It's Monday! What are you reading? From Picture Books to YA - 5/6/13

It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Jen & Kellee from Teach Mentor Texts have adapted this to focus on Picture Books to Young Adult Books.

Here's what jumped out at me this past week...

Vader's Little Princess by Jeffrey Brown (Chronicle Books,  April 23, 2013) - This is a follow-up to Darth Vader and Son.  Definitely a fun read.  

Lunch Lady and the Video Game Villain by Jarrett J. Krosoczka (Random House, April 23, 2013) - Yay! Another Lunch Lady book. 

Frindle by Andrew Clements; Illustrated by Brian Selznick (Atheneum Books for Young Readers; 1996) - I missed this years ago, but was thinking about using this for a 3rd grade book club.  Definitely a great read and yes, I will be using it for that book club.

Miss Maple's Seeds by Eliza Wheeler (Nancy Paulsen Books, April 4, 2013) - Beautiful story with lovely illustrations.  I would pair this with Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney. 

So, what are you reading?
