Have you ever felt like there’s more to Rumpelstiltskin than meets the eye? Do you feel like the story you’ve heard about him seems rather one sided? Then Rump by Liesl Shurtliff is just the book for you. This is a delightful tale that tells how things really happened.
Just this past weekend, one of you asked me if we had any Geronimo Stilton books in the library. We didn’t at the time…BUT… now we do! In today and on our shelves is The Amazing Voyage: The Third Adventure in the Kingdom of Fantasy. Come quick before it flies off the shelf!
Yay! I love getting my hands on newly arrived books. Here are a few that came to Salmon Arm this week:
The Diamond of Darkhold (the fourth Book of Ember) by Jeanne DuPrau-This is such a fun series!
Box of Shocks by Chris McMahen-a story about a thrill seekig boy who loves outrageous and daring deeds.
The Mystery of the Cyber Bully by Marty Chan- Marty, Remi and Trina must follow the electronic trail in order to find the cyber bully who is tormenting their classmate.
This book is actually 2 years old but we just got it in SA and I think it looks like a good read. Write Before Your Eyes by Lisa Williams Kline looks like an awesome book for budding writers and dreamers.
each entry she makes in the journal comes true, though sometimes in an unexpected way. Suddenly the girl nobody notices has power
October is when the leaves fall off the trees and the Halloween decorations go up…my favourite time of year for spooky stories. Whether you like cute Halloween picture books or creepy monster chapter books the ORL has a book for you!
Have you read any of the Ghost Detectors books? We just got Tell No One (book 3) at Salmon Arm Branch. Ghost stories for the modern kid, with spooks spotted on digital pictures!
If you or someone you know is either Amish or part of a community that prefers traditional dress and old-fashioned values the library has purchased some new books that will interest you. Wanda E. Brunstetter’s two novels Jumping to Conclusions and Out of Control feature eleven-year-old Rachel Yoder who lives in an Amish community.
If you want to read about a historic event or figure in a fun way you should check out the Magic Tree House series. The library has just received more books from the series and the ones at the Salmon Arm Branch are really great.
I think its awesome for you to read about historical events in books like this, especially if you are learning about the true history in school or for fun. Try getting a nonfiction (book with facts) on the same topic as the novel.
Jack and Annie learn about Shakespeare by meeting him and being a part of their play!
