The True Story of the Three Little Pigs
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs! - John A. Scieszka

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs provides a new take on the traditional story of the three little pigs. Alexander T. Wolf offers a new perspective on the classic story.

This book received a Lexile score of AD570L, making it a book to be read by the teacher to a group of students. This book can be used to teach about perspectives, and that there are multiple sides to each story.

Mother Bruce
Mother Bruce by Higgins, Ryan T. (November 24, 2015) Hardcover - Ryan T. Higgins

Mother Bruce is a silly tale about a grumpy bear named Bruce, who accidentally comes to raise a flock of goslings. He tries to get rid of them, but to no avail.

Mother Bruce received a score of AD570L on the Lexile scale, making it a bit difficult for students to read independently. This would be a great book to use as a read aloud just for fun, or to teach sequence of events. This is a fun book that is humorous for both children and adults.

Vet in a Spin (All Creatures Great and Small #6)

Title: Vet in a Spin

Series: All Creatures Great and Small #6

Author: James Herriot

Rating: 3 of 5 Stars

Genre: Non-Fiction

Pages: 224

Format: Kindle digital scan

 

 

 

 

 

Synopsis:

 

James completes his pilot training and is all set to do his part in the RAF when a minor bit of surgery removes his A+ health rating and he loses his rating to fly. After kicking about, the RAF sends him back home to be a vet again.

 

Stories from his vet days are once again interspersed and make up the bulk of the book.

 

 

My Thoughts:

 

Another good edition of the Vet series. I really wish he'd done more about his actual time in the RAF though, as the little tidbits he doles out shows that he can tell much more than just animal stories.

 

The ending with him entering Darrowby, for the first time again, to start over and wondering if his vet skill have atrophied in the time he spent in RAF training is a good look at a young man who has done a lot but just isn't sure.

El Diablo (The Devil): The Good Ol' Boys Spin Off - Frank M. Robinson

I love a good alpha, dominating, anti-hero & this book did not disappoint! This was the first book I've read by this author & I have to say, I was really impressed. I loved how the storyline started off when Alejandro Martinez was a teenager & progressed to where he is now. As a feared crime boss. The author did a great job showing how Martinez is who is, why he is that way & the events that made him into El Diablo. Not only was this story well written, it was sexy as hell! I also loved Lexi. She was a spitfire, really held her own & did not back down. Especially against Martinez. I have to say, who Lexi is threw me for a loop. I thought I had it figured out but, nope! The author did a great job with that little twist! This book is an amazing book, sexy AF & well written. I can't wait for the next book in this series!

Six Of Crows - My bookish thoughts
Six of Crows - Leigh Bardugo

I didn't get around to writing a review for Six of Crows it seems, I do recall this book being amazing. Leigh has done an incredible job with the characters, making each voice unique and their own, impressive when there are like POVs. The world building was also imaginative, fascinating and easy to keep track of. I'm highly looking forward to book 2!

 

Couldn't recall how many stars I wanted to rate this book, so I'm going with 4.5 just to be safe.
