The Funny Adventures of Little Nani by Cinta Garcia De La Rosa ~ Blog Tour


Little Nani is a little girl who likes helping people. However, when she helps people the results can be a bit unexpected. Why is that? Little Nani is a witch! Or at least she wants to be a witch. With her magic wand, she will try to cast different spells to help her friends, but she won't be successful all the time. Follow Little Nani in her funny adventures and meet her extraordinary friends. Funny ostriches, horses that love reading, super-fast turtles, grumpy zombies... Little Nani has lots of friends! You can also draw your own characters! Little Nani is willing to become a good witch. Will she manage to do it? Who knows? Read the stories and discover what happens next!

My thoughts: Little Nani is eight and full of curiosity and mischief.  She doesn't realize that she causes mischief, she just does what pops into her head.

She pulls out her magic wand, even though she has not finished the on-line class, and makes things happen.  Her magic usually leads to misfortune to someone else.  She turns her friends into ostriches and makes a running turtle slow. Her friends soon realize that when she pulls out her wand it is time to run.

The book is written for a younger reader.  Either someone who is just starting to read and enjoy chapter books, or for a child being read to.  The dialogue is silly and would cause children to giggle.  I like that at places in the story the author takes a break and suggests that children use their imagination to draw a picture of  what is happening at that particular point.  She even gives suggestions to help children formulate a plan for their art.

The volume is a compilation of several stories.  It makes it easier for young readers to take it one story at at time.

I received a copy of this book to review.

CintaCinta Garcia de la Rosa is a Spanish writer who has loved the written word since she discovered she was able to read books at age 5. Since then, she has become a bookworm and reads around 100 books every year. She also writes, every day, compulsively, even in the middle of the night. You cannot control when inspiration hits you, can you? She writes in English because she is convinced that in a previous life she was British, so writing in English feels more natural to her than writing in her native language. Yes, she is crazy like that. Cinta Garcia is the author of "The Funny Adventures of Little Nani", a collection of short stories for children, and "A Foreigner in London", a short story published on Smashwords.
