Lately the kids have been reading a lot of books we own - and judging by our overflowing bookshelves - we own a lot of books. But Pippi had a specific book in mind, and Harry has been having trouble finding a story to stick his teeth into so we headed to the public library.
Here's what they got.
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
Peter and the Shadow Thieves by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
(notice a trend) and
The Nobodies by N.E. Bode
And for Harry (who apparently plans to do a lot of reading this month)
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
(not an abridged version, so we'll see how that goes)
Framed by Frank Cottrell Boyce
(he loved Millions)
London Calling by Edward Bloor
The Thieves of Ostia by Caroline Lawrence
and for something completely different
Under the Sea Origami by Duy Nguyen.
I know Pippi will read the books she got out. Harry - I definitely see him reading Framed and The Thieves of Ostia. We'll see what happens with 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
