My Monday posts are generally just a highlight of what I've been reading during the week so if you'd like to see all that I've been reading, follow my Goodreads page.
Last week I read and loved:
Firekeeper's Daughter by Angeline Boulley
I finished this just in time to discover that Angeline Boulley is coming to my local library next week. The 2022 Printz Award winner is a slow burn of a mystery where the setting of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan reads like a character in the novel.
Knight Owl by Christopher Denise
|Stunning, clever, and cinematic illustrations. Put this one in your Mock Caldecotts.|
Chester Van Chime Forgot How to Rhyme by Avery Monsen, illustrated by Abby Hanlon
A fun and clever book that sets teachers and kids up for the perfect read aloud scenario... text that you think is predictable, but the author humorously leaves you tearing your hair out while laughing at the same time that the text cadence does not end in the predicable rhyme.
Duet by Elise Broach
Currently reading with my ears:
The Most Dazzling Girl in Berlin by Kip Wilson
Purchasing books from any of the above Bookshop affiliate links support independent bookstores and gives me a small percentage of the sale.
I was wondering why the name Elise Broach sounded so familiar, and remembered that I had really liked her novel Masterpiece, with a talking bug and art as the theme. Very curious to see what she does with music and a bird!ReplyDelete
How exciting to meet Angeline Boulley. I did love that book. I know I'll smile over Knight Owl, & have noted the others, Beth. Thanks!ReplyDelete
I love the illustrations in Knight Owl!ReplyDelete
