Knister lives in Germany.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2–4—Two uneven beginning chapter books. The first title introduces Lilly, who has a book of magic that one day "just mysteriously appear[s] beside her bed. Just like that." The rest of the uninspired story jumps from one scenario to the next with little in the way of detail or development, as a spell gone wrong results in Lilly's brother sporting a series of different animal ears. Chapter breaks are not well designated, and the story line (which will appeal to younger readers) is mismatched with the vocabulary choices that are sometimes challenging. In the second book, Lilly mistakenly conjures up a young vampire and must find a way to get rid of him before she and her brother become his snacks. Though the text is again choppy and the plot underdeveloped, this second tale has a better flow and clearer focus, and the content and vocabulary are better suited to the intended audience. Unfortunately, there are some typos. The highlight of both books is Frey's vivid, expressive artwork, featuring bold, black outlines and jewel-toned colors that depict a winning red-headed girl and her impish brother.—Nicole Waskie, Chenango Forks Elementary, Binghamton, NY
