Adventure, bravery and humor with wonderful characters

JerseyGirl - 3 years ago
Delightful set of adventure tales - loved that one of the main characters is a brave female with a lot of spunkiness. While fun, also includes difficult life decisions, choosing what is right rather than what is easy. Highly recommend this series.

Misleading Description - Not A Hardcover Set

1 out of 5 stars
Would not recommend
SassyMs - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
I can't attest to the quality of writing, because the set was purchased as a gift. However, I can tell you that I was disappointed to find out that the set is a paperback set. Will definitely return.
