Monday Children’s Book Reviews for April 20, 2015

glamourpuss  Glamourpuss by Sarah Weeks and David Small

“Glamourpuss loves being the center of attention. So when an unwelcome guest (a dog, no less!) steals the spotlight with some tasteless bow-wowing and undignified tail-wagging, Glamourpuss worries that she’s going to fall out of fashion. Is there room for only one superstar in this mansion? When Glamourpuss makes her most majestic move to find out, the result is pure purrfection!”                    [JPB WEEKS]

henry and mudge and the starry nightHenry and Mudge and the Starry Night by Cynthia Rylant

“Looking forward to the family trip to Big Bear Lake, Henry imagines all the wonderful things that Mudge will investigate in the great outdoors and anticipates fun around the campfire, under the stars, and in a cozy tent.”  The seventeenth book of their adventures.    [JE RYLANT]

mark of the thiefMark of the Thief by Jennifer A. Nielsen

“When Nic, a slave in the mines outside of Rome, is forced to enter a sealed cavern containing the lost treasures of Julius Caesar, he finds much more than gold and gemstones: He discovers an ancient bulla, an amulet that belonged to the great Caesar and is filled with a magic once reserved for the Gods — magic some Romans would kill for.  Traitors and spies lurk at every turn, each more desperate than the next to use Nic’s newfound powers for their own dark purposes.”  By the best-selling author of the Ascendance Trilogy.       [J NIELSEN,J]
