Our Review
The MMSAI Kids have come to realize that when a package arrives it’s usually filled with awesome goodies they get to help me review. Early last week when this amazing treasure chest arrived from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Tiny MMSAI Spawn was super excited.

I barely got the package open before she was ripping items out and squealing with happiness, immediately donning the eye patch and the princess crown and asking 567,987 times in five minutes if she could watch the movie.

I’d like to point out that in order to get this photo of the kit all together I had to bribe the Tiny MMSAI Spawn and nearly lost a few fingers. I just want to make sure everyone understands the danger in blogging.

Tiny MMSAI Spawn is a big princess fan, and an even bigger music fan which makes THE SWAN PRINCESS: PRINCESS TOMORROW, PIRATE TODAY an all around perfect fit for her. Aside from the adorable tale of Princess Alise, bored of her family traditions and wanting some adventure in her young life, there’s bonus Sing-A-Long material! A Sing-A-Long people, who doesn’t love those?!

For once Tiny MMSAI Spawn sat quietly and watched, wearing her Pirate/Princess gear and using her adorable design your own telescope.

The MMSAI family will definitely be looking into the other SWAN PRINCESS movies in the franchise.

KOOK tackles controversial issues in YA.

KOOK came out in the UK earlier this year, and was chosen by the Guardian  as their “Teen Book Club Read.” Author Chirstopher Vick recently wrote an essay, on why we shouldn’t protect teenagers from controversial issues in fiction.

About The Book

A deftly and sparely written love story, KOOK is told by 15-year-old Sam, recently arrived from the big city to a cottage by the sea. The last time he was here was when he was four, when his father drowned in a storm.

Sam knows about physics and weather and how waves form – but none of that can prepare him for what lies in store over the coming months, or for falling in love with Jade, the mixed-up surfer girl next door, and with surfing itself.

But Jade is driven by an obsession: finding and riding a legendary huge wave, pictured in a 1916 postcard, that no one has yet discovered.

As the autumn wears on, the story barrels forward with the force of a deep-water wave, towards a heart-breaking conclusion…
