Book Description
When Mordred announces a three-day weekend for DSA, Wiglaf and his friends (including his Pig Latin–speaking pig, Daisy) are off to Erica’s castle. But when they arrive, they discover that Erica’s father, King Ken, has come down with a horrible case of liver pox. The wizard Zelnoc manages to cure the king’s pox, but as with all the wizard’s spells, there’s a magical mishap. Now, King Ken can only speak in Pig Latin! Can Zelnoc fix his mistake, or is there a better chance that pigs will fly?

Book Review
"I stink!" How can you not love such swagger and candor? And Kate and Jim McMullan's big-eyed, loudmouthed garbage truck really must stink--by its own admission, and given all those smelly bags it's been cramming into its huge back hopper.

Most kids already love garbage trucks on general principle, and one assumes that can only go double for a sass-mouthed, animated dumper like this one, out on its early-morning rounds: "See those bags? I SMELL BREAKFAST! Crew? Get me to the curb! Lights? Blink! Brakes? Squeal! Tail gate? SAY AH!" The many opportunities for loud, large-type sound effects should make for spirited readings, and a recipe for "alphabet soup" lets young readers practice their letters, working through the ABCs from apple cores to zipped-up ziti with zucchini.

Baby Goose

From Publishers Weekly
This Mother Goose collection answers the burning question: Just how cute would it be if 27 nursery rhymes became completely baby-centric? Loosely sorting the verse into four sections that correspond to the arc of a baby's day, McMullan (If I Were Your Bunny) takes certain liberties with the verse as she casts infants in the title roles. For "Oh, the Grand Old Duke of York," she installs "the Baby Duke of York" to command 10,000 men. The three men in a tub are similarly deposed, as "Baby Splasher, Baby Slosher/ Baby Soapy Face Washer" replace the butcher, baker and candlestick-maker. While there's no denying that the target audience is notorious for its egocentrism, the rhymes rarely gain anything in this translation: "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" is no more meaningful when the second line reads, "Babies wonder...

From School Library Journal
Grade 5-8–The true story of the Lewis and Clark expedition and the Corps of Discovery is as exciting as any adventure story. McMullan has created a highly detailed account of this journey using her ancestor George Shannon, an actual teenage member of the Corps of Discovery, as the author of this fictional journal. She has taken some liberties with the truth, placing her fictional Shannon in a more adventurous part of the expedition than he was in real life. The book follows the Corps as it goes up the Missouri River and west to the Pacific, with the teen describing the hardships they faced and the adventures they had. Some sketches and maps clarify the prose. The journal has an authentic tone using sentence structure and vocabulary that could have been written at that time, but Shannon's personality...

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2-Like the train in Watty Piper's The Little Engine That Could (Platt & Munk, 1930), the tugboat in I'm Mighty shows how one small machine can accomplish mighty tasks. The tug, depicted in the manner of early animation seen in Steamboat Willie, with eyes for windows and a bumper mouth, checks his gear, knows what he can do, and tows everything from a low-riding tanker to a "six-decker doozie," steering these behemoths safely to harbor. Text appears in assorted sizes and colors, often escalating to reflect the intensity of the little boat's actions. Young listeners will enjoy repeating many of the words and using them to chime in on the story. Illustrations rendered from the tiny tug's perspective appear to be a combination of paints and inks that boldly reinforce the little worker and his...
