I am such a fan of librarians and booksellers! I wouldn't have been able to finish my first book without their guidance and reference skills. I'll be highlighting different heroes and heroines in the coming posts.

I thought I knew Baba Yaga. I was wrong. Baba Yaga, in Gregory Maguire’s Egg and Spoon, has sass and wit! You’ve got to meet her! Here’s the pith of the plot: Spoiled rich girl, honorable peasant girl, and a misunderstood Russian royal join forces to save the world.  Why is the world in trouble? Eggs! The accidental switch of two eggs (a priceless, if tasteless Faberge, and the priceless, immortal Firebird) It’s funny, mysterious and archetypal.  grownups (that’s me) will gobble it up.

The South Island of NZ and the INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE OF THE YEAR 2013. What could be better? Page Blackmore Booksellers is in Nelson, NZ and within 30 minutes, with the help of these three ladies, I found new three books. (I actually ended up buying 2 more...by a British MG author).I'll post that review in a few minutes. The store is like a gem. Small, brilliant, unique, like an independent bookstore.
