Home by Alison Neuman

A sweet and delightful story of going home is what you’ll find in Home by Alison Neuman.

A Persian cat named Fluffy is far from home thanks to a winter storm. She and her mouse friend Levi, along with Levi’s family, are on a journey back to Fluffy’s house in the hopes all of them can live together with Fluffy’s human.

This is the third book in a series featuring Fluffy and Levi, who uses a special wheelchair to get around. While it mostly stands alone, it would have been helpful if I read the first two books. A dog named Buster is mentioned twice in the book, but not ever seen or heard from. One must imagine he played a larger role in a different book in the series. There is mention of a mouse-hunting cat patrolling the warehouse and how Fluffy stayed close on the journey home in case she needed to protect the mice from surprise visitors, but they don’t make an appearance. This is a story of Fluffy using landmarks to find her way home and hoping Melissa finds it in her heart to open their home to Levi and his family. A simple story with a simple message of finding a place called home without a ton of obstacles along the way. Sometimes, those are the best kinds of stories, because you expect a happy ending.

Katherine Restoveix provided the artwork for all three of the books. They are charming and perfectly complement the story. The blue sky with wisps of clouds, the fluffy white snow from the storm, the furry purple slippers on Melissa’s feet, and the red and white barn dollhouse are all favorite illustrations of mine and bring the story to life. Children will love the stories for the illustrations alone, so they will want to read more about Fluffy and Levi.

The author’s passion for sharing underrepresented voices is clear in this series. I would recommend you read Home, but I suggest you start with Don’t Eat Family and Help from Friends if you want youngsters to fully understand Fluffy and Levi’s story.

Storybook Academy: The Keeper by Kylie Marcus

One Girl. Five Prince Charmings. Who Said Happily Ever After Is Only For Two?

After my grandfather died, he left me one thing: a magical book. Now I’m enrolling at an Academy for fairy tale characters and it’s up to me to put their stories back together.

There are just a couple problems:
1.Last time I read a bedtime story, I was six.
2.It’s not like people are walking around introducing themselves as Prince Charming.
3.And speaking of princes – the princes I do meet aren’t interested in their princesses – but they’re only interested in kissing me?!

My grandfather’s letter said the fate of both this world and my own rests on my rewriting the fairy tales. That’s a lot for a sixteen-year-old to deal with let alone throwing in some villains who only want to see me fail.

Once Upon a Time as we know it, will never be the same.

Disclaimer: This is a Why Choose?/Reverse Harem story where the heroine falls for many heroes and does not pick just one.
