Blog tour for children's books - Changing Places and Dominick and the Dragon

Changing Places, by Anne K. Edwards

Age level: 4-8

Price: $1.99

Pages: 14

Changing Places. A black cat named Whiskers encounters a snake that has lost his home when he goes outside to see the world.

 And my review - this is a lovely little story with the simple reminder that the grass is not always greener on the other side! It will appeal to smaller children as you can see by the length, probably three to six year-olds, and the illustrations are sweet.
Now, for slightly older children:
Dominick and the Dragon, by Anne K. Edwards
Age level: 4-8
Price: $1.99
Pages: 42

Dominick and the Dragon.  Dominick is a little boy fascinated by dragons. When he finally meets one named Elvis that wants to eat everything, including him, he has to find a way to outsmart him. His adventure proves a boy can be smarter than a dragon.
My review: Actually, never mind the dragon, this is a little boy who beats his unpleasant older brothers at their own game. It's a very good lesson in not taking things at face value! The illustrations are amusing but the plot is the strong suit here.
About the Author:  Anne K. Edwards enjoys writing tales for children when she’s not focusing on a mystery. Some stories are ideas taken from little misadventures of her cat who actually did fall off the porch and land on a large blacksnake as it was sunning itself. Both were more than a little surprised.
