It is Monday… December 2

I have been reading a ton of picture books lately for Cybils fiction picture books round 1. It's probably more like a few hundred pounds, but what's a little clichéd hyperbole among friends?
I will be sharing about a few of those titles on other posts.

My other reading lately has mostly been with the 5sters.

The Bud and I just finished the audio of Sister's Grimm Book #1 while driving back and forth to school.
I'm sure this won't be the last listen of ours with this series.

We are about to finish Floors as a read-together book. The Bud got this one for his birthday, and we have been loving the creative fun of all the different themed rooms of the Whippet hotel.

After reading this during the summer, I knew this would be one to share with the Bud. We just started the audio version yesterday in the car while running some errands. So far I'm impressed... especially with how it deals with the opening comic sequence.


  1. ooo, Flora and Ulysses seems like it would be a really tough one to do on audio! Glad to hear it's good.

    1. I know! I was so curious how they would make it work.

  2. I really can't wait to read Flora and Ulysses. I've been reading so many great reviews about it. How'd you find The Sisters Grimm? Thanks for sharing all these.

    1. My local library system has a great selection of audio books. I feel very lucky - we are always able to have a good one going on the school commute.
