    I am in LOVE with this book!!! How could I not be when the lead

    I am in LOVE with this book!!! How could I not be when the lead character has her birthday at Halloween just like me?! (squeeeee!!!;) Seriously, it is one funny book. So appealing to this mama of three girls and I'd bet to those same three girls as well.;) Here, check this out:

    ...They held hands and kissed as we left, and Bella stuck her finger in her throat like she
    was gagging.
    I laughed, because Bella always made faces when Mom and Dad kissed, which was all the time.
    Mom turned and smiled at her. "Better we kiss than fight, don't you think?"...

    How can you not see a kid finding that funny? And Kimberly was on a roll, throughout the entire book.

    The Good: This is a bad category for me to start because I may never shut up! I have SO much to say about what is good in The Three Lost Kids and The Death of the Sugar Fairy. I shall try to condense it for you. ;) This sounds so like my Paris:

    ..."This is the worst Halloween ever. No one's giving out candy. No one decorated. The lady at
    that house said no one cares anymore."...

    Children would be devastated. How to recover? (Think, think, think...) I know! Keep Trick-or-Treating! Now this is totally my Paige:

    ...Lexie frowned. "Lass and chance don't even rhyme properly."
    Leave it to the smartest first grader ever to pick apart a spooky riddle from a skeleton....

    Well enter the Haunted House and find.... Nope, not gonna tell ya. It would ruin the surprise and you wouldn't want that, right?;) Now don't stress, I'm going to tell you why I love this book, besides the fact that it totally reminds me of my girls. You see, Kimberly writes what she knows and lives - little girls, fun, silliness, fairies, princesses, and the like. Of course there has to be an occasional dragon, ogre, or troll but that makes the story interesting. You learn exactly who each girl is and watch as a parent would as they have this enormous adventure. This is a page turner folks. The next surprise is just beyond the next page and you cannot stop reading it until you solve the answer to the all important question: "What happens next?" That is some writing talent in my opinion.

    The Bad: I might as well have deleted this category and saved the space for The Good. Not one thing to report to the negative on this story. Well done Kimberly!

    The Snuggly: Oh come on...did you really think there would be any Snuggly in The Three Lost Kids and The Death of the Sugar Fairy? :giggle: It's a kids book! lol Just move on...nothin' to see here.;)

    Final Thoughts: This book is a chapter book, intended for readers ages 4 to 9 but you could probably stretch it a year or two either way. Even thought today is Halloween, I am getting my girls this book for sure! So run (or type), don't walk and pick up a copy TODAY!! Those kids you love? They will think you are ice cream with the cherry on top!

    Great to teach your children to work together

    This is a wonderful continuation of the Three Lost Kids series. Maddie is turning ten on Halloween and she and her sisters, Bella and Lexi, are going trick-or-treating. They get all dressed up only to discover that most of the houses just aren't participating. There aren't any other kids out. The homes are dark. That is they are all dark until them come across one that is completely decked out for the season. The three girls get so excited that they run to the house, abandoning their parents. They knock on the door and it opens. What to do? Well being 10, 8, and 6, they decide to go inside the "haunted house." At this point, the kids enter a new world where they are given the task to save the Sugar Fairy who is on her death bed lest Halloween will be forgotten forever. Of course they accept the mission.

    This story is designed to help kids to understand a few things like working together an not to argue with your siblings so much. It teaches a little about the effects of eating too much sugar and a healthy alternative. It's a cute story and fast read.
