Summer Reading no. 13: Stella by McCall Hoyle. I always worry about dogs on the covers of children’s books. Thankfully, Stella survives the story!
Summer Reading no. 10: Mystery on Magnolia Circle by Kate Klise and illustrated by Celia Krampien. A younger reader version of Rear Window, minus the murder. (There’s a burglary and a missing dog.)
No 11. The Great Pet Heist by Emily Ecton - This one will appeal to fans of the Secret Life of Pets, and heists. Stars three rats, a cat, a long haired dachshund and a myna bird.
No. 6: Following Baxter by Barbara Kerley. Another SSYRA title, another plot I didn’t expect. I enjoyed the wacky scientist neighbor with the homemade teleporter.
No. 5: 101 Dalmatians by Dodie Smith. I wanted to read it because my niece loves the new 101 Dalmatian Street cartoon and I wanted to see if it was something she’d like, but once I found out about the bonkers sequel, I had to read it. (Starlight Barking. Apparently, there are aliens!)
Matt Faction, David Aja and Annie Wu’s run on Hawkeye isn’t just my favorite comic, it’s one of my favorite books. What makes Clint Barton such an endearing, entertaining hero is the fact that he’s very extremely human. He gets hurt. He makes lots and lots of mistakes. He tries very hard to do good, even though he’d never admit it out loud. He just wants a cup of coffee. He loves his one eyed Pizza dog.
I'm an aspiring author / illustrator.
