Reader's Favorite Five Star Review for Powder Monkey

What a way to greet the day!

My historical fiction children's book, Powder Monkey, was submitted to Reader's Favorite yesterday for a review. Expecting a 10 week turnaround, I was pleasantly surprised to receive notification of the review.

Reader's Favorite Book Reviewer, Lit Amri has bestowed me the honor of a Five Star review. I'm over the moon!

A snippet... "Donna M. McDine's ability as an excellent storyteller is undeniable. Worthy praise goes to illustrator K.C. Snider for the beautiful and nostalgic style of illustrations." 

Please visit Reader's Favorite for the full review. If so inclined please leave a comment and/or share with your social networks.

Wishing you an inspirational day!

Thank you!


Best wishes,
