Monday Children’s Book Reviews for October 27, 2014

A Library Book For Bear by Bonny Becker

“Bear is quite sure that he already has all the books he will ever need and can see no reason to go to the Library for more. Yet his friend Mouse, small and gray and bright-eyed, thinks otherwise. When Bear reluctantly agrees to go with Mouse to the big Library, neither rocket ships nor wooden canoes are enough for Bear’s picky tastes. Will Mouse ever find the perfect book for Bear?”                                    [JPB BECKER]

Frostborn by Lou Anders

“Destined to take over his family farm in Norrøngard, Karn would rather play the board game Thrones and Bones, until half-human, half frost giantess Thianna appears and they set out on an adventure, chased by a dragon, undead warriors, an evil uncle, and more.” The first book in a planned series.                    [J ANDERS]

 Dinosaur! Dinosaurs and Other Amazing Prehistoric Creatures As You’ve Never Seen Them Before by John Woodward

“The lost world of velociraptor, stegosaurus, allosaurus, and other prehistoric monsters come to life as never seen before in Dinosaur!

“Packed with photorealistic computer generated images, detailed cross-sections and cutaways revealing the inner workings of dinosaurs, simple annotations, and clear concise definitions explaining each dinosaur and prehistoric beast at a glance — Dinosaur! revives the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous Eras and brings young readers into the action.”       [J567.9 WOODWARD]
