The Dragons of Chiril by Donita K. Paul

I love that cover! The dragon is just too cute. I think the cover appeals to both boys and girls.

Tipper is in a tight spot. Her father has been missing for quite some time and her mother is a bit on the loony side. The only solution is to sell her father's famous artwork, but when she finds out that she sold three very important statues in an attempt to help her family, she realizes she made a really bad choice. The only solution is to go with Wizard Fenworth and Librettowit to find the three statues before it's too late!

As Paul's other books, I always love her characters. Tipper was in a tight spot trying to keep her home together during her father's absence and I think what she did to help her mom was realistic and true to life. I would have sold my family's artwork too! Her guardian, Sir Beccaroon, was an interesting character. You don't see a lot of talking birds in fantasy as supporting characters, but I liked it. Of course, it was great seeing Wizard Fenworth and Librettowit again!

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Rejoice (CD) by Women of Faith Worship

I loved the cover of this CD. Very cute, sparkly, and girly! It had ten great songs:

  1. Beautiful Redeemer

  2. So Good

  3. Forever Reign

  4. Come As You Are

  5. Hosanna

  6. Our God

  7. Glory to God

  8. You Brought the Sunshine

  9. Greatness of Our God

  10. Great Is Thy Faithfulness

You probably recognize a couple of those songs. They put their own twist on them which I wasn't crazy about, but it was okay. My favorites were Hosanna, Glory to God, and Greatness of Our God. I loved all their voices. The Women of Faith Worship team includes: Kara Tualatai, Michelle Swift, Laura Cooksey, Janice Gaines, Allison Abbott, Jenifer Thigpen, and Jovaun Woods.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
