  1. OoOoO I'm reading a book with vampires too (Son of No One), but I'm not liking it as much as I'm expected to. Are you enjoying this one? :)

  2. Huh, I wonder why the fangs remain? The bones don't so why the teeth?

    1. This is the 1st in a new series, but it also ties into her last series, the Ivy Granger books.

  7. I like the caricature type cover and am curious why the teeth are left behind. Trophies, perhaps?

  9. Vampires are perfect for October. Fangs being left behind? I'm seeing a character who likes to hold on to them as souvenirs.

  15. I never knew that about vampires. I will have to add it to my new knowledge bank about the, :) Sounds like a fun read for this month. I just made my "creepy" book display for the school library and kids come running for these types of books. Anne's Friday Quotes

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
