Harry is after a sadistic serial killer Snowman
The Snowman: A Harry Hole thriller (Oslo Sequence 5) by Nesbo. Jo ( 2010 ) Paperback - Nesbo. Jo

Married women with children were found to have disappeared without a trace. No body. Nothing.

 

Harry found that these women were dead and someone has targeted them. 

 

But why?

 

The reason is strange. The story is getting very close to home.

 

The details in the story, with Harry refused to enlarge the startup team of four for investigation, to his surprise and strange betrayal by someone close to the investigation. There is so much twist in the story, yet it is seemingly possible. 

 

Like this a lot. 

 

On the love side. He split with Rakel and know they are having an affair while Rakel is dating someone else.

 

Why can't they just accept that they are just safer if they stay together.  

 

5 stars.

Harry Hole is on the hunt again from Hong Kong to Congo
The Leopard: A Harry Hole thriller (Oslo Sequence 6) - Jo Nesbø,Don Bartlett

The part about him living in Hong Kong is really good and his mentioned of Cantonese logic is at least correct. 

 

The story followed that Harry was drunk and escaped to Hong Kong. As a serial killer has killed women in a such a way that couldn't be explained by the police, they need Harry Hole to come back and find the killer for them.

 

Police politics involved and a jerk tried to take the credit for Harry's hard work.

 

The story is good and it keep the readers guessing who is the killer. 

 

Jo Nesbo is a good story teller. And he is not afraid to be graphic and put the main character in real danger. It is fictional danger, but it is real enough for the readers to care what would happen to Harry and hoe he would get out of danger he was in.

If You Give A Mouse A Cookie
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie - Laura Joffe Numeroff,Felicia Bond

This book is about giving a mouse a cookie and this event leading to him wanting more and more each time. I would use this in my classroom by demonstrating order of events and how we are always wanting more when we get something. I would create more sequences of events and separate the class into groups and give them a list of cause and effect situations. They will be assigned to placing the cause to the effect and then acting out their favorite one. When I first saw the book, I was thinking the book could be on a second to third grade level because of the sequence of events. The Lexile Level is AD660L.

There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Bat
[(There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat! )] [Author: Lucille Colandro] [Aug-2005] - Lucille Colandro

This book is a halloween twist on the story, There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly. I believe that any grade would enjoy this book. The Lexile level of this book is 400L. For younger grades, you could do a lesson on sequence of events. The children could be given an item that the old lady ate and have to line up in the correct order. You could even collaborate with the music teacher to make the story into a play. Each child could be given a certain role and get to make a costume. For older grades, you could do a health and writing lesson. Each child could make the old lady's stomach out of clear wrap and paper bags. They could place the items she ate in the bag and then items that would be healthier. The students could write about healthy alternatives for the old lady.
