Books I Read this Week:
The Girl with the Ghost Machine by Lauren DeStefano
211 pages (ARC)
Recommended for grades 4-7
More to come on this title in the future, closer to publication. What I've got to say for now: Sad. Sad, sad, sad. Starts off sad, then punches you in the gut with more sad! Heavy, serious things to ponder beneath all that sad.
The Amazing Crafty Cat by Charise Mericle Harper
First Second, 2017
Realistic Fiction/Graphic Novel
Recommended for grades 2-5
Readers will think this crafty cat is in fact, a cat, but will soon be surprised to see that beneath those kitty ears is a young girl named Birdie. When Birdie dresses as Crafty Cat she gets into the crafting zone, which can help her problem solve (when a foodie disaster strikes) or delight her classmates (to salvage a birthday celebration). The back includes the projects made my Crafty Cat in this volume. More to come from this author!
