What We Are Reading Right Now – #13

February 20th, 2013 · 2 Comments

Hood #2: If you haven’t been reading The Time Rider Series by Alex Scarrow… then now would be a really good time to get started… my boys have been grabbing them from the library whenever they spot one and were thrilled to receive book #7 in the series, Time Riders the Pirate Kings, to review. … The story is of course a classic, old lady grumbles that her house isn’t big enough and the wise old man suggests that she takes in various members of the farmyard, of course the crew in the cottage get more and more squashed as time goes by and when eventually they release all the animals back into the yard – then the cottage feels like a mansion… read it, if you haven’t already.
