“The Magic Poof” by Stephen Hodges-Review-@Mondayblogs #MONDAYBLOGS

Good day everyone, I’m Neva Squires-Rodriguez the author of “The Liliana Series,” a Contemporary Romantic Suspense series that can be found here and a new columnist to Reflejos Newspaper in Chicago-land.  This week I am delighted to review and share with you “The Magic Poof” by Stephen Hodges.


First let me tell you, I was hesitant to review this book based on the fact that it was about a poof of a seven-year old girls hair, but then I read it and was so glad that I chose to review it because the storyline is actually really cute.  It totally reminded me of my God-daughters hair when she was little, because given the fact that she is half African-American, her mother and grandmother didn’t know what to do with her hair.  If this book was out when my God-Daughter was little, I’m sure she it would have boosted her confidence, plus there are many imaginative adventures that happen all because of Ange-Marie, the protagonists hair.  She tells it to take form and her hair listens.  The whole idea is simply too cute!  In fact, I can totally see this story being made into a series for PBS, Nickelodeon or Disney.  It kind of reminds me of “The Magic School Bus,” a series that I enjoy watching with my children.

The author Stephen Hodges, is actually doing a “kickstarter” here, in hopes that it will become a series.  Wishing him the best of luck on this fun story!

Please check the “The Magic Poof” out, it’s a great children’s book, I would say age range 3-10 and I’m giving it a five-star rating!
