Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Jasper and the Magpie by Dan Mayfield

Title: Jasper and the Magpie  Jasper and the Magpie

Author: Dan Mayfield

Illustrator: Alex Merry

Publisher: Jessica Kingsley Publishers

Published: November 21st, 2014

Rating:   4/5

This is a story, told in rhyme
Of a boy called Jasper who all the time
Searches and collects things metal and shiny
Some are big, others are tiny

He doesn’t care if they’re dirty or clean
He doesn’t worry where they might have been
His parents worry and try to change his way
Until he has a special birthday

His presents and gifts now celebrate
His interests in shiny things to date
They find a way to work together so
His interest is shared – a great way to go

This book is fantastic and will help others to know
That interests can be shared too as you grow
And working with these interests together you’ll find
You’ll all develop a much better state of mind.

The illustrations are beautiful and dear
Helping make the text meaning even more clear
The story is fantastic and I hope that it will then
Help enjoy special interests together again.

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley too
