Cozy by Jan Brett
After a little day-before-Halloween-snow here in Massachusetts, this was a fitting book to read. Cozy, a musk ox, gets separated from his herd and gives various animals shelter under his warm fur during the cold Alaska winter. This is a very sweet and cozy story in Jan Brett's signature style.
Cat Ninja by Matthew Cody and illustrated by Yehudi Mercado
Claude is the pet of an eleven-year-old boy, but when his city is threatened by villains, he becomes Cat Ninja. This is an action-packed, adventurous, and fun graphic novel.
Becoming Muhammad Ali by James Patterson and Kwame Alexander and illustrated by Dawud Anyabwile
Readers will learn about the childhood of Cassius Clay, who became the boxing great, Muhammad Ali. The book alternates between poetry and prose and gives insight into history and the life of a sports hero. Very interesting read.
