    "Animal Farm is a shocking but effective tale of politics and morality. The book manages to pack a lot about human nature and history into a slim and meaningful volume. It is not only an exploration of our past, but also a warning about our future; highly recommended to anyone cynical of revolution."

    "I remember reading this book when I was in middle school and I fell in love. I decided to buy it for my daughter (only after reading it again myself) and I can't believe how well it still holds up. Sewell's novel brings a tear to my eye. It feels so genuine, the emotion feels real. Please do your children a favour and show them this book!"

    "The One and Only Ivan was a wonderful read, and a bit emotional in certain parts. Obviously, it's written for children, but it's also an enjoyable read for adults as well. It can also be used as a springboard for various topics if you happen to be reading it to children. "
