These are 2 of my models, made with pipe cleaners. The one with yellow is Umbreon – the Dark evolution of Eevee, from Pokémon.

The one with blue is a Shiny Umbreon.

Children of Blood and Bone

May 20th, 2020

We’ve read Children of Blood and Bone, by Tomi Adeyemi, twice. It’s the first part in a trilogy, and we’ve just finished the second book: Children of Virtue and Vengeance.

Oscar says “I liked it a lot. It was very amazing and long. But it managed to keep us liking it. It’s a book that I really liked, and it took a long time for us to read both of them.

“I liked that it’s about people that don’t have much privilege. And that it had magic in it, like the magicians in the Glass and Steele books.” (He means the books by C J Archer.)
