It is Monday... January 20

This graphic novel tells the stories of three brave dogs (and their soldiers) during three different wars - WWI, WWII and the Vietnam War. 

Visit author Sheila Keenan's Blog for a peek inside the book.

The 5sters and I read this one together. We have enjoyed many of the books in this Princess Tales series of short fairy tales, and we loved twist of Cinderella being a boy named Cinderellis.

More about this series on Gail Carson Levine's Website

The Bud liked the audio book of the Doll People so much, we continued the adventure with the audio book of The Meanest Doll in the World this week.

There is an Auntie Sara in our lives, just like in the books, and the 5sters get a particular pleasure out of saying her name like the doll character Tiffany does in the audio version… much to my sister's dismay.

I have been busy re-reading this stack. 
I am looking forward to discussing these titles with folks at ALA Midwinter!
