IN THE CLASSROOM THIS WEEK

The folks at Lerner Publishing sent us a stack of myth and fables from across the lands: Greek, African, Aztec, Korean, Swiss, and English. Also from Lerner are two books (Twisted Journeys) that are part comic, part prose, all scary, and all choose-your-own-adventure. We’ve reviewed another such book here. Library reinforced bindings, lexile ratings, and interesting topics make for fun reading for kids and early teens.

That’s not all. We have all kinds of good stuff, fun stuff, cool stuff, bloody stuff, stuff for different ages and maturity levels. Check it all out and enjoy.

I haven't even finished /The Lost Road/ chunk of the Dark Tower. I have 1-5, but I wasn't expecting the next set to come so early. It must be the mechanizations of Maerlyn's Grapefruit.

Schoeychaelly,

I've read the first volume of stories, but nothing more. I love The Dark Tower and have enjoyed the comic so far. I'm not sure I would include it in the classroom, but I love it.

Thanks for sharing Kevin and Sch....
