Book Review "The Waterlady" & Giveaway

I was recently asked if I would like to review a book. My first initial reaction was, "Who, me?!" I still consider myself a baby blogger and let's face it, I am. But I quickly dismissed my surprise and jumped at the opportunity. 

I couldn't pass it up.

The Waterlady
An Ozark Tale


Seeing this is a children's book, I thought who better to help me with this review than a child?


"The Waterlady" is an enchanting tale of a mystical mermaid like creature who lives in a pond. She often finds herself lonely wishing for company. One day she just happens to get her wish.

After reading the book I asked Marissa what she thought. She smiled and said "I like it a lot". I then asked her what she enjoyed most about the story. She told me she really liked the waterlady because she reminded her of a mermaid. She also enjoyed the water ladies visitor, that was her favorite part.
This is definitely a book that a child with a whimsical imagination can get swept away in. That said, I believe my copy of the book was kidnapped by a certain little girl. It is safe to say that she loves this story and I am sure plenty of other children will to. 

Catherine's book is available for sale on Amazon you can also check out her blog along or find her on Facebook as well. 

Just last week now she asked me if I would like to add a giveaway to this review. Of course I would! I mean what good is a review without a giveaway, right?! 

This time of the year when I think about sitting down to read a book I imagine something warm to drink in my other hand. If that cup is red, that is even more exciting. She is supplying the book, I'll buy your cup of coffee all you have to do to win is enter!


See you tomorrow for my Friday 5!

  6. It's always a great thing when children kidnap books to read and love! I'll have to keep an eye out for The Waterlady in a couple years when my 5yo daughter is older.
