I had planned to upload this week's podcasts during my trip but things just didn't go as planned. But, they are up now.
Spinelli, Jerry. LOVE, STARGIRL
Stargirl has left Arizona and is trying to find herself again in Pennsylvania. But she can't stop thinking about Leo. And how she got lost in Arizona. She is back to being Stargirl. She's left Susan behind. She's back to home schooling. She won't take a chance on the school. And she is trying hard to find joy again. If you know Stargirl, you know that she has found some unusual friends but Leo still haunts her thoughts, Read her letter to him as she tells him about her adjustment and coming to terms with her feelings.
Trumbauer, Lisa. A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO DRAGONS
The cover clearly states "Warning: Do not open this book! It's filled with everything I've learned about dragons in my apprenticeship with the great wizard, Maddoc. And it's the private property of my Aunt Moonbeam. Everyone else: KEEP OUT!"
OK, what would you do if you had this book? Probably the same thing I did. I opened it up and read it. Well, I just couldn't help myself. I wanted to know all about dragons. And boy did I learn a lot. I mean, did you know that Black Dragons prefer to hide and then ambush their victims? And that Copper Dragons would rather tell a joke than fight? And that White Dragons aren't particularly smart creatures? Well, it's all in this book. Pick it up and read it -- if you dare.
Weaver, Tess. CAT JUMPED IN!
Oh no! Someone left the window open. And the cat jumped in, in, in! And everywhere the cat goes, he seems to get into something and makes a mess! What will happen when the home owner comes home? Will cat be put out, out, out?
Wheeler, Lisa. WHERE, OH WHERE, IS SANTA CLAUS?
Where, oh where, is Santa? He is missing! What will Christmas be without him? The reindeer are very worried and go out looking for him. And the arctic hares, the seals, the arctic fox and even the polar bears are looking as well. Will they find him? Wait. What's that? Boot tracks!! Will they lead to Santa?
