Book Review of The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp by Kathi Appelt

Kathi Appelt’s The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp was published last year. As I was talking with one of the staff at our local bookstore, Blue Marble Books, he highly recommended this book as one of his favorite releases of 2013. Considering how many books they read through, that was a high enough recommendation for me to put this book on my list of must-reads!

Book Review of Frindle by Andrew Clements

Andrew Clements’ first chapter book, Frindle, has been around for a while, but I only heard about it recently. It was published in 1998, but I kept seeing it at the top of Amazon’s bestsellers for the 8-10 crowd, and I thought Paul might enjoy it. There are some illustrations in the copy I read, and it was fun to see the work of Brian Selznick (of The Invention of Hugo Cabret fame – you can read my review of that book here)

Neil Gaiman is a really prolific writer. I’ve heard great things about his books for adults and kids, but this is the first book of his that I have read. Fortunately, The Milk was published in the fall of 2013. It was highly recommended by a reader (thanks, Tiffany!), and we really enjoyed it!
