Monday Children’s Book Reviews for September 19, 2011

No Sleep For the Sheep by Karen Beaumont and Jackie Urbanovic

“One tired sheep wants nothing more than a good night’s sleep. All is peaceful until—QUACK! Is that a duck at the barn door? And now a goat? A pig? A cow? A horse? Each new unexpected guest is bigger and louder than the last! How will the sheep ever get this barnyard crowd to quiet down before—COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO!”    [JPB BEAUMONT]

Flat Broke: The Theory, Practice and Destructive Properties of Greed by Gary Paulsen

“Kevin struggled to overcome his knack for lying in Liar, Liar, and now he’s back for another round of mayhem and misunderstandings in this financial comedy of errors.

“Fourteen-year-old Kevin is a hard worker, so when his income is cut off he begins a series of businesses, from poker games to selling snacks, earning money to take a girl to a dance, but his partners soon tire of his methods.”         [J PAULSEN]

A Gaggle of Goblins by Suzanne Harper

“Nine-year-old Poppy’s parents are paranormal investigators who have never actually found anything, but that may change when they move to Austin, Texas, and Poppy meets a goblin in the attic of their new house.”

The first book in the new series The Unseen World of Poppy Malone.         [J HARPER]

LEGO Harry Potter: Building the Magical World by Elizabeth Dowsett

“The magic of Harry Potter™ and the fun of the LEGO® world, now in one incredible book!

“Presents the Harry Potter line of Lego action figures and playsets, showing all of the playsets and detailing the number of pieces and minifigures associated with each, as well as when they were made and the movie that they relate to.”                [J688.725 DOWSETT]
