Mailbox Monday- April 25

mailbox monday


Mailbox Monday is on tour at Passages to the Past. I received two books last week.


book cover of The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland by Catherynne M. Valente
The Girl Who Circumnaviagted Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making
by Catherynne M. Valente
Feiwel & Friends (May 10, 2011)

Twelve-year-old September lives in Omaha, and used to have an ordinary life, until her father went to war and her mother went to work. One day, September is met at her kitchen window by a Green Wind (taking the form of a gentleman in a green jacket), who invites her on an adventure, implying that her help is needed in Fairyland. The new Marquess is unpredictable and fickle, and also not much older than September. Only September can retrieve a talisman the Marquess wants from the enchanted woods, and if she doesn’t . . . then the Marquess will make life impossible for the inhabitants of Fairyland. September is already making new friends, including a book-loving Wyvern and a mysterious boy named Saturday.

book cover of Say Hello to Zorro! by Carter Goodrich

Say Hello To Zorro!
by Carter Goodrich
Simon & Schuster (March 22, 2011)

Mister Bud is a dog of routine. He has wake up time, nap time, rest time, dinner time, etc. And everyone knows to follow his schedule.
Then disaster strikes.  A stranger comes home at "make a fuss time" and throws everything off! Zorro is little bit bossy and Mister Bud wants nothing to do with him. But when the dogs discover they like the same things (like chasing the cat and napping), everything becomes more fun. As long as everyone follows the schedule.

A BIG thank you to all the above authors and publishers for providing the books!!!

Great mailbox this week! I have to admit that both of these books are new to me, but I am looking forward to seeing what you think of them!

Your reading varieties interest me. I hardly would go for these, voluntarily.
