It's Monday...

Monday has come around again and I am joining in the meme over at Mentor Texts.
Hop on over and join in at the Mentor Text Blog. 

I read just the one book this week - Super Finn by Leonie Agnew.  It was a quick read once I got going, and I even surprised a few laugh out loud moments out of myself.

This book would mainly suit about Year 6, although one of my Year 8 students awarded it 4 out of 5 stars.

Leonie Agnew is a teacher and I think there was some gentle ribbing going on regarding how PC our schools can sometimes be.

This coming week I thought I would go for:
Marty Maguire by Kate Messner            - been meaning to read this for awhile.
The Flying Beaver Brother and the Fishy Business by Maxwell Eaton.
Babymouse  Puppy Love.


  1. It's always good to find a recommendation for books for the younger students. This looks fun (& funny). Thanks, Kathryn.

  2. I bet my 6 soon to be 7 year old son would love this one! Always looking for something that he might grab onto. Thanks!

  3. I've never heard of Super Finn but it looks fun! I like the colors. Marty McGuire is great. Colby and I were talking about her on our blogs this weekend. Great characters!
