Books I read in May 2010

I don’t think this is all I read in May but it’s all I have noted.

Stars Beneath Your Bed is a cool concept the dust you sweep away has been part of the stars but it was as dry as, well, dust.

There is a Bird on Your Head got a three year old to declare it was a funny book.

I can see why my elementary kids snap up the Araminta Spookie books – they are wacky and fast moving.

Dancing at Midnight was both sweetly romantic and unpleasant and unnerving.  Not sure where I stand on it.

I enjoyed the chapter in the Great Shark Stories of the account by the scientist who studied sharks the most.

The Ultimate Indoor Games Book is excellent.  Good games, well thought out.

The Ronin – the artwork is a little bit cramped in this early work and the story is more distance than it will be later.  Even with these quibbles, it’s still the best samurai action story in print.
