    Davin was a book I had picked up at a library book sale you spend about a dollar and could take as many books as you can fit into one bag It is a time in which you merely go crazy grabbing a boatload of books because they are practically free Davin was one of those books I snagged back in college that looked somewhat decent It found its way into my collection surviving the initial purge of my purchase and has been on my bookshelf for ages collecting dust that came with the promise of one day Davin was a book I had picked up at a library book sale you spend about a dollar and could take as many books as you can fit into one bag It is a time in which you merely go crazy grabbing a boatload of books because they are practically free Davin was one of those books I snagged back in college that looked somewhat decent It found its way into my collection surviving the initial purge of my purchase and has been on my bookshelf for ages collecting dust that came with the promise of one day it will be read That day ended up being today.Little did I know that I had picked up a small but wonderful gem of a book It admittedly doesn t look to be much the title seems a little stuffy, and the cover doesn t scream out read me it honestly gives feelings of Indian in the Cupboard However, this tale is so much different than that Davin is a story within a story The book is about Grandma Goddess reading a bedtime story to her grandchildren a story that the authors warmly welcome you to participate in and even invite readers to play along with the tale sipping tea or hot cocoa at the appropriate times The introduction is charming stating how the book should be read aloud by an adult to a child Pure magic the book just drips with it The characters are relatable, and the story that Grandma Goddess tells is enchanting.The story that Grandma Goddess tells starts out with a bizarre fantasy vibe with a ragtag army of cowboys, Indians, knights and world war one army men getting ready to fight a battle It is later revealed that this army is nothingthan an armament of toys living out a campaign as told an experienced by a little boy who lives in London during World War II and is sick with a deadly fever As the child lays ill and possibly dying the toys go on a grand adventure to find a legendary teddy bear named Davin who is known to hill sick little boys of their ailments The toys face off against cats, spiders, a Dark Knight, and the nefarious Captain Blackbeard Not only will Davin help the sick little boy but will save the entire world of toys for toys of course only live as long as there is a child who believes in them to be real.Overall the tale is an absolutely enchanting read and is one of those perfect read aloud stories that adults and children alike get enveloped in I know for me personally, I was reading the tale aloud to myself and my cats because the story was just that much fun, and if I had little ones to read a story too particularly at bedtime, this is a book I would pick up While fast paced, it was a joy and treat to read and had the classic hallmarks of a great children s adventure tale, and is honestly a story that you don t want to miss out on This is cross posted from my Blog

    Out of print but definitely worth tracking a copy down if you have kids who enjoy being read to It s not superbly written, nor an incredibly original story, but none of the kids I ve read it to over my years as a nanny have ever minded It s a sweet tale about a sick little boy and his toys attempt to save him by finding his favorite teddy bear It s a story within a story, being read aloud to the children in the book There are recipes for the cookies they re eating and sharp injunctions t Out of print but definitely worth tracking a copy down if you have kids who enjoy being read to It s not superbly written, nor an incredibly original story, but none of the kids I ve read it to over my years as a nanny have ever minded It s a sweet tale about a sick little boy and his toys attempt to save him by finding his favorite teddy bear It s a story within a story, being read aloud to the children in the book There are recipes for the cookies they re eating and sharp injunctions to make hot chocolate and drink it while the story s being read It s a perfect book to snuggle up with on a winter s night with your favorite little bookworms

    An utterly horrible book I have no idea how this got published The writing is appalling, filled with pretend words and constant repetition of the characters that seem to be nothan filler This book is desperately in need of an editor and a reason for being It was checked out at my library 3 times this year and I thought I d read it to see why Yuck
