Book Review of Flying Fingers

This is a book review written by my good friend Maya, who is a very talented author. Here's the review:


Flying Fingers is astonishing, considering the age of the author, seven-year-old Adora Svitak. A must-read, Flying Fingers is filled with enticing stories and poems that are surprisingly mature. Adora has proved herself worthy of praise and of the honor of seeing her name in print…so it’s no wonder that her fast and furious typing ceases only to allow the world to admire the literary masterpiece she has created. Meanwhile, after devouring Flying Fingers, Adora’s fans must await with anticipation her poetry collection, Dancing Fingers.

  1. Dear Adora,
    Your book, Flying Fingers is filled with fascinating, adventurous, and even funny stories. This book to me should precede in the line of well-written books. I truly gives a clear message to me, and other people, that learning is a tool you can master by writing. I give your book five stars! Keep on writing Adora!
