What Does A Good Book Look Like?

Like this...

The Book:

The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 2)

From the Series: 

Another super series Cole read last year...

Peter and the Starcatchers

Peter and the Shadow Thieves

Peter and the Secret of Rundoon (The Starcatchers)

Peter and the Sword of Mercy (Starcatchers)

Here's a blurb from the publisher:
Follow the adventures of Peter, Molly, Tinker Bell, and the Lost Boys in all three Peter Pan prequels: Peter and the Starcatchers, Peter and the Shadow Thieves, and Peter and the Secret of Rundoon. Don't even think of starting this trilogy unless you're sitting in a comfortable chair and have lots of time. These fast-paced, impossible-to-put-down adventures are action-packed, touching, and tons of fun!
Cole adored this series and recommends it to all who ask!  He's still waiting on me to finish the first one!

I'm waiting on him to spend his next book allowance on this title...

The Invention of Hugo Cabret

...and he's waiting on me to break down and buy it, knowing I can't hold out much longer.  It's quite an original book. It is 525 pages in length of which 284 are beautifully illustrated by the author's pencil drawings.  The plot relies both on the pages filled with text as well as those with illustration.  A perfect choice for a reluctant reader as pages will turn faster than a book filled with pure words.  A great choice too for the avid reader who will enjoy the novelty of the story being told through the rich illustrations in addition to the written word.

Happy Reading!
