    Aug 23, 2018

    E ARC from Edelweiss Plus Maggie has had a long and lonely summer before sixth grade with her best friend and neighbor, Abby, away at camp. Her mother, a children's oncologist, is constantly at work, so Maggie has taken over the living room with a huge pillow fort, mainly becaus...

    I am not even remotely embarrassed to say that I love this book with my entire heart. What a genuinely funny, smart, magical, empathetic, and 100% creative middle grade novel. I enjoyed it so much, from start to finish. Ignore the terrible fluff of a cover and turn off your grownup bra...

    Wonderful middle grade tale as two best friends build pillow forts and discover portals to adventures that will amaze and delight readers of all ages. The author has taken regular activities and sprinkled imagination and creativity throughout, making this end of summer story of friends...

    Missing her best friend, who is away at camp, and her mother, whose work has taken her away from home more than it probably should, Maggie creates a pillow fort in her living room which has given her hours of enjoyment as she pretends to be a spy. When Abby returns home, they create a ...

    Thank you to Will Taylor for providing #collabookation with an ARC to share. I will admit, right off, that I thought a book about two girls building a perpetual pillow fort was going to be a quick, fluffy read. I stand corrected! Maggie and Abby are next door neighbors and best frien...

    Special thanks to Will Taylor for sending an advance reading copy to our #bookexcursion group. All opinions are my own. Missing her best friend Abby who has been away at Camp Cantaloupe for six weeks, Maggie builds a pillow fort in her living room. When Abby returns, Maggie is exci...

    Absolutely adorable! Halfway through this book, I had to pause my reading... to build my own pillow fort! The rest of the book was devoured from inside Fort Book Nook. :-) The characters--and their internal conflicts--are so very relatable and universal. The emotion in which author...

    I don't know about you but building forts was something I loved doing as a child and quite honestly still love doing with my own kids (especially when I can fit in them) and this book was the perfect combination of magic and wonder to add to my love for forts! Two best friends who were...

    I received this through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Maggie has spent her summer alone, since her mother missed the camp cut-off date and just her best friend Abby was able to go. While waiting for her best friend to return, she has created an epic pillow fort. When ...

    This book was so freaking adorable! From the very beginning I loved Maggie's voice. Every time she said "cucumber casserole" or "whale poop" I was cracking up. The world created through the pillow forts was so detailed and fun, I wished I could hop inside of it right now. Teleporting t...

    If my ten year old self had written a book, this is exactly where my imagination would have gone. Forts were my life, and Will does an amazing job of capturing the simplicity and the magic that surrounds you when you build a fort. You follow Maggie and Abby's friendship as Abby retur...

    *I received and early DRC from edelweiss and the publisher. This does not affect my review* This book was epically cute. I'm 34 and i desperately want to build a pillow fort now. I got a bit annoyed with Maggie at times, but in all honesty, I was a lot like her at her age. I felt li...

    Books like this remind me that I should read books geared towards younger readers more often. This was a very enjoyable story that lead me to want to learn more about Maggie & Abby's future adventures (I hope there will be some). I would recommend this for 4th grade readers or hi...

    This was a book I picked out for my 10-year-old son. He told me it was the best book he?s read ?since Harry Potter? so of course I had to read it too. Super-cute, though I do need to add Maggie?s mom to my list of WTF parents in YA literature. ...

    Absolutely delightful! ...

    A fun and imaginative story that takes readers to unexpected places. Will Taylor created a fantastic world here, and just in time to be the perfect summer read for kids ? especially 4th-6th graders. ...

    A fun read!! ...

    Ok, this was adorable. Really really great. Also it's got me craving cinnamon rolls. ...

    Goodreads giveaway ...

    One of the funniest MG books you'll read. Don't let the pillow fort theme Lisa Frank you into thinking it's too childish. Upper MG readers will still enjoy it. ...

    My friend wrote this book but I feel I can objectively say it is fantastic. I read it out loud to my baby while he ate and it was delightfully funny and imaginative. The voices of the characters feel very authentic; I highly recommend reading it aloud if you can. ...

    Books like this remind me that I should read books geared towards younger readers more often. This was a very enjoyable story that lead me to want to learn more about Maggie & Abby's future adventures (I hope there will be some). I would recommend this for 4th grade readers or hi...

