The Mystic Princesses are talking about the latest chapter book they read, Destiny and Faith’s Summer Adventures by Teddy O’Malley. As usual, they all have plenty to say.
“I’ve always wanted a twin sister,” Harmonie said. “That way I’d always have a friend.”
“Oh, you’ve got us,” Coral replied. “We’ll never leave you.”
“I liked the ghost hunting part,” Catie said returning to the book discussion. “It was funny when the ghost scared them.”
“I thought the funniest part was when they were cleaning the attic,” Janna said. “Cobwebs and spiders don’t scare me.”
“I liked that they found a job teaching their friends American Sign Language,” Breanna said. “Being able to include Dustin who is deaf, in their conversations must have made him feel welcome, even though he just moved into the neighborhood.”
The princesses decided they liked this book so much, they asked PJ to download all of Teddy O’Malley’s other eBooks. They want to read them, as well.

The Mystic Princesses just read another book by Mrs. D. called The City Kittens and the Old House Cat.
Janna looked at the others and said, “I love the kittens, Mickey and Jack. They are so mischievious.”
“Yes, and so cuddly,” Catie said. “What did you like about this book, Harmonie?”
“That the old house cat, Nyda, learned she needed to get to know the kittens before deciding whether to like them or not.”
“I agree,” Coral said. “Nyda only saw that the kittens had a fancy carrier and appeared to be spoiled. She didn’t know that they’d been homeless and hungry before being adopted.
After Breanna said she liked the message of adopting pets so that they could have a nice home, Harmonie added one last thought. “Adoption and acceptance aren’t just for pets. They are important for people, too.”
