So far, I am doing good on my promise not to purchase any more books and making use of our lovely public libraries here in Singapore. Fairly recently, I went on a book-borrowing binge of Tom Angleberger’s books that are available here. I’ve been pretty envious of so many kidlitosphere enthusiasts raving about Origami Yoda that I thought I might as well find out what the hoopla is all about for myself.
Origami Yoda and Darth Paper
It’s a shame that we don’t have The Secret of Fortune Wookiee yet. For the meanwhile though, I’d feast my eyes on The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back.
Halfpott and Fake Mustache
More Books about Books
Since our current bimonthly theme is on Books about Books and the River of Words I also borrowed a few books from the NIE Library that celebrate this love for the written word. Here are a few titles I found.
I actually borrowed Bambert’s Book of Missing Stories by Reinhardt Jung and illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark previously but didn’t have a chance to read it. I hope I do find the time to read this book for our theme and feature this one as well. I am also excited to share The Book that was Handed Down by Yixian Quek, illustrated by Grace Duan Ying and designed by Goh Caili.
The Wrong Book by Nick Bland and The story of a little mouse trapped in a book by Monique Felix also look mighty fun.
