First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to think about, circulate, and respond to my request for good books about feminism. A few possibilities came out of all the discussion so I will be sure to post back on here soon with my findings.
Secondly, it’s been a little while since our last review. We’ve been busy reading but not so industrious with our writing so I thought it was time we posted a couple more reviews on the site. We’ll kick the first one off with the following:

Title: Molly Moon and the Morphing Mystery
Author: Georgia Byng
What it’s about: This is the fifth book in the Molly Moon series and has all the usual ingredients: Molly has lots of opportunities to use her special talents in hypnosis, time-travelling and mind-reading but adds a new gift to her CV: morphing. Drawn into a fearsome adventure, Molly and Micky (her twin brother) must become adept at morphing (into such bizarre things as ladybirds, dogs, rats and even the Queen of England) in order to thwart the plans of a group of evil ladies.
Holly’s review: I liked this book because it was adventurous. It was adventurous because of the way Molly and Micky had to finish off the bad guys who were trying to destroy the world with weather stones. I think everyone should try reading this exciting book today. It is funny too in the way that Georgia Byng writes it and puts funny words in and puts funny things that happen to people.
Sam’s review: Once again, I feel unqualified to truthfully comment on this book. Holly devoured most of it on her own (against bedtime restrictions!) so I was totally lost whenever I tried to read anything with her. I just couldn’t follow the plot. But I was glad Holly enjoyed this and I am sure we will be reading more in this series!
