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 Little Scottish Ghost by Franz Hohler

book review the little scottish ghost franz hohler

The Little Scottish Ghost by Franz Hohler is a children's picture book that is being re-released in the United States by NorthSouth Books on July 18, 2023.  This humorous and not so scary book is about a little ghost that is learning to haunt the house she lives in with her parents, but her lessons don't go as planned as she ends up making the residents laugh instead tremble in fear.  Because of this, she is sent off to a castle to learn how to haunt properly.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and NorthSouth Books for approving my request to read The Little Scottish Ghost.  Originally published in 1980, I had never heard of this book growing up, and it sounded intriguing.  I knew I had to read it and was happy that I received the ebook for free in exchange for my honest review.

This is a book I would have loved as a child.  I've always liked stories about ghosts, witches, and the like, even as a little girl.  Not scary in the least, The Little Scottish Ghost teaches children that even when things don't go as planned that whatever it is can turn out to be even better.  It also teaches the lesson that things aren't always what they seem.  With that being said, I did feel like there was something lost in translation.  The illustrations were fantastic, and I enjoyed looking at them. Four out of five stars is what I give The Little Scottish Ghost by Franz Hohler.
