The Autumnlands: Tooth and Claw #2...

Jun 9, 2015 by

5 Stars, Buy it Self Purchase, Comixology Overall, really very good. I love all the animal characters. I love the art. There really isn’t much to complain about really other than the issues are too short. But I’m glad I’ve found a new ongoing series to read. I highly recommend this. It can be a little violent in places, but I’m not against violence as it isn’t unneccesary and is definitely part of the story. When my son is older and can read, I will definitely recommend this series to him. But honestly it might be too complicated for children, but it is a fantastic read for adults. Definitely buy and read this series.  Also, the end of this issue shows some extra sketches which I find to be really nice. My summary: The...

The Misadventures of Salem Hyde #4 Dinosaur Dilemma...

May 1, 2015 by

4.5 Stars, Buy it Self Purchase, Comixology I absolutely love this series.  It’s a total guilty pleasure. Whammy (the cat) is awesome and is trying to look out for Salem (his human).  Salem gets into her usual trouble this volume using magic and dinosaurs which you know can’t be a good mix. (See below for full description).  I love the silliness of the series. I love the artwork. Pretty much love everything about this series. My one issue with this volume is that all of the coloring is done in yellow. I’m not a big fan of the color yellow. Other than that, this is just about perfect, for both kids and adults who love kid books. Description (Comixology): Young witch Salem Hyde needs an idea for her science project, and she needs it...

Cougars! Look and Learn

Dec 30, 2014 by

4 Stars, Borrow it Wow! Two Look and Learns in one week. That really is amazing. It’s nice having a real vacation from work. I get to do what I want. Some reading, some sleeping, some messing around trying to get goodreads to import my data.   The pictures are somewhat pixelated but are otherwise decent. I’m giving this 4 stars, as the facts were pretty decent and there wasn’t any horrible glaring errors like some of the other versions of the look and learn. Worth a read, especially for kids who don’t already know most of the facts. But I did learn somethings so I’m giving this the highest rating that I will give these.   Did you know?   The cougar is known by many common names including: Puma, mountain lion, catamount,...

The Misadventures of Salem Hyde 3: Cookie Catastrophe...

Oct 24, 2014 by

5 Stars, Buy, buy, buy.   Self purchase, Kindle.   This series is such a guilty pleasure of mine. I love them. How can you go wrong with a talking cat  nammed Whammy? Lots of cute rhymes, magic and silliness. You can’t help feel bad for Salem Hyde and I totally identify with her (well, when I was a kid that is).  This is absolutely hysterical. Salem joins the Squirrel Scouts. Then there is a cookie catastrophe that involves duplicates of herself and whammy.  In part two, they Salem goes camping with her squirrel troop. OOps. Salem accidently turns someone she dislikes into a dodo bird. In case you can’t tell, I really love this series and they seem to be getting better as they go on. I really hope the author/artist produce more...

The Indispensible Calvin and Hobbes...

Sep 17, 2014 by

Overall 4.5 Stars, Buy it   Star Rating Art: 5 Stars Star Rating Story:  4 Stars   Self purchase for kindle.   Awesomeness, especially if you have a young child almost the age of Calvin. Man do I love the ones where Hobbes tackles Calvin. Hobbes is too darned cute for words. Wish I had money so I could get a Calvin and Hobbes Tattoo.   Overall, I felt like the strips in this collection were not nearly as good as the ones in the previous collections for kindle. Too many dinosaur and spaceman spiff ones. I also am not a fan of when the cartoonist puts in huge amounts of dialogue.  Of course this still goes under treasured because how can you not love Calvin and Hobbes?  I believe this is the last...
