Selections for November 2019

 Jack: The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk Jack by Liesl Shurtliff

All work and no play makes Jack extremely bored.  It's not that he's bad; he just longs for adventure--and there's nothing adventurous about toiling day and night to grow yucky green stuff.  Adventure finally arrives one day in the form of giants, and soon Jack is chasing them to a land beyond the clouds, with his little sister, Annabella, in tow.  There's giant fun to be had: puddings to swim in, spoons to use as catapults, monster toads to carry off pesky little sisters.

Full of Beans Full of Beans by Jennifer L. Holm

Grown-ups lie. That's one truth ten-year-old Beans knows for sure.  He and his gang know how to spot a whopper a mile away, because they are the savviest bunch of barefoot conchs (that means "locals") in all of Key West.  Not that Beans really minds; it's 1934, the middle of the Great Depression.  With no jobs on the island, and no money anywhere, who can really blame the grown-ups for telling a few tales?  Besides, Beans isn't anyone's fool.  In fact, he has plans.  Big plans.  And the consequences might surprise even Beans himself.
