It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 8/13/12
Jen and Kellee host a weekly meme called "What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA." It encourages you to share what you read during the previous week and to plan what you're going to read/review during the current week. Thank you, Kelly and Jen, for hosting this fun meme.
The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee. By Tom Angleberger. Amulet Books, 2012. Interest level: grades 4-7.
I'm going to write a paragraph that would make Murky proud.
Folks, The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee is stooky. It's bolt. It's plastic dinosaurs and total rockets. Kids will shout, "Mr. Schu, you're right, it is amazing, wonderful, off the hook, fabulous, astonishing, terrific, extraordinary, jaw-dropping, and AWESOME."
I re-read the ten picture books featured in this video. You can skip to 3:40
