What a delightful picture book! Bear is just a lonely postman who gets no letters. Until he invites some critters for a Christmas party! A super charming book with great illustrations.
Another great book from Rainbow Rowell. I really enjoyed Echo & Park, and was excited to read the author's follow-up novel. While I preferred Echo to Fangirl, I still found Fangirl a fun and refreshing read. Very funny narration and dialog.
Here's a synopsis of the book from the author's website:
"When out-of-shape IT technician Roen woke up and started hearing voices in his head, he naturally assumed he was losing it.
He now has a passenger in his brain – an ancient alien life-form called Tao, whose race crash-landed on Earth before the first fish crawled out of the oceans. Now split into two opposing factions – the peace-loving, but under-represented Prophus, and the savage, powerful Genjix – the aliens have been in a state of civil war for centuries. Both sides are searching for a way off-planet, and the Genjix will sacrifice the entire human race, if that’s what it takes.
Meanwhile, Roen is having to train to be the ultimate secret agent. Like that’s going to end up well…"
This is a great novel! A wonderful mystery! I love this series by Indridason. Detective Erlendur is so solemn and likeable. I higly recommend this book, and the the two in the series that follow it: Silence of the Grave and Voices.
This is a good feel good holiday film! It's pretty quiet, and is a subtle take on Christmas. Highly recommended.
