A book List

So I am actually on time for something, Wow! Here it is my new book list for you all. Hope you enjoy.
The Shivers in the Fridge by Fran Manushkin. The Shiver Family lives in the cold and dark. Always on the watch for the monsters and earthquake. Until one day they decided to try for a better life. See what happens and if they find that life. There is a nice little twist to it..
Grandpa's Teeth by Rod Clement. Possible one of the greatest mysteries for a child, LOL. No really grandpa's teeth go missing. Someone stole them. The whole town goes into a panic over it. You have to read and find out who stole them, very cute.
The Dream Shop by Katherine Kenah. "Once upon a while, on an island above the ice and below the stars, there is a small shop made of wood....where one can purchase dreams." This is a story that Sam picked. He liked the fact that you can make dreams the way you want. Not so scary that way.
10-Step guide to living with your MONSTER by Laura Numeroff. Ok first who does not love a Laura Numeroff book. This one is no exception. Very cute and well written rules on how to deal with your pet monster (or in Sam's case little brothers).
Henry & the Buccaneer Bunnies by Carolyn Crimi. Ok if you have a little one that likes more adventure than books, you might just want to check out this book. It is about a feared set of pirates (bunnies so they are not scary). The captian feels bad that his son does not want to learn how to be a pirate. All he wants to do is read books. The Captian does change his mind when they get shipwrecked and Henry shows all of the amazing things he learned from the books.
