Ellie Firestone's "Super Sporty 3," book 3 in the Super Sporty series, is a fun children's book with an imaginative plot and lovable characters.

The story follows the adventures of two horses named Sporty and Harley. In addition to being part of a horse basketball team, they are superheroes who must battle evil robots. There is no shortage of action or adventure in this book!

The illustrations in this book are colorful and cute and are sure to delight younger readers. The text is arranged in short chapters. This book is beyond the level of a picture book, and probably would be best enjoyed by a reader 7 or above, or a younger child with an adult reader.

Overall, this is a great read for young readers who like action, adventure, and horses!

In Search of Spice by Rex Sumner

“In Search of Spice,” by Rex Sumner, is a book that brings together historical fiction, romance, and fantasy to create a story filled with action, adventure, relationships, and endearing characters. The story follows the voyage of a carrack searching for the storied land of Hind, rumored to be rich with spices. 

The journey takes crewmembers to a variety of beautiful lands, meeting a variety of very different people along the way, from friendly to hostile to mysterious. Sumner does an excellent job capturing the essence of “culture.” Although the book is fiction, the descriptions have a historical feel to them, bringing a layer of realism to the book.

The maps are also a nice touch, making it easier to follow the voyage as you read. My favorite aspect of the book, however, is the eclectic cast of characters, especially the strong female characters. Sumner develops all of his characters, even minor ones, my favorite being the intelligent, determine Hinatea. I'd recommend“In Search of Spice" to anyone who likes books that transcend genre and have strong characters.
