TADA!!! The very first STUDENT review from an amazing student in Japan:
Recent reviews on GoodReads, Barnes & Noble, and other stores:
Thank YOU SO MUCH to all of the reviewers! After all my time in the “drafting cave” and the “revision cave,” it’s a treat to hear your reactions to the finished story.
If you’ve posted a review, please let me know here. I’d love to see it!
Reviews give stories wings–they really do!
*They also keep them books going invisible.*
Thanks to the trouble you took to write and post your reviews, TROUBLE WITH PARSNIPS is on its way to find readers who are looking for just this kind of story.
The people of the Seven Kingdoms curtsy and bow to you!! Hip, Hip, Hooray! (Except Queen Ash, but then, she never thanks anybody.)
May you always have a good book, a snack, and time to enjoy them both!
Just found out from Twitter that PARSNIPS got its very first review on Toppsta, a beautiful UK site that curates children’s books.
A deliciously long review for Trouble With Parsnips showed up!
It is always a good sign when I finish a book in one night. I did it with Harry Potters 4/5/6 & 7; Garth Nix’s Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen; Philip Pullman’s novels were regularly devoured into the small hours; Terry Pratchett had me laughing while my eyes were held open with matchsticks* and now I can add this hilarious and hugely entertaining novel, Trouble with Parsnips to the list.
