The Circle Open 2: Street Magic product reviews

Briar is a plant mage - he can distil medicines, grow a garden in a blink of an eye and persuade a tree to trap a criminal. Learning how to channel your power is vital. Briar's empathy with nature can heal - but it could kill just as easily.

Evvy is just a street rat. She doesn't even know she has stone magic, let alone how to control it - and she doesn't want to learn anything. Why should she care if people get hurt? None of them has ever cared about her...

Book Two in "The Circle Opens" series.

A definite page-turner; I was quickly caught up with the story and pretty much couldn't put it down. The first story in this series, Magic Steps, already flowed with a nice swift pace; but this one fair swings you into the saddle and gallops away with you.

Yet again Tamora Pierce draws the reader along on a ride they can't get off until they tumble out at the end. Everything you could hope for in a fast paced fantasy story: practical powerful magic; female and male characters that are equally likeable and powerful; a truly dastardly villain; even murder, blood and gore in this one. You definitely do NOT cross a mage and get away with it lightly.

Note of caution:
Certain individuals in the story are done away with in a somewhat gruesome manner, so possibly not for the very young or exceedingly faint hearted.

Product reviews for listing 8474: The Dinky Donkey
Written by Craig Smith

Product image for The Dinky DonkeyThe Dinky Donkey possesses the same irresistible, rambunctious spirit as her famous dad, and is a pint-sized package of cuteness set to deliver a huge dose of laugh-out-loud reading fun.

Children will love Craig Smith's playful verses and Katz Cowley's hilarious illustrations, and they will adore the punky, blinky, dinky donkey who smells just as bad as her dad!

The accompanying song can be downloaded or streamed so that little ones can join in.
