review 1: A fantastical, funny and charming book that I couldn't put down till I read the whole book. All the characters - the Hag, the troll, the orphan boy, princess Mirella and her sisters, the sisters husbands, and even the Hag's familiar, Gladys , were all vividly portrayed and each...

review 1: First off, I love Ibbotson's writing. While I prefer her historical romances for me, this is one I know my kids are absolutely going to love someday, and it would be a fun read-aloud. I'm glad I bought it.One thing I loved is how the characters of the Hag, the Troll, the Wizard, ...

review 1: 2.5 stars may be more accurate. I was disappointed because I typically love Eva Ibbotson's books. This is not a favorite of mine by Eva Ibbotson. The story starts off promising. The idea of vegetarian yetis cared for and educated by an English Lady is appealing, but the story doe...

review 1: This is a historical fiction book that is largely a romance, but there is a good plot line besides just that. Tessa is an Austrian princess, but she is a strong republican and all she really wants to do in her life is work in the theater and help to make operas. The book is set i...

review 1: How funny that the last two books I loved are books intended for non-adults. One Dog and His Boy is a new favorite that I will read again and again. Not only is it funny in a very sarcastic adult way, it is well crafted. Every character in it is rounded, even the maid who appear...

review 1: All Hal has ever wanted is a dog. When he asks for one again on his birthday, his parents decide to rent one for the weekend. Foolishly, they think that after two days they'll be able to return the dog, as Hal will have gotten it out of his system. Of course we know that's not...

review 1: I've read only one other book by Eva Ibbotson, A Countess Below Stairs, which I enjoyed greatly. I told a friend I was going to read this one and she said it was the same book. I didn't believe her then; I do now. The heroine was the same, not only personality wise but in look...
