Twitteresque Reviews : The New Crown and Candy and the Cankersaur by Jason Sandberg

November 21, 2013 Twitteresque Reviews 4 ★★★★

Twitteresque reviews are for books where I don’t feel like writing a full review but I want to give you a flavour of how I felt during the book.  All in 140 characters or less!

Or you could call them lazy blogger reviews but doesn’t twitteresque sound better!  Yes, I think so too.

the new crownGoodreads Synopsis :
Julietta the Carpenter can build almost anything using wood, metal or fabric.
Her skills are put to the test when she runs afoul of her corrupt King. This new
fairy tale introduces a resourceful heroine to the boys and girls of today.


Twitteresque Review:

A fairytale story with colourful illustrations that have a nostalgic feel about them.  Funny and full of charm .  I loved the confident and inspirational heroine.





Thanks to Jason Sandberg for giving me a copy of these books in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Bookish Chat : I always feel slightly ridiculous liking picture books but I love any form of art.  Do you enjoy picture books or reading out loud with children?  I read both of these with a friends daughter and she really enjoyed them, especially The New Crown.

      I feel totally ridiculous! I would definitely never read them in public. I do love the artwork though and some of the stories are just so quirky and original that it’s hard not to fall in love with them.

      They are both cute! I love reading with children especially when they really start to look at the pictures and get excited about the story. So much fun 🙂
