I’m very impressed with how closely this graphic novel follows the Newbery-winning book:
 
This was a solid retelling, with thoughtful illustrations and interpretations of what L’Engle must have been thinking when she wrote the book. This is not a simple, easy read. It is thought-provoking and deep. ENJOY!
This came highly recommended, and I found it when I was scanning the library’s ebooks. It reminded me of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory… but in a library. There were so many puns and fun with books and literacy, all while the contestants tried to decode clues and—yes—escape from the awesome library.
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…

This is two prequel short stories to the Legend trilogy. Sweet.
I’ve never read Big Nate and I saw this in the library’s ebook section. I’m trying not to laugh… but it’s tough.
I’ve listened to a bunch of this on audio, but now I’m going to be having weekly discussions on the chapters with others on Facebook. Should be interesting.

Excited about this one after the trailer, reading reviews and hearing recommendations.

  2. I finished Kingdom Keepers #4 and have just started #5. This one is going to take place on the Disney Magic. My honeymoon was 4 days in Disney World and 3 days on the Disney Magic so I’m very excited to see how the book plays out on the ship 🙂

      • I love everything Disney so the books are fun. I can visualize a lot of the settings for the books, and they bring up old, happy memories.

  3. I’m reading Second Honeymoon by James Patterson. If you like mysteries this book is so good I can’t put it down. It follows 2 serial killers. Excellent read.
