With Me Amber, BBHQ'S Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty

Fantabulous greetings pawesome furiends

Hey guys, Amber here *waves paw excitedly* 

It's Wednesday and mew know what that means; YAY I've got another book to share with mew!

Here's hoping mew've all had a terrific week thus far and it's only going to better heading towards the weekend.

Now I've been trawling the shelves fur something to excite mew all with... which does take a bit of time as mew can see.  Luckily I have a good organisational system:-

At each end of the library are the old books, some of the musty old volumes going back as far as the 1800's, and then in the middle is effurything else! MOL   But seriously it's a little more organised than that; with categories fur; cats, fiction, non-fiction, new age, health, fitness, art, antiques, interior design, sewing, fashion, gardening, cooking, travel, music, kids fiction, spoken wurd cassettes & CD's etc... and then a whatever category fur poetry and other things that there aren't too many of.  And I always have to keep a couple of shelves spare fur new purchases! MOL

As mew can see I have a diverse collection of reading material to while the hours away.

Are mew ready fur this weeks offuring?

Today I'm sharing a cute trilogy I read a number of years ago.

(Secret Country Trilogy)

The Shadow World & Dragon's Fire

  Book II                              Book III

The Secret Country was furst published 2006, it's a combination of a magical wurld aka The Secret Country and our own mundane wurld, with obviously a cat as the hero.  Iggy is the star of the books who gets adopted from a magical pet shop by Ben and that's when the adventure begins.

A tale of two wurlds, furiendship and a journey along the wild roads, with a whole host of fantastical creatures along the way.  It's fast paced and funny with deeper meaning should mew choose to wade into those depths, if not that's ok too.

I can safely say that the trilogy was highly enjoyable, well written and fun with fabulous descriptive scenes and I was eager to devour all three volumes post-haste.

While targeted to the children's age group 9-12, I feel that anyone who loves a good 'tail' would really enjoy this series.

The Secret Country: 256 pages

The Shadow World:  288 pages

Dragon's Fire:  320 pages

I can't find any audio books fur the trilogy, so sadly there's no stats to share with mew.

Happy reading

  3. That sounds like a great trilogy. My mum says that often children's books are more entertaining than adults. I think it is because she is going back to her second childhood, or maybe she never grew up!

    1. Flynn your mum is so right, a lot of kids books are highly entertaining! Second childhood, 3rd one & maybe a 4th one who cares, life's too short to be a grown-up all the time! MOL MOL XOX
