TOADS is a beautiful entry into gardening on the coast of Maine.
It delivers all kinds of inspiration for healthy, "lazy" gardening without harmful chemicals.

Illustrations are colorful and inviting,
with fun tales about Birds, Bees, Butterflies, Dragonflies, Snakes,
Flies, Wasps, Ladybugs, Worms, Spiders, Owls, Squirrels, and Skunks!

A BLESSING OF TOADS would have rated the full 5 Stars except for the depressing "scientific" details & statistics.

Profusely illustrated with photographs and watercolour sketches, this is a beautiful book. The activities are appealing and achievable, mostly requiring only simple supplies from around the house and normal life skills to complete. Also, I want to be this grandma.

The story is narrated by a 12 year old white girl who is so abused by her single father and two brothers that she doesn't even have a name. She is just "girl." When her hateful family is out hunting one day, a runaway slave about her own age show up hoping for a bite of food. "Girl" ends up running away with Zenobia, and two become fugitives together.
The entire book is the story of their running away, making a few friends, and encountering a few enemies.
The story is well told, and gives a good sensation of slavery and the time persiod, and Lark (as Zenobia names "girl") and Zenobia are sympathetic, likable characters. I would have liked a little more in the way of plot development.… (més)
