Published: Viking Books for Young Readers - May 1st, 2018

The Smoke Thieves slowly drew me in until I couldn't put it down. The strong voices and the fact that the stories don't seem like one until you realize that they have become one. The plot was fast and entertaining. I loved this book and would recommend it to anybody who loves medieval fantasies. - Kaitlyn, customer age 13

Published: Square Fish - May 10th, 2016

The Novice may seem like the traditional hero fantasy adventure book, but is far more complex and full of many more charachters (good and bad) which contribute to the fast and rocky plot full of pot holes. The traditional hero part of this story attracts many readers while the excellent story telling by Matharu leaves us wanting mroe. - Kaitlyn, customer age 12

The book is about an alley cat that is being hunted by a hunter. Later Aldwyn, (the alley cat), stumbles across a store, that looks like a normal pet shop. But is actually a store that stores familiars. The familiars are helpers, that help young kids master their magic. In my opinion this book is very interesting, and adventurouse [sic]. The beginning of the story hooks you into the book, and doesn't let go until the end. This book takes you througha world of imagination. - Abraham, customer

Just won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography! I've read everything by and about Laura Ingalls Wilder and I still found this fascinating. It describes not only her life and that of her family; but put it into the historical context. Amazing stories, such as the 1,800 mile-long cloud of locusts. - Nikki
