This book is witty just like all of Lloyd Alexander's books. And the title... jeeze, I could say it over and over and over. It's so much fun. Gypsy Rizka. Gypsy Rizka. Or try saying it with an accent. Scottish. English. Norwegian. *throws confetti* It's like a PAR-TAY! ... almost.

The conclusion in the Westmark Trilogy. Once you're done with this, you can stop throwing books in the fire and loving them to pieces and can finally relax, sobbing in your bed partially because you have nothing more to look forward to and partly because your banana-cream smoothie spilled on your favorite Sponge Bob sheets.

This is tragic. I was really mad about a couple of things, but I couldn't stay mad very long, because I LOVED it to pieces and pieces and then picked up the pieces and spent the next month paying late fees while I glued each piece back together and then finally returned it in the moments before the library was about to send their ninja assassin team out to retrieve the book.

Even though the title unfortunately gets cut off just when it's getting good (see the book for the full title in all its awesomeness), the book continues after it starts to get good and after it reaches epic. In fact, it actually continues all the way to the end, unlike its unfortunate title.

Remarkable. And it has the sweetest love story ever, except for maybe Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty, but those don't count because that goes without being said that Disney princesses trump all other wannabe love stories, though I wouldn't necessarily label this a wannabe love story, because it's actually quite remarkable.

If you can think of anything (ANYTHING) more awesome than being able to shape-shift into a hawk, then you must be a ninja. If you are a ninja, please, please, please write me an autograph. You can leave it at the third tree opposite the stop sign to the left of Caribou Coffee (*narrowly avoids drooling at the thought of coffee*). If you aren't a ninja (you failure!), then just read the darn book.

I'll have to admit that I was originally not going to read this because it looked far too immature and juvenile for my outstanding reputation. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I am not as mature as I believed myself to be and thus I read and enjoyed this book and now advise you to do the same.

I find sound recordings to be unnaturally biased, because deaf people can't listen to them. On a completely different note, the book was enjoyable. And on a completely otherly different note, waffles with ketchup are not enjoyable in most circumstances and social backgrounds.

The Folk Keeper
Billingsley, Franny, 1954-
"They were all teeth and wet mouth." Now then, let's step back a moment and wonder what the heck the author is talking about. She clearly must not mean the main character, because we all know that the main character is a girl and girls only have one mouth that is generally not overly wet or toothy. Since the girl is the Keeper, that leaves only two options. A) 'The' B) 'Folk' It clearly isn't the 'folk' because 'folk' are creepy, indescribable ghostly creatures that sit in people's cellars and eat their food and will kill them unless there's a Folk Keeper to keep them back. Therefore the quote at the beginning of my overly long comment must refer to 'The' and that makes no sense at all.

The only reason I picked this book up was because the girl on the front cover had red hair and I am unnaturally biased against girls with red hair. In fact, I keep a special backpack thrown over my shoulder at all times so that if I see a red-head, I can throw a cupcake at her. (Sadly, they don't seem to appreciate this generosity) Anyway, I read the book, throwing a cupcake at the page whenever they mentioned the color red. Which wasn't often enough for my taste. So I just ate the cupcakes.

I'm not really into science fiction, but it was only after I read this book that I discovered that it was sci-fi, so I think I'm excused. Well, it's the best sci-fi novel, I've read in a long time.

Be not afraid. This book is not about long division *shudder* or multiplication or the sine and tangent or anything pertaining to torture in general. But it does have to do with certain stones that allow you to talk to animals, and even though I'm not an animal person (does anyone LIKE having stinking dog fur on their hand and clothing and furniture??) I enjoyed the book. Mostly because there were very few dogs.

Although I waited and waited and waited for them to mention something about the Warrior's Hair, they didn't, which I find extremely disappointing because that's what the title says. I scoured the book for any mention, but sadly failed. His hair may have been blond, but I don't know for certain.

OK. Just needed to get that off my chest. Now, this is a great book that you must read, after you've read the three books that came before it. (Note the little number four in the top left corner)

I read this on a dark and stormy night while I was crouched in my burrow beneath the bare, flickering light bulb that strangely resembled the light bulb on the front cover of this book. I would have read it cover to cover without stopping, except for the fact that I had to change positions in my underground labyrinth every seven minutes for fear that the National Society for Pursuit and Persecution of Critics might find me and imprison me in a vat of strawberry marmalade.

My dearest colleague was convinced that children's literature was taking a great dive for the worse and he was quite insistent that this book was a handmanual on how to pickpocket those around you, so I read it to prove him wrong. I ended up proving him wrong. I also ended up enjoying the book, thus the reason that I risk discovery and creep out of hiding for just long enough to review this book.

Once again, I have been sadly deceived by the title of a book. Being in a tight situation, I was hoping that this book might detail just how I could fashion a saddle on the local dragon before the NSPPC could launch their attack, and I was surprise (and a little distressed) to find that it was instead the sequel to a book that I had enjoyed. I read the book swiftly and then fled the scene on the back of my purple llama.

So, I began reading it in the hopes that it would detail the mysterious process of the ancient Egyptians' method of slippering on the backs of dragons, but was pleasantly surprised to find that it was about a young seamstress named Creel and her many adventures. I finished the first chapter and was hooked as surely as if one of my brother had cast their fishing pole wrong and it had gotten stuck in my arm and yanked me under water to kowtow with the fishes. I read it all the way through without drowning. So I now recommend this book to you, oh faceless reader of my reviews. However, I still know nothing of the ancient Egyptians' methods of slippering on the backs of dragons.

After reading this, I felt my inner pyromaniac rise up and tell me very politely that I really should burn something. Actually, that was halfway through the book. So while I read, I absentmindedly lit matches and flicked them into the abyss before me and I was so absorbed in the book that I didn't even notice that my blue and red spangled lawn chair was burning. It was unfortunate, but dear reader, learn from my mistakes and don't flick matches into an abyss while sitting on a spangled lawn chair. It's tempting, I know.

The second book in the Mistborn trilogy. Just as good as the first. I would point out, though, that the series gets darker as it goes along, and it's in the adult section for a reason (nothing R rated or explicit, just... dark). I guess most of the darkest stuff is in the last book, but here's a warning at least.

I finally realized that my book list is alphabetized and that is the reason that this book is at the bottom. It was causing many a sleepless night as I turned over the various possibilities and situations that might cause this book (and its sequels) to end up down here. I now recognize that just because a book is at the bottom of a list, that doesn't say anything about its quality. So if a book of yours ever ends up at the bottom of some list, before plunging into the depths of despair, please check if your last name starts with 'Z'

It was good. Rather short. I've heard that it's pretty much Harry Potter minus a trillion gazillion pages. Of course it is rather odd that it was published before Harry Potter. Very odd. *suspicious eyebrow wiggle*
