Reading progress update: I've read 62 out of 96 pages.
The Metamorphosis and Other Stories (Dover Thrift Editions) - Stanley Appelbaum

It's a wonderfully weird book. So far I've read "The Judgment" and even after the third reading of this story I'm still not sure I've made sense of it; "The Metamorphosis" the reason I'm reading this for CREEPY CRAWLIES" and a brilliant and evocative tale, and I'm most of the way through "The Penal Colony", reading about a strange machine that tortures an accused prisoner to death through language.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar
The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a great informative and entertaining book for young readers. The illustrations and the holes in the pages will keep readers interested. Science can be easily incorporated with this book because metamorphosis is described from the egg stage to the caterpillar finally becoming a beautiful butterfly. Students can also watch an animated film of the book and see the metamorphosis in depth and the book come to life! https://youtu.be/75NQK-Sm1YY

Teaching responsibility
One Step at a Time - Aharon, Sara Y.,Bryn Pennetti

The following book was kindly sent to me by the author, Sara Y. Aharon, who requested a review. This book will be published on September 1, 2018 and you can check out the author's website or Amazon for more information on purchasing the book.

 

One Step at a Time by Sara Y. Aharon is a picture book which teaches children the value of perseverance and personal growth. Emma is a little girl who loves butterflies so it's lucky that her classroom has one for a pet. However, Emma gets so excited about playing with Belle the Butterfly that she accidentally sets her free. What should she do? Can she ever face her teacher and classmates again?  One Step at a Time demonstrates the advantages of accepting responsibility even when it's uncomfortable (especially then) and how being brave doesn't necessarily mean that you are totally confident that things will go your way. It's a gentle way to visually display the significance of doing the right thing even when you may be afraid. As this is self-published, I think there are a few things that could be done to set it apart and give it a chance against some of its mainstream contemporaries. Adding questions to test comprehension at the back of the book (nothing too daunting) would give the message that this would be a great teaching supplement. Perhaps including a link back to the author's website where additional information about metamorphosis and free downloadable butterfly coloring sheets are available would sweeten the pot even further. [A/N: I give these suggestions based on my own experience reading children's books and recommending them to the parents and teachers in my community. These are definitely hot ticket additions to any book and would make a great selling point. ;-)] It's a cute little story that has a good message. 7/10

Perfect Blue novels - English translations coming out in 2018
Perfect Blue: Complete Metamorphosis - Yoshikazu Takeuchi
Perfect Blue: Awaken from a Dream - Yoshikazu Takeuchi

This is old news, but I just came across it while looking over my library's collection of anime DVDs.

 

Seven Seas Presents the Two Original PERFECT BLUE Novels by Yoshikazu Takeuchi

 

I hadn't realized that Satoshi Kon's movie Perfect Blue was originally based on a novel (or both novels?). Considering that it's my least favorite of Kon's movies, mostly because of how dark it is, I might not like the books much. However, I still plan on giving them a shot when they're released.

The Metamorphosis
The Metamorphosis - Franz Kafka,Stanley Corngold This short story is beyond weird. I mean it super is, but it really kept my attention. It's like nothing I remember reading before. I won't soon forget it.
