Masterpiece by Elise Broach?
Isn't that a cute picture? It's a mystery with a cockroach. Seriously, doesn't that make you want to run out and read it right now? Elise Broach also wrote Shakespeare's Secret:
Both are good mysteries. Both are well-written. They are really just fun. And they are slightly educational, one about Shakespeare, one about fine art.
And we also have a new animal book we love:
The Adventures of a South Pole Pig by Chris Kurtz
Great pictures. Good story. Funny. Worth a look!
