Ghost Hog

By Joey Weiser

book Source: bought at TCAF

Book Status: available

During free comic book day, we got a copy of Ghost Hog. At TCAF, we met Joey Weiser and got a full sized copy of Ghost Hog. The free comic book day is a little different than the book.

Ghost Hog is a graphic novel about a Hog is also a ghost. It is a girl named Truffles. Her nickname is Truf. The book is about her adventures as a ghost. She has to deal with something that is not so nice (The Hunter).

It was fun to read. I recommend this to kids who like ghosts and kids who like adventures.

The Last Surviving Dinosaur

By Steven Joseph

Illustrated by Andy Case

Book Source: e-copy Provided for review

Book Status: Available

Reviewer – Little Brother

This is the story about a girl who wants her dad to read to her but she has to read to her dad. The girl tells her dad a story about TyrantoCrankaTsuris. She is a cranky dinosaur like my sister in the mornings. (Oops hopes she doesn’t read her own blog). She is having a hard time making friends.

I read this all by myself. I recommend it to cranky kids. Second graders will like it. It was a fun book to read.

Double Astronaut Fun

The Astronaut who painted the moon by Dean Robbins

Illustrated by Sean Rubin

Book Source: sent for review by Scholastic

Book Status: available May 28, 2019

Reviewer – Little Brother

This is the amazingly awesome Astronaut loving little brother taking over the blog to share about two Astronaut books.

The First Men Who went to the Moon is about space and the first lunar landing. It talks about their prep, landing and how people reacted. There are Moon facts in the book too.

This book would be good for kids who want to learn about space and going to the Moon. This year is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing so now would be a good time to learn about it. Second grade classes could use this book! I read it by myself!

The Astronaut who painted the moon is about Alan Bean. He was the fourth man to land on the moon. He was also an artist. When he got back to Earth, he painted what he saw on the moon.

This would be a good book for art classes to talk about the moon landings. Mom says it is also a good way to show how you can use art to share an experience. I think this book would be good in classes.

The two books go together really well. I am adding them to my space shelf with the book by Buzz Aldrin! I like space and hope to go one day.

Last year I met an Astronaut when we were at Kennedy Space Center.

Two dogs in a trench coat go to school

By Julie Falatko

Illustrated by Colin Jack

Book Source: Owned

Book Status: available

This is a very funny book. It is very silly to think of two dogs going to school and the teacher not noticing. My teacher sees everything. I know because I get in trouble a lot for no reason.

The dogs go to school because they want to rescue their human. They find school to be fun so stay. The music teacher thinks they are good singers. One even talks like a person. I do not think my principal would two dogs in a trench coat coming to school. I also think she would know they are dogs.

Kids who are not enjoying school would like this book. It makes school seem fun. I also think kids starting to read chapter books would like this. I have been reading it by myself and sometimes with an adult.

Misunderstood Shark: Friends don’t eat friends

By Ame Dyckman

Pictures by Scott Magoon

Book Source: Sent by publisher for review

Book Status: Out on January 29, 2019

Lots of books show up for Bridget every week. Sometimes I steal them because I want mail. She is starting to let me read picture books first. This is one I got first!

This shark really wants friends. He doesn’t always make good choices in how he is a friend. That makes it hard for the people who would be his friend. In this book, he has to deal with eating a friend at the end of the last book. He is trying to make it up.

This is fun to read out loud. It is silly to think of a shark trying to make friends. It is silly to think about eating a friend. I hope someone reads this book out loud at school.

Bark in the Park

By Avery Corman

Pictures by Hyewon Yum

Book Source: sent by publisher for review

Book Status: out on March 26, 2019

I wish I could have a puppy. Dad says no. So I am reading about all the books I can find about them.

This is poems about different dogs. Some are long and some are short. They are fun to say out loud. You learn about the dog type.

This is a good book if you are trying to pick out a dog. The pictures are fun. I didn’t know there were so many types of dogs. Now I am confused over what kind of dog I want.

I like to read this at night. I can read it in pieces and that is easy.

Book Reviewer: Lil Brother

Bridget may not have finished Enginerds but I did. I love it! Last weekend I watched IRON GIANT and I don’t believe Jarrett when he says he has not seen it. The book and movie are very close to each other though one has farting robots and the other has a weapon robot.

You can find out what the book is about in a lot of reviews so I am going to talk about why I liked it.

1. It is a very fun book to read out loud

2. Farting, eating robots are funny

3. The robots build themselves which is cool (and like the Iron Giant does)

4. The boys are kind of naughty. They should not keep secrets! (like the boy in Iron Giant)

5. There is a second book coming out and I am excited about it. (Bridget is too so I will probably have to borrow her copy)

I recommend this book to people who like robots, who like the Iron Giant movie, people who likes to eat a lot, people who think farting is funny and people who just need to laugh. Little boys will definitely like this book. Grouchy teachers will not. And I wonder if I could get my principal to read it.

Hi Jarrett! I know you are reading this. I want to know what you think of Iron Giant….. πŸ›³πŸšπŸ€–πŸ€–πŸ₯°
