Well, that was...a thing 😂 Read this one out of sheer nostalgia. And it pretty much lived up to my expectations. I just wonder how much children actually enjoy this series.
This was my #readerschoice for the #BBRC #birthandbeyondreadingchallenge.

Before Long John Silver was long, he was Short John Silver. Here‘s one of his adventures. Fast-moving and full of silly puns and bad jokes. Loved the seven seas he had to sail across (the Sea of Stories and the Sea of Colours in particular were fab). Marks knocked off for the peg leg nicknames (I know it‘s a pirate book, but still - perfectly funny without them.)

An autobiography, covering the author‘s childhood, growing up between wartime Britain, & India, through independence & partition. I found this a really good read! She never talks down to her readers, whether explaining Indian politics, describing the shock of wartime England, or telling of the loss of her baby brother. I imagine it‘d be quite challenging for young readers, but fascinating nonetheless.
My kids love these books so I thought I give one a read for #scarathlon (go #teamslaughter) and #bbrc. 7 pts : directly related to Halloween AND team theme. #scaryscavengerhunt :pumpkin on cover and part of a series. #bbrc #middlegrade #readerschoice
How I‘ve missed Amelia Bedelia Stories! Amelia Bedelia helps out at a local school by being the head editor for a day. What could possibly go wrong?? It‘s funny! I‘d love to know Amelia - she may not have the best common sense, but she is also such a sweet person. #readerschoice #BBRC #ER
Bedtime reading with the cat, a giant teddy bear and my little reader. We started this one tonight and I hope it won't be too spooky for her. 👻🧛♂️👀

This is the summer reading book for Maya‘s middle school, and what an excellent choice! I‘m currently reading another book about the importance of resilience and grit, both of which William has in spades! A powerful story about never giving up and thinking creatively...even when people think you‘re crazy.
