Mr. Staccato
Spent many carefree hours hunting clues with the Hardy boys and defending Redwall Abbey.

Lemony Snickers
Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.

Ben Draws Trouble is a cute story about an artistic boy who loves to draw sketches of people he meets. Ben's sketches are pretty accurate, and it's pretty clear that means they aren't always flattering. The best part of this book is the surprise ending. Just when readers think Ben is in some serious trouble headed toward the principal's office, the story takes a fantastic detour and strolls right on past the trouble. The illustrations are extraordinary, which comes as little surprise when you consider they are the work of Matt Davies, Newsday’s Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist known for his political cartoons.
