1. Chickenhare by Chris Grine, 157 pp, RL 3

Chickenhare by Chris Grine was published by Scholastic's Graphix imprint in 2013. It was originally published, in black and white, by Dark Horse Comics in 2006, with Book 2, Fire in the Hole, which you can preview here, coming out in 2008. A third book, Fish & Grymps, was planned but never published.  I'm pretty sure I would have instantly loved Chickenhare in its original form, but the

3. Flight of the Phoenix (Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist) by R L La Fevers, illustrated by Kelly Murphy, 138 pp, RL 3

First reviewed in 2009, RL La Fevers's Nathaniel Fludd: Beastologist series is the PERFECT next step for readers ready to move on from Magic Tree House! Rich with mythological creatures, adventure and airplanes, this series is wonderfully written and illustrated. And, all 4 books are in paperback! Before I start slinging superlatives, I need to thank RL La Fevers, author of the equally

5. SHEEP by Valerie Hobbs, 115 pp, Reading Level 3

First published 2/19/2010, SHEEP is a MUST read, even for those of you who, like me, are squeamish when it comes to animal stories. The hardships faced by most literary animals, the ones who haven't been anthropomorphized, are usually more than I can bear. But, in SHEEP, Valerie Hobbs balances the realities of the life of a homeless dog with a memorable journey and kind humans along the way.

10. The Dream Stealer by Sid Fleischman, illustrated by Peter Sís, 89pp, RL 3

The Dream Stealer is now in paperback! The Dream Stealer by Sid Fleischman teams up again with Peter Sís, his illustrator for the Newbery award winner, The Whipping Boy. As with The Whipping Boy, Fleischman takes on a story with a fairy tale feel, this time setting it in Mexico instead of a kingdom in "long ago and far away." The Dream Stealer begins with the line, "Muchachos and

11. The Willoughbys written an dillustrated by Lois Lowry 157pp RL3

The Willoughbys by Lois Lowry is in paperback! For me and other adult readers of children's books, The Willoughbys is a tasty little treat. For young readers, I am not sure what they will make of it. And it matters to me what they will make of it. The Willoughbys is, from start to finish, a playful joke, a parody that pokes fun at "old fashioned" children's stories while at the same

My Forever Friends is now in paperback! With My Forever Friends, the fourth book in her Forver Friends series, Julie Bowe brings (almost) to a close the eventful fourth grade year of Ida May. When we first met Ida May at the start of the school year in My Last Best Friend, she was mourning the loss of her best friend, Elizabeth, who moved away.

15. The Fog Mound, Book 1: Travels of Thelonious, by Susan Schade and Jon Buller, 214 pp RL 3

The Fog Mound trilogy by Susan Schade and Jon Buller, bills itself as part graphic novel part heroic fantasy, and an adventure like no other! And it is all true! I LOVE this book! A week of reading books with squirrels as main characters - realistic squirrels, cartoonish squirrels, villainous quasi-medieval squirrels - has lead me here to Travels of Thelonious (published in

16. Legends of Zita the Spacegirl, written and illustrated by Ben Hatke, 224 pp, RL 3

If you do not know Zita, please read my review of the first book in this amazing series by the delightful Ben Hatke, Zita the Space Girl. While I love the story lines that Hatke writes for his graphic novels, I think it is his illustrations that really draw me (and my son, who gobbles these books in one sitting) in. While the space creatures may be odd, and a tiny bit fierce at times,

17. Earthling! by Mark Fearing, 255 pp, RL 3

Even a relatively short graphic novel, depending on the creator's use of words and images, can feel like a combination of reading a 250 page book and seeing a feature length film by the time you get to the last page. Even so, I am a bit greedy when it comes to graphic novels and I always think, "The longer, the better!" That's one thing that is so exciting to me about Mark Fearing's debut

18. Bananas in My Ears: A Collection of Nonsense Stories, Poems, Riddles & Rhymes by Michael Rosen, illustrated by Quentin Blake, 79 pp, RL 3

Do  you have a collection of children's poetry and stories in your home right now? I'll wager you don't. Oh sure, you have Where the Sidewalk Ends and maybe a fairy tale collection or two, but that's not quite the same. Every house needs a book like Bananas in My Ears: A Collection of Nonsense Stories, Poems, Riddles and Rhymes by Michael Rosen (We're Going on a Bear Hunt, among others) and

20. The Giants and the Joneses, by Julia Donaldson, pictures by Greg Swearingen, 224pp RL 3

I first ran this review in 2008! It's been getting a lot of hits lately and, over the last few years I have become a huge fan of Julia Donaldson's brilliant picture books, so I thought I'd post this again for those of you who haven't heard of this book or her other works.   Julia Donaldson may be known to you as the writer of the wonderful rhyming picture books, The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo's

22. Zorgamazoo written by Robert Paul Weston, illustrated by Victor Rivas Villa, 281 pp, RL 3

This year in celebration of National Poetry Month, I want to celebrate by featuring books written in verse instead of books of poetry. I can't think of a better way to start this off than with Robert Paul Weston's marvel, Zorgamazoo. Written entirely in quatrains and couplets, Zorgamazoo screams to be read out loud, although is just as entertaining read on one's own. But, before I share the
