Book Review – Wild Rescuers: Guardians of the Taiga by Stacy Plays

I never knew she wrote a book until I met her personally when I took my daughter to MineFaire to meet her favorite Minecraft player

Synopsis

Stacy and her pack of six special wolves – Addison, Basil, Everest, Noah, Tucker, and Wink – have been on countless adventures in their Minecraft videos on YouTube. Now they are embarking on a book series all about what they do best: rescuing animals!

That first rescue had awoken something inside of Stacy. She knew what it was like to lose her own family. And how wonderful it was to be rescued (in her case, by the wolves). From then on, Stacy and the pack roamed the forest during the day, looking for ways to aide their fellow taiga residents. Reuniting families, saving animals from death, nursing the injured back to health . . .

Stacy was just beginning to snore loudly when a bloodcurdling howl rang out from over the quiet taiga. Stacy and the wolves all sat up at attention, every one of them wondering – and hoping – they’d dreamt it. But Stacy knew what she’d heard and it instantly filled her with dread.

So, if you have a young teenager or a child, you would know what Minecraft is. Stacy Plays is a YouTube star who creates videos of her playing Minecraft. I surprised my daughter to the MineFaire that happened back in February and she was stoked that Stacy Plays was there. Almost to the point that she was about to cry.

That was when I realized she wrote a children’s book. So, of course, I bought one and asked for her to sign it lol. I have to say, it was a pretty adventurous book, and it was very intriguing.

Wild Rescuers has drama, adventure, and suspense all wrapped up in a little package. And, it was quite cute to read. I give the book 5 stars for how descriptive and imaginative it is.

A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein

Who has not read A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein? I bet you cannot name one person who has not read this wonderful book.

Synopsis

A Light in the Attic delights with remarkable characters and hilariously profound poems in a collection readers will return to again and again.

Here is the attic you will find Backward Bill, Sour Face Ann, the Meehoo with an Exactlywatt, and the Polar Bear in the Frigidaire. You will talk with Broiled Face, and find out what happens when Somebody steals your knees, you get caught by the Quick-Digesting Gink, a Mountain snores, and They Put a Brassiere on the Camel.

Come on up to the attic of Shel Silverstein and let the light bring you home.

I remember reading this book when I was a child, and would laugh at all of the silly poems that was told. Thirty years later, I picked it up again, and I laughed again. Reading some of my favorite poems to my husband while we sat outside and enjoyed the sun.

Reading the A Light in the Attic brought me back to my childhood, and helped me escape the chaos, and put a smile on my face.

If you would like the feeling of your childhood, please, pick it up, and read it in your fort, in the playground, or even just outside with your family and share the silly poems.
