My Review:

          The Funny Adventures of Little Nani is a compilation of ten short stories. I never had the chance to read and review a children’s book, that is why I didn’t expect to enjoy it this much. Little Nani is a little girl with a magic wand that tries to help her friends, but every time she tries to use magic to do so everything goes wrong, although not every time the wrong result is necessary the bad one.

          Oh I loved the enthusiasm and energy of Little Nani. She is willing to be friends with everyone and she wants to help at every step, although she is not that good at listening to her friends. She, like most kids her age doesn’t have the patience to solve problems the classic way, that is why she owns a magic wand, but even so she doesn’t know how to use all the spells. She is very funny when she thinks that no one listens and understands her because she constructs her sentences in a logical way.

          Yet, my favorite character was one of Nani’s friends, Horse. Horse is a real bookworm; he reads all the time and often asks for more books and he tries to show to Little Nani when she chooses the wrong way to solve things. He did try to get Nani to read, but she is more interested in playing and exploring.

          My favorite story is Little Nani and The Ghostly Bookworm in which Nani goes to the bookstore to bring Horse more books. She soon finds out that the owner is in fact a ghost and tries to hide. I think I liked this very much because Nani was able to cast the right spell and helped Mr. Bookaboo to chat with Horse without leaving his bookstore.

“Oh! How nice! You are a window!” exclaimed Little Nani, delighted.
“I beg your pardon! I am not either a window!” said the old man, a bit angry.
“But it’s like my window. I can see things through my window, and I can see things through you,” said Little Nani, folding her arms.
“Both things are different. I am a ghost,” said the old man. “And I wasn’t playing with you. I was hiding from you.”
          The Little Adventures of Little Nani besides having the funniest stories and the most adorable witch is also an interactive book. Every story has two tasks in which the reader is asked to draw the scene they just read. I tried to draw one, but I am not very good at it so you won’t see it, but the book has very pretty illustrations which everyone will just love.

A stellar review for a truly stellar book. The Funny Adventures of Little Nani is as charming through the fifth read as it was the first.
