Review: Peanut Goes to School by Thea Harrison

peanut goes to schoolReviewed by Jen

If an author were to approach me and ask me if I’d like to read a 55 page book about a fast-growing 6-month old shifter-baby attending his first day of school, I would say no without a moment’s hesitation. Unless that author was Thea Harrison and that baby was Liam Cuelebre. Not only would I gleefully accept, I would walk away with a sweet and satisfying story that left me even more enamored of a series that I already loved like chocolate.

The story is exactly as advertised. Little Liam (aka Peanut) is growing so fast, he is physically and intellectually big enough for school, so Pia and Dragos send him to learn how to interact with other children.  What the blurb doesn’t tell you is how wonderfully charming and engaging Liam is.  Most of the story is told in his POV and we really get to see the character that is developing inside him.  He is such a fantastic blend of his parents!  I loved him.

Obviously, this isn’t a romance.  If you’re not already an Elder Races fan, this probably isn’t for you. But for those of us who are already invested in Pia and Dragos and the lore of the series, it’s really a treat.  The story is too short for me to get too much into the plot, but it says so much about Harrison’s great writing that she made me so interested in what was going on in the mind and heart of this child. I hope we get much more of Liam as he continues to grow.

Rating: B+
