Weekend Reading

Library Day came a bit later this week - yesterday - and we have a fresh bash of books.  Here are a few of the kid and teen variety that I checked out for myself, knowing full well I won't have time to get to these with the kids.  (We don't have much farther to go on The Marvelous Land Of Oz, but we still have Winnie-the-Pooh and The BFG to finish, too.)

As for picture books, I have a gigantic stack waiting for us to finish, but these are the three I am most excited about!

I love Bob Shea.
Here's the book trailer.

Because both girls still love Pinkalicious Pinkerton.
Especially my youngest.

The Mighty Lalouche,
written by Matthew Olshan,
illustrated by Sophie Blackall.
Schwartz & Wade, 2013.
No book trailer for this one, but you can read this bit about it at Matthew Olshan's website,
or you can read this post entitled "The Making of The Mighty Lalouche" at Sophie Blackall's blog.
I hope everyone of my readers has a beautiful weekend, full of books and love and happiness.


  1. Sophie B rocks! Awesome book. I love your new pic. Hope things cooled down for you guys! We are home again.

    1. She's fantastic, isn't she? I'm super-excited for this one. Our library was slow to get it. I think I got it the second it arrived at our branch! Today was pretty hot, but under 100. It clouded over for a while, which helped. Hope you had a lovely trip! I wouldn't mind the 60s myself. ;o)

  2. YOU HAVE THE CARBONEL BOOKS!! Sorry for shouting but they are too awesome not too. I loved them as a kid and am so glad that they are back in print. My poor copies are paperback and in desperate need of a hardcover upgrade, they've literally been loved to death.
    Hope you have a terrific weekend!!!

    1. I'm excited to read them! I need to make a quick list of when everything is due back - I have some grown-up reads, too! - and go in order, I think. Hope your weekend is lovely, dahling! xoxo

  3. That top pile looks fantastic! I'm off to check and see if the Carbonel books are on book depository.

    1. Thank you, Lucy! I'm excited to make my way through these. Hope you find the books, and thank you for stopping by!


Comments are welcome! I'm a shy blog commenter, too, but I do love to read what people have to say. All I ask is, please be kind, to me and to each other.
