    I really enjoyed this story, but for its age range it's rather simplistic and would probably be better for younger readers, although I guess any age group could read it. Its themes of cheerful friendship are nice but written in a way that I don't think would appeal to anyone over six years old.

    Eliza and her quirky shadow delight as they do their best to help locals and friends. It's a heartwarming story for kids. I'd love to see a slightly longer version for adults!

    You can read this review and more on my blog:I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.This was a delightful little story about a young woman named Eliza who, with help from her shadow, brings joy and happiness to the village of Blossom Brooke. I have been lucky enough to read two other short stories by this author, and this one is my favorite so far. I always enjoy it when a book makes me smile the entire time I read it, and there is just something so sweet about a story that’s written with children in mind and can still be enjoyed by adults. This book fed the kid in me.It is perfect to read to or with younger children. In fact, I found myself wishing I had a child to read this with me so I could have an excuse to use all of the funny voices I assigned to each character. I had a lot of fun reading about Eliza and her magical shadow, and I know a child would have appreciated it even more. Plus it would have been fun to giggle along with them instead of just giggling to myself.Eliza waltzes into Blossom Brooke one day, and proceeds to make life a little better for each and every person who lives there. Most of the chapters are devoted to her helping out one person or another, and there is an overall feeling of whimsy positivity that is felt throughout the book. One thing I love about this author’s books, is the way she takes the seemingly ordinary and makes it extraordinary. First she makes the ability to clean up dust seem like a superpower in her Delilah Dusticle series, and now shadows have become the best friend a girl, (or anyone for that matter) could ever have. Yes, I said “shadows” Eliza’s shadow was possibly the most important and certainly the most enjoyable character in this entire story. If you don’t believe that shadows can be that interesting, pick up a copy of this book and see for yourself.In a world when kids have to grow up too fast, and constantly need to be entertained by one electronic after another, it was nice to read a story that revolves everyday people with just a little bit of magic thrown in to make things interesting.This is the type of book I wish I had read more when I was younger, and it’s the type of book I hope to read to my own children some day. It was short, sweet, fed my imagination, and had some really great lessons about things like not judging a book by it’s cover, forgiveness, and being a good friend hidden among all the funny scenes. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to children of all ages, but I would heartily suggest that you read this story to that special little one in your life. You won’t regret the fun I am sure you will have together.This book is clean, but the reading level is suitable for ages 8-11.

    When Eliza Bluebell came to town, no one in Blossom Brook could pinpoint the exact moment or day, just that she magically appeared and changed this tiny town forever. What the townsfolk didn’t know was that Eliza brought her best friend, her shadow, with her. Full of love and joy and veiled by a sparkly mystery, Eliza spread her magic throughout the town, while teaching a lesson to those she touched.Does A. J. York sprinkle pixie dust over her words? Eliza Bluebell is a magical treat designed for younger readers, that gently draws them in with her detailed descriptions of each scene and each event. If any book could create a true reader out of a child, the positive atmosphere and sunny disposition of Eliza and her best friend can do it! Be a magical hero yourself, and share the gift of wonderful, positive reading with a child! Let them learn the value of imagination and the fun of Eliza’s deeds.I received this copy from A.J.

    My Review: I always seem to be in a weird place in my life when I get an email for AJ York. Trust me it’s not a bad thing, It’s always what I need to get me out of that place and back to normal. Her books are so sweet and inspirational. Her characters are delightful, having read the Delilah Dusticle series when she emails to ask if I would read this new book it was without hesitation that I said yes.One line in the book really put a lot of what I have been going through in perspective and I can’t thank you enough for giving me the chance to read this.“Sometimes, if we just give things a go, we find we can do things we never imagined doing in a million years,” said Eliza58 pages and packed with so much heart and sweetness. I thought I loved Delilah but Eliza is a doll. I adore her and her shadow. Moving from place to place all Eliza has is her shadow and it was a magical shadow. Her shadow would do things that only she could see, everyone else would see just a shadow. When they pair arrive in Blossom Brook is obvious that it needs Eliza and her shadows help and that is exactly what she does.Eliza is a very kind person and wants to help people as much as she can. This book follows along as she helps each person in the town before moving on her way. It is without a doubt a heartwarming and inspirational, very funny and so cute. I loved this entire books and hope that she has more of Eliza Bluebell as well as more Delilah. If you haven’t read these books, young or old, they are a really great read. I can't wait to introduce Eliza to my daughter, I think she will love her[divider]Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my reviewHope you have a great day and Happy Reading!This review was originally posted on Because reading is better than real life

