Maggie McGillicuddy's Eye for Trouble by Susan Hughes, Brooke Kerrigan (Illustrated by)

Maggie is older and alone in her home so she's excited to see new neighbors moving in.  They have a small dog and a little boy.  It doesn't take long for her to see dangers from her porch...

Kids Can Press and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 4th.

Maggie has a good imagination and sees a tiger in her yard (cat's shadow on a fence).  She also sees a big snake (tree root) and even an eagle.  So she watches out for the young one.  She does warn him not to go out in the street after his ball when there is a car going by, but that one was a real danger.

When she invites him to visit, he sees other animals in her yard.  And as they get more visits in it looks like they could be living in Jurassic Park instead of small neighborhood in a small town.  

This is wonderful way to view things with an imagination.  It's almost like finding shape in the clouds.  Have you looked around carefully lately?
