STORY-LINE GABE’S PLEDGE BY LINDA HUBALEK:

Gabe’s Pledge is the story of Iva Mae Paulson and Gabriel Shepard.  Iva has loved Gabe for years; she’s waited for him to propose.  On New Years Eve 1886, Iva announces she will sign up with a mail order bride agency;  for she intends to be a bride in 1887.  She loves teaching in Clear Creek, but wants a family and home of her own.  Hoping to push Gabe into proposing, will her plan backfire?

Gabe Shepard, shy and prodding, just can’t bring himself to propose to Iva.  After she kisses him on New Year Eve, he felt a wonderful tinge.  But can he overcome his issues to make her his wife?  Hubalek takes readers back to small town Clear Creek.  Filled with laughter, family help or was it hindrance, a strong woman, and maybe a groom of honor, Hubalek takes us on another wonderful journey in the West.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Welcome back to Clear Creek, Kansas and the people we have come to know and love;  Pastor and Kaitlyn Reagan, their six sons, the Paulson’s, Shepard’s, and all the other wonderful residents of Clear Creek.  A small town, close-knit, ready to help each other in any way they can, and where faith in God’s the backbone of the community.  Linda Hubalek skillfully filled Clear Creek with a variety of characters with different personalities and dreams. I love this series; Hubalek included characters from earlier books, allowing her readers to catch up with their lives.  I am always impatient for the next book in this series; wondering who’s the next couple united in love and faith.

STORY-LINE AND CONCEPT OF THE GRUMPFACE BY B.C.R. FEGAN

In The Grumpface, B. C. R. Fegan author and Daniela Frongia illustrator, crafted an entertaining book for any child.  With a premise easy to follow, the child will giggle and wiggle as they listen to this fun filled book.

A grumpy man became grumpy with a wizard.  The wizard changed him into Grumpface and placed him deep in the dark forest.  Grumpface would have to laugh before he would change back to a man.  He devised a game for the people who wandered into the forest.  They had to complete three task or stay in the forest.  Dan wanted to find a rose for the flower vender, Bella, who he loved.  Going into the forest, he meets Grumpface and laughter follows as Dan tried to complete the three task.

I love rhyming poems and stories; I am sure any child would love to have this book.  The rhyming will catch the adult or child’s attention immediately.  Children will find the rhyming easy to remember and follow.  All children love to have someone read to them; this book is perfect for any time of day as you set with your child.

With illustrations, detailed and colorful, children will love looking at the pages in The Grumpface.  I do not think they will be frighten as Grumpface resembles an old grumpy green leprechaun.  With help from the reader/adult, children will understand laughter can change a person’s attitude and outlook;  the reader/adult should explain Grumpface becomes a different person after seeing Dan’s funny attempts to complete the three task.  The reader/adult can also impress upon the child how the man became Grumpface; an excellent teaching tool.  An adult could sit with the child who’s reading age and explain the concepts of the book.