    Another one of A.J.'s magical stories. This one features a mysterious young woman who takes a break from her quest to find family to open a sweet shop in a small town. No one is certain how or when Eliza showed up, but everyone remembers it. After that, each chapter features one or two of the people from the town and how Eliza touches their lives. Eliza becomes a legend in the town's lore. A woman whose departure was as mysterious as her arrival. In this story, which is pretty short, I most enjoyed the chapters in the middle, because each one is told from the perspective of a different villager. The nosy neighborhood women, the best friends in the grade school, the old man who grumbles and times the bus, and the young couple who are down on their luck. I like how Eliza draws them out of their shells and helps them connect to each other. Eliza's sentient and playful shadow adds that element of magic to everything. The people don't notice it directly, but they are affected by it. This is one of those stories that just left me feeling good.The illustrations are also well done, though simple in their execution. Just silhouettes and shadows against a white background. They are obviously done by a skilled artist, though not as whimsical or laughter inducing as those in the author's other books. They fit the story and introduce the subject of each chapter effectively.Although I liked this story, I think the story could have done just as well either without the first chapter, or with a much shorter one. I think this was because the first chapter was more of a telling than a showing. Later ones were more of a showing, which is why I enjoyed them more. There was also a fair amount of repetition, particularly within the first chapter. Overall, I really liked the story, though it had a slow start. I'd recommend Eliza Bluebell to folks who like uplifting short stories with a touch of humor and magic. I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.

    Plot/Story: Of course, with this being a children’s book, this was a rather fast paced novel, but that did not distract from the adorable story. Eliza Bluebell is a mystery. She travels with her best friend, her shadow, finding people in need and vanishes once she has done all she can for them. The story reminds me a lot of Mary Poppins and Nanny McPhee to be honest, but I loved it none the less. Eliza has come into a town full of people who need a little help. And she helps them in the most adorable ways, never asking for anything in return.Despite it being a children’s book, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope that I will be able to find it once I have kids. It brings up the importance of helping others for no reason other than to just help them. It’s a beautiful story about friendship and kindness.Characters: There are so many characters and they change a lot throughout the novel. They all become better people, because of Eliza Bluebell. Romance/Kills: There is an innocent romance that doesn’t go beyond what a child’s mind could comprehend and there is no death. Writing: The writing is perfect for a middle grade novel. I loved York’s writing style and how she keeps it simple.Beginning: This is a short novel, but I was possibly hooked from the very first line. What an amazing concept of a girl and her shadow.Ending: Beautiful ending. Cover Art: I honestly love this cover. It is so simple and so inviting. The cover alone makes you want to pick up the book and find out what it’s about.Blurb: The blurb perfectly describes what this book is going to be about.Other StuffOpening Line: Eliza Bluebell became best friends with her shadow at a very young age.Highlights: Adorable story that made my heart smile.Lowlights: Nothing I can think of.Final Thoughts: If you have kids, this would be a wonderful story to read with them.

    Today We DidEliza Bluebell has a special talent; her shadow is a separate entity and is invisible to all bar Eliza. When Eliza and her shadow arrive in Blossom Brook they begin running a tearoom on the high street. On the side, Eliza and her shadow help members of the community with any problems they might be having.This is a delightful chapter book! Some magic and humour, and a lesson that helping others can be very rewarding. The language is simple with short chapters, perfect for younger children. Each chapter began with a black and white silhouette illustration of the main theme of the chapter. The flow of the story was very smooth without the interruption of illustrations within the text. I love the cover of Eliza Bluebell too, it’s so simple, yet striking.Eliza is a bit like Mary Poppins, arriving when needed, and leaving quietly when she is no longer required. She is kind and gentle, while her shadow is quite cheeky. I really liked grumpy old Mr Groop, with his sour expression and insistence on telling the bus driver how late the bus is running. I’m glad someone was able to cheer him up though!Eliza Bluebell is suitable for lower and middle primary school students. It would make a great read for early independent and reluctant readers, as well as being a nice story to share. I liked this story very much, and I hope there will be more Eliza Bluebell adventures in the future.*I received this book as a digital copy from the author, who asked me for an honest review of this book. I did not receive any other remuneration, and the review is composed entirely of my own opinions.

