Heartwood Hotel by Kallie George (158)

This is a wonderful middle grade novel for kids.  It is a super-cute story, one that will transport kids to realms of magic and what it means to have a true home.

When Mona the house stumbles across the wondrous world of the Heartwood Hotel in the middle of a storm, she desperately hopes they’ll let her stay.

As it turns out, Mona is precisely the maid they need at the grandest hotel in Fernwood Forest, where animals come from far and wide for safety, luxury and comfort. But it’s not all acorn souffle and soft, moss-lined beds.

Danger lurks, and as it approaches, Mona has to use her wits to protect the place she’s come to love. Because this hotel is more than a warm shelter to spend the night. it might also be a home.

This delightfully enticing start of a new chapter-book series, sweetly illustrated by Stephanie Graegin, tells a tale of friendship, courage and community by the author.

I loved the story. It transported me to a place that I called home, each home that I lived in.
