Welcome

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.

285. Fox On Stage by James Marshall

Fox On Stage by James Marshall.

Rating: 3/5)

(US) - (Canada) - (UK)

1993, Puffin, 48 pgs

Age: 6+

"Another title about Fox and the gang getting up to mischief. This time Fox is putting on a scary play called "The Mummy's Toe" and all his friends have a role - with Fox as the hero."

Purchased a secondhand copy from a thrift store.

James Marshall is a favourite illustrator who has written many, many children's picture and easy-to-read books.  This is a fun easy-reader for the beginning reader divided into three separate short stories.  Each features Fox as the main character and while the stories are not related they do carry a theme of the performing arts.  "Fox on Film" has fox using his video recorder to make movies; "Flying Fox" has Fox watching and participating in a magic show and finally "Fox on Stage" has Fox and friends preparing, and putting on a play for the neighbourhood.
