Guess who?!.... It's Kiki!

Yes, it's me! And I want to tell you about a new children's book I found, it's called "Guess Again!" by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Adam Rex.  It's a book of funny silly riddles...

"He steals carrots from the neighbor's yard.
His hair is soft, his teeth are hard.
His floppy ears are long and funny. Can you guess who?..."

If you said BUNNY, then I say "Guess Again!"
This book is funny! This book is silly! I think you'll love it!

Guess Again!

If you are in the mood for tough, smart girls doing exciting, fun stuff in New York City..(and who wouldn't be?!)
You gotta read the KIKI STRIKE books. Now, I know what you're thinking..." Kiki, you're just pushing those books because the heroine's name is KIKI."  But that's just not true.
These books are filled with adventure and excitement;  strong savvy girls being.. strong and savvy! It is just a coincidence that her name is also Kiki.

Think, Girl Scouts meet Indiana Jones meets the "A" Team. I loved both books, Kiki Strike: Inside the shadow city, and Kiki Strike: The Empress's Tomb. Both by Kirsten Miller.

Kiki Strike: Inside the Shadow City      Kiki Strike: The Empress's Tomb  
I'm keeping my claws crossed for a book 3 to be out! Soon.
In fact, I just might drop Kirsten Miller a line and ask her for more in the Kiki Strike series! Kiki and her gang are just the sort of role models for today's girls.. or kittens!

Eagerly anticipated by myself, and others, the 3rd and final book in the Hunger games series, 
"Mockingjay" by Suzanne Collins.

Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games)     And, sequel to The Maze Runner -
 "The Scorch Trials"   The Scorch Trials

They will be out in August 2010, and October 2010, respectively.
Both are excellent series that appeal to boys, but I know a lot of girls love them too. Not just me!

Well I gtg eat and get ready for some TV watching!
I'll let you know how that turns out!

Mrrrow for now!

Oh Em Gee!

I was browsing some book websites today and look what I found! Some new books coming soon!! I can hardly contain myself! It makes me want to go roll in cat nip!

Dexter Is Delicious A new Dexter book! Dexter is brought to us by the very talented Jeff Lindsay and it will be coming out September 7th 2010! I can hardly wait!
Dexter is my hero! Well, one of them anyway... another one of my heroes, Aloysious Pendergast. He is 
the highly intelligent FBI Special Agent, who knows a little bit of everything! Wow is he good!
His new book is called Fever Dream, written by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Coming May 11th!
Fever Dream (Pendergast)

And finally, a book for kids, I love this title!

The Fast and the FurriestGet it? Sounds like Fast and the Furious, the movie, but it's about a dog and his boy, and their training for the dog agility trials! It is out now, written by Andy Behrens, and I will read it soon to let you know how it is. It sounds very funny!


Mrroww for now,

Kiki C.
