It's Monday! What are you reading? From Picture Books to Young Adult - 9/16/13
It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee from Unleashing Readers have adapted it to focus on Picture Books to Young Adult Books.
Here is what stood out of from the pile this week...
The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppett (Origami Yoda #4) by Tom Angleberger (Abrahms, August 6, 2013) - I finally got to the latest book in the Origami Yoda series. This one ends with a cliffhanger of sorts. When does book 5 come out?
Mitchell Goes Bowling by Hallie Durand; Illustrated by Tony Fucile (Candlewick, September 10, 2013) - This follow up to Mitchell's License is wonderful for a good laugh.
No Monkeys, No Chocolate by Melissa Stewart, Allen Young ; Illustrated by Nicole Wong (Charlesbridge Publishing, August 1, 2013) - I reviewed this one last week. This is a definite favorite of mine.
The Great Trouble: A Mystery of London, the Blue Death, and a Boy Called Eel by Deborah Hopkinson (Knopf Books, September 10, 2013)- Another book that I reviewed last week, The Great Trouble is part historical fiction and part mystery.
The Girl and the Bicycle by Mark Pett (Simon & Schuster, April 29, 2014) - If you enjoyed The Boy and the Airplane by Pett, this is another wordless picture book with a great lesson. However, it won't be out until spring 2014.
So, what are you reading?
