To me, space opera’s are just so much fun. An adventure across an entire galaxy is just so entertaining because it allows you to imagine bigger than what reality is. But while I enjoyed this story, it did have a bumpy beginning for me.

The Zentoki Fables #1 by Petra Landon Published on August 8, 2019
I was not ready for this book to be over. I knew it was coming since I had been watching the percentage of book left on my tablet, but was still so sad when it did. I love fun adventure stories and this one was so nicely done with great, extensive world building, characters that are interesting, likeable, and sympathetic, and a nice plot and story.
Two 10-year old cousins accused of murder. Going in, I wondered if this would be more like The Bad Seed, a 1956 psychological horror film, or the 1993 film The Good Son, or something completely different all together. Of course, I’m not going to tell here.
Birthday’s are a special time for Madeline in Don’t Drink the Pink. Each year that she grows older her grandfather gives her a choice of magical potions. There’s red ones, and blue ones, and yellow ones and more. But the one color she can’t pick is pink.
Each birthday when she selects a potion and drinks something magical occurs. With red one she breathes fire, with yellow she has super speed. It’s a cute rhyming book with fun pictures that even includes extra things occurring in the background, such as her parents putting our fires on her first birthday. She has a lot of fun on these birthdays and looks forward to them every year.
One year he’s not there to give her a potion. It’s a sad moment in the book and reminds us that the ones we love will not always be with us, but in this story he’s left her one more potion to drink. The last potion I wasn’t 100% sure what was occurring although maybe it is meant to be open to our interpretation, either way it was a nice ending.
