This review contains a minor plot spoiler!

A Familiar Story With A New Twist

Pixie and The Green Book Mystery is a super cute and imaginative chapter book for kids. It introduces us to nine-year-old Pixie, who loves apples, the color blue, Japan, and perhaps most importantly, books. After having a bad day at school, Pixie's mother takes her to their local library. While there, her day quickly goes from bad...to extraordinarily strange. What follows is a fast-paced tale that is perfect for anyone who loves Alice In Wonderland (or similar stories).

Even though I am not the target demographic for this book (I'm 31 years old), I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I only had two complaints. First, it is a bit too fast-paced, but I think that goes back to me not being in the target age for the book. Second, (and spoiler) there is a part of the plot involving electronic devices that I feel a bit wary about. I understand having a preference for physical books (I'm one of those people) but I am just so sick of the war between the formats. Reading is reading..regardless if it is done with a physical, ebook or audiobook and I really hope that the series is not going to go in the "e-readers are evil, physical books are more important" direction. Some of the things I REALLY loved about the book include the illustrations done by Encarna Dorado (they are super adorable and quirky) and the recipe at the end of the book (which is super yummy). I also really like Pixie. She is incredibly relatable and I can't wait to get to know her better in the next book!

*I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
