About this deal

I stuck both hands into the soup tureen and tried to convince him that what the world needed was a whole lot more Bob. and every time biscuits were mentioned I was imagining British biscuits - however I think they're the softer more scone-like US-style biscuits (they're eaten with honey in one scene) which threw me off somewhat.

I want to have it so that I won't need to fuss my drawers procuring it when I am most in need of a laughing, weeping, cheering-my-fool-lungs-out read that doesn't have the effrontery to wink at me or let me know it's clever-clever. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.I don't think I've ever listened to so many chapters about battle and preparation for battle in a middle grade book as I did in this one.

Personally I found Bob, the carnivorous semi-intelligent sour bread starter dough, hilarious and the Nag, the horse skeleton, rather cute.

She has been nominated for the World Fantasy and the Eisner, and has won the Hugo, Sequoyah, Nebula, Alfie, WSFA, Coyotl and Ursa Major awards, as well as a half-dozen Junior Library Guild selections.I feel guilty but I craved bread and gingerbread throughout this even though eating them would have felt tantamount to murder. None of this is terribly useful magic, apparently, though she can convince dough to be better, as in fresher, softer, tastier.

Mona is such a superb protagonist – having been orphaned and then looked after by her aunt and uncle, her life is jogging along quite nicely.

It should never have come down to a kid like her having to be the one to make people aware of the dangers against the magicas or be forced to save the day. An assassin is stalking the streets of Mona’s city, preying on magic folk, and it appears that Mona is his next target. Bob the sourdough starter is hilarious and steals every scene (and that ranks right up there with things I never thought I'd say about a book, along with spiders are cool). It’s worse when the city inquisitor decides to accuse you of the murder, for no particularly good reason. This book was the kind of story I wish I had when I was a teen—just the right amount of sarcasm and dark humor mixed with incredible worldbuilding and a nonstop storyline.
