MY REVIEW

I received a free ecopy of this book from the publisher.

Mrs. Parsley Makes a Delivery and Other Stories is a series of short stories about Mrs. Parsley who helps other magical beings when needed. For example, when the Tooth Fairy has a toothache, Mrs. Parsley delivers money to parents whose children have lost a tooth and explains that they’ll have to put it under the pillow this time because the Tooth Fairy can’t make it. 

The stories are cute and they often teach a lesson as well.  I don’t usually pay much attention to covers (I know, I’m weird) but this one really caught my eye. Not only is it colorful and draws your attention, but it exactly matches the description of Mrs. Parsley and Laptop, her cat.

I definitely recommend Mrs. Parsley Makes a Delivery and Other Stories for children. It would especially be good for children who have a short attention span because the stories are short.
