In an effort to more regularly communicate here on this site, I've created a youtube channel for all things authoring. I'll post my videos here as I create them, hopefully weekly. Enjoy the first video in a series of videos showing how to go from getting the idea to published work!
Story Thieves by James Riley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a creative book! It was aimed at younger readers, so I resisted reading it when my children were obsessed with it. But then a friend of min also recommended it to me and I gave it a read. It was very enjoyable, fun and an all around great adventure.
The characters are very well developed and unique. I like that they don't always do what is best, but they do things that would be true to their personal experiences and desires. That made these characters really come to life for me.
I loved how Riley brought in pop culture books and even poked fun at himself as an author. That was witty and appreciated.
However, if I must be honest, the thing I loved most about this book was the acknowledgements and dedication. That was truly brilliant! Great book!
