Monday Children’s Book Reviews for September 9, 2013

Journey by Aaron Becker

“A lonely girl draws a magic door on her bedroom wall and through it escapes into a world where wonder, adventure, and danger abound. Red marker in hand, she creates a boat, a balloon, and a flying carpet that carry her on a spectacular journey toward an uncertain destiny. When she is captured by a sinister emperor, only an act of tremendous courage and kindness can set her free. Can it also lead her home and to her heart’s desire?”             [JPB BECKER]

Dress-Up Mess-Up by Kelly DiPucchio

Get out your craft supplies, because the queen of DIY is back! It’s up to Chloe to create the perfect costume—and save the day—in this delightful follow-up to Crafty Chloe.

“The Parade of Books has arrived, and it’s Chloe’s chance to showcase her crafty costume talents. Leo wants Chloe to be the Frankenstein to his Dracula, and Chloe can’t wait to dress like a monster. But when Emma wants to wear Fairy Club costumes instead, Chloe is torn like a scrap of fabric. She doesn’t want to disappoint her friends—but how can she possibly please them both? Luckily, a little glitter and a lot of imagination just might give Chloe the answer!”       [JPB DiPUCCHIO]

Hunter Moran Hangs Out by Patricia Reilly Giff

“When Hunter and his twin brother Zack, of the chaotic Moran family, hear there’s going to be a kidnapping in their town, the two boys are on high alert. But this isn’t the only threat they’re facing– there’s a probable axe murderer in an abandoned house, definitely dead bodies in the pond, and their Mom is heading to the hospital to give birth to a new sibling, in this hilarious sequel to Hunter Moran Saves the Universe.”       [J GIFF]
