Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 13:42:52 +0000

I REALLY enjoyed Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus. While it’s listed as middle grade (8-12), it’s the upper end of that age range and one that readers of ALL ages should read (good life insights for young and old). It is beautifully written and has an extremely strong female character. She has ...

Stores donate books to causes or host fundraisers throughout the year, but some stores have special holiday season drives, wish lists, or angel trees for the holidays. Studies show that for every $100 you spend at one of our local businesses, $52 will stay in the ...

Game of Crowns: Elizabeth, Camilla, Kate, and the Throne by Christopher Andersen

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 13:12:03 +0000

This is a great guilty pleasure filled with information about the monarchy of Great Britain. The author compares and contrasts the three main women of royalty: the cold Queen Elizabeth, the beloved Princess Kate, and the forever-despised Camilla. A great read for people who love the subject of the royal crown! –Caitlin, The Well-Read Moose, Coeur ...

Monster ABC, written, drawn, and self-published by the Northwest brother duo of Derek and Kyle Sullivan, has been one of our most popular board books, and for good reason—it’s a hoot, and gorgeous to boot! So we were delighted when a new shipment arrived with the brothers’ two more recent board books, Get Dressed, Sasquatch! (in which ...

Land on Fire: The New Reality of Fire in the West by Gary Ferguson

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 15:48:37 +0000

Given that Oregon was pretty much on fire for the summer of 2017, I thought this book a timely read. Although not a stranger to either forest or fire ecology, I found this to be a very thorough and well-written book on the subject. With photos and great clarity, Ferguson details the history of fire ...

This graphic novel has it all! Including a dynamic cast of characters that feature racially diverse, queer girls who can slay any dragon all by themselves! What makes this graphic novel so special is that it normalizes diversity without asterisks; it’s just great fun, wonderful graphics, and adventure. –Teasha, Elliott Bay Book Company, Seattle, WA Whether ...
