Delilah Dusticle by A.J. York

Delilah Dusticle has special powers, she can completely eradicate dust. With her quiver pouch of special dusters Delilah can run up walls and reaches places others just can’t. As a maid in the Fenchurch-Whittington house Delilah’s unusual skills soon lead to her being promoted to Chief Dust Eradicator and Remover. Until one day a broken heart leads to her powers taking an expected turn. 

This is the first in a series of touching and funny stories about Delilah Dusticle. Follow her on a journey of self-discovery, friendship and adventure.

Delilah Dusticle is a short read at only thirty-two pages, but it containsa full adventure with Delilah Dusticle. It's geared toward middle grade children, but there's entertainment value for everyone.

Delilah has super powers! She can eradicate dust in the hardest to reach places... until she's fired.  Then Delilah is sad and mopes around, until a chance meeting with her former employer's son's wife, Abi.  Then things begin to look up again for Delilah.

Great characters, easy to read and entertaining with solid values to be learned in this story.  The only suggestion is that I believe this book should be illustrated.  It would really add another element to the story for the young ones.  But, all in all, a great read!

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
