"I have to say, as a grandmother, Leigh, and his friends appearing in this series have become one of my granddaughter’s absolute favorite casts to read.
When “Medieval Mashup” came around, I jumped right at it. (LOL) Why? Because I already knew my granddaughter and I would get a great book to read, I also knew it would be beautifully illustrated and allow my granddaughter to laugh and enjoy herself.
And… I was absolutely right. Book two is just as good as the first book in this series, so parents and grandparents should shout it from the rooftops.
This completely charming story, combined with adorable illustrations, yet again proves to the children’s fiction realm how creative author Charlene McIver is and how her stories resonate with all who read them. Two for two—I can’t wait to see number three. Like Seuss, I hope this is one author (and series) that goes on for a long time. “5 stars!”
