Sunday Surprise – School’s In Edition!

Sunday Surprise is a feature that showcases three random novels that have either caught our eye, have received for review or is just not getting enough attention. Hopefully we’re able to introduce you to a new fabulous read or even remind you of what you’re missing. So did we catch your eye?

School is back in session on Literary Escapism with the School’s In event going on, so I thought I would tie in the Sunday Surprise feature as well. For the September Sundays, we’ll be looking at a few random books for the littlest readers in our lives.

TSauer-Mostly MonsterlyMostly Monsterly by Tammi Sauer, illustrated by Scott Magoon

Bernadette has claws and fangs, a tail, two toes on each foot, and big, scary eyes. But that’s all on the outside. On the inside, she’s as sweet as can be. She loves picking flowers and cuddling with kittens and baking cupcakes. Now what kind of monster is that? Not a very good one. Maybe that’s why she’s failing all her classes in Monster School. Bernadette knows what she needs to do to get straight A’s. But can she really do it?

Little Goblins Ten by Pamela Jane

PJane-Little Goblins TenFrom one monster mommy teaching her little guy to be scary to ten goofy goblins ready for trick-or-treating, all kinds of beasties and ghoulies are out on this spooky night. Furry werewolves learn to howl, ghosts how to haunt, and dragons how to breathe fire. The monsters keep on adding up until they’re all ready to head off into the forest for some Halloween fun.

Expressive and catchy, this holiday-themed rhyme will be a read-aloud treat any time of the year!

Scaredycrow by Christopher Hernandez

CHernandez-ScaredycrowScaredycrow is a scarecrow who is scared of everything. He’s scared of the corn swaying in the breeze, the crows that fly by in the day, and the bats that swoop in at night. Imagine Scaredycrow’s surprise when a helpful little mouse tells him that the other animals are scared of him!

Filled with bright illustrations, this friendship story will encourage kids to talk about what makes them scared.

Included at the back of the book is a punch-out Scaredycrow character that kids can make into their own paper doll.

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
