It Takes a Village by Hillary Rodham Clinton, Marla Frazee
Rating: WORTHY! I have to say that yet again, Goodreads screwed up royally with a book blurb. Here's how it begins: "In Mrs. Clinton book..." - way to denigrate a female author by making her an appendage of a guy. Not 'Hillary Clinton', but Mrs (Bill) Cli...

Marvel Ant-Man Look and Find
Rating: WARTY! I'm a fan of the Marvel movie universe, and I've seen Ant-Man and The Wasp twice in the theater, and watched the original Ant-Man on Blu-Ray countless times after loving that in the theater too. They're both great movies, and funny as hell, ...

Give Please a Chance by Bill O'Reilly, James Patterson
Rating: WARTY! Not a fan of O'Reilly or Patterson, especially not now I see the two have colluded on writing a children's book! After all the news we've had about O'Reilly and harassment allegations and multi-million dollar hush money, I don't see where he...

The Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton
Rating: WARTY! This was another in a set of children's books written by celebrities that I'm reviewing and they're a sorry bag, I'm saddened to say. I loved Tim Burton's Beetlejuice which I thought was inspired, and also his original Batman , both starring ...

Naughty Mabel Sees it All by Nathan Lane, Devlin Elliot, Dan Krall
Rating: WARTY! This was another in a set of children's books written by celebrities that I'm reviewing and they're a sorry bag, I'm saddened to say. I'm a fan of Nathan Lane. I love him as an actor, but not as a writer of children's books. No idea who the...

Touch the Earth by Julian Lennon, Bart Davis, Smiljana Coh
Rating: WARTY! Now it's time to review some children's books written by celebrities and we have a sorry bag, I'm saddened to say. This one is by that Julian Lennon, son of John. This is a short but colorful book illustrated by Smiljana Coh, and co-written ...

The Tiger in the Well by Philip Pullman
Rating: WARTY! Published in 1990, for me this was the weakest book in the quadrilogy so far (I have one more volume still to read). Frederick is dead. Sally has had his child from their one brief dalliance right before he died, and it's this child, Harrie...

The Shadow in the North by Philip Pullman
Rating: WORTHY! This was first published in 1986 as The Shadow in the Plate and is set six years after the previous volume The Ruby in the Smoke , this novel takes place in 1878. I know that they tended to go in for long engagements in the past, but six ye...

The Ruby in the Smoke by Philip Pullman
Rating: WORTHY! Published in 1985, and set in Victorian times, this is the first of a quadrilogy, three-quarters of which I enjoyed overall. It's been a long time since I read this though, and I still have to read the last volume in the set! I have multipl...

The Lonely Balloon by Gemma Mallorey, Cleoward Sy
Rating: WORTHY! The very title of this made me laugh. I am so far out of the intended age group for it, yet I couldn’t help but read it! That’s the importance of a good title. Good art also helps, and the amazingly-named and equally talented Cleoward Sy ...
