Theodore Boone: The Abduction by John Grisham.

We first met the two best friends, Theodore Boone and April Finnemore, in John Grisham’s first kid’s book, Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer. Now, in Theodore Boone: The Abduction, the second book in the series, April has been abducted, and Theo wants to take action and help as much as he can to find his best friend.

Everyone at school is worried about April. Theo sets up a team to help find her. But when a body turns up in the water, the town gets more and more worried about April and if she is still alive or nott. To find out more, you will have to read Theodore Boone: The Abduction.

I enjoyed this book because it kept me guessing about what would happen next from beginning to end. I loved every part of every chapter — I couldn’t put it down! Grisham’s writing makes you feel like you are part of the book. From The Stacks blog.

Every Thing On It by Shel Silverstein.

A spider lives inside my head
Who weaves a strange and wondrous web
Of silken threads and silver strings
To catch all sorts of flying things,
Like crumbs of thought and bits of smiles
And specks of dried-up tears,
And dust of dreams that catch and cling
For years and years and years . . .

Have you ever read a book with everything on it? Well, here it is, an amazing collection of never-before-published poems and drawings from the creator of Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, and Falling Up. You will say Hi-ho for the toilet troll, get tongue-tied with Stick-a-Tongue-Out-Sid, play a highly unusual horn, and experience the joys of growing down.

What’s that? You have a case of the Lovetobutcants? Impossible! Just come on in and let the magic of Shel Silverstein bend your brain and open your heart.

The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly.

‘Everything You Can Imagine is Real’

High in his attic bedroom, twelve-year-old David mourns the loss of his mother. He is angry and he is alone, with only the books on his shelf for company.

But those books have begun to whisper to him in the darkness, and as he takes refuge in the myths and fairytales so beloved of his dead mother he finds that the real world and the fantasy world have begun to meld. The Crooked Man has come, with his mocking smile and his enigmatic words: ‘Welcome, your majesty. All hail the new king.’

And as war rages across Europe, David is violently propelled into a land that is both a construct of his imagination yet frighteningly real, a strange reflection of his own world composed of myths and stories, populated by wolves and worse-than-wolves, and ruled over by a faded king who keeps his secrets in a legendary book . . .

The Book of Lost Things. From the official site of John Connolly.
