this was a very amusing book and I enjoyed reading it.

Hope you enjoy it.

Pig's Don't Fly
This author does manage to write a tale that is quickly engrossing and has interesting characters. I've especially like that what I have read by her has had characters who didn't hold up to the "standards of beauty". (Initially anyways.) Somerdai is a large girl who grew up a little unconventionally and, after the death of her mother, had to set out on her own. I found it very fun how she was able to communicate to animals through the use of a magical ring, because she gained some wonderful traveling companions.

The book did lose a couple of points with me, though, because her character was given stereotypical psychological problem associated with someone who has low self-opinion of putting up with the B.S. of her male traveling companion because she thought him so handsome. There's also a few plot holes here and there as well as a frequency of bad encounters. It was done often enough that you started to see a pattern.

The story's general theme is quite juvenile, but due to language and sexual content, a parent may want to read it first to decide for themselves. But, overall, it was an interesting read with a pleasantly surprising ending.

I enjoyed Mary Brown's book immensely. It was imaginative and entertaining. A girl, a blinded knight, and an assortment of animals all on a quest. I suspect Mary Brown is also
a naturalist, for she writes beautifully and knowledgeably of all the flora and fauna encountered as they journey. Think of this as fairy tales for grown-ups.
