there is a "letter" from Mr. Benedict at the end as well saying that his first name was revealed in the book. However, I still don't know what it is.

Don't let the fact that The Mysterious Benedict Society is a children's book deter you from reading it as an adult because you'd be missing out on a great story. I gave it four out of five stars. If you liked this book, I recommend reading The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.
