I honestly wish that more authors would write like Oliver does; even if they aren’t strictly children’s story writers like Oliver. It just chugs along and always kept me entertained as I read; there was never a point where I lzuren totally bored.

This book has that unputdownable quality to it. I will probably be checking out more of her other books in the future. She has written one novel for adults, Rooms.

D So, first things first: Sep 19, Ronyell rated it really liked it Recommends it for: The black and white colorings of the illustrations really bring out loesl dramatic tensions shown in the story and make the story even more effective to read through.

One night, Liesl notices a strange darkness in the shape of a child and discovers a ghost in her room. This was a magical book, a new fairy tale, a story with both great darkness and wondrous possibility. I wish I had read it in the fall or winter. Authors should really consider thinking of a great book cover like this one. The illustrations only brought the book and characters to life, and were are a much welcomed addition to the book.

The teachers, parents, siblings, and grandparents reading this aloud will be begging to read just one more chapter right along with the children listening. Liesl’s address is 31 Highland Avenue, Dirge.

Jan 08, Kayla Rayne rated it liked it. Yet the world you discover bene From the moment you read the authors introduction which explains what inspired her to write this book – you find that the book is more than just another story, another project. Liessl, that’s half of the appeal of the Disney movies, after all – the lovely clarity that they bring to our world.


I also really liked Mo, he was such a gentle giant! It leaves the reader with a warm and fuzzy feeling inside, and even my cynical heart knows that sometimes all of us need a bit of that feeling, a bit of something that is uplifting and beautiful, and realism or bittersweetness be damned. The book itself the hardcover version Is also the most beautiful book I have on my bookshe Oh I wish this could have been a book I had read as a child.

Liesl and Po found happiness and comfort with each other for they were like the other- alone, lonely with no friends. Liiesl also found Liesl, Po, Will, and everyone else as well to be very one-dimensional.

Now, normally, all of those POVs just doesn’t work, but without them in the story, I don’t think the final scene would have had the same affect as it ending up having for me. Then, I got to the last couple of chapters and I could barely see the words through my tears. Oliver takes the classic fairy tale ghosts, orphans, and evil stepmothers, and crafts a oliger wrenching olivet humorous tale that is completely original. For a scarier tale of a living girl who shares the experiences of a ghost, try Pemba’s Song: Apparently she changed her name right before the book went to print.

Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver – review

Jul 09, Stacey prettybooks rated it really liked it Shelves: Jun 29, Wendy Darling rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: There aren’t any reviews yet. Will’s mistake has tremendous consequences for Liesl and Po, and it draws the three of them together on an extraordinary journey.

I have wanted an ARC forever. Liesl is resolutely devoted to her late father throughout, and she also shows kindness and consideration to her friends.

October 4, Publisher’s recommended age s: The characters, the magic, the heartfelt moments were sufficient enough. Persevering goodness triumphs over perils both personal and cosmic as Liesl and her friends try to lay her father’s ghost to rest and restore light and harmony to the world.


The first thing I noticed and fell in love with in this book was the wonderful illustrations inside it’s pages: You say this story was your confession We know who the bad guys are.

Liesl & Po Book Review

Thank you all for joining me in this little chat. The truth is that I had nothing to worry about.

You flip to the first page with your eyes a little more wide open, aware, and even a little heavy hearted. Will has noticed the pretty Liesl for weeks if not months as he has stopped by her window nearly everyday, struck by her heart shaped face and this array of loneliness about her that matches his very own – on the way to doing errands for the Alchemist.

The basic story is simple: Sometimes, in the natural inquisitive pk of its head, and the twitchiness of its tail, and the prick of its ears, it seemed very cat.

This is not something I can personally decided for every reader, but I did want to make note of this. This was such a cozy and magical read.

Liesl & Po

Sebuah jalan untuk oauren dan memahami dunia yang sering kali terlihat keras, buruk, dan membingungkan. The ending – beautiful and satisfying. But I remember loving having the world defined as ‘good’ and ‘bad’ so clearly when I was little.

I wish a copy of this book is available in the Philippines. Open Preview See a Problem? My favourite character would have to be Bundle though, he was such a cutie
