“Nickerbacher is an engaging story”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Judy Fletcher
Nickerbacher is an engaging story with good humor that will make adults and children laugh together. Also, it could open a conversation about their dreams and what could hold them back…. like to avoid negative opinions of others.
I like that the princess has a strong role in this story. It’s effective how the author weaves the message of Equal Rights with the journey of a dragon. Also, the idea of friends being there for each other is important. The narrative moves along in a fun, bright manor. All the characters that we encounter in this book are delightful.
