My Review; Got something a little different today on the blog. Got sent this lovely childrens book by Clink Street to review with my four year old daughter who loves fairies.
First impressions was that the cover is beautiful, colourful and eye catching! It is a beautifully set out story with large print writing and easy to read! Each page has gorgeous, detailed illustrations to accompany the story. My daughter liked to count how many fairiers was in each picture.
My daughter enjoyed the story, so do I! Perfect little rymes throughout. This is the perfect book for any little girl to dive into a fairy kingdom. I’ve read this book several times to my daughter now and she still loves it. Magical. Highly recommend. A well deserved five stars. Perfect for little ladies.
*12 Days of Clink Street* The Watcher – Monika Jephcott Thomas ★★★★★
Blurb; It’s 1949 when Netta’s father Max is released from a Siberian POW camp and returns to his home in occupied Germany. But he is not the man the little girl is expecting – the brave, handsome doctor her mother Erika told her stories of. Erika too struggles to reconcile this withdrawn, volatile figure with the husband she knew and loved before, and, as she strives to break through the wall Max has built around himself, Netta is both frightened and jealous of this interloper in the previously cosy household she shared with her mother and doting grandparents. Now, if family life isn’t tough enough, it is about to get even tougher, when a murder sparks a police investigation, which begins to unearth dark secrets they all hoped had been forgotten.
My Review; This book is so touching and heart-breaking in parts. It’s the aftermath of coming back from war, it doesn’t just affect that one person it affects the whole family.
My heart went out for little Netta and what she had seen, been through and witnessed. Poor girl, I loved her character. Max is struggling coming back from the war… His wife Erika has her own battles to fight while being there for Max and Netta.
I loved this story, I felt a whole range of emotions throughout reading this story. It is beautifully written. A must read. Powerful. Highlights how different and hard it can be for a soldier and their family after coming home. A well deserved five stars. Highly recommend. A must read. A must buy. A book that makes you open your eyes. A story that will stick with you forever.
