What Kind of Book is Melia and Jo

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

Art and science, dancing and inventions combine in this cute story about friendship that quickly develops in place of some initial frustration following the well-known adage that two heads are better than one. The illustrations are cute, spunky and a little child-like and perfectly complement the creative nature of the story.
