Book Synopsis

BUSTER, a small-town football hero, turns pilot during WWII, with an ego to match both titles. His attitude grows as he gets outside his comfort zone piloting C-47 troop an cargo carriers from Labrador, Greenland, The Philippines, China and all around the world. His letters are a one-way communication showing his journey as his mail could never catch up with him. This left him to write what was on his mind every day.

Through his letters and poems from his sister, Ruby Lee we learn the family dynamics that made him into a man. While remaining true to his high school sweetheart he married prior to leaving on his tour of duty, Buster learns his imperfections determined to me a man of honor and compassion. His death is met with no regrets.

The author bounces back between his letters, his family stories, and his ending times to build his character in multiple dimensions. From the baby with no-name that dethroned Ruby Lee, to hotshot flyboy, husband, father, corporate big-wig, and finally “Old Dad,” Buster makes a statement of what it takes to be a good man.

Reader’s Favorite 5 Star Review by Mamta Madhavan

Bart’s Escape Out the Gate is delightful and has an excellent message for young readers, that of being responsible and fixing things which have been broken. The illustrations are vivid and lively and they make the characters and story come alive. Parents should read books like this to their children, and tutors and educators can use this story for read aloud sessions in classrooms because of its lovely message. 

Sample: That’s when everything that could, went wrong. He was making trouble for everyone, so I set out on my quest to catch him.

Reader’s Favorite 5 Star Review by Erin Nicole Cochran:

I don’t know if this will be true of everyone, but I burst into tears at the end of Lisa Reinicke’s Wings and Feet. I’m not sure how a short children’s book was able to bring me to tears so quickly, but it was definitely a cathartic experience. The circle of life was touched upon, and I’m a lover of all creatures great and small, so maybe that’s why. There was something about this book that made me think of The Last Unicorn and of The Land Before Time, but I don’t want to give everything away about it. You’ll have to find out for yourself just how heartwarming it is. One of the best children’s books I’ve ever read.

Sample: I won’t let you fall as I run through the trees. I’ll hold you close, even if there’s a breeze. The difference won’t matter, between wings and feet, since we are good friends and our friendship runs deep.

He was full of personality and everyone loved him, especially as he sang his little “oink” songs. Arnold had one major problem, he loved to eat and everyone loved to feed him. He learned that veggies and exercise are good for him and that an occasional cookie was a real treat.

Reader’s Favorite 5 Star Review by Mamta Madhavan:

Arnold The Cute Little Pig With Personality is adorable and children will love Arnold’s character even more when they get to know that it is based on the author’s cute little pet pig. The pictures also breathe life into the scenes and make them vivid to young readers. I like the manner in which the author weaves in the message of eating healthily and exercising through the story of Arnold.

Sample: Arnold began to wander out of the yard in search of more food. He would visit the neighbors, singing his little oink song.

Reader’s Favorite 5 Star Review by Emily-Jane Hills Orford

Lisa Reinicke has written a charming Christmas story in David’s Christmas Wish. Written in rhyming meter, the poem unfolds much like the much loved and very famous poem, “Twas the night before Christmas.” Not only does this delightful story capture the imaginative mind of a child, it also shows children how much parents love them and are willing to go to great lengths to grant their every wish. Complete with lovely illustrations by Scot McDonald, this story has the potential of being a popular Christmas treasure for children, young and old. For aren’t we all children at heart?

Sample: In front of the house were drifts of new snow, their car was invisible somewhere below. So Dad started digging as fast as he could, but soon realized his plan was not good.
