The Children's Librarians at Menasha Public Library have begun their 40 Book Reading Challenge. We've posted our lists on the glass display case in the front of the room if you'd like to take a peek. Here are a couple books that I have finished in the last week or so...
Jellaby and Jellaby: Monster in the City by Kean Soo
Last year I read Jellaby and found it hard to wait for the second book to come out in the series. Excellent cliff hanger! So this was a great Summer Reading find while I would browsing at the library.
The Story of Wolverine by Michael Teitelbaum
One of my friends is well versed in the X-men storyline, while I'm a newbie to the comic world. I picked it up to brush on my knowledge of Wolverine and was quite amazed at the complex storyline of his life. I can't wait to see the X-Men Origins movie on Wolverine.
The Hinky-Pink by Megan McDonald
Meet Anabel - not Anabella. The -ella ending in a name equals royalty like Cinderella or Isabella. A new fairytale to read that is an old story retold and brought back the original city of Firenze. It's a quick and fun read for early chapter book readers.
Gettysburg: the Graphic Novel by C. M. Butzer
Graphic novels are my summer reading favorites, so this was an immediate checkout once I read the title. It's a thin book rich with information from first-person letters, speeches, and other primary sources. Butzer did a wonderful job on research and illustrations. A definite checkout for those who love graphic novels or history.
