MY REVIEW: (LAWonder10)
This is a silly but cute story of a girl who cooks for the King and loves her family. When the king came up with an idea which would separate her from her family, Catalina had to come up with some ideas of her own.
The illustrations, done by Diane Cojocaru, were very bright and colorful and done very well.. The "busy" images and colors will capture the attention of toddlers and early elementary.
This will surely delight "little ones" during "story hours" or Summer Reading Programs for ages 3 to 7 years old.
I offer a Four and a Half Stars rating.
*This book was gifted me with noe request for a positive review. This is my honest review.
Patty Costello lives in Boise, Idaho with her husband, a crazy awesome toddler, a dog named Pippa, and a dog named Spencer. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of St Thomas and a PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Minnesota. She currently works in higher education. Catalina and the King’s Wall is her first book. At all hours of the day (and night) she can be found standing at her desk, helping her university run smoothly and working on her next story.
