This must get monotonous but I can't contain myself. Over the past week my just-turned 9 year-old read a book title Peter and the Starcatchers. Story-wise it's about Peter Pan before Hook became Hook and before Wendy.
The story is derivative and 'blah' to me. Not to my daughter, though. That book is BIG! And it has very few pictures. It's almost as large as a piece of paper and over an inch thick and small type. She devoured that thing!
Right now she's back to the Sisters Grimm (book 4). She's really excited because there's a fifth book out and she really wants to finish both. We got them from the library yesterday. I wonder how long those will take?
Update: She finished both Sisters Grimm books (4 and 5) in four days.
