Yvonne,
You might like Journey to Imagiland. There are two female protagonists and kids from 8 to 80 will enjoy the journey.

Self-promotion is not allowed on custumer forums. Please remove your link. If your link is not removed, then the "report abuse" link will be utilized. Please stop. Readers are not attracted to authors who break the rules, force their way into established forums, and spam their works. Not attractive.

Ditto what G said!

G., where are you getting your information? In order to self-promote, I would need to have written a book to promote. The book I referenced is not mine. I am neither the author nor the artist involved. It is simply not my work. I have, nonetheless, deleted the my earlier post. I have done this because I fully believe, based upon the the strong wording from your multiple threats in this discussion, that you would likely follow through and report me as an abuser regardless. The last thing I need right now is to be banned from yet another website for rule-breakage that I did not do. If anyone here is violating the guidelines of Amazon.com, I suggest that it is you violating this rule: 'Repeated unwelcome messages that harass or embarrass other customers or participants' as outlined on this page: http://www.amazon.com/gp/forum/content/db-guidelines.html/ref=cm_cd_et_d_gl

In closing, check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Scott,

If you didn't break the rules Amazon wouldn't ban you. In fact, even if you did break the rules it would have to be very egregious for them to take the step of banning you. They would delete your POST if it violated their TOS.

Scott, I do remember the book you posted a link for which was written by an L.J. Gastineau. While self-promotion is against Amazon's terms of service, promoting the book of someone you know also violates their guidelines, especially if this person is a relative. This is why G. posted. G. did not violate Amazon's guidelines.

The second message G. wrote, if you click on the blue area that says "an earlier post," was not even directed at you but at another poster who is the author of a book and who is self-promoting. Self-promotion is strictly prohibited by Amazon, and this was not a violation either.

You are incorrect.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 9, 2012 1:04:19 PM PDT
@Scott. Are you a relative of the author? If you are, then you are promoting a relative, and this is not an unbiased recommendation. People here are looking for un-biased recs from people who are familiar with what children enjoy. If I was not correct, and you are not related, then you have my heartfelt apology. I have done NOTHING to break TOS. I don't own this site, therefore have no power to "threaten". Warn and redirect is my goal since Amazon is the one who will decide if a post is against TOS.

Thanks Agnes and Nana ;)

G,

You have always been polite and give a little warning that you will report abuse if the post is not deleted. While I am also polite (I try to bend over backwards to the point that I think I'm starting to resemble a pretzel), I have stopped waiting to report abuse.

I'm done, G. As soon I see the self-promotional post I click the abuse button.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 9, 2012 3:48:26 PM PDT
Sigh, no matter what I do and how I say it, it doesn't seem to be helping anything. The thing is, there have been a couple of really nice authors who REALLY didn't know that spamming was against TOS and have come back with some good recs. They have been the EXCEPTION, so...OMG, you are right!<- I just argued myself into agreement.

If this needs to be done, then I hope more people come around and "report abuse". I think just a couple of us doing it won't be enough?

Thanks for the kind words Nana. I try to be polite, but when I come home from work and EVERY new post is a spam post, then sometimes I am a bit snarky!

I don't know if anyone else has suggested it, but "Elle Enchanted" by Gail Carson Levine is excellent. My daughter likes "Two Princesses of Bamarre" by Levine even better.

I highly recommend The Sisters Grimm series. It's kind of a mystery meets fairy tale/fable series of books. The sisters have to solve a mystery in each book over which fairy tale creature(s) are causing mayhem. I've read them all so far & think they're AWESOME!
