Image via WikipediaUp this week for book reviews are:
1. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
This is on my FitG list. And only because it is on that list did I make myself finish reading it. Okay, that is sad. But, it just never seemed to end for me. If you's like to read a full review on this book click here.
2. War Horse by Michael Morpurgo
This story of World War I is told in the POV of Joey, a British farm horse turned into a war horse. As a farm horse he loved his owner/friend Albert. Throughout the war we see him long to find Albert again and go back to the peaceful fields of home. But will he?
I really liked the idea of writing about war through the eyes of an animal. I think this helps bring a deep and hard subject to a younger audience in a less threatening way. I think it is a great middle school read....maybe even upper elementary.
This book was previewed for the library.
