Pete The Cat: I Love My White Shoes - Eric Litwin,James Dean

An awesome collection! Student's love Pete the Cat!!  This is a great book to teach kids colors.  The rhythm of the story keeps the student engaged while teaching students not to get upset with the little things. Very much "look at the bright side" story.  The predictable patter of the book helps students read along.   My son loves this book! He sings it all the time.

Splat the Cat: Fishy Tales - Rob Scotton

The Splat the Cat collection is wonderful! Students will fall in love with the character and will stay engaged.  This book could be read before a field trip to discuss appropriate field trip behaviors or even a discussion about needing to impress others.  Overall, this book is perfect for kindergarten and even first grade.  The words a simple and the story is predictable.

The Epigram Books Collection of Best New Singaporean Short Stories: Volume One
The Epigram Books Collection of Best New Singaporean Short Stories: Volume One - Jason Erik Lundberg,Ann Ang,Yu-Mei Balasingamchow,Felix Cheong,Dave Chua,Justin Ker,Koh Choon Hwee,Karen Kwek,Wei Fen Lee,Amanda Lee Koe,Vinita Ramani Mohan,Eleanor Neo,Ng Yi-Sheng,O. Thiam Chin,Alvin Pang,Phan Ming Yen,Alfian Sa'at,Verena Tay,Jeremy Tian It is unfortunate when the editor for a major book design/publishing company compiles an anthology of short stories - he is forced to choose the usual suspects from the tiny pool (4-5) book publishing companies of which he also has a hand in, as an editor/writer AND it doesn't help either that three of his short stories are included in this collection, on the insistence of his publisher boss (he has explained that in the preface to the collection with disclaimers)

Epigram is obviously in for the long haul since this collection has been labelled as "Epigram Books Collection" (staking name rights/claims) and numbering this collection as "Volume One"

But there seems to be a problem with the Opening titles - "Best New" - Can the best be new and the new be the best? That is the problem with trying to form a canon of literary work from new works. They haven't stood the test of time and in all honesty the collection in this "Best New" collection is marginally good at best.

There are common threads running through the backgrounds of most of the writers chosen for this collection in that most of them are anointed by the University of Iowa Writing Workshop. Which oddly enough, gives a sameness to all their short stories.

Thin Ice - an Xcite Books collection of erotic short stories
Thin Ice - an Xcite Books collection of erotic short stories - Brighton Walsh;Elizabeth Coldwell;Lynn Lake;Zombie Ferguson;Maria Lloyd i have to say the cover and the title of this bad boy are crazy misleading. i thought this was going to be a collection of shorts about women banging hockey players. NOPE. well the first story was. anywhoodle.i gave:Thin Ice by Brighton Walsh 5 stars for a well done, complete short with a realistic build up and hot sexy times... with a hockey player.Stand 69 by Elizabeth Coldwell 2 stars for kinda of bizarre sex in a bizarre public place with a bizarre build up. Client Visit by Lynn Lake 2 stars for unrealistic f/f sex that jumped the shark just to get two women humping and language that suggested it was an story written specifically for the male fantasy of lesbian sex. also my least favorite kind of office sex. Picture of Lily by Zombie Ferguson for publishing under Zombie Ferguson. jk, the story was really hot. included office sex that was more believable and not sexual harassy.The Closet by Maria Lloyd 5 stars for super hot BDSM action with a Dom who was rich, but not crazy. thank god.i would definitely read more by Brighton Walsh, Zombie Ferguson and Maria Lloyd.
