Penelope Gilbert and the Children of Azure

PENELOPE GILBERT AND THE CHILDREN OF AZURE is an utterly adorable book for kids.  (By kids…the main character is 13.  I could see myself reading this around that age and it becoming one of my favorites.)

This book is one adventure after another, with cute drawings mixed in.  I liked how the action never stopped.  When I taught in elementary school, a lot of kids would complain about “boring” sections in books.  They would quit reading. I can see this book holding their attention the entire way through.

My favorite part is the charm which the author writes with.  The dialogue flows well, and there are quite a few humorous sections.  This book comes highly recommended!
