For the holidays, I'm reviewing a book or series every day from December 1st through 24th.
Today's books are Egghead, Finicky and Glitch, this year's installments in The Aldo Zelnick Comic Novels series by Karla Oceanak, illustrated by Kendra Spanjer, last year's holiday pick for reluctant readers.
Egghead brings us Halloween, Aldo's study of Albert Einstein, and his insistence that he can't learn Spanish. In Finicky, a new policy brings healthy--but terrible tasting--food to the school cafeteria, and Aldo and friends decide to lead a protest. Glitch brings the holiday season where Aldo learns about Hanukkah and the values of giving and togetherness.
The Adlo Zelnick Comic Novels are published by Bailiwick Press and retail for $12.95 a piece (hardcover). I read complimentary copies from the publisher. You can get yours from Left Bank Books today (see links above)!
