OK—I really wanted to love this book. I just liked it. It’s fine to realize that a book isn’t quite my “cup of tea”.
Onward.

Click the “book” above to read the story. VERY cool.
The Little Android is a retelling of The Little Mermaid, set in the world of The Lunar Chronicles by New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer. When android Mech6.0 saves the life of a handsome hardware engineer, her body is destroyed and her mechanics discover a glitch in her programming. Androids aren’t not meant to develop unpractical reasoning or near-emotional responses…let alone fall in love.
Remember Friday’s Carnivores?
It is fantastic!
I got to read it aloud three times—AND share it with my colleagues.
I’m so lucky.
I told you I’d post the trailer. Here it is.
(Pssst: that’s illustrator Dan Santat as the great white!)
Here are the pics that illustrator Dan Santat saw.

What were PARENTS reading last week? Let’s check it out… (Thank you, commenters, for contributing to our book awareness. Reading is not a “school thing”.)

For every parent who leaves a comment on TODAY’S POST with what you’re reading, I’ll give your child a BUSTED ticket…

I’m nearing the end of this one. Wow. My students will enjoy reading it when they are a bit older.
