Coraline - Neil Gaiman
Coraline - Neil Gaiman
Why I haven't read this until now, I will never know, but I am so glad that I did!
It is a fun, magical and slightly scary tale for kids. I was drawn right into this weird world that Coraline has on the other side of a door. I really got to love the cat. What a character he turned out to be! The story itself was a great trip, as you would expect from this author.
Now I want to watch the animated film. Of course, I will be comparing the two.
Until then, read this one if you haven't already. It's one of his better books.

GOSSIP FROM THE GIRLS' ROOM by Rose Cooper
Gossip from the Girls' Room - Rose Cooper

Sofia runs a blog on the school computers. She listens in the girls' room to get her gossip. Naturally she only hears part of the story then adds what she wants to make it sound juicy. She is upset when Mia, the most popular girl in school, likes Andrew, Sofia's crush. Then just when she thinks it cannot get any worse, her mother starts substituting at her school. What will she do?

 

I found Sofia a hoot. She is exactly like the girls who aren't popular but want to be and since she has access to blogging she hopes that she will pick up more followers for it. She also has a lot of gossip about Mia. She practices for her blog with a notebook which she loses at times. Not good because who has it, who sees it, who reads it! Fortunately she finds it but who has read it? She hopes no one but she does not know for sure. I remember Mias from my school days and it was no different back then as now.

 

This is fun. I enjoyed the format of a notebook as she tells her story. I also enjoyed her artwork, especially the snarky comments. They are the most truthful and school is still the same.

The One And Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
The One and Only Ivan - Patricia Castelao,Katherine Applegate

What a beautiful story!
I love reading about animals, but to read it from the animals perspective is way cooler! It was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster though. Not every chapter had a happy ending. That's what made this story brilliant though. It captured everything you could imagine for that space and time. Once, I got choked up, had to put the book aside for a few minutes before finishing.
I look forward to The One and Only Bob.  So much so, in fact.

The Magic Misfits by Neil Patrick Harris
The Magic Misfits - Lissy Marlin,Neil Patrick Harris,Author
Love Neil Patrick Harris since his Doogie Houser days, and I know a lot of you are with me. I saw this debut book of his on sale and grabbed a copy. I was excited to see what he had in store for the literary world.
He didn't disappoint either!
What a fun adventure, reading about Carter and the friends he acquires. Plus there is a few magic tricks shared in the book that you can try and practice. There's a mathematical one that I will be doing to my peers often. It was just so much fun! 
I look forward to the next book in the series.