York Eliza Bluebell is one of the most magical and beautiful book I have ever read. Right from the start of the book, there is a different feel to the characters, the settings, even the language. A certain happiness unfolds by just reading the book.Eliza Bluebell is a magical girl, and her shadow is her friend. She comes to the small village of Blossom Brook and changes everyone's life with her small magic and also her cup cakes. Eliza's magic is a special one. The Magic is the love in Various relationships. She brings people together in her sweet way and thus, brings happiness to the town. The most important part about that magic is that by the end of the book, some part of the magic rubs on you as well.The book is written keeping children in mind as focus audience, but it is suitable for all age groups. The story is subtle and sweet and anyone who reads it will fall in love with Eliza. AJ has created a wonderful magical story with Eliza. I am definitely looking forward to even more of her magic to be spread around us.

    I received a copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This was a very sweet novella! It is touching and heartwarming to see how Eliza helps each of the residents of Blossom Brook, from the young to the old.Eliza has a bit of magic in her; her shadow is its own person, and Eliza is great friends with it. When she arrives in Blossom Brook, she fixes up a dilapidated old shop and turns it into something wonderful and new and improves everybody's lives.I enjoyed Eliza's kind disposition, as well as the interactions between her and her shadow, not to mention the interactions with the townspeople.In each chapter there was a person who needed assistance, and you got to see how Eliza helped them. Each person had a different problem, but each received an equally good solution.Each chapter is a story in itself, and you can read one without having any cliff hangars thrown at you, which, for this story, works. I would definitely recommend this one, and it should appeal to both children and adults alike, as long as the adult in question doesn't mind a simple, easy read.

    More like 4.5 stars. A.J. York again has created a memorable, admirable heroine, who's goodness has a touch of magic to it. Eliza Bluebell is a fast, sweet read about a girl and her shadow who go around making everyone's lives better. Eliza reminded me a lot of Anne Shirley in her ability to make people realize their potential, forgive one another, or see the beauty in the world in stead of the bad.I decided on 4.5 stars instead of five because, although I loved Eliza's story, I felt like the story was rushed. Eliza has so much potential and her back story left me feeling like I had been cheated some information. If I were writing this story, I wouldn't have given any back story on Eliza Bluebell at all, and just started with her arrival. Kind of like Nanny McPhee. The mystery of not knowing anything is better than getting a snippet of information. The snippet makes the story feel unfinished.But again, I loved A. J. York's creativity. I'm so glad someone is writing sweet children's/young reader stories that are full of goodness.

    Eliza Bluebell by A.J. YorkEliza Bluebell comes to town. She is unique, her shadow is her best friend. Together she and her shadow open a sweet shop and the whole town is in awe and happy.An original and fun story with lovable characters and magical happenings. A pure delight for middle school readers and adults young at heart. I highly recommend Eliza Bluebell to all. Also recommended Delilah Dusticle and Delilah Dusticle's Transylvanian Adventure also by A.J. York.

    Eliza is a special person that just shows up in Blossom Brook one day. With the help of her shadow she fixes up a run down store. Everyone initially disregards it because it is a tea room but after they come in something magical happens. Eliza always seems to have just what everyone wants or needs. Through gentle suggestion she helps a young girl apologize to her best friend and helps a young man broaden his experiences with baking.I really liked this book. It is a short story that would be perfect for bedtime. Eliza is magical and with the help of her shadow she helps the residents of Blossom Brook. I have to say one of my favorite characters was Popeye and how things turned out for him.This story is filled with magic and would make anyone, young or old, ready to read more books from AJ York.I received this story for free in exchange for an honest review.

    My review for Delilah Dusticle, Delilah Dusticle's Transylvanian Adventure, Delilah Dusticle and the Cursed Tempest, and Eliza BluebellCute, Cute, Cute, Cute!!! These books were so delightful! I love books that have a little normal life mixed with a little magic. As much as I loved these books now, I would have adored them when I was younger!I do have to say that my favorite was Eliza Bluebell. It was such a sweet story. Eliza is a great character with a sweet and helpful personality. The chapters were all like separate little stories all in one book. Very good book! I highly recommend checking out all of these books!*Note: I received copies of these books from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.I had read Delilah Dusticle & Delilah Dusticle’s Transylvanian Adventure and thought they were good children’s books so when A.J. York offered me a copy of Eliza Bluebell to review, I was happy to do so.Eliza is a refreshing character. She comes into town and opens a tea room and she seems to know what everyone needs whether it’s a cup of tea or a job. She is so sweet that she ends up changing the lives of everyone in the small town of Blossom Brook.Eliza Bluebell is a cute story that has wonderful descriptions and is just quirky enough that children will enjoy reading it.

