Bonjour! I've been doing a lot of reading lately, which my wonderful fluffy muffin of a cat approves of because it means lots of cuddle time in the blue chair. Let me share with you (the books, not the cat):
Moongobble and Me: The Dragon of Doom by Bruce Coville
Edward is kind of bored in his hometown of Pigbone until Moongobble the magician-in-training moves to the abandoned cottage and invites him to be his assistant. Edward soon learns that Moongobble has a long way to go before he becomes a master of magic, and watches as many objects are turned into...CHEESE! (I don't know about you, but that's a skill I'd be thrilled to have.) In order for the Society of Magicans not to kick him out, Moongobble must complete three tasks. The first task is to steal the Golden Acorns of Alcoona from the DRAGON OF DOOM!!! With the help of Urk the talking toad and the Rusty Knight, will Moongobble and Edward be able to outsmart the DRAGON OF DOOM??? Read this charming book for younger ones (I think anyone under the age of eight is perfect for this series) and find out!
The Legend of Spud Murphy by Eoin Colfer
It's summer vacation for Will and Marty, but instead of summer camps, swimming lessons or trips to the zoo, the boys are stuck doing something educational: reading books at the library. There's only one problem: Spud Murphy, the rule-giving, children-intolerant librarian. When the brothers have trouble following the rules, Spud is after them with ninja-like skills. Have the boys met their match in Spud Murphy? Can reading at the library become a fun summer activity? You should know the answer to this, but check this book out to see how it works for Will and Marty.
Clementime by Sara Pennypacker
Don't forget to come to the library this Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. for our Christmas Sing Along. Memorial School Choir will perform for us, and then we'll sing some classics together with Disney characters.
