Night of the Living Worms by Dave Coverly (from a Two Thumbs Up Reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Sunday, Nov 29, 2015 at 4:43pm

What's a bird to do when his sibling is a big-time celebrity? It's a question Speed Bump has to deal with every single morning, because his brother happens to be the one and only Early Bird. You know, THE Early Bird, who ALWAYS gets the worm! Unfortunately, Speed Bump is a sleepy little bird with a big head and tiny wings who's worried he'll never live up to his brother. But he has a great buddy, the ever-hungry Slingshot, who knows how to lift his spirits. Together, they end up on an adventure deep in the nighttime forest, where they're forced to confront something more terrifying - and slimier - than they've ever imagined.

I like Night of the Living Worms because its got a cute scrubby character who's got tiny wings and a head bigger than his body, so he can't fly very good. I like the part where Speed Bump (the main character) and his best friend Slingshot go and poop on a guy's head. I think this is a good book for boys ages 6 to 9.

A note on holiday orders

by Tyler Vitt - Wednesday, Nov 25, 2015 at 8:06pm

The holidays are coming, and so are the deadlines for special ordering books.

As a rule of thumb, we consider December 10th as the last day we can order a book and have it arrive before Christmas. We will still gladly take orders after this date, but we cannot guarantee they will arrive before Christmas.

Nevertheless, we strongly encourage you to get in touch with us as soon as possible with orders you intend to give as gifts. Some publishers take longer to ship, and weather is always a concern this time of year.

Please contact your nearest McNally Robinson bookstore if you have any questions, or if you'd like to place an order. We can set up orders in person, over the phone, via email, or through our web store.

The Princess in Black and the Perfect Princess Party by Shannon Hale (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Sunday, Nov 15, 2015 at 3:40pm

Today is Princess Magnolia’s birthday party, and she wants everything to be perfect. But just as her guests are arriving . . . Brring! Brring! The monster alarm! Princess Magnolia runs to the broom closet, ditches her frilly clothes, and becomes the Princess in Black! She rushes to the goat pasture, defeats the monster, and returns to the castle before her guests discover her secret. But every time Princess Magnolia is about to open her presents, the monster alarm rings again. And every time she rushes back—an inside-out dress here, a missing shoe there—it gets harder to keep the other princesses from being suspicious. Don’t those monsters understand that now is not a good time for an attack?

I like The Princess in Black and the Perfect Princess Party because it's a cool fantasy story about a princess who fights monsters undercover. I like the character and how she tries to keep her secret. The book is a good book for young readers, I think, because there are not too many words to read and it's easy to understand. I think it's cool how Princess Magnolia has a secret passage way in the broom closet and that her horse has a secret passage that goes into a tree. I personally love the details in the illustration. This is an amazing story and I love this book!
