Daisy suffers from procrastination—putting off until later, things she should do RIGHT NOW. Her mom nagged, but Daisy had not started the essay that was due tomorrow. Bartholomew Q. accepted no excuses. After muttering a magical mantra, he whisked Daisy off to find fabulous words for her essay. Who knew that Oogledorks, Dynoroars, and wild adventure could be found where adjectives and verbs hung out—not to mention trees that talked. And Black Crow? He was pure evil. Will Daisy gather wonderful words? Will she survive being kidnapped? Absolutely. The Green Fishbait and his henchmen have it under control!
DAISY AND BARTHOLOMEW Q. Review
By Margot Finke
Illustrated by Ioana Zdralea
From the title of the first chapter, “Procrastination is a curse, yet green worms that surprise are worse,” in Award Winning Author Margot Finke’s new book, DAISY AND BARTHOLOMEW Q., I knew this story was going to be a fun read. I was not disappointed.
Daisy’s essay is due tomorrow and the teacher said the students have to use a thesaurus. Daisy has a problem using a thesaurus, so what’s a girl to do? Enter a bright Green Worm named Bartholomew Q. Bookworm (of course, what else could his name be?) to the rescue, and almost anything can happen and does. From the time he appears to help Daisy, there’s never a dull moment. The author has created delightful characters that will have young readers giggling and turning pages to see what happens next. Along the way, the readers just might learn a few new words, right along with Daisy, as they together, discover the magic of a thesaurus.
Cute black-and-white illustrations by Illustrator Ioana Zdralea add a whimsical touch to the story. The question is, will Daisy complete her essay in time? Only Daisy and Bartholomew Q. know, and those who read Daisy’s story.
DAISY AND BARTHOLOMEW Q. would make a great addition to school libraries, school classrooms where the teacher and students can read the book together, public libraries, and of course your own personal library.
The author provided me with a PDF of the book for my honest review.
