More Than a Department Store
Review by writinghigh Nov 13, 2017
Gordon has a job interview at Dr. Melchior’s Emporium of Magnificence, a department store that sells things one couldn’t possibly find anywhere else. As a child, Gordon frequented the store with his parents and remembered the side rooms filled with interesting artifacts, interconnecting doors, ramps, stairs, and passageways making Dr. Melchior’s shop a sophisticated maze. Brian Drakeswing, the General Manager, has a few curious questions for Gordon during the interview: Do you believe in … Read More

A great read!
Review by oisqueen May 9, 2017
I really liked this book! With all the blended families coming together, it is wonderful to read a story from a kid's point of view that sounds like an eleven year old's voice and not some Adult giving you a lesson in manners or "this is how you act". I'm a KID! I want to BE a kid! When Molly's dad marries Faith, mother to the disgusting eight year old named Henry, she knows her life will change. And just like when her mom died, her life will not be changing for the better. … Read More

A Good Story About Loss and Moving On
Review by belle Apr 21, 2017
Molly Bell And The Wishing Well is story on how a loss of a loved one, in this instance -- a mother, can affect the life of a young girl. It led her mind into thinking that any change, especially in the family dynamic, is a conspiracy to make her life even worse. A mysterious, and seemingly magical, wishing well is the only thing that gave her a semblance of hope. Until an incident made her realize that you really have to be careful on what you wish for. I was really taken by all the characters … Read More

Childhood revisited
Review by jeepwonder Apr 11, 2017
I really enjoyed this story. The pacing was quick enough this would be a nice tale to read to a child, and the values and plot would be easily understandable. The characters were identifiable, their emotions, and worries were laid out so that sympathy, even empathy for them was spontaneous for me. There are only so many ways for a young girl to face tragedy like the loss of a parent. To compound that with the arrival of a step parent and sibling can be traumatic. The author doesn't whitewash … Read More

Molly Matures
Review by kimhiding Apr 10, 2017
I read this book in one setting and found it interesting. Molly is still sad from the loss of her mother when her father remarries. Now she no longer has all his attention and doesn't like her stepmom and new brother. She has some pretty big and definite wishes when she discovers her aunt's wishing well. The results aren't quite as terrifying as "The Monkey's Paw," but do give her regrets. The plot and pacing seem right for the intended audience.

Wonderful book for children
Review by Hot Choco and Books Mar 29, 2017
This is a wonderful book with a solid story where children can learn a little bit about American history. That it was told from the perspective of Buzzy, a dog, made it even better as the children's imagination are sure to be fired up as they are caught up in Buzzy's concerns. It is well written with no typos or grammatical errors that I can see. Perfect for small kids.

Perfect Introduction for Kids to American History
Review by CrazyOnBooks Feb 19, 2017
This is a nice short story perfect for kids to know about Thomas Jefferson. The characters are all historically based on facts, but is told in a way that kids will enjoy it. I would probably say perhaps kids from 4 - 6 years old. Hats off to the author for coming up with this wonderful idea, and I fully encourage the author to come up with more of such stories.

Well written and highly recommended for kids!
Review by CrazyOnBooks May 10, 2016
A nice book to sit down and read with kids. Beyond its highly entertaining value, the book packs hidden lessons which may be picked up by children. When two kids decided to put up their parents for sale, they started entertaining different sets of kids who would want to buy their parents. Each have their own reasons for wanting to purchase new parents, and one take away we got from reading this is a realization not to take the value of our parents for granted. Well written, and should keep … Read More
