  1. My reactions to these:

    I really liked The Cheshire Cheese Cat, Driscilla's Halloween, Grace for President and Nic Bishop Butterflies and Moths.

    The Case of the Lost Boy, Strega Nona's Gift and Never Smile at a Monkey seemed fine, but I didn't love them.

    Only read a couple of chapters of Runaway Twin before abandonning it (due to age of protoganist and daughter's recommendation).

    Obviously, more reading to do!
