This is a collection of children’s stories:
The Teapot and The Kettle
The Last Unicorn
The White Rhino
The Lost Puppy
The Green Knight and The Dragon Warrior Save Santa
Each story has a really cute hand drawn picture that I think kids would enjoy looking at. My kids are getting a bit too old for these stories, but it might be a bit much for younger kids. I think if you give the stories a read, you’ll be able to tell if these bedtime stories will work for your children. Each story has an interesting fantasy twist that I found amusing. Overall, I think this is a fun book that middle-aged children would enjoy reading.
This children’s anthology is 5 short stories for bedtime:
The Wicked Witch and The Squirrels
The Treasure Fairy
The Wicked Witch, The Hacker
The Wicked Witch and The Switch
The Wicked Witch in Black and White
They include cute drawings that I find adorable and appropriate for a child to view. The stories themselves, while interesting are just too sophisticated for younger children and too juvenile for older children. With my children, I would have had to stop the story frequently to explain what a word meant and my older kids would lose interest. You know damn well the teenager would roll her eyes but what do they not roll their eyes about, lol. Anyway, each tale is interesting and I think these stories can appeal to certain children. I’d suggest you read a sample of this anthology to see if your children will enjoy it. My favorite story is The Wicked Witch and the Squirrels. It was really cute about the wicked witch stealing baby squirrel’s tales. Poor things! I like the plot, the characters and the overall vibe.
Title: Monster Boots

Genres: Children, Literature, Fiction, Bullies
TBR Reviewer: Amy
Rating: 4 Stars - Recommended Read!
A bully by the name of Wild Billy Buffoon shows up and leaves more than his footprints. With the help of his two stomping feet, Billy pushes the town of Foots past it’s limits. That is until the town has had a enough. Then the sheriff confronts Billy and his bully ways.
This is a story that shows the aspect of bullying. Wild Billy is a big old bully and instead of one single person he ends up bullying the town. He is not a nice person and doesn’t care who he hurts. Then the town sheriff finally takes a stand and makes Billy understand that what he is doing is not right.
I think the story is told well, especially in terms of describing how a bully is and reacts. It has a great meaning as well as resolution for smaller children to understand along with relate able characters. I give this story 4 stars because it has a real meaning and teachable aspect to it.
