Our picks for May 2012...
Pigeon returns! This time he is absolutely, positively shocked when Duckling gets a cookie with nuts
just by asking politely. Hilarious, with a gentle lesson in manners, this is a fantastic read aloud and
Mo Willems at his best.
Three gloating circus pigs introduce their main attraction; the Wolf who won’t bite! No matter how
they torment Wolf, standing him on a stool, dressing him up, throwing knives at him, he won’t bite.
But it is possible for Wolf’s patience to last forever?
Sage is an orphan in the country of Carthya where civil war is brewing. Connor is a nobleman
with a plan that borders on treason. He is going to find four orphans, train them to impersonate
the long lost Prince Jaron, install the best one on the throne and eliminate the other three.
And Sage fits the bill. But of course it doesn’t go as smoothly as just that. There is adventure,
conspiracy, betrayal, and a twist ending that make this an exciting and enjoyable read!
I giggled, laughed, and guffawed my way through this new middle reader. Hiaasen creates a world
in the Florida Everglades that is so exciting and surprising that you’ll never want to leave! It has two
kids named after fish, an animal wrangler with a concussion, a stuffed alligator (and a real one too!),
and a reality survival t.v. show gone awry. It’s unlike any book you’ve ever read, and you’ll love it!
