Lemonade War #02: The Lemonade Crime by Jacqueline Davies
Lemonade War #02: The Lemonade Crime

Beth Elshoff, August 9, 2012

Usually sequels or seconds don't hold a candle to the original, but this is just as good as The Lemonade War. Where the Lemonade War left off, this picks up and takes us through the story like we were still reading the first book. The reader finds out more of the first story from other character's points of view and it shows that things are not always as they seem, esp. when seen through someone else's eyes. Good job Ms. Davies!!!

Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick

Beth Elshoff, January 28, 2012

WOW! I thought "The Invention of Hugo Cabret" was good -but I think Selznick's Wonderstruck is even better. Two lives - seemingly not connected and generations apart- come together in an unexpected way as the story is told by one character in words and beautiful illustrations tell the other characters story. Can't wait for this movie to come out!!!
