We are pleased to be coordinating a Book Review Blitz for the middle grade fantasy adventure, “The Ifs” by J. D. Pooker (blitz ends October 9, 2014). I have read the first few chapters to my kids and we are all enjoying it very much. There has been much begging for “one more chapter”!
You will be provided with an electronic copy of the book (pdf, mobi, and epub). You will have until October 9, 2014 (6 weeks) to post a review to Amazon, Goodreads, and/or your website. Posting to Amazon is mandatory while posting to Goodreads and/or your website is optional. Once you post your review to one or more of these sites, you will have the opportunity to enter a draw for a $50 Amazon gift card (or PayPal cash) using the Rafflecopter widget below.
*At the conclusion of the Book Review Blitz, I will be posting excerpts from the reviews on Amazon and Goodreads and will be including links back to your post if you posted a review of the book on your website. *
About the Book
Title: The Ifs | Author: J.D. Pooker | Illustrator: Frank Walls | Publication Date: April 22, 2013 | Publisher: Little Devil Books | Pages: 146 | Recommended Ages: 8 to 12
Summary: Landon and Broden are brothers. And some days they DO NOT get along very well. They spend most of their days fighting, arguing and plotting ways to get revenge on each other. Then, strange things start happening…
Noises in their room that are not the cat.
Homework is mysteriously finished.
A broken shoelace repairs all by itself.
Clothes are put in the hamper on their own.
The brothers want to share their weird experiences, but they don’t know if they can trust each other. But when they find out who’s behind all the strange things around the house, they are called to battle. Battle? Whoa! Right there in the forest by their house! A battle with the most unusual creatures and wildest of beasts. And when the battle turns more dangerous than they imagined, Landon and Broden must face their fears, put their grudges aside and learn how to work together.
The Buzz About the Book
“The plot was exciting and well written. The entire book kept me engaged and interested in the characters and what was going on. J.D. Pooker wrote an amazing book that fantasy lovers of all ages would enjoy. This would make a great gift for boys or girls to put in their personal library; whether you purchase the paperback version or an ebook.” ~ Sapphyria, Amazon
“The moment the book arrived I had to break up a minor fight over who got the book first. We went to a 15 minute oven timer to determine turns. After an hour my granddaughter relented to my grandson. He read the book, cover to cover, in the first night. He reports it is the best book he has read. Long story short, the book has a positive and fun story.” ~ Maryann, Amazon
“This story moves along and will keep young readers involved. A great adventure for all ages of boys or girls to enjoy.” ~ Ir, Amazon

Unless you provide me with an explanation, failing to post in three blitzes will result in your ineligibility to receive free copies of books through Mother Daughter Book Review’s Promotional Services.

Once you sign up to participate in this Book Review Blitz, you will receive a Dropbox invitation to grab an electronic copy of the book you requested for review. If you do not receive this email within 3 days of signing up, please send me an email to let me know: renee(@)motherdaughterbookreviews(.)com and be sure to remove the brackets in the email address.
