    Another Mary's Magic Muffins. Brian, I have read to Autho chapter 7. This is a perfectly charming set of children's stories, aptly silly and conveniently bite sized. As a parent of a recently young child I appreciate the market a little bit and feel the stories work well as bedtime snippets. I do not have a lot of comments for improvement. These are all feel good, happy ending stories with very little conflict and obviously intended for very young audiences. ...

    Hello Brian, I have read the first story and quite liked it. My comments about grammar are in keeping with what others have said. I had a concern about the witch. I believe it could have been introduced at an earlier point in the story and probably have one of the characters aware somehow that their fate was as a result of this witch. Congrats on your work. I would love if you could critique my few chapters of my ...

    Hi Brian
    Have read chapter 1- interesting, different.Not what I was expecting for a kid's book. I think adult readers might get as big laugh as the kids. Thrown a bunch of stars at it.

    Hi Brian,

    I read the book and think it is absolutely wonderful. Being a former teacher I know my kids would have really enjoyed this story very much. I also read your first and Another Mary's Magic Muffins & more compliments it brilliantly as a sequel. High stars sir. I will tell my former co-workers to look into this story for the kids.

    Cheers,

    I am probably not qualified to say much, but I smiled a lot as I read the first story and I could see it being quite entertaining to children. I didn't see the punctuation at all so the story itself was very entertaining to me. I would say proofread to fix any of the punctuation and continue with the fun. i will continue into the other stories as time allows. I might even get the chance to run it by ...

    Hi Brian! I've read the first story, (Mary's Magic Muffins) and found it very accessible and imaginative. There were some very funny moments - such as the dialogue between the royals and ofcourse the farting, and I can see children enjoying this sort of story. But like some of the previous commenters have said, there were quite a few technical issues that distract from the story and interrupt the flow. There are sentences that could do with more commas and ...

    You're style is very appropriate for a child's story and the way the words flow together is very soothing and pleasing to the ear when read aloud. With that said, you still have quite a few grammatical fixes to make. For example, in Chapter 1, when Mary thinks to herself it should read, Oh well,(you don't have a comma). Also, when she says sorry God, you need a comma after sorry because she is talking to God. When Mary's name ...

    And still think that you need to contact your LEA if you haven't already - this is dream kid read - and if you can tap into local need for flavour and flair - you really have a place to display this1! Believe me - so many little eager ears wanting to hear this!

    I read Chapter 4 and enjoyed the tooth-fairy story. You write in a straightforward and comforting style which I am sure children would enjoy.

    I did notice, however, that you have a tendency to put commas in slightly odd places and have missed out a few apostrophes. Sorry to be pedantic, but if one gets these things right the writing looks more professional.

    Prose with an appropriate tone and lightness that should appeal to a young audience. Gave it solid stars.

    Brian, I was happy to see a follow up story. You continue to reach kid's imagination. Chapter 1, I think you meant to say 'started,' "Mary stared to sing nursery rhymes." Chapter 2, I'm not sure if kids will understand the full meaning of appearances. Chapter 3 got too crowded with names. I like it simple, introduction of one person or a couple per chapter. With chapters 4-6, you created variety by introducing people with different backgrounds. I think this ...

    Having read the first volume of Marys Magic Muffins I had to look at this new set of stories.
    I selected chapters two and three to read and thought the flow, content an presentation were just perfect for children. I can imagine these being read at school or as bed time stories.
    More high stars and good luck with publishing these gems.

    Check spacing in first line of chapter three.

    Hi Brian,
    Chapter 2
    What a delightful story. A love story, an adventure and a happy ending. How lovely for children to be left with the idea that they may see a seagull related to Sally and Benny. Awesome :)
    Good luck with this book, I am sure it will do well.

    Hi Brian, Chapter 1 The setting and idea for this tale is not only topical but a clever use of current affairs in a child's world. There are some editing issues, in relation to punctuation and spacing, to be addressed, but these are easily remedied. As an honorary Aussie having lived there for over four year I couldn't help but notice 'Aires Rock' which should be 'Ayres Rock,' The scene of the Queen and Phillip rolling around in mud and ...

    This seems like a nice fun book for small children. The idea of the magic muffins is lovely and the image of the Queen and Prince Philip farting in a muddy field is delightful! I found a few places where you had missed spaces between words, (probably the fault of the computer) but otherwise most enjoyable. I shall try and come back and read some more and have put it on my watchlist.

    I know I would have enjoyed reading this as a small girl! I like the mix of fantasy and cheekiness - reading material for George, perhaps? Bet that's already an old joke. Sorry! A couple of typos and errant apostrophe in chapter one - all I have had time for at present - but a charming with great story line. Good luck!
