One reviewer called A Christmas Feral a story that would do Charles Dickens proud. Judge Scrooge won’t even heat his home for Christmas in this Roaring Twenties’ short story. Judge Scrooge says that when you pay the bill, you don’t feel the cold. When Judge Scrooge rules incorrectly in a cat dispute, Tatania and her companion Zeus teach him the meaning of keeping Christmas and cats.
*
In Cher Ami, two people drop dead within minutes of each other. They appear unrelated. Grace, Jack, Tatania and Zeus reveal the story of Cher Ami, a WWI carrier pigeon with the heart of a lion. With his heart still beating in a badly wounded body, Cher Ami soared above bullets and saved a lost battalion.

What they’re saying about it:
“This 4 story set was an easy read. The descriptions of flights in the early open planes were great! An independent young woman ahead of her time and standing up for herself against financial bad times made a pleasing main character. Some of the detective skills may have been a little more modern than of that time, but they added to the validity of the stories’ conclusions. The cats were great and I would have liked a little more of their “magical” qualities.”

Matt Fisher was a normal boy–until he found the Door. The Door that led to the House. The House whose Doors opened into places all over the world–and into worlds that had been, and would be, and even never were. But Matt wasn’t the only one who’d found his way in. Now he had something the man named Twig wanted, something that could sow the seeds to everything’s destruction. This first book in the spine-tingling Latchkeys series sets the stage for more adventures with Matt Fisher and the rest of the Latchkeys Kids!

What they’re saying about it:
*
In an age where far too many writers seem to think “children’s literature” means simplistic writing and two dimensional characters, it’s a refreshing change to read Mr. Savile’s take on the age old story of a child finding a hidden doorway. But the doors lead to a complex world we sadly only get a glimpse of, where one can go just about anywhere or anywhen, but there are monstrous beings lurking in (or perhaps ARE) the shadows, beings that frankly seem to be more in control of things than the protagonists. There are no easy “click your slippers and all will be well” outs, and truthfully, this fact may unsettle very young readers as much as it delights the pre-teens and up. It makes for a story that rings true and leaves you wanting more– but thankfully, more sequels are due soon.
