    This weird novel is one of those part-text, part-graphic novel books like The Invention of Hugo Cabret or Travels of Thelonious. It works well in this book; the story moved quickly, and I was intrigued by the action in the pictures. It worked as something of a mystery through the pictu...

    I got an advanced reading copy of this book through the Amazon Vine program. It looked like a fun book and had excellent reviews. After reading it though I have mixed feelings about it. There were some things I really didn't like and some things I really liked. When Hope's little si...

    This month I took it apon myself to reread a book I read when I was younger. I read "the memory bank," by Rob Schepperson. The story starts out as a young girl telling her story about the treatment of her parents. This would include living in the garage and not being fed. One day she t...

    It's hard to tell, in some ways, if this was a book better suited for a run at the Caldecott or Newbery Medal. Author Carolyn Coman has amassed a few Newbery credentials from her past writing, most notably in the form of the 1996 Newbery Honor book What Jamie Saw, but The Memory Bank ...
