Who Stole the Bees’ Wings? by Jeff Falyn
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I got this as a freebie in exchange for an honest review.

The concept of the story was great. I think that it might be over the heads of the target age group, though.

The illustrations were distracting because they seem to be imitating a child’s drawings. They come across as creepy.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a book about a fly and a frog who were friends. I’m surprised that the fly never got eaten, especially since the frog asked him over and over to stop landing on his nose.

The story kind of reminded me of Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket. Franky the Frog was a little flaky and needed encouragement to do what he was supposed to be doing.

It would be an ok bedtime story for a young child as long as the fly not being eaten doesn’t bother anyone.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A murder mystery! This isn’t my typical genre, but I had read The Island of Dr. Moreau recently, and I knew this was related.

I was kept guessing the whole time. I know, though, that someone who wasn’t familiar with the original story might have been more confused about what was going on.

I recommend the story, but familiarize yourself with the original book first.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I picked this up because I enjoyed the first book. I wasn’t so thrilled with this one. A lot that was left out of the first book should have continued to be left out of the second book. It felt like the author was getting paid by the word and threw random stories in to make her page count.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received this book as a free copy in order to write this review.

I enjoyed the story of Skeeter trying to save the world from the weasels, and I appreciated the pictures.

The story showed how working together can accomplish great things, and when you look at things in a different way, things become obvious to the viewer.

I enjoyed the bonus story, especially since the words weren’t split up to make extra pages, like the main story was.

I would recommend this book.

I listened to this one on audiobook. The story was fine. The narrator was fine. The music was awful! There was no reason to have the music there. It’s an audiobook, not a music album. Plus the music that was chosen made it sound life pieces of my car were falling off on the freeway. I would recommend the book if the music was edited out, but for now, I just give it a meh.
