    Kindle marjoriejane.co Õ Masterpiece Epub Ù masterpiece ebok, Masterpiece Kindle “The most important things in a friendship didn't have to be said out loud” Did you think that beetles were unpleasant little creatures whose only talent was to steal scraps of food scare your mom and supposedly survive a nuclear apocalypse? Well think again because Marvin the beetle has one very special talent he is an illustrator That's right he can draw miniatures with incredible talent and this unusual ability will catapult him and his human friend James into an incredible adventureThis book was cute and funny with a wholesome message about the values of respect justice friendship and truth It reminded me very much of the movie Ratatouille which I love The story i

    Kindle marjoriejane.co Õ Masterpiece Epub Ù masterpiece ebok, Masterpiece KindleI read this book out loud in the car while my friend and fellow author Kathy Whitehead and I drove across the Texas plains from Abilene to College Station The rhythm of the prose the pacing the language all come together to create the perfect read aloud I also want to add that there are some small bits of humor throughout that I think might be lost in silent reading But Kathy and I found ourselves laughing out loud in dozens of

    Kindle marjoriejane.co Õ Masterpiece Epub Ù masterpiece ebok, Masterpiece KindleAn engaging story that is part art heist and part The Borrowers with a dash of Metamorphosis Both boy and beetle here are so sweet and endearing I read this when I was pregnant with my son and it is one I would definitely like to share with him when he is older A few parts of the art heist seemed a bit too neat and tidy and sometimes the jump from beetle world to human world was a bit discordant but overall I really enjoyed the story and loved out protagonists Also has some of the best passages I've ever read about the creative process and muse And a nice father son story too

    Kindle marjoriejane.co Õ Masterpiece Epub Ù masterpiece ebok, Masterpiece KindleThe central story of Marvin and Jame's friendship and the art heist are tenderthrilling in turns There is a problem with the pacing when too much time is spent on tangential details too many lists of things that the beetles do or eat or the beetle's lifestyle for example that turtle in the tank chapter does not move the plot along does not come into play later in the story Some trimming and tightening of the plot would have made this one of the better mysteries for children but the tension and momentum is often interrupted by the need to preach I think young readers would have the faculty to deduce some of the messages by the behaviors and thoughts of the participants in the story without being told overtly by the narratorI am not sure how I feel about the gray areas regarding the art theft and the whole lying about Marvin's pictures part especially the resolutio

    Kindle marjoriejane.co Õ Masterpiece Epub Ù masterpiece ebok, Masterpiece KindleMiddle grade art heist mystery narrated by a beetle that can't talk or write in English though he can understand English and tell time I liked this middle grade story better than the derivative chapter book series featuring these same characters mainly because the author had room to develop the characters and their relationships Still I needed James and Marvin to grapple with James taking credit for Marvin's work and talent but that was glossed over too uickly and peacefully a lost opportunity to explore a gray area in a book focused on friendship Also the story dragged in places
