Book of the Month
This is the January 2013 installment of my Book of the Month Club. These books have been suggested by a fellow Librarian from Earth, her name is Kit Ward-Crixell and she is a librarian in New Braunfels, Texas, USA.
This month we're teaming up with Librarian Adelmo from Valencia in Pirate101 to bring you our January Book of the Month recommendation: Smells Like Pirates
, by Suzanne Selfors
If you've read the other books in the Smells Like Dog
series (or even if you haven't) you’re in for a treat with this book, which is the third in the series! Homer Pudding is 12 years old and wants to be a treasure hunter like his Uncle Drake. It's a good thing that his uncle has willed him Dog, a basset hound with mysterious talents. In this book, Homer and Dog have to find the treasure of the famous pirate Rumpold Smeller – while avoiding a killer tortoise, an evil museum director, a whale shark, and worse! A bit like the Series of Unfortunate Events books (but with happier endings!), these are great chapter books with lots of action.
Look for this book in your school or local library and enjoy reading, young Wizards!
