5.0 out of 5 stars it seems like what Polyjuice would taste like, September 6, 2014
Leak proof. I keep my Fireball Whiskey in this flask; it seems like what Polyjuice would taste like. I'm sure Prof. Snape would (dis)approve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stays out of her way so she can swim easily and freely, September 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Got a small for our 16 pound Miniature Schnauzer. Gives her an assist when swimming so she doesn't get as tired. Stays out of her way so she can swim easily and freely. It's easy to put on and off, although you have to take care that it doesn't slip over the dog's head and front legs if you have a leash attached and pull at the coat with the dog facing you. Easy to use the handle (on a small dog) to lift the animal into or out of the water. Dries quickly and adjusts to fit a broader-bodied dog like a Schnauzer. It's pricier than other models but it's definitely been worth the extra spend for us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very adorable and perfect for this Schnauzer fan, September 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Cute sticker that captures the peculiar "Schnauzer Smile" that occurs when they lick their mustache hairs out of the way of their lips. They appear to be smiling! And when they lick just one side, they appear to have a smirky sort of smile, as seen in this sticker. Very adorable and perfect for this Schnauzer fan.

Easy to apply.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a great series. We started this one after working through ..., September 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Such a great series. We started this one after working through the Tale Dark and Grimm series. While the grammar and vocabulary isn't as lush or as correct as the Grimm books, these still boast complicated sentence structure that will expose your children to more than 6 word sentences. Great to read to children age 7 and up, they'll instantly be pulled in to the story and quickly become versed with the pantheon of Greek gods, heroes, monsters, and creatures. Pair it with traditional tellings from a library book on Greek gods, and you can add background to the references to Heracles, Titans, etc.

Read this book and the second one (Sea of Monsters) then watched the two movies after finishing each book. Sea of Monsters is, by far, the better movie, although neither sticks very closely to the books. Watching the films is a good test of how well your child paid attention to the written story! We spotted lots of inconsistencies, but liked the films in their own right.

This review is from: A Tale Dark and Grimm (Paperback)
First in a series - you cannot go wrong with reading this wonderful series to your children aged 7 and older. While there are some frightening descriptions and lots of bloody scenes, the Narrator's interjections keep the scary bits light and entertaining. The sentence structure and vocabulary are straight from Grammar/Vocab Heaven; we found it wonderful to explain what a word meant and then try to use it in regular conversations. This was not an easy job with words such as craggy and perspicacity!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money!!!, September 6, 2014
I can't echo previous commenters' posts enough - this book is awful. I don't doubt the writer has over 19 years' experience (which she stated numerous times) in demonology, but I definitely doubt whether she's had even a basic grammar or writing course. It's riddled with typos (I got disgusted after the 7th misuse of "then" for "than", and found it difficult to see the book as credible or interesting due to the immature narrative.

I should have known it would be frustrating when the foreword noted "thanks to my editor for allowing me free rein while writing this book". I would wager there were no reins, harness, bridle or even a barn in place for this awful work. An instance where self-publishing or low-cost publishing does a disservice to readers.
