Little Birds, Little Birds, In the Cinnamon Tree
Birds with swords. Look, it’s adorable that it was written by a 14-year-old girl. That’s cute as can be. And the writing isn’t too terrible and the pictures are cute. That said, it’s not a good book. And what with its presence on the New York Times Bestseller list, I doubt it needs the publicity.
Kvetch kvetch kvetch.
