Tana French at her very best! Her ability to draw you into a world is tremendous, yet seemingly effortless. The writing never feels overdone, and the story flows from the page beautifully, with characters so fully formed that you are completely invested in their lives. They truly begin to feel like family and friends, so much so, that when you realize there is a killer in their midst, the shock you feel is real. Set in the idyllic home of a beloved Uncle, one that has seen many summer vacations throughout our protagonist’s childhoods, we follow along as a horror is uncovered, and all that unfolds as a consequence. This book is a treat waiting to be devoured. Enjoy! ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

Macfarlane and Morris have created a treasure, something so precious that we need to hand this on to future generations with great care, but also great urgency. We are losing our wild places, our wildlife, and now the words that even name them. When Macfarlane discovered that the Oxford junior dictionary intended to leave out some nature words and replace them with tech words, he set out to reintroduce them via his poems, so that words like acorn, dandelion and kingfisher could remain alive in our vocabulary. Brought to life by the most beautiful illustrations, a wild world that only Jackie Morris can evoke, this is a spell book for modern life. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
