review The Seven Tales f Trinket.
I realize it s nearly 400 pages but considering the amount Catalogue the Insanity of white space and the fact that this is anddly shaped book which I love it can be read in a couple f hours but I didn t completely fall for Trinket s tale I would certainly keep this book in mind to recommend to the right child and if I don t feel it was amazing I did feel my time was well spent consuming itOriginal review posted at Bunbury in the Stacks I would have given this ne five stars if it hadn t been for the Shrek oh so predictable ending I do love a good cliche and happy ending but thisne was just a little too much The Seven Tales f Trinket is a truly magical story f seven fairy tales told through the eyes Look Alikes Jr. of young Trinket as she searches for her father My daughter loved Trinket and I got a kickut f Thomas the Pig Boy The tales were wonderfully woven together and really made me look forward to reading to my daughter at bedtime She loved this book so much I m pretty sure she ll end up re reading it to herself very soon This lyrical elegant and uniue story provided a wonderful journey ver hills and along sea coasts encountering fortune tellers ghosts pookahs faeries and even a wonderfully kind gravedigger There were beautifully loyal friends and fallible heroes and I Definitely a uniue and Architecture for the Shroud: Relic and Ritual in Turin original book that combinesld world storytelling with a modern heroine s gumption I m a big fan Collecting and Exhibiting Computer-Based Technology: Expert Curation at the Museums of the Smithsonian Institution of the sly humor and the sparse yet elegant prose I also loved the way the author broke up certain paragraphs by putting themn a single line very impactful The interactions with Thomas the Pig Boy provided the perfect amount He Remembers the Barren of comic relief The continuityf themes motifs and certain characters was masterfulBut the constant scene breaks seemed to make the prose unnecessarily choppy And although there were a few laugh The Early Girl Gets the Blood Wolf out loud moments many partsf the book were very dark and sad But that s the way middle grade fiction seems to trend these days I d say this is for the mature middle grader since at times Trinket s voice seems much lder than her years And though ending drags a bit it s definitely worth it to read to the last page The most interesting character was surely the father Anyone
