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 always enjoy when a fractured fairy tale is done well. I read Little Red by Bethan Woollvin and thought it was good so I had high hopes for this one. It did not disappoint. The humor was right up my alley. I also like how Woollvin uses a limited color palette in her illustrations.
The illustrations totally make this book. Don’t get me wrong–the text is good too. I love all the subtle (and not so subtle) nods to sharks and shark movies. My toddler son snuggled up for multiple readings.
Yay for middle-grade zombie books. This is actually really cute and zany. It is a very mild horror story with some heart. You can read my full review here.
This book has been on my radar for quite awhile. So when my local librarian said that the audiobook was quite good, I checked it out. I love a good magical circus, and while this isn’t exactly a circus, it had that same feeling. It took me awhile to get used to how the main character described things visually, but overall the story was a lot of fun and I plan on picking up the next in the series.
