Son (2012)

An interesting wrap-up to The Giver series. Several unanswered questions from the previous three books are answered in this book, but I have to admit I was a bit disappointed in the ending (what else is new). The ending, for me, seemed rushed, thrown together, lets just quick knot up a few of th...

Son (2012) by Lois Lowry

Le bal d'anniversaire (2011)

A sympathetic but bored princess is approaching her 16th birthday, at which point, under the traditions of the kingdom, she'll have to marry one of three appalling suitors (or four, depending on how you count). To distract herself from this unhappy future and stave off boredom, she goes slumming...

Le bal d'anniversaire (2011) by Lois Lowry

The Birthday Ball (2010)

Princess Patricia Priscilla is about to turn 16 and have her birthday ball – the one where she must choose a suitor. She’s trying not to think too much about this, but there’s little else for a princess (in her kingdom, anyway) to do. After talking to her maid, the princess decides to sneak out...

Like the Willow Tree: The Diary of Lydia Amelia Pierce, Portland, Maine, 1918 (2011)

As I first began reading this book and they described the Shaker lifestyle I thought "Oh God! I could never live this way". But as the story goes on, like the main character, I started to appreciate the peaceful way these people lived trying to work with themselves and make life better for the pe...

Sacrées souris ! (2014)

This was a cute book for older children. It had nice artwork. It is about a group of church mice, and how they survive in a church. They clean up the crumbs and the spilt wine, chew off loose threads from the ministers clothes. They fear the Great X, but they have a great exodus when the time...

Sacrées souris ! (2014) by Lois Lowry

Bless This Mouse (2011)

Maybe 2 1/2 stars. The reader on the Book on CD was excellent, and for me was one of the few saving graces in this book. I haven't found Lois Lowry's later works to be consistent with the quality I enjoyed in years past. This book had the potential to be great, but I objected to some of the c...

Bless This Mouse (2011) by Lois Lowry

Crow Call (2009)

Beautiful illustrations with a great story line. Crow call is about a young girl who is reunited with her father. For the first time Lois and her father goes fishing when he comes home from War World II. Lois is nervous about being reconnected with her father which is something all children go th...

Crow Call (2009) by Lois Lowry

Messenger (2006)

This book was terrible. And stupid.It pains me to say so, because (as everyone likely knows by now) The Giver is one of my most favorite books of all time. In this book, we get to see Jonas again (and even Gabe, for a moment) so I thought for sure it would tie things together and give me some emo...

Messenger (2006) by Lois Lowry

Gossamer (2006)

Not your typical tale. Of course, Lois Lowry and the word, typical, don't go hand-in-hand. Original... Great writer... Risk-taker... Those are words I associate with her. Pick your superlative. But typical? No way. This tale has more echoes of surrealism than realism with surprising juxtapositi...

Gossamer (2006) by Lois Lowry

Anastasia on Her Own (1986)

Anastasia is a slightly bookish, very organized young girl who ends up having to figure out how to manage the household when her mom leaves for ten days. At first she thinks it will be easy; she's got it all figured out how she and her father will run the house (and take care of her brother, Sam)...

Anastasia on Her Own (1986) by Lois Lowry

Stay!: Keeper's Story (1999)

The One Hundredth Thing About Caroline (1983)

While this book was entertaining, I feel it falls short of Lois Lowry's other books. It was predictable and kind of silly, but one must keep in mind that this review is coming from a grown woman reading a youngster's book. However, I do feel that Ms. Lowry is way more talented than is revealed ...

The One Hundredth Thing About Caroline (1983) by Lois Lowry

Autumn Street (1986)

Man, Lois Lowry is just the best, isn't she. The actual very best.This is a really great book. I loved reading it and I'd recommend it to everyone. Even though I'd read a lot of reviews, I didn't quite understand what I was getting. (Basically, all that many reviews can clearly say is, "Oh my gos...

Autumn Street (1986) by Lois Lowry

Anastasia, Ask Your Analyst (1985)

Okay, this cover is horrible but THESE ARE THE BEST BOOKS EVER.Anastasia is hilarious. These books are great. Anastasia's parents are these messy, absent-minded, vaguely bohemian intellectual types, and everything that happens in these books is completely hysterical. This is the one in which Anas...

Anastasia, Ask Your Analyst (1985) by Lois Lowry

In the sixth Anastasia Krupnik book, the protagonist has a full plate, like she always does.

Anastasia's Chosen Career (1988)

I think Anastasia is the reason I've been saying, "Good grief," so much lately. I just adore Anastasia. All of these thoughts that run through her head are the ridiculous things I think. Good grief, the bus will be late and I'll show up to modeling class late and they'll kick me out and it'll be ...

Rabble Starkey (1988)

I did not like this book as much because I didn't really understand the dialect they spoke in. Rabble had a really strong southern accent and poor grammar. She talked in a 'hillbilly' voice. The setting of the book was in West Virginia, so I'm guessing maybe that’s why the tone of the story was w...

Anastasia at Your Service (1983)

Shining On

It was a hot day. I let my-self in and went to the kitchen to get some juice out of the fridge. As I stood there swigging orange out of the carton, I looked out the kitchen window. There, tucked down be-hind the shed, was my mum having a snog with some bloke. They were dappled with shadow from th...

He waited. "You know," his father finally said, "every December was exciting to me when I was young. And it has been for you and Lily, too, I'm sure. Each December brings such changes." Jonas nodded.

Boy, am I exhausted! How was your day?" Lillian Tate asked as she came in from the driveway and put down her briefcase. She sounds exactly like Mom, Caroline thought. "It was okay," she told Lillian.

Anastasia at This Address

Mrs. Krupnik looked up from the table where she'd been leaning over a large sheet of paper covered with an intricate pen-and-ink drawing. "What word?" she asked. "Gwem," Anastasia said. "Gwem?" Katherine Krupnik put her pen down and stared at Anastasia. "Never heard of it. Is it English?" Anastas...
