Title: Little Orphan Anvil
Author: Joseph Beekman
Little Orphan AnvilDate Published: October 7th 2011

Description:  A Tale of Magic and Metal...

A tale of an orphaned robot and its journey to help save a realm from the rule of

an evil witch. When the Land of Iron and Anvil is brought to ruin by a wicked storm, the

robot becomes lost in the wilds of the lands. But after being discovered by a little boy

and his dog, the robot is reunited with its creator and together they set off to the Land of

Shadows to free a group of orphans from the dark magic of the witch…and save an entire

realm from her rule!

Review: This book starts with a little robot named Anvil, she is all most destroyed by a big storm created by a witch who hates everything everything made of iron and thinks they should be destroyed.
Will, the man who made Anvil sets off on a  a mission to the land of shadows and with him goes another little orphan  named sonny and his dog. they want to find a way to set Anvil free and the land  of iron free from the evil witch.Along the way they meet others who want the same and they come together to set everything free from the evil witch and her darkness.

Over all view:  Oh wow, what an amazing story. It gets you gripped right from the start with the action but I will say it isn't to graphic so children will be able to read this book as well as adults. The writing in this book flows freely and  its a really easy  read. I found I couldn't put the book down because I needed to know what was going to happen to Anvil and her friends. I'm going to say a big well done to Joseph for this wonderful book that I was able to sit down and enjoy with my children. If you haven't read this book then please take the time to read it because you will enjoy it, I promise you.
