#MiniReview The Frosell Affair by Heddy Frosell da Ponte

I was blown away by this story and the heartfelt way in which it was told. It’s about so much more than the war, reading it, you unwind a conspiracy where the conspirators took advantage of the chaos of the time to frame an innocent man and steal his fortune. It is a particularly sad story because it is told by the daughter of the framed man who at the time was only a child and had to see her family fall from opulence to ruin as a result of this plot. Her father had thoroughly documented his account of what happened giving the author a first-hand account to share to clear his name.

(REVIEW) The Tails/Tales of Fin and Fang: Bare/Bear Trouble by Kat Morris @Katface14

This is an educational book with a fun story and beautiful illustrations. It teaches children homophones (like tail/tale) while telling an action-packed story. It's a book children will want to read again and again and they will greatly enjoy looking at the pictures.
