Children’s Book of the Week and Other Book Reviews

This week’s reviews cover books ranging from ages 2 to 12 years plus, most of which can also be enjoyed by adults. There is a wonderful fantasy adventure, a sweet (belated – but my fault) Christmas tale, a comical look at life from a dog’s point of view and a short rhyming picture book for very young children. Don’t forget to scroll down the page at Mungai and the Goa Constrictor where you can read the full reviews of all the books.
