I’ve had opportunity to read and comment on two children’s books these past few months. Both show great potential. The first one is by Eve Culley and is called, “Adventures in Barn Town”. Unfortunately, neither of the authors have completed an author page, so I’m unable to give you more information or show you a photo of them, which is such a pity.
While I’m on the sideline subject of visibility, I would like to mention that I’ve had to look very hard for some of the authors’ websites who are on my TWEET SUPPORT LIST – some of the links presented on twitter do not work, but I wanted to find you. Can you imagine if others – potential customers and/or readers were looking for your beautiful faces and well-written children’s stories – how would they get to know you without accurate information? Fortunately, our Rave Reviews Book Club encourages us to be aware of our author brands and Social Media presence.
Adventures in Barn Town by Eve Culley
Welcome to Barn Town where the residents are friendly and there is mischief and mystery around every corner. Things are changing in Barn Town and Ol’ Stripe is keeping his eye on the new arrivals and the current residents in an attempt to keep the peace.
“The author, Eve Culley, sent me a copy of this lovely, entertaining story told by Ol’ Stripe, Barn Town resident, in her book entitled, “Adventures in Barn Town.” The author has a smooth writing style which I like and which makes each new animal adventure easy to read to younger listeners. My grandson who is seven also likes to read and so he read a few of the adventures by himself. However he battled ever so slightly with the print being a bit too close together. I personally would have liked to see more illustrations as well as “hear” Ol’ Stripe’s conversations with other creatures who come to the farm – a bit more showing, a little less telling – even though Ol’ Stripe has a very descriptive way about him! Nevertheless, I always appreciate a traditional children’s story told from the heart, so based purely on the quality and contents of the stories, I recommend this book as a great bedtime story for younger listeners.”
