the adventures of leaf man Reviews
Some silly fairy (read dumb bitch with a wand and some wings) creates leaf man then leaves him hanging. (Ha! See what I did there) Leaf man only has the day to live and while pondering great things ends up helping some lost little girl get home.This read like a golden book ,and I probably would have liked it better if it had been. I was irritated the fairy got bored with her new sentient being and flitted of to play with someone else (presumably Puck).Here's the first line -"One Fall day, a thoughtless fairy played in the leaves." Okay, I gotta admit, that got me hooked. Why are fairies so thoughtless? I kinda wish the author would right another book giving this fairy her come uppance. It could be a good kids' story, right? I also didn't like that Leaf Man got suckered into helping some lost little girl get home. Why are all the women in his life so flaky? I had a hard time deciding if the girl was a toddler or older and spent most of the story wondering why her parents didn't have the police and the neighbors out looking and an Amber Alert blaring across all the media.However, the story has a redeeming ending (which I won't spoil) but was really the best part of the whole book.Recommendations:Yeah, One-click this one and read it to your young kids at bed time, it will leave them warm and fuzzy, but asking for more since it's so short. (There is a teaser for a longer story by the author in the file as well, but I don't do teasers)Don't think I'll look for more from this author, unless of course Golden books decides to pick her up and get some awesome illustrations.I'm giving this three stars.Check out other reviews of free books on my blog 365 days, 365 free e-books http://amydenim.blogspot.com/
While a very short story, I think it's a good story for children. It shows how even small interactions can greatly affect the lives of others. In just one afternoon, the Leaf Man made such an impression on the little girl that she remembered him for the rest of her life. Not only that, but he spent his life in service to others and did not act selfishly.Both great messages to keep in mind, for young and old alike.
This short, very short, story abaout Leaf Man is interesting and very unusual. A lot of it takes place in school and the way the leaf man works with one of the young female characters is great.J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"
Cute 500 word story. Read the free kindle version. Nice little story to retell kids during the fall.
cute short story
The ebook doesn't have good pictures.
Would not purchase this for a gift. The cover is the only interesting part of this children's book.
Not quite "Leaf Man" but good enough for a five- year- old.
Gotta love that bizarre cover--however, the story contained inside is too schmaltzy and silly for me.The Adventures of Leaf Manby Rebecca Shelley
