This past week I got 2 books finished. I know. Pathetic.
1) The Eyes of Want (book three of the Leven Thumps series) by Obert Skye
In this book Leven travels into the realm of Foo to protect a secret that could destroy an entire race of creatures and ultimately all of Reality. I'll give it 3 1/2 stars. I'll probably read the next one just to see what happens next.
2) Otis Dooda: Strange but True by Ellen Potter
This is an odd book. I'll give this one 3 stars. The 2 - 4 grader boys will enjoy this one. It's full of lame boy humor. Otis moves to New York City and strange things happen. For example, on the first day Otis is cursed by potted plant boy. This was the book I was teasing the third and fourth graders with earlier. I didn't read very much out loud. (Definitely not the part about "whizzing off the porch". Even though I have students who would totally relate. It's a living in the country kind of thing. Well, maybe a little boy thing!)
I'm currently reading Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck
Hopefully, I can get this one ready quickly. A couple of the upper grade girls read it last spring. This is the first book in the trilogy. Hmmmmm I'm so ready for a "not to be continued" book. Maybe I'll search the stacks for some picture books I've not read.
