#Bookreviews #Children – Oskar’s Quest and Pawfect Pet Poets

Oskar’s Quest by Annika Perry

What Amazon says

Oskar is afraid of adventures. Yet one day he finds himself on a mysterious island which needs his help. Join Oskar on this unexpected and magnificent quest, where he finds not only courage but so much more… “It’s light, extremely enjoyable and very gripping.” Esther Chilton – author & editor. Perfect for ages 3 to 6.

My review

Oskar is a ‘scaredy-bird’ and his preference to avoid adventure and stay safely in his nest has caused him to get lost on a strange island after separating from his friends in order to return home. On the island of Roda, Oskar befriends Bella, the red bell-flower. Bella is a sad little flower and Oskar soon learns that Maya, the happy songbird of Roda island has been taken by Drang, a dark cloud in the sky.

Oskar knows this won’t do and he undertakes to confront Drang and secure the release of Maya so that the island of Roda can be filled with music and happy again. Oskar soon learns that bravery is not a case of never feeling scared, it is doing something that must be done despite being scared.

Oskar’s Quest is beautifully illustrated with delightful colourful drawings which will appeal to any child. The well written story with its adventure and subtle message about bravery will ensure this story is a winner with both caregivers and children.

Pawfect Pet Poems by Victoria Zigler

Pawfect Pet Poems by [Victoria Zigler]

What Amazon says

A short collection of poems of various lengths and styles, all with one thing in common: they were written for – or about – some of the various pets my hubby and I have had.

The poems in this collection are mainly about chinchillas and dogs, though other types of animals – in particular degus – sometimes make an appearance too. All poems are captioned with details of the pets they were written for or about.

My review

This book comprises a short collection of charming poems about the poet’s furbabies. The poet is a great lover of animals and has a large variety of pets including Mollie the chinchilla who loves to watch TV, Lilie the Westie, who always wags her tail, Logan the Cavapoo, who does not like thunderstorms, Joshua the degu. People and children who enjoy pets and all their cute and funny habits, behaviours, and play activities will enjoy this book.

      1. It has ups and downs, like anything to do with children. Our grandson is 7 in December, and he is very bright. I am looking forward to when he is old enough to talk to me about History and films. I just have to make sure to live long enough! 🙂

      1. Jacqui, it’s lovely you’re keen to read both Tori’s and my book! Thank you so much for your interest and I’m sorry Amazon is proving tricky with the Kindle version working on iPads at the moment and it’s an issue I’m trying to resolve with them. It should be okay on all Kindle Fire readers and Kindle for Mac /PCs.

      2. Just to let you know that ‘Oskar’s Quest’ is now available for all devices on Kindle and Kindle reading apps … the issues for iPad and iPhone have been resolved – many thanks to David Cronin for his quick help!


    1. Hi Jacqui. If it’s Pawfect Pet Poems you’re having trouble with, you can also find it on other retailers, such as Smashwords (where it’s currently only $0.99 in their Summer/Winter sale).

    1. Pam, thank you and it was a wonderful surprise to see Robbie’s lovely review. It is the joy of children’s books that readers and younger souls love the precious moments of sharing special books.

  1. Robbie, warmest thanks for your thoughtful and lovely review of ‘Oskar’s Quest’! It’s given me a real boost and I’m beaming away! I feel the message of the book is one relevant to people of all ages and we all need that reminder now and then! Take care xx


      1. Ahh … that will be so special for you to see Coco and hope it’s not too long now. I’m honoured my book is going to her! Hooray! It does feel like a way forward with the jab … are they spacing next one months or just a few weeks apart (here in U.K. still two months!)
