It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? – Book Giveaway!

The weekly post where I recap some of the KidLit books I’ve been reading. Ocasionally, I’ll also talk about some adult fiction books as well.
Be sure to check out Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers to see what other Kidlit readers are reading. Because, you know, we can never have too many books in our TBR piles.

Middle Grade

by Cassie Beasley
(Penguin Young Readers, 2017)
This book is absolutely beautifully written. I love middle grade because I find the stories engaging. Not only is Tumble and Blue  a fun story, it is expertly written. Read my full review here.

Picture Book

by Ben Hatke
(First Second, 2016)
Another fantastic read. This book is perfect for anyone who enjoys the game Dungeons and Dragons or just epic fantasies like The Hobbit. It takes the genre and turns it on its head. And Ben Hatke’s illustrations are always wonderful.

  1. I really agree with everything you wrote about Ben Hatke. The Mighty Jack graphic novel series and Zita The Spacegirl are very popular in my library. We are eager to see Mighty Jack 3.


  2. I borrowed I'm just no good at rhyming – but ended up returning it to the library, unread. Will have to find it again. Love Ben Hatke's graphic novels, so will definitely need to find the Goblin book. I need some fantasy reads right now, for serious.
