A New Lemony Snicket Series



After writing a book under the pseudonym Daniel Handler, Lemony Snicket returns to writing under his proper name. He of course is still discouraging people from reading the terrible and soul-destroying books. The new series “All The Wrong Questions” will be a supposedly highly biographical account of Snicket’s childhood and will be published by Little Brown Books for Young Readers. The first book in this series Who Could that Be At This Hour will be released in October.
Little Brown plans on printing around a million copies and Snicket is left puzzling in an email “Why anyone would be interested.”

The Giant Squid for the Kids



So I realize now that I haven’t reviewed any books for the little ones, and today I’m going to rectify that with the picture book I’m the Biggest Thing In the Ocean by Kevin Sherry. This book is absolutely adorable. The basic tale is of a giant squid that is thrilled beyond belief that there is nothing bigger than him in the ocean, he proceeds to swim about pointing out how he is bigger than various sea animals providing a child with a basic introduction to the different animals that occupy the ocean.
That is until a giant whale came us and swallows him and the rest of the creatures up. They survive, and the squid is slightly disheartened up until he realizes that he is the biggest thing in the whale!
I’m also a great fan of the art work, which is in a very cool style that I don’t think I’ve seen before.
This is a perfect book for any child that loves the sea or animals.

The artist’s website also has some fantastic clothing designs, and I proudly sport a good number of his shirts.
