what are you reading today? Day 11

 Today I read several children books at the library. Loved all of them! Here are 2:

Joo reads Sam, Bangs & Moonshine by Evaline Ness

Sam, Bangs & Moonshine is about a girl who tells lies like her life depends on it. And as you can see from the cover, there is a cat in the story. Not all stories with cats in them are good, but this one is.
What makes this an even better story is that there is a boy who BELIEVES everything the girl says.  Yep. Sweet...? Or... sad? You decide.  Anyway, so one day something happens, and the girl never lies again....well, not the bad sort of lies! This is a great book, with absolutely wonderful illustrations from the great Evaline Ness. 

Joo reads The Snow Maze by Jan Mark

A boy finds a strange-looking key which unlocks a gate that makes him see what others can't. Because they can't see what he sees, everyone laughs at him, except one friend. I made this drawing based on the book cover, and added myself standing next to the boy. Yep, I really got into the story. :--) A wonderful book. Nice illustrations too.