    Thank you to Will Taylor for providing #collabookation with an ARC to share. I will admit, right off, that I thought a book about two girls building a perpetual pillow fort was going to be a quick, fluffy read. I stand corrected! Maggie and Abby are next door neighbors and best frien...

    This book was so freaking adorable! From the very beginning I loved Maggie's voice. Every time she said "cucumber casserole" or "whale poop" I was cracking up. The world created through the pillow forts was so detailed and fun, I wished I could hop inside of it right now. Teleporting t...

    This was a book I picked out for my 10-year-old son. He told me it was the best book he?s read ?since Harry Potter? so of course I had to read it too. Super-cute, though I do need to add Maggie?s mom to my list of WTF parents in YA literature. ...

    Absolutely delightful! ...

    A fun and imaginative story that takes readers to unexpected places. Will Taylor created a fantastic world here, and just in time to be the perfect summer read for kids ? especially 4th-6th graders. ...

    A fun read!! ...

    Ok, this was adorable. Really really great. Also it's got me craving cinnamon rolls. ...

    One of the funniest MG books you'll read. Don't let the pillow fort theme Lisa Frank you into thinking it's too childish. Upper MG readers will still enjoy it. ...

    My friend wrote this book but I feel I can objectively say it is fantastic. I read it out loud to my baby while he ate and it was delightfully funny and imaginative. The voices of the characters feel very authentic; I highly recommend reading it aloud if you can. ...

    This was a book I picked out for my 10-year-old son. He told me it was the best book he?s read ?since Harry Potter? so of course I had to read it too. Super-cute, though I do need to add Maggie?s mom to my list of WTF parents in YA literature. ...

    Absolutely delightful! ...

    A fun and imaginative story that takes readers to unexpected places. Will Taylor created a fantastic world here, and just in time to be the perfect summer read for kids ? especially 4th-6th graders. ...

    A fun read!! ...

    E ARC from Edelweiss Plus Maggie has had a long and lonely summer before sixth grade with her best friend and neighbor, Abby, away at camp. Her mother, a children's oncologist, is constantly at work, so Maggie has taken over the living room with a huge pillow fort, mainly becaus...

    I am not even remotely embarrassed to say that I love this book with my entire heart. What a genuinely funny, smart, magical, empathetic, and 100% creative middle grade novel. I enjoyed it so much, from start to finish. Ignore the terrible fluff of a cover and turn off your grownup bra...

    Wonderful middle grade tale as two best friends build pillow forts and discover portals to adventures that will amaze and delight readers of all ages. The author has taken regular activities and sprinkled imagination and creativity throughout, making this end of summer story of friends...

    Missing her best friend, who is away at camp, and her mother, whose work has taken her away from home more than it probably should, Maggie creates a pillow fort in her living room which has given her hours of enjoyment as she pretends to be a spy. When Abby returns home, they create a ...

    Thank you to Will Taylor for providing #collabookation with an ARC to share. I will admit, right off, that I thought a book about two girls building a perpetual pillow fort was going to be a quick, fluffy read. I stand corrected! Maggie and Abby are next door neighbors and best frien...

    Special thanks to Will Taylor for sending an advance reading copy to our #bookexcursion group. All opinions are my own. Missing her best friend Abby who has been away at Camp Cantaloupe for six weeks, Maggie builds a pillow fort in her living room. When Abby returns, Maggie is exci...

    Absolutely adorable! Halfway through this book, I had to pause my reading... to build my own pillow fort! The rest of the book was devoured from inside Fort Book Nook. :-) The characters--and their internal conflicts--are so very relatable and universal. The emotion in which author...

    I don't know about you but building forts was something I loved doing as a child and quite honestly still love doing with my own kids (especially when I can fit in them) and this book was the perfect combination of magic and wonder to add to my love for forts! Two best friends who were...

    I received this through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Maggie has spent her summer alone, since her mother missed the camp cut-off date and just her best friend Abby was able to go. While waiting for her best friend to return, she has created an epic pillow fort. When ...

    This book was so freaking adorable! From the very beginning I loved Maggie's voice. Every time she said "cucumber casserole" or "whale poop" I was cracking up. The world created through the pillow forts was so detailed and fun, I wished I could hop inside of it right now. Teleporting t...

    If my ten year old self had written a book, this is exactly where my imagination would have gone. Forts were my life, and Will does an amazing job of capturing the simplicity and the magic that surrounds you when you build a fort. You follow Maggie and Abby's friendship as Abby retur...
