Tips for Tuesday - Books: Surprises According to Humphrey and Beastia

We may have been given some of the below mentioned book for free for review purposes. This post may also contain affiliate links. If you click on a link and make a purchase, we may be compensated. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.
Me - Today I am recommending Surprises According to Humphrey by Betty G. Birney. This is a book about Humphrey the classroom hamsters. There are a whole series of books about Humphrey. These books are good for kids who are not just starting to read chapter books but a little bit beyond that. The books are really funny. They are told from the hamsters point of view, and the hamster has human emotions. Kids who like funny books and books about animals would enjoy these books.
Mom - Today I am recommending Beastia by Zoe Cruz. With a new version of Beauty and the Beast currently in movie theaters, this book is very timely. It puts a unique spin on the old familiar Beauty and the Beast story. Here the beast character is a female. Rebekah Austin was not the nicest girl particularly to Jo-Ann who used to be her friend and suddenly wasn't good enough for her anymore. Then, Rebekah's Dad dies, and she gets kidnapped and deformed by a mad man, and her life turns upside down. This book with its fast moving short chapters is a really quick read. It should be required reading for all teenage girls (or any girls) who think that all they'll ever need to get by is their looks, and therefore how they treat other people doesn't matter.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.
