The Jean Little Library is the personal library of Jennifer Wharton, a youth services librarian at a small public library in Wisconsin. Jennifer is one of our panelists this year for Easy Readers and Short Chapter Books, and she blogs not only at Check It Out @MML but also provides insightful book reviews and other helpful resources via her blog for the Jean Little Library.
Recently, Jennifer reviewed Cybils nominee Alice's Shooting Star, the latest in a series by Tim Kennemore following the tribulations and adventures of middle child Alice. This latest volume shows Alice dealing with her imaginative little sister, Rosie, and figuring out where she herself fits into her family. More than that, it's just plain funny:
From Rosie's insane stories, to Oliver's ridiculous sulks, to the final laugh-out-loud catastrophe, this book will keep the reader giggling all the way through.
