Monday Children’s Book Reviews for May 7, 2012

Frog and Fly: Six Slurpy Stories by Jeff Mack

“Six slurpy stories, two comical combatants, and one laugh-out-loud picture book

“Frog and Fly are constant companions. There is only one problem . . . Frog thinks Fly is delicious! This leads to a never-ending battle of wits with laugh-out- loud consequences. Told in six short comic-strip-style chapters, Frog and Fly will delight kids and leave them begging for yet another slurpy story.”                [JPB MACK]

Biscuit Plays Ball by Alyssa Satin Capucilli

“Excitedly attending a fun-filled baseball game but disappointed that he cannot join the players, an exuberant Biscuit thinks of his own way to participate.” By the creators of Biscuit.                                        [JE CAPUCILLI]

Wolf Storm by Dee Garretson

“This is Stefan’s big break. He’s on location in the mountains far from home for his first movie role, filming a blockbuster sci-fi adventure. The props, the spaceships, and the trained wolves on set should add up to a dream job, but acting turns out to be much tougher than he ever imagined, and he feels like his inner loser is all that’s showing through. From the way his famously stuck-up co-star, Raine, treats him, he’s pretty sure she thinks so too. And worst of all, no one will believe his claim that there are wild wolves haunting the forest around the set.

“When a blizzard strikes, isolating the young co-stars and bringing hungry feral wolves into the open, Stefan must take on his biggest role yet – working together with his co-stars to survive. With no second takes, they only have one chance to get it right.”                                  [J GARRETSON]
