The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.25 / 7.0

The illustrations in this book are absolutely amazing, and the premise is fun and different, but the way the story was told just didn’t make it all the way to “great” in my book.
