A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.

I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

9. Little Pear and His Friends

Little Pear and His Friends by Eleanor Frances Lattimore
Second Little Pear book

Pages: 129
Finished: Jan. 17, 2008
Reason for Reading: next in the series. Dh has been reading this at bedtime to the 7yo and I didn't want to miss out so I read it when they finished.
First Published: 1934
Genre: children fiction
Rating: 4.5/5

First Sentence:

There is a village in China called Shegu.

Comments: Everything I said in my review for the first Little Pear book, holds true for this title also. This time around Little Pear is one year older, now six years old and in the first chapter his new baby brother arrives. Little Pear's adventures are less from naughtiness this time around but more from curiosity and misunderstandings. The writing and illustrations (on every page) are charming and the characters are endearing. An incredibly vivid look at life in a Chinese village in the early 1900s. Highly recommend.

There are two more Little Pear books but neither of them have been reprinted so I am keeping my fingers crossed that ILL will pull through for me.

  1. I've only read one Littel Pear book, and it was an old one from the library. I didn't know any of them had been reprinted. Thanks for the review.
