BLOG TOUR: Eye of the North

Hello!

Welcome to my stop on The Eye of the North blog tour!

TheEyeoftheNorth-BlogTourBanner

“When Emmeline’s scientist parents mysteriously disappear, she finds herself heading for a safe house, where allies have pledged to protect her. But along the way, she is kidnapped by the villainous Doctor Siegfried Bauer, who is bound for the ice fields of Greenland. There he hopes to summon a mystical creature from the depths of the ancient glaciers, a creature said to be so powerful that whoever controls it can control the world. 

Unfortunately, Bauer isn’t the only one determined to unleash the creature. The North Witch has laid claim to the mythical beast, too, and Emmeline along with a scrappy stowaway named Thing may be the only one with the power to save the world as we know it. Can Emmeline face one of the greatest legends of all time and live to tell the tale?”

The Eye of the North is an incredible adventure-filled tale of Emmeline and her friend Thing, who have to go and save Emmeline’s parents. There’s baddiesgoodies, boat rides, Paris, peril, capture, mysterious creatures, power hungry doctors and incredibly fun characters. This book is one of those that my kids love – the proof hasn’t stayed on the shelf in school for long!

S4S – Favourite fictional animals

Hello, it’s Sunday again!

Another Sunday means another #SixforSunday. 

I’d like to take a little minute to thank everyone for joining in with my little #SixforSunday meme! If you’ve joined in forever, once or twice, or are thinking about joining in, I am super thankful. You’re all brilliant!

Today’s prompt is:

Favourite ficitonal animals

I thought this would be easier than it actually was, but I managed 6 eventually!

  1. Aslan (The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe)
    I couldn’t NOT include Aslan.
  2. Mr Fox (Fantastic Mr. Fox)
  3. Charlotte (Charlotte’s Web)
  4. Robin Hood (let’s go with Disney’s Robin Hood)
  5. The Gruffalo (he’s technically an animal, right?)
  6. Coco (Sky Chasers)

There we go! 6 literary animals that I adore. I have a particular soft spot for Disney’s Robin Hood and Aslan. 

Share your #SixforSunday with me! Link me to your blog! I’m loving all of the #SixforSunday posts!
