What others are saying about Michele's books:

"From the very first and magical sentence, I was hooked on this novel." Eddie on Kindle, reviewing Manannan's Magic.

"Set in post-revolutionary France, Duval and the Infernal Machine captures the atmosphere of suspicion and intrigue that reigned in Paris at the time. The author does a splendid job of immersing the reader into the darker corners of the city. " Simon on Kindle reviewing Duval and the Infernal Machine

"I have been terrified of the water ever since nearly drowning in Lake Michigan. My wife has tried to teach me to float - with no success - for 40 years. The techniques outlined in this book are easy to follow. Maybe finally, after all these years, I'll be able to swim and NOT be afraid of the water. Thanks Michele, wish you lived in the States so I could get private lessons." Steven on Kindle reviewing Learn to Swim, even if you are terrified.

"An intriguing and haunting short story, which the author says is based upon a real wartime experience. The fitting and satisfying ending will stay with me for a long time. An excellent story." Gunnar on Kindle reviewing Five Lamps.

"Beautiful! Just 12 short pages, but it left me in tears. The author has such a delicate, lovely way with words that the sentences and sentiments were whispered over the pages. I will save this on my kindle to read again." Tina on Kindle reviewing The Carpenter's Bench.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good 31 July 2013
By simpson sherryway - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The 3 stories all have good to very good elements and will satisfy a seven or eight year old as a read aloud. Stories have neither the vocabulary nor grammar for independent reading by a first or second grader and I believe the author must have intended read aloud to be the understanding of the title. The first story has three elements (1) a modern girl; (2) an Irish harp; and (3) an Arabian Nights style adventure. The connection between these elements is very tenuous. The set up of the relationship between Shannon and her magical harp is by far the nicest part of the book. But she does not bring the harp with her on her adventure and it has no role in the solution to the conflict. I had hoped that the harp was to be like the good fairy in Pinocchio or the Psammead in The Five Children and It, a frame for a series of adventures, and the story does have potential to be developed that way. I would encourage Ms. McGrath to do so. But here the two plots smushed together with little reason. The second story is a little engine that could story about a robin, well written and pleasant for a seven year old, easy to follow. The final tale about a Chinese dragon transported to modern Great Britain could be confusing to a second grader. I was a little confused about how the dragon arrived in London. The ethhnic Chinese characters were asian stereotypical. The second generation Chinese Britishers are portrayed as culturally ignorant restaurant drones. I was left wondering how much Ms. McGrath knew about Chinese culture regarding dragons.
