Let me tell you about a couple of great books. One is Whales On Stilts by M. T. Anderson. This is the one I'd nominate as Goofiest Book I've Read This Year. It's funny with really goofy humor. There's a girl named Lily whose dad works for a mysterious company that is supposed to make stilts for whales. That's weird enough, but then she sees her dad's boss, who has a whale's tail sticking out of the back of his suit, pour salt brine water over his head (which has a bag over it) Then she finds out that this company is part of a plot to take over the world through death and destruction by fitting whales with laser eyes! This book gets goofier and funnier, but it gets pretty exciting too. There are chases, narrow escapes---and whales blasting towns with laser eyes! It's not like anything you've read lately and you'll really enjoy it.

The other one is Instruments of Death--written by Stewart Ross; illustrations by Inklink. (Sorry--no picture available) It's a graphic novel about anicent China. A 12-year-old boy is suddenly taken from his home to be a zither player for the first emperor to unify all of China. He plays the zither (a stringed instrument) very well and becomes a favorite of the emperor but then he gets caught up in a scheme to assassinate the emperor. It's a good story and there are lots of interesting facts about ancient China at the back of the book.
OK---enjoy the weekend and let us hear from all you Jedi readers!
