Obviously i disagree with her.
Anyway.. i digress... i started this post cos i found some really cool books that i can't wait to get my hands on... however, these books are not available in Singapore yet. Trust me.. i have checked...
1. Septimus Heap, Book One: Magyk (Septimus Heap) by Angie Sage, Mark Zug (Illustrator)
2. Runny Babbit : A Billy Sook by Shel Silverstein (Illustrator)
3. The Book of Bunny Suicides by Andy Riley (this book is available... but was out of stock til recently. i have yet to go down to the shop to get it. i got a copy of the sequel Return of the Bunny Suicides for Christmas and it was hilarious... so i can't wait to see the book that started it all)
Now.. from the reviews and the blurbs on Septimus Heap made the book sounds really captivating.
The seventh son of the seventh son, aptly named Septimus Heap, is stolen the night he is born by a midwife who pronounces him dead. That same night, the baby's father, Silas Heap, comes across a bundle in the snow containing a new born girl with violet eyes. The Heaps take this helpless newborn into their home, name her Jenna, and raise her as their own. But who is this mysterious baby girl, and what really happened to their beloved son Septimus?
At the same time.. Shel Sliverstein (1930 -1999) has a new book out. i've been a big fan of his books ever since my friend gave me one years and years ago.... i love his simple yet quirky line drawings... so yeah... a humorous tale about a bunny filled with orginal word play.. a poem that both the young and the young at heart will enjoy.
Runny Babbit lent to wunch
And heard the saitress way,
