Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
From the first release to this the fourth, Harriett has been a HOOT! The stories are adventure filled with danger around many corners as she tackles fairy tale after fairy tale of evil intent...all aimed at her at some point or another. Good thing she's got the bravery thing down pat and it doesn't hurt that she kept the GOOD part of her initial curse. Don't know what I'm talking about? Well then, you've got some catching up to do. ^-^ Anyway...
So, here we are facing the worst enemy yet...a pushy salesman.
No, really! He's selling magic beans and we all know what THOSE lead to...and Harriett is too smart to even think of accepting that offer, but what to do when your trusty battle quail gets his beak into things. Yeeeaahhh...better get a really sharp axe or prepare to climb because this puppy isn't coming down on its own, but that doesn't mean something else won't....dun dun dunn...
Seriously guys, this book rocked!
Harriett was at her hamster best, swinging into action, taking charge, laughing in the face of danger...okay, quietly at first because really, if you don't have to wake a giant, you don't want to wake a giant. The new friends she makes are right in tune (HA! Inside joke!) with her, the appearance of old friends was a genuine surprise but so well timed, and the dangers slayed carefully enough for the intended audience leaving us with a spectacular ending...well, for now anyway.
So, if I haven't gotten the point across yet, I LOVE THIS SERIES and this release is no exception. The author practices her craft to near perfection, giving us not just another bookish entertainment option, but a heroine to count on when times get tough.
