Adventure... True adventure creates the best stories to tell. If that is a correct statement, Marvin will be the leader of the rac...onteurs for the rest of his life. When Dave Howard was thinking of a new story, he wanted to honor his mentor, or as Dave would say, “tormentor”, Walter “Helm” Horosko. Helm was known to say things like “Is your name Xerox? If I wanted a copy I would have copied it.” “Is your name Kodak? If I wanted a picture of it I would have taken a picture.” Helm pushed Dave into painting and sculpting as well. He told Dave to work outside of his comfort zone. He said “Paint what you feel not what you see.” Helm and Marvin state “Be yourself don't try to become someone else. Let them be themselves and you be you.” Remember, you should be an individual. Be you. Marvin wants to be a magician, not a musician, nor a beautician. He does have a love for magic all inclusive. His ways of fnding it becomes all intrusive. Meeting some interesting folk along the way, sometimes friends, sometimes prey. There is a Marvin and his friends in all of us. The wonderers, the dreamers, the helpers, the ones who show you and the ones who tell you. The idea of a true adventure isn't gone because of the internet or television. Adventure is in your heart, your mind, and your soul. Someone who is a wonderer and dreamer is Dave's pal, Larry. He is a writer of the fake and the fun, the weird...the underdogs. Larry has written thousands of articles for various publications from print to digital media outlets. He is no stranger to the written word. Dave called on his buddy for some insight into the story that was to become “Marvin The Magic Mouse”. They worked together, as they have done many times, to create a book that is most certainly not just for kids. With a versatile list of words, an exciting adventure that features twists, turns, and hanging-by-your-tail action, this may be the most exciting book on the planet! Take that leap. Marvin did. You can as well. Find the you that only you can be! “Maybe there is another who sees life not as a fickering candle but as a torch that can illuminate an undiscovered world.” -Jimmy Buffett, A Salty Piece of Land read more

When wishing for magic, it's hard not to wish for too much. If Jane, Mark, Katharine, and Martha had stopped to think—oh, if they had only stopped to think!—they would have ordered magic by the pound, or by the day, or even by the halves as they had in Half Magic.

Suli discovers she too has inherited the shape-shifting ability; she learns to fly and to talk to animals.Then the witch makes a terrible demand: Suli must live with the witch as her apprentice. If she doesn't, she’ll never see Tala again. But if she does, she’ll be called a witch for the rest of her life.“The two things I dreamed of doing as a child were to fly and to talk to animals. This marvelous children’s book brought this reader back to that happiest of times when everything was possible and wishes could come true.” — Ginny Rorby, winner of the American Library Association’s Schneider Family Book Award for her novel, Hurt Go Happy, a novel about a chimpanzee who uses sign-language."Forest has created fascinating world-building here. The system of magic in The Third Kind of Magic－Seeing, Healing, Voice－are unique to me, particularly the history of the Sigur folk and their shapeshifting ability...These concepts are imaginative and intricate, making the story much more intriguing with its fast-paced plot. The characters’ struggles and flaws reflect on an important message; people fear what they don't understand and they judge the things they fear. Young Suli detests witches, but wants to become as powerful as them to protect her family. As a mentor, Tala is doing her best to teach Suli about the difference between magic and witchcraft to change her judgment and learn the old ways of their family. I gravitated to the well-defined and memorable Tala instantly and I liked the twist in the plot regarding the witch. Overall, this magical, coming-of-age fantasy tale is a solid read and explore its themes and concepts deftly to keep young readers interested. - Reader's Favorite ReviewA story for those who love to see strong girls learning to find their place in the world, while helping others, with enough action and suspense to keep the reader guessing. read more
