THE HEIGHT OF POPULARITY

I love seeing the most popular books at other school libraries. Mr. Schu has his final checkout stats for the 2013-14 campaign at Watch. Connect. Read. Click here for Part 1. Click here for Part 2.

ERIC HILL 1927-2014

Sad news. The creator of Spot the Dog has passed away. A.V. Club remembers Eric Hill.

YOU ARE NOT AN ADULT

You’ve heard the controversy (again) about adults reading YA books. Have you heard the author of the infamous Slate article talk about it on NPR? Click here to listen.

Sleepless Knight cover 300x300 Morning Notes: Displeased Robot Edition

Sleepless Knight (Adventures in Cartooning, Book 1) by James Sturm, Andrew Arnold, and Alexis Frederick-Frost. Out April 14, 2015

I learned about this book from the SLJ blog Good Comics for Kids – which you should be reading, if you aren’t already. The crew that created the excellent Adventures in Cartooning books (which get checked out all the time around here) is stepping out of the instructive mode with this story about a lost teddy bear. Given how well the A.I.C. books turned out, consider this one to look out for.

I hesitate to call TheBlaze.com a trusted source of this sort of information, but this video highlighted a couple of the odd children’s book challenges that have occurred.
