I noticed that one of the books that had been highlighted on the preview video has become the high demand book of the Scholastic Book Fair. It is The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall by Mary Downing Hahn. I find this terribly interesting that this has become such a hot title all of a sudden. I've had this in my library for a year now and even listed it as a good scary story to share in my All Hallow's Read blog and it's been checked out all of twice. Two times. In the last year. The last time it was checked out was February. It is currently sold out at the Scholastic Book Fair and on reorder while stacks of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever remain on the tables. It's just so interesting how the power of suggestion works and what will capture the imagination of a population of children at any given time.
Anyway, come down and visit the book fair. Lots of wonderful titles for children of all ages and the proceeds benefit the library and the PTA.
