I have to keep this short since Downton Abbey is almost on!
These are the books I read:
-Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite by Barry Deutsch [*]- I’m so glad I immediately got my hands on the sequel to “Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword!” While I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first, I definitely will keep on reading these books. I already can’t wait for more!
-Wanda Witch and the Bullies by Rose Impey, Illustrated by Katherine McEwen
-Wanda Witch and the Wobbly Fang by Rose Impey, Illustrated by Katherine McEwen
-Wanda Witch and Too Many Frogs by Rose Impey, Illustrated by Katherine McEwen
-Wanda Witch and the Stray Dragon by Rose Impey, Illustrated by Katherine McEwen
There are so many things wrong with this series. Not all books have to teach a lesson, of course, but this one seemed to be trying to do so but failed either by not providing one or teaching the wrong lesson. It also seemed the US publication of the books were out of order. [X] [A to Z Picture Book Series Reading Challenge]
-Dodsworth in New York by Tim Egan
-Dodsworth in Paris by Tim Egan
-Dodsworth in London by Tim Egan
-Dodsworth in Rome by Tim Egan
I love the serialized aspects of these books. Sometimes the duck gets on my nerve but he is a likable character when he’s not purposely trying to be difficult. Kids will enjoy how the different personalities play off one another. [*- My Pick of the Week] [A to Z Picture Book Series Reading Challenge]

I only need to find authors whose last names begin with Q and X and who have written a series of 3 or more picture books (or early readers) to complete my A to Z Picture Book Reading Challenge! Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

I posted my 2013 Reading Challenges (as well as a recap of some older ones) earlier this week.
I’m working on a post about Stephen Savage and his visit to our store. It’ll be up later in the week.
I picked up “Castle Waiting” by Linda Medley off the library Staff Picks. I’m hoping to finish “Ten Little Indians” this week.
