Young Miss Holmes, Casebook 3-4
Young Miss Holmes, Casebook 3-4 - Kaoru Shintani,Shintani

This volume branches out more from the Holmes canon. It develops these particular characters. Nora even gets a whole chapter to herself. I wasn't a huge fan of her backstory. The story itself is quite progressive in many ways even though it's set in Victorian England, so it was odd to me that g***y was used to describe Nora and the people who raised her.

 

There's also a crossover with another manga I've never heard of (and now can't remember). Without any knowledge of those characters and their stories I was still able to understand that part of the casebook just fine. So it seemed kind of strange, but didn't ruin my reading experience.

Flat Stanley
Flat Stanley - Jeff Brown,Scott Nash,Macky Pamintuan

 

While I have seen Flat Stanley used in guided reading for second grade, I personally would use this book for a fourth-grade project like my fourth-grade teacher did. To begin with, my teacher gave all of use three printouts of Stanley at the end of our third-grade year. This was because we would need to start on a project that we would have to complete the next year. Over the summer we were tasked with taking or sending Stanley to four different places outside of Alabama. By sending Stanley I mean that we were allowed to send Stanley to family members that either did not live in Alabama or were traveling somewhere outside of Alabama. During Stanley's visits, we were to take pictures of what he saw with him in the picture. Then once school started back we were two make two posters displaying the pictures we took and telling about the places Stanley visited. At the same time, we were reading the book in class in order to get the thought process behind this assignment. 

Although I absolutely loved this project and would totally use it in my classroom, I would change a few things. First off I would ask the third-grade teacher if she could present the book towards the end of the year. This way the students know the story and better understand this project. Secondly, I would not require the places Stanley visits to be outside of the state. Instead, I would probably just say it had to be outside the town or city in which I was teaching. I say this because not everyone can afford to go on vacations, but surely everyone could make a quick trip to a park or even the store. Also, I might even allow the students to use their house as a place Stanley visits. Lastly, I would not require Stanley to be in the pictures. This way any students that did not receive a Stanley at the end of the year or had moved to the school that year would not be punished because they did not have one. Other than that I would keep the whole project the same.

This is just dragging out now...
Gambit (1997) #3 (of 4) - Terry Kavanagh,Howard Mackie,Klaus Janson,Bill Sienkiewicz,Christie Scheele,Richard Starkings

Blargh.   This is turning out to be weird and it's just dragging out the story at this point.   And it's boring me a little. 

 

Will I finish?  Yes.  I still want to know what happens to Gambit and the angel, and there's only one more issue left.   But if there had been more, I probably won't slog through a fifth issue.

Curse of the Alpha: Episodes 3 & 4: A Tarker's Hollow Serial (Curse of the Alpha Box-Set Book 2) by Tasha Black
Curse of the Alpha: Episodes 3 & 4 - Tas... Curse of the Alpha: Episodes 3 & 4 - Tasha Black

Curse of the Alpha: Episodes 3 & 4: A Tarker's Hollow Serial (Curse of the Alpha Box-Set Book 2) by Tasha Black is a riveting paranormal book. It picks up where Episode 2 ended with Ainsley attempting to shift into her wolf to attack Julian Magie who had betrayed her.

It kept my attention from start to finish. I gave it five stars.

Ainsley wants to sell her parent's house and to leave the pack behind forever.

The wolves aren’t the strangest part of Tarker’s Hollow. There are shifters, ghosts, witches and warlocks.

 

The toughest wolf Ainsley must face is her own.

 

There are mature sexual situations in this story. It ends with a cliffhanger.
