Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway's Ghost Kids Book Review

We begin with Kitty landing in Florida, taking a break from flying around the world Amelia Earhart-style. With a nose for adventure, but a knack for trouble, it doesn't take Kitty too long before suspense finds her. 

Reading books in this series takes me back to when I was young and books like this seemed far more common. Time for reading has been taken away from our younger generation mostly due to newer technology, different distractions, and tighter schedules. Reading remains no less important however and it is important to read something as engaging and fun as a Kitty Hawk book to ensure you keep reading until the end. Once you start reading this book, I can promise that you will finish it. 

The sudden and rapidly evolving suspense of this series is what my daughter and I love most about this series. The author, Iain Reading, does an excellent job narrating a picture that places you amid the action by describing elements that cover all of the appropriate senses like scents, colors, and textures. 

Overall, this book fairs very well as an adventure novel. At just over 300 pages it is available both in print, and in digital edition at a greatly reduced cost. The artwork on the cover is as amazing as the other entries in the series.  Don’t miss out on this great Kitty Hawk entry, or if need be, start from the beginning with the Curse of the Yukon Gold, adventure lies in the pages of these books.

Where to purchase: You are able to purchase Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway's Ghost (Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series) from Amazon for $8.09

OMG: The Magic Mistake Kids Book Review

Being twelve years old is hard enough as it is without having to worry about taking care of other people’s problems for them. Little Lacey Unger-Ware can attest to this, as this is exactly what she has been tasked with doing. It’s a good thing she has super-powers to help her accomplish the task! In the second OMG (Oh My Godmother) outing, Lacey has been tasked with helping a woman named Gina discover true love in less than a week. This is an awfully big test for such a small Godmother. Throw in the consequence of becoming cursed if she fails, and you have stakes that are even higher for poor little Lacey. Not to be mistaken as foreboding, the book remains upbeat and positive, in spite of the tall odds that Lacey faces. 

The second book in the OMG series is a great time for younger readers who get bored easily. It is silly, fun, and has illustrations to help bring the tale to life. This book can be read as a sequel to the first, but this is not necessary as it does a good job on its own in case you missed the first. It is a fairly short read. Dedicated youth readers will probably finish it in a couple of sittings. I think that this is good, books that are too long can confuse or intimidate young readers, this book will leave them wanting to read the first if they have not already.
