Monday Children’s Book Reviews for February 6, 2012

Limelight Larry by Leigh Hodgkinson

“A vain peacock named Limelight Larry is excited to be in a book that is just about him, but before long, several of his animal friends begin poking their heads in to see what is going on as Limelight Larry tries to get them to go away. But after he chases everyone out, he finds it isn’t any fun showing off for no one but himself.”                               [JPB HODGKINSON,L]

Things That Go Bump in the Night by Patrick Carman

“Read, watch, and listen to each chilling story in 15 minutes or less!

“3:15 means several things. It’s a time when things go bump in the night. A place where spooky stories find a home. A feeling . . . that chill running down your spine.

“It means 10 terrifying tales that you’ll experience in 3 parts: A frightful audio introduction. Several spooky pages of text. And a creepy video conclusion you can watch online. All in 15 minutes or less.

“Step into the world of 3:15 and you’ll meet Cody Miller, whose greed leads to a grave mistake; Emma Franklin, who learns that not all childhood fears are foolish; Dylan Smith, who should know better than to show off his snowboarding skills on a haunted mountain; and more.

“Don’t get too attached to any of them.”

Features “Night on the Dredge,” a new story set in the world of Skeleton Creek!            [J CARMAN]

Iceberg Right Ahead! The Tragedy of the Titanic by Stephanie Sammartino McPherson

“Describes the ill-fated maiden voyage of the Titanic, a luxury liner claimed to be “unsinkable” that was destroyed after colliding with an iceberg, killing over one thousand passengers onboard.


“Collects personal accounts by survivors, family members, rescuers and other sources to reveal the far-reaching effects of the Titanic tragedy, providing additional coverage of how the event changed international safety regulations and prompted the formation of the U.S. Coast Guard.”                    [J910.91634 MCPHERSON]
