5.0 out of 5 stars A great writer comes through again., May 13 2013

Having read Elizabeth Haydon's "Symphony of Ages" series I was pleased to see she had another series out. While I purhcased the series not knowing that it was a "young readers" series, I still found it thoroughly enjoyable and quickly finished the forst book and have begun the second in the series. I also loved the fact that she incorporated the same fictional places and races from her adult series into this one. It makes for a great transition, while at the same time, allowing EH to concentrate on her characters rather than trying to create a whole new world. I love that at teh back of the book there are talking points geared towards teachers and parents. I am passing on this book to soem of my nieces and nephews so that they can enjoy teh read as well!

I had a hard time trying to find a CD changer and was pleased to finally find this one. The one and only thing that would have made this item better was if it included a tuner. Otehrwise, all the features work well and was easy to connect to my existing sound system

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is going in my camper!, June 25 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Being relatively new to carving/whittling, this book is a must have. It explains everything from types of wood, knives and sharpening. All the projects have step-by-step instructions INCLUDING photos which really help, there's no guessing as to whether you'e doing it right. It also explains well how to choose branches for carving for different projects. I love that some projects need very little carving and others more so....so depending on your mood, you can choose how much work you want to put into your carving. This book will be part of my camping supplies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough detail, June 25 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Art of Whittling (Paperback)
Realizing that this book was written over 80 years makes it an interesting read, however I found that it seriously lacks in details regarding the how-tos of each project. The hand-drawn "plates" are charming and the tips on choosing wood and knives are great, however explaining how to carve the projects need more. This book would be a good companion if you were taking a class, but as a teach-yourself.....pass on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The griller's bible!, June 25 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pictures of every recipe as well as step-by-step pictures. The simple to understand tutorials on different ways to grill (ie: charcoal vs propane)are very helpful and the abundance of tips ranging from how to freeze your cuts of meat to flavour combinations make us come back to this book time after time. This book contains recipes ranging from your basic steak to breads and desserts.....love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still makes me laugh, Jan. 17 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A classic Christmas movie that I haven't been able to find in stores.....the Griswolds are a family that I love to watch. For those Big Bang Theory fans...see Johnny Galecki (Leonard)play Russell in one of his first movies. You'll recognize many of the classic one-liners and use them over and over again.
