A New Friend, A New Review

Hey, everyone, it's Carl and I'd like to welcome a new friend, Joe, to the ranks of the reader guys. He was in the library doing homework when my cosmic intuition told me that he could be a potential reader guy. We got to talking, I told him all about the glories of our blog (not to mention that he'd get a free book for writng a review), and he got so excited that he filled out a paper form right then. Here's his review:

Ttile and Author: Ghost Soldier by Elaine Marie Alphin

This book was about: A boy who goes to live with his dad at a close friend's house in North Carolina. When he gets there, he finds something unexpected, but you'll have to read it to find out what it is that he finds!

I liked (or didn't like) the book because: I liked this book because the story seemed to come to life! It had me wondering what wiil happen next!

Thanks, Joe! A good book should make you wonder what'll happen next. So does a good review!

Well, here's Joe with his free book:
In case you can't tell, he got an Encyclopedia Brown mystery in his hands. He's a big fan of Encyclopedia Brown and may write a review of that one. Let us hear from soon, Joe!

Good job! I love it when librarians and teachers ask boys what they think of the book. A lot of your patrons will want to read this book now.

Yes, indeed! That's why we do what we do.
