Blog Tour: The Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat by Coral Rumble & Charlotte Cooke

My sister Emily’s back again today for another children’s book blog tour! I was excited about this book myself. Did you ever read the Edward Lear poem, The Owl and the Pussycat, when you were a kid? We loved it – I remember we even had an audio recording of it!

This book, The Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat by Carol Rumble and illustrated by Charlotte Cooke, is an adorable adaptation of the classic poem. To make it even cuter, the book was sent with a little packet of bee-friendly wildflower seeds for the garden!

4 Free eBooks to Grab Off the Shelves This Second

The emergence of e-books means you can carry an entire library with you wherever you go. However, until recently, this hasn’t been as easy as advertised because gaining access to these digital books meant purchasing an extra gadget. But, the emergence of smartphones has made this unnecessary, and as a result, the number of e-books available has skyrocketed.

Although many still prefer to use e-readers, such as the Amazon Kindle, you can download the Kindle app on just about any mobile device or even read e-books on your web browser, which makes it far simpler to gain access to new titles.

Amazon’s vast marketplace is also making it easier for readers to access e-books, and, even better, it has given authors an opportunity to publish their work in a more affordable manner. All of this means more books are making it to the marketplace than ever before, many of which are free.  There are thousands of free e-books on Amazon, and within this collection there are lots of great reads.

Here are four to grab off the (digital) shelves this second.
