Excellent, insider information! Thank you.

I must point out a glaring omission of the previously discussed pajama book from your list. :-)

darn, how did that happen?

Were THIS IS ALL or OCTAVIAN NOTHING reviewed in Sep/Oct? I'll be interested to see what you do with those.

Roger Sutton said...

Both. And with very positive reviews, albeit some caveats re This Is All.

How about tyler and his solve-a-matic machine, by Jennifer Bouani? I read it to my class and they all loved it. We are introducing it as mandatory reading in our school. It's a fun fantasy story that teaches kids how o be entrepreneurs and business leaders, it is a story of attaining dreams and success.
