      I am currently reading two books by Neil Gaiman: Coraline and The Graveyard Book. I am reading Coraline aloud to my 5th grade class and The Grave Yard Book to my 6th grade daughter at home. They are both very creepy but hard to put down!


Coraline - HardbackThe Graveyard Book - Hardcover


     I just finished Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins. It is the first book in the Underland Chronicles series.  Like Coraline, this story has a door to another world. Gregor and his baby sister fall through a vent in the laundry room to an underworld filled with nasty giant rats, cockroaches and humans that fly on bats. Gregor turns out to be a warrior in a prophecy and must defeat the rats to find his father. I can't wait to start the next story in the series...



Over the Easter break, I had a Kate Di Camillo fest and read The Tale of Despereaux, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane and The Tiger Rising. I think I liked the Edward Tulane story the best. It is about a spoiled toy that gets lost and discovers what is really important in life. Kate Di Camillo is my new favorite author! 



This summer I read two books by Robert Cormier, I Am the Cheese and The Chocolate Wars. They were both great stories but not appropriate for 5th graders. I also read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. All three of these great books would be perfect for 7th and 8th graders so read them when you are older! I really enjoyed rereading The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. This fantastic story follows the adventures of Milo through weird worlds that take words literally and numbers very seriously.
