Scaredy Squirrel, Donna Kouri, and I spent a lot of time together during the second annual Reading Road Trip. Scaredy Squirrel hid under my seat, begged to stay in the car, and constantly sanitized his hands. Even though he drove me crazy, I love promoting his books. You rarely find his books on the shelf, and he always makes my students smile. I'm looking forward to playing this just-released book trailer for all my classes.
Kate Messner's Marty McGuire was the first Sharp-Schu Book Club selection. She recently released the cover for Marty McGuire Has Too Many Pets!
Doesn't Brian Floca's cover illustration make you want to read it right NOW? It will be released on January 28, 2014.
