    Wish It Were Bettr

    Sample, while interesting, does not contain even one recipe. Other reviews are off topic and useless. So I don'f have enough to go on for me to buy this book.

    Leafbreeze's Destiny Chapter 1 by Deerleap

    "Yay! I won!" Leafkit squealed as she pounced on her brother Puddlekit, who was pretending to be a mouse. "Oof! You're heavy!" Puffed Puddlekit. "Oops. Sorry." Leafkit got off her brother. "Time to go inside kits!" Called their mother Spiritheart. "You too Ivykit." She added to her other daughter who was out in the clearing. "Oh fine." Ivykit grumbled. She stomped into the nursery. Spiritheart tucked her kits into a nest. "Goodnight Ivykit, Puddlekit, and Leafkit." She mewed. "Good night mommy." The kits said in unison. Then they fell asleep. The next morning, the kits heard someone come into the nursery. It was their father Stormclaw! "Papa!" Shouted Ivykit. "Hello kits." Stormclaw purred. Then they heard a warrior named Honeypool scream. "Badgers!"