    I got this book from the author a while back, but I never wrote a review for it on Goodreads. SO SORRY!!!!!I remember reading this and saying, "This book is so cute and great for my 8 year-old cousin." It has a great story with great characters. It was a really light,quick, and enjoyable read. I wished I was in that world. It was so picture perfect and someone always knew what you wanted.The writing was engaging. It was just too fast. I wish that there was more to the story and that it was longer.

    Eliza Bluebell has a lot of my favourite elements in middle grade fantasy, and reminds me a lot of the books I liked best when I was tinier - except for the length! I would have liked to see it grow a little bigger, to be more than a single mouthful of a story. (But I realise an actual middle-grader might not object to a shorter story.)The chapters are short, and full of vivid, colourful characters with very distinct traits, and clearly defined problems for Eliza and her independent shadow to solve and amend by the power of... pastries. Yes. Pastry power. It's pretty cool.

    I recieved this book from a giveaway. I'd give this 2.5 stars. The story is okay, but I guess I'd enjoy it more if I was younger since it is a children's book. I just felt like there was a lot that could be added or changed to make it a better story and enjoyable to read.

    This review and more over at The Bibliophile ChroniclesThis sweet, charming children’s novel will have your kids smiling at bedtime!When Eliza Bluebell takes over a derelict shop in Blossom Brook, she changes the lives of the local people forever. With the help of her trusty shadow, she transforms the shop into a beautiful tea-room, While feasting on her gorgeous cakes and milkshakes, Eliza helps the residents of Blossom Brook transform their lives, and make their lives a happier place.This is a really lovely book and an absolute pleasure to read. This is the sort of book that in the future, I’d like to read to my children. It’s fun, enjoyable and full of quirky, original characters. Although it’s a children’s book it touches on a whole variety of subjects, from friendship, to affording to get married to loneliness. It’s a really great story, the plot is fantastic and it’s very easy to read and it flows extremely well.This is definitely a book children will love, there’s a whole host of characters and I'm sure any parent will have just as much fun putting on different voices and accents as a child will listening to it. It’s a bright and sunny book, one I couldn't imagine not enjoying. Something I particularly noticed is that the plot is a very original one, and it manages to weave life lessons and topics in in a very interesting and subtle way.There are also some lovely little illustrations at the beginning of each chapter. I read this book on the kindle, and although they were lovely on that, I can imagine they are even more enjoyable in paper form.As for the characters, Eliza and her shadow are great. They’re very well written, enjoyable characters and I found myself smiling a lot at the subtle and funny ways that they help the people of Blossom Brook, from two young school girls who have fallen out, to the gossipy women across the street who want to get together for a chat. Something that really struck me was the shadow, which reminded me so much of Peter Pan, a story I loved when I was younger. I'm not sure if it was intentional or not, but the mischievous shadow reminded me a lot of Barrie’s beloved story, which made me smile all the more.A truly beautiful, creative enjoyable story that can be adored by children, as well as the adults that are reading it to them.

    Just me and my shadow, that’s what I thought as I started to read Eliza Bluebell by A. J. York. This is a cute, short book that put me in a cheerful mood when I finished. With great flow, I loved the small town feeling this book had that put a jaunt in my step as I read. Eliza can never make friends as she is a traveler, so her best friend is her shadow. When she arrives in Blossom Brook, I was surprised when she inquires about a rundown building. There’s something mysterious about Eliz but that doesn’t bother anyone in this small town. She has drive and she’s charming the pants off the people in this town. The Blueberry Tearoom, the quaint shop finally opens, the townsfolk wander in and Eliza welcomes them. Oh, Eliza’s shadow is there to help out also. This small town loves this new attraction, the view is priceless, and the tea is heavenly and the delicate pastries and the gossip…most enjoyable. Owning the teashop has its benefits for everyone for she’s helping the town, lifting their spirits, aiding their needs with the help of her shadow who she sends off while she tends the shop. Wishes and desires are being done unbeknownst to the individuals. Pockets of love being performed throughout the town. Pouring out their problems to Eliza, the tearoom becomes quite popular, Eliza comforting with a slice of this and a cup of that. It’s charming and I could visualize this shop in a small town, the patron’s lives transforming. It’s Eliza, a remarkable lady and her shadow, leaving her mark wherever she goes.I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    This review first appeared on my blog Christy's Cozy Corners.I received an ecopy of Eliza Bluebell free for an honest review.Eliza Bluebell is an adorable story that your children are going to love! It is magical and wonderful! Once in a great while, there is a book that I am asked to read that I end up gushing over. This is one of those books! Not to take away from the other books I’ve reviewed, but this one just has something in it that makes me want to really gush. It is the type of book I would have loved to have read as child.I read a lot as a child…okay, I still read a lot. My favorite books had fun characters and sweet story lines. Eliza Bluebell is one of my new favorite characters. I rank it up there with another of my favorite children’s books that I have reviewed, From the Magical Mind of Mindy Munson. Books like this expand your child’s imagination. The characters in this story will really get into your heart. The way that Eliza’s magic works in the lives of these characters will make you smile!Eliza Bluebell would be a great book for you to read to your younger children and a perfect book for your older elementary or middle grade aged children to read themselves. It is not too long and the chapters are short and easy to read. There are not too many illustrations, but this just adds to the imaginative quality of this story. Seriously, I loved this story and highly recommend it! Go buy it! You’ll thank me :)

