Hi, PBnauts! Three Truths for today:
1. Super Agent Scott is a total Rock Star!
2. At the current rate, it is unlikely there will be any Reese's Peanut Butter cups left here on the Space Station by the time Halloween gets here.
3. I'll have my picture up at the post office if I don't shuttle down and pay my overdue book fines at the Library before closing today. On my "owe" list:
The Emperor’s New Clothes by Hans Christian Andersen, translated by Naomi Lewis, illustrated by Angela Barrett (Candlewick Press, 1997). Well-told, gorgeously illustrated version (LOVE the dogs!) of the classic fairy tale.
Henry & The Crazed Chicken Pirates by Carolyn Crimi, illustrated by John Manders (Candlewick Press, 2009). The shipwrecked book-lovin’ bunny and his pirate family must fight off a flock of attacking pirate… chickens?
The Hungry Ghosts by Julius Lester, illustrated by Geraldo Valerio (but there’s an accent over the e, and my computer’s not cooperating, Dial Books for Young Readers, Penguin Young Readers Group, 2009). Interesting ghost story that answers the question, “What do ghosts eat?”
The Little Toy Shop by Frances Wolfe (Tundra Books, 2008). Satisfying, feel-good story of stuffed animal friends separated, then reunited, thanks to a very special toy store and its very special, jolly, bearded (sounds familiar...) owner.
