An engaging, simple story with a slightly overhanded romance. The choices are all guided so that one can easily make all the right choices which perhaps makes the story feel more natural and less jarring, less lucky. The world certainly feels bigger and left me wanting more (in a good way). The romance plays prominently throughout the story though there is never anything questionable (butt shots, lusting, sexual tension, etc.)
The earliest I’d pull this out, is for a 2nd-3rd grade reader that is ready for some romantic themes.… (more)

The Spell of the Winter Wizard is a children's, middle grade choose-your-own-adventure stylel book that is Number 11 in the Endless Quest series. It is a Dungeons and Dragons Adventures book also, which is what caught my attention when it landed in our Little Free Library. I'm a latecomer to Dungeons and Dragons and trying to learn the basics of it, thanks to my husband. Even as an older adult, I thoroughly enjoyed this adventurous quest! It had all the elements of a fairy tale and oh, so much magic! The path I initially chose was pretty mellow and just turned the bad guy, the wizard of winter, into a flower and saving my stepfather, the good wizard. My character is a young girl whose stepfather good wizard has just been whisked off by the evil wizard of winter and my cat has been turned into a reindeer.

After my initial chosen adventure, I went back and read through the entire book, with all of the various outcomes. The author's imagination is vast and the book contains talking clams who sail boats and trees who bleed when their limbs are cut off, and many, many other creative and magical creatures throughout. The situations seem endless. Many end in doom and death, but hopefully you choose correctly and wind up with a happy ending!

Young Hannah has been chosen to help others and her angel friends guide her on the journey. Hannah makes new friends as she helps those that seem like they are alone in their struggle. In Mardi Gras Mix Up Hannah is led to a young boy in a wheelchair who has run away because he does not want to leave his home.

I like chapter books like this. It is a sweet short story not made too easy. It reminds me of Touched By Angel for kids. This was the first one in this series I had read. I could follow what was happening but I did feel like I would understand the reason for angels if I read the first book. Hopefully one day I will.

The only downside is that I feel the angels are not in the book as much as I thought they would be. Everything is kinda put on Hannah’s shoulders which is kinda rough for a preteen.

Hannah and the Angels is a great series for kids ages 5 and up. I would also recommend The Fairy School series by Gail Carson Levine.
