|Two wonderful books for kids of all ages: 'The Foxes of Caminus' by Laura Burroughs and 'I am Angelo' by Ekaterina Yuvasheva. Both books have been reviewed at Magic City|
These two books were recently reviewed at Magic City Morning Star and although I provided the review for only one of the books, I actually read both of them. Both books lay a type of 'Harry Potter' foundation upon which to create quite different stories, both from each other and from the 'Harry Potter' series. As the 'Stand-in-Editor' of Magic City I am honored to have been able to share some personal emails with both M/s Burroughs and M/s Yuvasheva.
When I approached Jarod Chen to do the book review for 'I Am Angelo: Sense of Direction,' I knew nothing about the book and had no idea what type of review Jarod would write. (Jarod is the author of the four part Gothic Fiction series published a few years ago here at Magic City.) I therefore sat down to do a quick examination of the book, and found myself hooked by the story. Although there were some literary and grammatical problems in the book (concerning which the author and I have been having some discussions), the story itself is really good and lends itself to a series of both books and movies.
M/s Yuvasheva, a Russian immigrant, has also been generous enough to write some articles for us here at Magic City in relation to her life in Russia and America. (An Immigrant's First Impression)
If you like Harry Potter and other similar fantasy stories you will thoroughly enjoy both The Foxes of Caminus by Laura Burroughs and I am Angelo: Sense of Direction by Ekaterina Yuvasheva
