The Classic Reference for Celtic Art

5 stars

While there are other techniques for creating Celtic art, this treatise is detailed, extensive and clear.

Osmo Unknown and the Eightpenny Woods (Hardcover, 2022, Margaret K. McElderry Books) 5 stars

A fantasy following a boy journeying away from the only home he’s ever known and …

Adventures are Never What You Expect

5 stars

Some things have two natures. Or three. Or more. Even stories.

Now, I am not saying a respectable story would go putting on airs like a fancy fur coat. It would just end up thin and threadbare. There’s a bit of alchemy of fashion, though, when you take a bit of the familiar here and, mix it with novel new thoughts there. With the right bit of magic, it can come out svelte and stylish – something to make you proud just to be there to see it.

And, without a doubt, you should be there for this tale. Ms. Valente is a moste excellent guide where things are wild. Take her hand and, don’t dream of sleeping on this newly-minted classic.
