Hi all and a happy Halloween from your favorite Library Ninja, Bill!!!! I love Halloween because it let's you pretend to be anybody or anything you want. Such as:
OR The Scariest of All........
Hey how about a little Halloween music??? Check it out:
"This is Halloween" from "The Nightmare Before Christmas."
Okay, here we go:
Amulet: The Cloud Searchers by Kazu Kibuishi - This is the third book in the Amulet Graphic Novel Series (The Stonekeeper Book 1 and The Stonekeeper's Curse Book 2). It continues the adventures of the human children Emily and Nathen, Miskit and the rest of the robotic crew, Lean Redbeard a swashbuckling fox, along with new allies in Captain Enzo (a cat) of The Luna Moth (a flying airship) and his brother Rico. Emily and her allies convince Captain Enzo to fly them to the mythical city in the sky "Cielis" to meet it's Guardian Council in hope to save the Kingdom of Alledia. An unexpected addition to their team is The Evil Elf King's son Prince Trellis. He appears to be on their side, but is he really? If that were not enough they are also being pursued by a bounty hunter hired by The Elf King, Master Gabilan and his frighting flying beast mount. Do they find the floating city in the clouds? Does everyone make the journey through intact? Are there more twist and turns in the storyline? I guess you will have to pick this great GN up and read it to find out. This is a story not to be missed.
Alligator VS. Crocodile by Isabel Thomas - This is a great book that has wonderful pictures of alligators and crocodiles in their natural environments along with being packed with information about these lean mean killing machines (err reptiles that is). The book is divided up into rounds like a boxing match. Before the fight you have the obligatory "Meet the Reptiles" which gives some basic information on both. The rounds are divided up comparing facts about the two predators. The Rounds go something like this:
Round 1 - Size and Strength
Round 2 - Speed and Endurance
Round 3 - Surprise Attack
Round 4 - Teeth and Jaws
Round 5 - Hunting and Fishing Skills
Finally we get to find out theoretically if these two creature went head to head who would win the fight. Lastly we are given some important information concerning the survival of these animals from their worst enemy; man.
Tons of great information teamed with great photographs make this book a WINNER!!!!!!!!!
Happy Halloween all you ghouls, ghost, guys and gals,
