My Review

Amanda is excited to show her friend, Leah (visiting from England), the sites in southern Alberta.

While at the Calgary Stampede Parade, a clown drops a stone with strange markings. Amanda rescues the stone from the road and tries to get the clown’s attention, but he’s gone. She decides to hang onto the rock to see if her Great-Aunt Mary, a famous paleontologist, might know what the markings mean.

Strange and frightening encounters occur while the girls are sightseeing the Stampede, a working cattle ranch, Drumheller with its world-famous dinosaur museum, and Writing on Stone Park- a Unesco World Heritage site. Someone wants the stone back and they aren’t above hurting the girls to get it!

Amanda in Alberta is a fun, page-turning mystery with interesting tidbits of indigenous history along with Alberta landmarks thrown in.

While geared toward the pre-teen age group, this book has something for every reader to enjoy.

I give Amanda in Alberta four lovely kisses- Traveling with Amanda is an adventure!

Robbie Cheadle was born in London in the United Kingdom. Her father died when she was three months old and her mother immigrated to South Africa with her tiny baby girl. Robbie has lived in Johannesburg, George and Cape Town in South Africa and attended fourteen different schools.

My Review

This book is a culinary delight!

Sir Chocolate and Lady Sweet use water from the Sugar Crystal Caves to make delicious treats, but this trip they encounter something very worrisome- the crystals are melting!

In order to save their precious cave they must help a dragon in need of a friend.

This story was sweet (pun intended :)) and teaches us all the value of kindness. The pictures are a fantastic accompaniment to the creative prose, and there is a bonus of some family-friendly recipes at the end.

I give Sir Chocolate and the Sugar Caves Story and Cookbook 5 well-deserved kisses!
