On Thursday, May 28th, I was lucky enough to be released from my regular duties as a middle school librarian so I could hop over to the City and spend a day at Book Expo America. I walked up and down the Convention Floor for five hours without a break. I only felt it when […]

Review: The Lunch Witch


The title of this latest original publication by Papercutz might make you think of the Lunch Lady graphic novels, but mark my words: The Lunch Witch bears very little resemblance, though it will be a hit with the kids.

Review: Rio: Snakes Alive


When the Scholastic Book Orders came with free Rio2 bookmarks just as my review copy of Papercutz’s Rio arrived in my mailbox, I knew that there was a big movie release on the horizon. Generally, I’m not a fan of movie-tie ins, so I was a bit of a skeptic when I picked this up. […]

Review: Dinosaurs, vol. 2


True story: We were planning a trip the zoo and my three-year-old daughter and I were having a conversation about what animals we might see there. We mentioned sea lions, tigers, birds, and turtles. But then my daughter asked, “Will we see dinosaurs?” “No,” I answered,  “Dinosaurs aren’t found in zoos.  Maybe we can see […]
