Favorite pastime? Reading with my kids. Just finished Nana Cracks the Case!
5.0 / 7.0

The story will entertain young readers while also telling a deeper message of sharing your unique voice with the world and finding that others in return share with you and guide your journey. The illustrations depicting the night world that seems so strange and dark are excellent.
