The Cow Loves Cookies written by Karma Wilson and illustrated by Marcellus Hall
This book was very popular with Sweetie. Although there are a ton of picture books set in an idyllic farmyard, this one sets itself apart with its deceptively simple text, captivating illustrations and an ending that will make kids smile.
Follow the Line through the house by Laura Ljungkvist
A part of the Follow the Line series, this is the first one we’ve read–and now we’re anxious to check out the others. A single line begins on the first page and runs continuously throughout the illustrations. What a great concept! All three of my girls really enjoyed this book.
The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger
This would have been the best book for me when I was fourteen (although in general I think it is written for a bit younger than that) because I was obsessed with Star Wars and origami. The central question of the novel: does Origami Yoda have real power or is he a fraud created by a middle school misfit? A very quirky and funny read.
Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
Great YA dystopian novel with interesting themes and great plot twists. Incarceron is a prison that is alive and seemingly impossible to escape. The second book in the series, Sapphique, is already out and I put a hold in it at my library. I hope I get it soon!
