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.
I have been anticipating this book for months! I love McKinley’s art and the story is cute. I have considered dressing my son up like one of the characters. I love that the mummy’s curse is that she has to speak in rhyme. A fun book to read this Halloween.
This is the second time that I’ve checked this one out of the library. I love the idea of a spa for witches and all the crazy spa-related treatments are awesome. The rhyme is well done too. I really like the color palette and the illustrations are great. Another great October read.
I have not read the first book (PEANUT BUTTER & BRAINS) but I will definitely be checking it out after reading this one. I love the silliness of the plot–aliens arrive armed with ray guns full of cosmic grape jelly. The illustrations are bright and fun. Great book for anyone who likes zombies, aliens or peanut butter & jelly.
I saw this on the New Arrivals shelf at the library and I decided to check it out because I have a toddler at home. It is really fun. A boy’s ball goes flying out the window and the book follows him and his grandpa as they chase it across the city. I love that each letter is a sound in the scene. It was fun to direct my toddler’s attention to what the ball and boy were doing on each page.
