About this deal

Really, how can any baker resist a title like that, along with the lure of an enthusiastic but somewhat unreliable sourdough starter named Bob? But uh, the secondary character I might have developed a really bad crush on was head of the guard Joshua. The other downside (it’s all downsides) of Ursula Vernon being not as famous as she ought is that my library never gets any of her books — infuriating! Both funny and completely believable, the way Mona’s desperate efforts to save the day made this a gripping read so that I stayed up far too late to discover what happened.

Mona is a very reluctant hero, wanting “to make really good sourdough and muffins and not get messed up with assassins and politics” — and she would much rather not have to do anything heroic because really, that’s something required of adults. She has a lump of sourdough and a gingerbread man as funny sidekicks, and also makes friends with a street kid who teaches her how to survive when things suck. Fue un libro adorable de leer, me gusta como puede estar dirigiendo a un público de 10-14 años y aún así tener escenas de acción increíble, muerte y guerra. There are other wizards in the city of Riverbraid but they are similar to Mona with specific abilities or not that powerful at all.The supporting characters have fantastic depth and personality which really blends well to create this fabulous story. After all, when Leia talks about Obi-Wan being her “only hope” at least her expectations are fixed on a grown up.

There should have been so many grown-ups who should have fixed things before it got down to me and Spindle.I liked that these people (and the other wizard…no, not Elgar) supported Mina and helped her realize her full potential, even though the need for this was literally because of them.
