Three Mages and a Margarita
(The Guild Codex: Spellbound #1)
 

By Annette Marie

Broke, almost homeless, and recently fired. Those are my official reasons for answering a wanted ad for a skeevy-looking bartender gig.

It went downhill the moment they asked me to do a trial shift instead of an interview—to see if I’d mesh with their “special” clientele. I think that part went great. Their customers were complete dickheads, and I was an asshole right back. That’s the definition of fitting in, right?…

KIDS DAY REVIEW BY LAUREL!

Birds from Head to Tail

Written By Stacey Roderick
Illustrated by Kwanchai Moriya

In this fun informational picture book, children can test their knowledge of birds, one body part at a time. “What bird has eyes like this?” asks a spread showing a close-up illustration of the body part without revealing the rest of the bird's body. “A bald eagle!” answers the following spread, which features an illustration of the whole bird in its habitat, along with intriguing information about its unique body part and what makes it special. Eight birds in all are featured, along with another eight on an additional spread at the back of the book…

KIDS-DAY FRI-YAY! - Lex

Lex

By Dimitris Chatzilias

Lex decides to enter the forest for the first time and discover all the secrets that are hidden in it. Apart from new places, events and creatures, Lex, accompanied by his oak tree friend, explores personal limitations, causes of behaviors, interactions with the environment and people around him, the value of respect in these interactions and, most importantly, the meaning of freedom, which is the central subject of the book. Their roaming is a course towards adulthood and independence through questioning, healthy disobedience and critical thinking. Although the story gives the chance for a deeper level of interpretation for older children, it remains a fun and adventurous read for all ages. Without being heavy or instructional, the book's main goal is to trigger critical thought and constructive conversations; to let Lex's discoveries during his roaming be perceived in a free and personal way by each reader. To inspire children who are just taking their first steps in life with the joy of spreading their own wings and taking their future into their own hands, and also to remind older readers of the excitement of constant exploration, one of the most important ingredients in a joyful life.
