It’s Monday! What are You Reading from Picture Books to YA?


Recent Reads

The Dumbest Idea Ever – Graphic novel memoir on how Jimmy Gownley (Amelia Rules) got his start in comics. I think it could make a great pair for Smile. I picked this title up when setting up my school’s spring book fair.

Magic Under Glass – YA fantasy where a fair prince is imprisoned inside a piano-playing automaton and the musician girl who tries to help him.

The Tinker King – YA steampunk fantasy sequel to The Unnaturalists. It left me wondering if there will be a third book.

Loki’s Wolves – Middle grade fantasy adventure using Norse mythology. The sequel comes out this week and I already have a student asking for it. I think it would appeal to fans of The Kane Chronicles.

Recent Reread:

Seabiscuit – Well researched narrative nonfiction account of the 1930s horse racing world. Reread prompted by the Kentucky Derby.

Looking Ahead:

Odette’s Secrets – World War II historical Fiction written in verse

The Hero’s Guide to Being an Outlaw – Third book in the humorous Hero’s Guide series
