A Wonderful Review on Amazon

New Review on Amazon:
5.0 out of 5 stars I loved everything about Penelope Cole’s Magical Matthew, January 6, 2014
This review is from: Magical Matthew (Hardcover)
“I loved everything about Penelope Cole’s Magical Matthew. The characters were beautifully drawn. The artwork was perfect for this story. The story started with surprises that continued to evolve. Though I wouldn’t necessarily say the “moral” of this story was that magic can’t solve all problems, there was definitely a loose message that parents and caregivers will appreciate: Even without magic to solve problems, we have it within our powers as ordinary human beings to fix things around us by caring, by being kind and thoughtful. The thing I loved most was that it had all the elements of a full-sized novel (frequently children’s books don’t have many of these expected turning points). In particular, there came a crisis point where I was so worried the hero would be defeated and there would be no chance for happiness for him. But the author found the perfect way to resolve the story…and set the stage for a second, magical volume.” ~reviewed by Karen Wiesner, author of Keri is Cute Cute Cute and Cohesive Story Building
