A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

CAFE LILY'S REVIEW:

This is a cute children’s book that is filled with humor and colorful illustrations that go perfectly with the riddles.  This is the first book in the Tales From The Back Pew Series that I’ve seen and I thought it was entertaining.   This book would be good for younger readers who are still learning to read, or as a fun read aloud for parents to share with their children.
