Which is why I believe that childhood, and what you do with it, is so enormously stressed in Liesel and Po. Every step of the way, you get a clear 3rd person picture of the thought processes in each of the characters. That in itself is a tall order for a kids’ book. Po had remembered how to lie. The imaginative magical story taking place in an age without the sun can really be interestin The evil stepmother is just plain ugly, inside and out.

It was paced beautifully and almost every character got their moment of development, which made the story much more magnificent. More reviews and more at Cuddlebuggery Book Blog. Hey, that’s half of the appeal of the Disney movies, after all – the lovely clarity that they bring to our world. I still enjoyed it, though, and I think teens would still find it a fun, quick read.

What I also found great was how every characters had a big part in the novel. Come around, everyone, and join me and my cat in this amazing review of a truly amazing book. Lauren Oliver’s Liesl and Po is a beautiful, painfully moving declaration of love, loss, yearning, despair and discovery. Knowing that each sentence has personal significance for Lauren made it much more meaningful. This is one I know I’ll be revisiting in the future.

Want to see more bookish things from me? Not only was this dark, it was also touching and heartwarming at the same time. Each and every one of us has their own purpose in this world.


Meanwhile, there is Will who is also horribly mistreated by his adoptive parent, an Alchemist. So, to finish up, I recommend getting Lisel and Po the second it comes out. Over the past few months Po had seen a dim light appear at the edges of its consciousness at the same time every night, and next to that light was a living one, a girl; lirsl in in the glow of that light the living girl made drawings.

I have wanted an ARC forever.

Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver

With a great mix of characters and themes, I’m pleased my local library had this to offer! The same evil stepmother who locked Liesl in the attic since her father got sick – which was a year ago. All nad while, the evil Alchemist, the Lady Premiere and Liesl’s own evil stepmother are hot on their tales; each with their own diabolical agendas.

Both Liesl and Po are lonely, but together they are less alone.

As an adult reader, I was completely taken away by this book. She meets Poa ghost, an “it” It’s a lovely and touching children’s book so lovingly described by Jim.

Oliveer Oliver really outdid herself with this one, it was written amazingly. And I believe that Ms Oliver did a stellar job at portraying all of this.

Liesl & Po

Po became the instrument to help Liesl finish her mission, saving his soul in the process. After the death of her father, Liesl has been locked into the attic of her house by her step-mother Augusta. Lately it has really bothered me that some authors seem to try lieal capitalize on their books and keep writing more and more and more long after the story has been told and done and beaten like a dead horse. But he was still funny and cute. Not to mention, this little experiment has a frightening lack of controls.

Olivef and Bundle are dark ghosts who are attracted to Liesl’s drawings and Will is an orphaned alchemist’s apprentice who is attr I was immediately captivated by the cover of Liesl and Po.

I became fond of them and found that they were all precious to me. I guess I miss the in-between, the borderline that gives dimension to the world. View all 10 comments. I think my childhood has been scarred by the ending of Exupery’s The Little Princewhen I suddenly realized that the Prince may have not just simply gone back to his planet and his Rose.


It was actually pretty foreseeable from an adult standpoint. It must be hard for him to know qnd he can never touch her, express himself the way Will can.

Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver

There’s a heavily gothic vibe to this book, which takes place partly in the world of disembodied spirits and partly in an unnamed but vaguely Victorian world in which the sun hasn’t shone for five years, and the darkness carries over into assorted grotesque villains and their surroundings, especially the alchemist’s laboratory and its lovingly described inventory of body parts.

When Liesl, Oo and Po come together the three set out to help one another and most importantly help Liesl do what in ahd hearts of hearts she knows she must. Even when situations seemed very bleak, they did lo give up. Po’s referred to as “IT” and it’s interesting to see things from his perspective.

Liesl & Po Book Review

I recieved an ARC from a teen anr group that I’m on. Not that its hard to understand piesl although it isbut her intent is so clear that it is because I know exactly what the characters want and need that my own heart broke.

As the story unfolds, we are also introduced to a young orphaned boy named Will who is an apprentice to a well-known alchemist and how he was sent on retrieving an important box that contained great magic made by the alchemist.
