" children's fiction (3rd-5th grades?); sock monkey drama, daughter reunites with mother. " said.

" I loved this book, told from the perspective of Throckmorton S. Monkey, Annalise's sock monkey. " said.

" MN author, very interesting premise, I loved how the story is told from the perspective of the sock monkey. This should be considered for MHL Div 1, for sure! " said.

" This is a great choice for 2nd to 5th grade chapter book readers, especially if they like a more old-fashioned feel. The story is predictable but still has some good plot twists, the writing is charming, and the sock monkey characters are especially interesting. I could see a sequel coming... " said.

" I am not really the ideal audience for books about the inner life of stuffed animals. Even though, in real life I frequently anthropomorphize stuffed animals. Go figure. Anyway, this is pretty twee, which is probably not surprising. Alas, not quite the brand of twee that I respond to. It's sweet and nice and would probably make very nice before bedtime reading. " said.

" I really enjoyed this new children's novel. It was funny; I laughed and chucked often. And the deeper, sadder lines, the "secrets," are made less sorrowful by the slightly unbelievable, removed setting. The writing is mature enough, but simple enough too. I'll be interested in seeing how others react to this book. " said.

"Told from the point of view of Throckton S. Monkey, one of the 49 sock monkeys created by Great Grandma Easterling, this story takes place in New England in the 1930s. Annaliese's mother disappeared when she was a baby. All she wants is to know about her, but her father has forbidden anyone in the house from discussing her. As plans for Great Grandma Easterling's 90th birthday party are under way, Annaliese wonders if there is someway that she can learn more. A sweet adventure with a satisfying conclusion to the mystery. Recommended for grades 2-4. " said.

"The secrets of Eastclif by the sea is a story about a family with a 90 year old great grandma who has made sock monkeys for all her descendants. The main character is the sock monkey of the youngest descendant. The girls mother left when she was just a baby. In the end the two final meet and all is well. I thought it was a great book though there were a few parts that I thought dragged on a little bit. Other wise this book is a great book for someone who likes books told about things that don't actually live but do in the story. In all it was an awesome story with a few funny parts." said.
