"So," I wonder to myself, "how can a story about a girl in a sultans harem be kid friendly?"
Aside from the setting, Shadow Spinner proved to be a great tale for the kids. There's excitement, suspense and stories within stories. The unlikely heroine with an unlikely talent takes center stage with her candid quirkiness. My favorite part of the book were the mini-lessons at the beginning of each chapter called "Lessons for Life and Storytelling."
Were almost finished and I can't wait until the end.
