[***] Fans of Elephant and Piggie can do themselves a favor and pick this book up because they will love it!
[**] A boy’s books are disappearing. And, the culprit is a rather surprising critter.
[***] I hadn’t even known about this book until I discovered it on a shelf in Daly City library where they serve a large Filipino demographic. It was interesting to see all the differences from the more familiar fairy tale. Instead of the fairy godmother, there’s the Spirit of the Forest. Instead of the Prince finding her shoe after a ball, he finds a ring in her magical garden (unbeknownst to him) and she must find him to save him. This makes me want to read other countries’ Cinderella stories!
Imaginative Dory is back and so are all her friends. To her family’s dismay, all of them have been make-believe so her siblings are suspicious of her new-found BFF. The charm of the first book is here aplenty but the story I found a bit lacking. Still, a worthy follow-up that readers will enjoy.

Publishes July 7th.
A teenage boy’s head is removed from his cancer ridden body, cryogenically frozen for five years, and put on another teenage boy’s body (who had died of brain cancer). With a new lease on life, still-sixteen-year-old Travis Coates must navigate a world with his now-adult friends and continue to suffer through high school.
With all the topics to possibly be tackled, I was disappointed there was so much focus on him trying to get his then-girlfriend back. An enjoyable read nonetheless.
Expect a review for this book during Wednesday’s Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge post:
