Chatterbox: Blab About Books

Old Books
Old BooksThe ...

Old Books

The first Part is probably going to be a Poem-Rant, so you can just skip to the end: 

They sit around

Collecting buckets of dust

Until the occational time

You take them out of your libary

Wait -

Is that Stick the Cat

My favorite book

In the second grade?

Yes, it is

With one cat who is skinny and another

Who is


Yes, that is an actual joke in Stick the Cat

Not to mention

A hole in the wall

That leads from one apartment

To the next 

Is that Bad Kitty?

Continuing the cat theme?

Scraching sofa's

Refusing to

Go to the Vet

Or take a Bath

Pickled Watermelon peaks out

A girl learning about her family

Waves Hello

Before disapeering into the page 

Once again

With her disapeerance

Out comes Horrible Harry

Making messes all day

Playing in Class

Playing in Resses

No-stop playing

Last but not least

Is that The House of Pets?

About a ladie

With more pets than she can care for?

It sure is, so now I shall stop

If you didn't understand already, this is for writing or just reccomending old books. Books that you loved when you were younger that never mad it to the New York Times Bestsellers list. Put your reccomended age level for the book near it.

Here are some of mine:

The House of Pets (8-12)

Pickled Watermelon (8-12)

Horrible Harry (6-8)

Stick the Cat (7-10)

Adventures of Rebbi Harvey (7-11)

Lemons (8-12) 

The list goes on but I don't want to make this too long.

These books are rather well known but I loved them. The A to Z mysteries (6-9)

Great idea for a thread though!!

-All of the Cornelia Funke books, but especially Dragon Rider and Igraine the Brave. 8+ These are really good fantasy books.

-All of the Beverly Cleary books, but especially the Ramona series. 8+ Just...yes.

-All of the Roald Dahl books, but especially Matilda and the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory books. 8-9+ Matilda is literal magic.

-The Clementine by Sara Pennypacker! These books are amazing. Probably 8+, again, these are really sweet and hilarious. The illustrations are really awesome too.

-All of the Kate DiCamillo books, but especially the Raymie Nightingale series (10-11+), Flora and Ulysses (9+), the Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane (this one's a tearjerker, 9+), and The Tale of Desperaux (9+). So good. This author is amazing.

The Secret Series by Phuedonymous (spelling?) Bosch. I don't know the age range. I read it when I was younger, and I still love thinking about it.

The Hero's Guide series, I don't know the author.

I really loved the Stella Batts books when I was younger! I would say the age range is 7-10, but I haven't read them in a while, so I'm not sure how accurate that is.
