On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday through Friday. It's where we list all the books we want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. I figure it's a great way to make me go through my ever-expanding wishlist and really look at some of the things on there.
It's also an event that you can join in with by linking your own OMW post with Mr. Linky at Book Chick City. If you want to know more click here.
This one looks so cool! It's a "freely abridged" version of a story written in 1920. The story sounds like a mix of The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Chronicles of Narnia with some fairies tossed in for fun. there's quite a bit going on, but from everything I've read The Flint Heart is supposed to be a fun story for the whole family. I've put it on our library order and we should have it around February. I'm pretty excited to read this one.
The book trailer was put together by John Rocco who also illustrates the book. I've shown this one to some of my second and third graders and it's created a lot of excitement.
