It has been a busy week at Starving Author LLC but I guaranteed a review and thus it shall be! To accommodate my busy eating schedule, today’s Starving Review will be for a little treat of a children’s meal, a one-course snack that comes out of the steampunk kitchen of previous Starving Review chef, Lori Alden Holuta. Will today’s meal match up to previous bites or will it be insufficient to quiet my stomach grumbles?

Before we find out, remember to check the factory rules and be safe at reviewing:

  1. I attempt to rate every book from the perspective of a fan of the genre
  2. I attempt to make every review as spoiler-free as possible

Good morning, my literary foodies!  No doubt you stagger to your computer or tablet, gorged on Thanksgiving turkey (if you’re a United Statesian that is), eager to get another slice of literary pie.  Fortunately, I have just the perfect little tidbit of holiday joy, just enough to fill you up but not leave you bloated!

Before we get to it, let’s sing the Starving Review Canto:

So a good meal and a good book both tend to carry messages.  They can tell us about the chef, they can tell us about the cultures that spawn and inspire them, and they can tell us about the human condition.  Pretty nifty, don’t you think?  Today, we have a middle ages children’s meal that wants to tackle some of those big issues!  Does it succeed?

We’ll find out, but first we have some important news from Starving Review, LLC:

  1. I attempt to rate every book from the perspective of a fan of the genre
  2. I attempt to make every review as spoiler-free as possible

Well, as I said in my Warrior Lore review, that was a tasty treat, but my literary hunger wanted more.  Cracking open my next savory treat, I saw it was a children’s book and also nicely snack-sized, so I served up another plate of book goodness for a full meal and, well, I was pleasantly surprised!  Now, before we get to the meat of the review, it’s time for THE GROUND RULES:

  1. I attempt to rate every book from the perspective of a fan of the genre.
  2. I attempt to make every review as spoiler-free as possible.

So sit back and get ready, it’s time to go back in time to when you were a kid in elementary school and crack open Delilah Dusticle!
