Julia’s House for Lost Creatures by Ben Hatke – Value $13.03 on Amazon (retail price $17.99)
Julia’s House for Lost Creatures is about a girl named Julia who lives in a house that rests on a huge turtle’s back. They settle next to the sea and Julia hangs a sign outside hoping to get some company. Before long she has trolls, mermaids and a host of other mystical creatures invading her space, making a lot of noise and an incredible mess. Luckily this little sign maker is able to solve her problem with some quick thinking. Fabulous illustrations bring this story to life. I have this one in my library and my students love it. I’m glad to now have a copy for home.
Henry Hodges Needs a Friend by Andy Andrews – Value $12.14 on Amazon (retail price $14.99)
Henry is a boy who doesn’t have any friends that live nearby and doesn’t like toys. His parents decide that they will find him a friend. They surprise him by bringing him to the animal shelter ad adopting a dog for him. Now Henry and the dog are happy and have someone to play with and love. This story fell a bit flat for me. My son didn’t take to it either other than liking the fact that it had his cousin Henry’s name on the cover.
Verdict: We really enjoyed Julia’s House for Lost Creatures this month. The retail value this month is just over $25 which is ok as it is above the cost of the box. Though Lil’ Bear Book Club says the subscription comes with 2-4 books each month I’ve only received more than two books once last spring. Getting a third (or even fourth) book would be nice once in a while and would definitely increase the value.