    A. J. York’s Eliza Bluebell has the feel of TV’s Pushing up Daisies or the new movie, Age of Adelind. The writing offers a uniquely English blend of fairytale and modern storytelling, beautifully suited for children and adults alike. Chapter illustrations are delightfully simple, clear, and fun. And it’s hard to read without hearing that English narrator’s voice in your head. Of course, there are occasional surprises for American ears – we do drink squash in England, and it’s often flavored orange, lemon, or lime.A. J. York’s novels aren’t just magical stories though. There’s always a down-to-earth, everyday element to them. And there’s always a wise lesson too, as might be expected in the best of children’s fiction. Readers will “find we can do things we never imagined doing in a million years,” and be encouraged. Parents will remind their children of life’s bright possibilities. And we might all imagine the peace of drinking tea in a classic English tea shop.With nice lessons, enjoyable characters, English street scenes, sweet shadows, and the scent of something special in the spice, Eliza Bluebell is a great addition to your Delilah Dusticle collection, and a thoroughly enjoyable read.Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy and I offer my honest review.

    I quite liked Delilah Dusticle, and the nice little message it gave. Eliza Bluebell, for me, wasn't quite as good.Eliza breezes into a small town like the heroine of Chocolat - mysterious, opening a shop selling sweet things (here a teashop) and proceeds to help make changes to the lives of the town's inhabitants. Sweet enough. But there's a 'shadow' plot - Eliza's shadow can go off on its own and do things without Eliza being there. This seemed a bit pointless to me, it doesn't do anything very big or important, nothing that couldn't be got around by the plot. Some of the writing is awkward, there are missing contractions that don't read well coming from the mouths of children ("We had a fight and she is not talking to me anymore"). The setting, like Delilah Dusticle feels as though it should be 'period' (here I was thinking of Chocolat's 50s setting), but seems to actually be contemporary, from references made, which didn't feel right. I liked the general idea - mysterious person changing lives with cakes, but I thought the shadow unnecessary and overall, prefer Delilah.This is a 60-page children's story, suitable for ages 6-9.With thanks to the author for the copy, provided for review purposes.

    Eliza Bluebell is a mysterious woman who arrived one day at this small town. The people of Blossom Brook weren’t sure what to make of her, especially after she bought the abandoned store and turned it into a bakery. Throughout her stay, Eliza and her rambunctious shadow help each and every neighbor.The short, easy to read chapters are appropriate for young kids just starting to read chapter books. The eccentric characters will bring lots of laughter from the readers. Despite the rushed start, readers young and old will be swept up in the magical tale that is Eliza Bluebell.

    A.J. York's little books always remind me of books of the past. Mary Poppins, especially, but I also kept thinking of the movie Chocolat when I read this one since we get to know different characters in this small town as the story progresses.This is a charming read. However, although it is listed as a middle grade book, it doesn't have a child as its main protagonist. I'm sure kids would like this book although it doesn't quite fit the generally accepted middle grade mold But it's short and easy to read and would make a delightful little bedtime read, especially for little girls.

    Simply wondrous and adorableEliza Bluebell is magical, absolutely magical. The story is for young adult but I think children of all ages would enjoy this, whether reading it or being read to, as we all need that magic that are words read to us. Eliza and her shadow give something to the new town when they open the tearoom. It's a brilliant modern-day fairy tale and it should be cherished and adored.
