Picture this: you’re a member of a really rich family. You’re playing on the beach one day when a banker with a really bad cough turns up and tells you that your parents died in a fire that destroyed your whole mansion. You’re then put into the care of a really mean man who wants to inherit your fortune and makes you do all the chores. That’s exactly what happens to the Baudelaire childre*************** Sorry, my typewriter broke. As I was saying, that’s exactly what happened to the Baudelaire children. How do they cope? You’ll have to read this book (and the whole series) to find out. (One of the children loves inventing, another reads a lot, and another bites everything in sight.)

Knucklehead by Jon Scieszka
Submitted by Jenna, Age 11 from Maine
Rating: ★★★★★
I first heard of this book when my teacher said she recommended it. But it looked kind of dumb, so I never did bother to read it. That is, until my teacher read it to my classmates and I. I loved it so much, I read it again by myself!

Knucklehead is a hilarious memoir by Jon Sciezka, telling of his childhood memories of living with his five brothers, Jim, Tom, Gregg, Brian, and Jeff. This book is full of funny memories and tons of photos. I really enjoyed the part when they brought the cat in the car with them and something hilarious happened. So you’re probably wondering what happened, right? Well, sorry, but you’re going to have to read this funny memior to find out!

Babymouse Series by Jennifer Holm & Matthew Holm
Submitted by Elizabeth, Age almost 10 from New Hampshire
Rating: ★★★★★
Babymouse wears a pink heart dress and loves to eat pink cupcakes. She has a baby brother named Squeak and her best friend is Wilson Weasel. Babymouse gets pushed around by a mean cat named Felicia Furrypaws at school. Babymouse gets into all kinds of trouble and Wilson always helps her out. Unlike Babymouse he does everything right. My favorite book is Babymouse Burns Rubber. Have a squeaky day!

Book Trailer: A Series of Unfortunate Events

September 21st, 2009 by

This book trailer for A Series of Unfortunate Events was originally the Mystery Book Theater video for our Book to Movie theme. For more on A Series of Unfortunate Events, check out our “Lights, Camera, Action” podcast.

If you like cheerful stories, then you’d be better off not watching this video. Instead, go play with a kitten, hug a teddy bear, or head off to a flower-filled park for a romp (a word which here means, “an enjoyable afternoon far, far away from A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket”). I beg of you, do not watch this video.

(In addition, if you hear of the movie based on this series, please do your best to ignore it. This is for your own good.)
