Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...

So, QUICK NOTE...blog is pretty much shut down at the moment. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. So, reading and blogging (as much as I adore it) have to take a back burner. My apologies to any tours or promised review dates through the end of the year. As of Nov. 30, 2018, I've finally reached a stage in all this chaos that I feel that I can try to take a few baby steps back into the blogging world. A post here, a post there, and next year...who knows. Stay tuned...

STORYBOOK SUNDAY: The DISNEY HYPERION Whirlwind Edition...

HI guys and gals!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.


We're celebrating another day of bookish fun with Storybook Sunday! For those not up to speed on the post, I read a lot of great storybooks and thought, why not give them their own day in the sun. Hence, Storybook Sunday! Feel free to join the fun and create a post on your own site with the same name. I'd love to see any linked up in the comments! Anywho...back to the matter at hand.

Today, we're exploring the far reaches of space, preparing for unknown arrivals, and celebrating those differences that bring us together with a Disney Hyperion whirlwind edition of Storybook Sunday.  Why the whirlwind?  Well, time has been short in my neck of the woods, and while the reading has happened, there's a few titles stacked up that need posting post haste and they all just happen to be from none other than, Disney Hyperion...thus, a collection of wondrous tales for you and yours to explore.  Sound good?  Then let's get this party started...

What do you say about a book that expresses itself through imagery versus words?  As it turns out, a lot.  This was a beautiful story that reminds us that words can bring us closer, but they are not the only way to build or nurture a connection worth all the love in the world. The images are astounding with both styles vibrantly leaping off the page, while the limited words allow readers to forge their own bonds with this ultimately dynamic duo.

From cover to cover, this was a grand adventure filled with mysterious messages, hidden dangers, and a WHOLE lot of heart!  Jo's Dad has a unique job....making sure messages in bottles get to their intended recipients.  But what happens when the messenger is sick?  Who's going to take over the reigns and get the job done?  Jo?  Oh no...she's got a massively active imagination and let's face it, you can't exactly see what's below the seas now can you?  Right, so there you go...but if not her, than who?  This charming tale reminds us that sometimes it's not about us or our fears, but about the greater good and the ability to help a friend in need is a great thing indeed.  Be sure to check out the artwork that adorns each page as it's truly magical...and don't forget to look for the "undie" cover for another surprise!

A great choice for the reluctant big brother/sister, with some DINO-mite fun!
Arnold is content being one in a million and fighting space battles all the live long say, but what's this?  Mom and Dad brought home an...EGG?  Egads!  It's unwelcome, it's not needed, it's...un-predictable because WHO KNOWS what's REALLY in there?  While planning for the worst, Super Saurus forgot to prepare for something else entirely...THE BEST...and in this case, that unexpected surprise tops them all.  Along with brightly colored full page illustrations, this is one adventure the whole family can enjoy, from the tallest to the smallest.

What do you do when a spaceship lands in your backyard and the aliens within...want to use the restroom?  *blink blink*  Why, you let them of course and then invite them back for dinner, or at least that's what Shirley does despite the trepidation her husband, Moe, feels towards the whole situation.  I mean, geesh Moe, where are your manners?  (LOL!)  What happens next involves some people in pretty high places and a whole lot of spaghetti, but that's for you to discover.  What I will say is that this unusual little book does a good job of reminding us to seek the good in everyone and always be kind...you can't judge a book by its cover, nor an alien by their accessories!

The sequel to COMPANY'S COMING actually ranked higher in my book than the first.  We pick up just where we left off....the dinner party is over, all the "guests" have gone home, and the alien visitors want to take Shirley and Moe to their home planet...but it's not exactly what you think.  A case of mistaken identity, a few ray gun shots, and a whole lot of meatball making magic later, and we close scene with a tear filled goodbye, and a reminder once again that not everything is what it at first appears to be, and everyone deserves a chance.
