A Review of Carahil's Busy Morning by Ren Garcia

Carahil's Busy Morning: Atha's Tea PartyCarahil's Busy Morning: Atha's Tea Party by Ren Garcia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"Carahil's Busy Morning" is sci-fi/fantasy writer Ren Garcia's first venture into children's fiction, and he did it well. This story stars one of the most beloved characters, Carahil, from Garcia's adult Elder League series.

Carahil is a cosmic spirit, who usually takes the form of a big gray seal, but he's also a frustrated dad in this story. Six of his seven children, he discovers one morning, are missing their faces! Carahil and his endearing wife Mabsornath (Mabs for short) have to figure out what happened, and they soon discover their mischievous daughter Atha has something to do with it.

This is a very unique story for children-full of magic, fantasy, and family conflicts that teach good lessons about getting along and keeping one's promises. Artists Carapalou and Ricardo Ayala have filled each page with vivid, eye-catching illustrations that both parents and children alike will be sure to remember.

I would recommend this book for kids (and grown kids) of every age. Grab your copy today!
