Today is like Christmas for readers with so many highly anticipated books coming out. I’ve dubbed it #Bookmas at work. These are only the ones I’ve read and I’ve got so many books to take on to make a dent.
I read an advanced reader’s copy of this middle reader novel earlier this summer. I can see why people have been raving about this book. The concept is intriguing. A girl’s grandfather somehow manages to reverse the aging process and becomes a teenager living with her and her mom, his daughter. This book will no doubt get kids thinking about the big questions in and of life.
Welcome back, Alexander! What a pleasant surprise to see this book! Readers- new and old to the character and series- will find this troublemaker’s latest antics a delight!
What an absolutely adorable book! I can’t see anyone having any problem with this! As someone who gives the best hugs, I can relate. Someone did hug me recently, unexpectedly, and I withdrew into my safe place like a turtle sensing danger. But when I’m giving hugs, I’m sure it’s awesome for the recipient- like being embraced by an octopus finishing its fast.
Of all the cute picture books celebrating one’s differentiating trait and the power of friendship, this one definitely takes the cake- or, should I say, cupcake? Super adorable story and the cute illustrations just make you want to squeeze Elliot’s cheeks. I already want to read more of his adventures. I feel like I’m Eliot!
A visually stunning companion to Journey, which I loved. As far as sequels go, and it being the second book in a trilogy, this wordless picture book managed to stick with what made the first book great and infuse this one with a new sense of wonder and magic!
A sweet story about letting one’s imagination run free. Beautiful illustrations as usual!
