Review: If you ever want to make a friend just draw one. See how some drawings with the help of some magic markers bring two people together for a worthwhile cause. The Prairie Pet written by Stacy Laura Lloyd is a book full of adventure with many surprises written for kids 8-10. It is a fantasy book of a lifetime. This is the first book in the Hospital Critterz series and it is filled with a lot of excitement and will keep readers interested throughout the whole book.
In The Prairie Pet, Lily and Max are patients in McPoppers Children's Hospital, but they are anything but friends. However Lily still keeps trying. She starts drawing pictures for Max. Max doesn't like them in the beginning and tells her never to come in his room. But then one night she is awakened by something strange. She realizes that there may be a little magic in the hospital. Will this realization bring Max and Lily together for an adventure?
Stacey Laura Lloyd is a great author who writes amazing books. I can't wait for any future books she might write. If I could make a list of the 100 best books this would be in the top ten. I hope she writes more books in the Hospital Critterz series so the world can have even more joy from her writing. I kept on looking at the note that said the riddle, "A farmer gets food straight from his land, and sometimes he needs a helping hand. But what do you do when a farmer is low? Dig deep inside you and something will grow." That quote had an impact on me because it is saying that everyone is special and anything is possible if you put your heart to it. Lily is a person everybody would want to be because she is pleasant, smart, and is always working for a better cause. She is somebody a lot of people can relate to. It is a good book to read at night because it leaves readers filled with positive thoughts. It is also a very relaxing book to most readers. This has little bit of each genre, but it is mostly fantasy. Any age group can enjoy this book full of surprises. If you like food and life then you will love this book. It is a cute story that will touch the hearts of anyone who reads it. I rate it five stars because this book blew my mind and will blow yours. If I was in a hospital and I read this book I would feel a lot safer and less afraid.
