Book Fair, Secret Lair, New Hair!

I got my hair done yesterday so here is a picture of me in my secret lair behind the book fair with my new hair breathing air and with another picture to share.  Ha!

The great thing about the book fair, in addition to raising money for the PTA, is that it allows me to get new books for the library. I get to select books from the fair to add to my collection. Here is a picture of two boxes of books that I have selected for our library. So you have that to look forward to when the library opens again.

If you haven't yet come down to the book fair, you have until Friday after school to shop for some terrific books. I picked up School of Fear by Gitty Daneshvari yesterday and was immediately hooked after reading the first chapter.  I must finish this book!  

There are lots of other great titles as well, such as The Adventures of Ook and Gluk: Kung-fu Cavemen From the Future, a new George and Harold book from Dav Pilkey; The Search for Wondla by Tony DiTerlizzi of The Spiderwick Chronicles fame; Thelonius Monster's Sky High Fly Pie, Duck, Pete & Pickles, and a Visitor for Bear, all CYRM nominees for 2010-11; and in graphic novels you can find Ghostopolis and Rapunzel's Revenge, both highly acclaimed graphic novels for young people. Or you could come and buy the last copy of The Graveyard Book because you've been putting off reading this book for way too long!

Books make great gifts and the Book Fair directly benefits the library, it's a win-win scenario.  Come on down and pay us a visit and buy some books!
