Elisabeth has been told all her life that sorcerers are evil and no good can come of magic. In a world in which grimoires come to life and librarians wield swords, in which demons make tea and misinformation threatens to topple cities, the time has come that she must decide for herself. Rogerson has flawlessly created a reading experience as magical as the world she has crafted. Though her gift for world-building is undeniable, her real talent lies in illuminating the subtleties of humanity. What would we do for love? What would we do to not be alone? The answer becomes resoundingly clear: anything. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost

A great book demonstrating how to vocalize your feelings. Le Henand displays an open dialogue between little ones who are either cranky, afraid, or angry and their accompanying parents. This encourages responding to feelings with open communication rather than reacting, and has fun tabs to pull too! ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost
This thoughtful book speaks perfectly to children dealing with anxious and fearful thoughts. The personification of fear works flawlessly here, and the message that fear is not something to be eliminated, but rather that it's important only not to let it grow too big is what makes this title a real winner. All at once demystifying fear and nudging us toward compassion, Sanna gets all the stars from me. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost
