Victor Dickens hates to read, and nothing can change his mind. Or can it? How about a parrot with a peg leg? Or a rabbit with black barn boots? Or a field mouse with gold coins? Anything can happen on the whimsical, wonderful night when a little boy with a stubborn hatred of books discovers that printed words can take on lives of their own. Reissued here with a text crafted for even younger readers, I Hate to Read! won the 1993 Benjamin Franklin Award upon its original publication.Although "most of the time Victor Dickens was a really good kid," he manifests all the symptoms of the "I Hate to Read Syndrome." One day, while Victor is pretending to read so that he can move on to his favorite activity--watching TV--an alligator pops out of the pages of the book and bids Victor to jump into his pockets, where other children await story hour. Victor resists the invitation, as well as those issued by a succession of outlandish animals who try to entice him to read. A bizarre dream turns the stubborn boy around, however, and when he awakens he decides that he feels "a little sad" for the animals, for "What would happen to them if their stories were lost?" So Victor opens his book to look for his friends, and, predictably, becomes engrossed. Marshall's text may be didactic but it is liberally sprinkled with clever wordplay, and her book design offers such diversions as folios facing every conceivable direction. Yet most impressive is Delessert's inventive art, which wreaks playful havoc with perspective and scale, and features striking, earth-tone pastels punctuated with splashes of vibrant color. Ages 6-up.-- Publishers WeeklyBook Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 4/16/2013Pages: 32Reading Level: Age 5 and Up
Jon Scieszka's Guys Read Library-a collection of books featuring contributions from some of the biggest names in children's literature-is one of the hottest new tween series around thanks to the hilarious, star-studded debut title, Guys Read: Funny Business, and its equally buzzed-about follow-ups, Guys Read: Thriller and Guys Read: The Sports Pages. Those books came together as advertised: filled with short stories by some of the biggest names and freshest talent around, but not your typical anthology, something exciting, edgy, visual, one-of-a-kind, and featuring authors from many different backgrounds but who are all kid-tested and teacher-approved. And the reception so far shows that it's working: excellent sales, stellar reviews, and a rabid reception from teachers and kids as Jon and the various authors tour the country. For the fourth installment, we've turned to another perennially popular genre: SCI-FI/FANTASY. And the contributor list is another who's-who of great writers for guys: Rick Riordan--who has written an all new and exclusive Percy Jackson tale specifically for our volume--Tom Angleberger of Oragami Yoda fame, Newbery Medalist Rebecca Stead, Shannon Hale, D.J. MacHale, Eric Nylund, Kenneth Oppel, Neal Shusterman, Shaun Tan, and none other than the late Ray Bradbury (who we will be featuring by way of a rarely-reprinted story of his), not to mention Greg Ruth providing cover and interior artwork. And like the first three books, it is sure to find an ent
