“Delilah Dusticle blends whimsy and wonder into a story that will appeal to both young adults and the young at heart. It’s a lively, ebullient adventure through and through! Also highly recommended is the spooky sequel, “Delilah Dusticle’s Transylvanian Adventure”, in which Delilah and the Dustbusters are invited to Transylvania, to cater for the Hallow Eve Ball – but events take a dramatic turn when Count Dracula has a unique request!”
Midwest Book Review, Small Press Bookwatch, April 2015
Delilah Dusticle is back with an action packed mission. In this illustrated instalment, Delilah and the Dustbusters are invited to Transylvania, to cater for the Hallow Eve Ball. All is not what it seems and Count Dracula has a very unusual request. Get ready to join the fun and experience the magic!
This is the second book in an original and quirky fantasy series for middle grade readers. A heart-warming, witty tale that appeals to the young and the young heart. Notably, all the books deal with the themes of friendship and share wonderful lessons about accepting and being yourself.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a perfect second book in this series. This book, like the first, had some great messages for kids. Mainly, be true to yourself.
That’s one of the best messages we can give our children.
The story is fun and unique. Magic and whimsy abound. Each character brings a special piece to the story.
I really enjoyed getting to know more about Delilah’s dust abilities. You won’t be dissapointed! Who knew dust could be such a butt kicking weapon? I was also very surprised to find that some of the other characters are hiding secret identities!
What an adventurous life Delilah and her companions have!
The grumpy sponge is my favorite character. I’ll admit it. I like him. He’s a cool dude.
York tells this story with wit and piles of imagination. The world building was great. The characters are wonderfully written. The pacing is perfect!
York has done another fantastic job with this book. It’s a great story that will be great for your kiddo to read. I enjoyed it as an adult. It’s all around family fun.
I give this book 5 stars!
