Pippi's Printing Picks

Visiting schools and students is so much fun! I love sharing books with the boys and girls I meet. Some of my books I shared this month included...

The 43 Old Cemetery Road series by Kate Klise illustrated by M. Sarah Klise

#1: Dying to Meet You and #2: Over My Dead Body

These books are written through letters, illustrations, newspapers and more! The author includes play on words that are sure to please. It's a gentle and fun ghost story that I can't wait to read another from the Klise duo.

The Library of Doom series from Zone Books by Michael Dahl

The Library of Doom is the world's largest collection of strange and dangerous books. The Librarian's duty is to keep the books from falling into the hands of those who would use them for evil purposes. Evil books!? How grand! How chilling! You can do it, Librarian! Michael Dahl wrote an easy reader series with hints of mischief, madness and horror. Here is a listing of the current books in the Library of Doom series.

Other books that caught my interest include...



Counting to 100

January is a time to stay in and enjoy some books, cocoa, movies and blogs!

Pippi's Printing Picks

With so much technology it's easy to follow people around the world. You can follow them on their website, blog, facebook, twitter, flickr and so much more! Did you know before there was an internet, people would follow stories in books? A classic follow along story is Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson.

Since Harold's debut in 1955 other authors and illustrators continued the trend. More follow along stories include...



Snow!

The weather's getting colder, colder, colder.

My house is getting warmer, warmer, warmer.
