A Lovely Review

I have some more entertaining, or at least what I consider entertaining, and artsy, or at least what I consider artsy, pictures of Macbeth, along with a nice behind the scenes description of what it's like to be in a play (for those of you who may not know) to post here. But right now I wanted to post a truly lovely review of Alex from the Canadian Materials Magazine website. By now I'm sure you all know my appreciation of well written reviews (not simply when they are good towards Alex, but rather when you can see real talent behind the writing itself), and this is definitely one of them. Maybe I should start a review site reviewing reviews!

(And yes I acknowledge that I am a little unfair to well written negative reviews in not posting them, nor praising the talent behind them - and there is most definitely talent to be seen in some of them too - but I mean . . . this is my blog after all, and I like the positive stuff!)

So here is the lovely review by
Caitlin Berry: Alex review

Yeeha, great review, and well deserved!

And she picked one of my favorite passages to highlight!

It's true- kids know that there is darkness and sadness as well as happiness. You nailed both. And it's funny too!

(I'm glad it took us almost two months to read it. We only read it together when we had time and could really savour it.)

Great review. And I don't blame you . Why promote a less that favorable review on your own blog. Besides, you can never please everyone.
