Readaloud: The Journey
We were all SO excited to begin book two of this series - The Journey. The owl band from book one is in search of the Great Gahoole Tree to find out if the legends about it are true. The books remind me a little of the Poppy books by Avi, another series we really enjoyed quite a few months ago (a year?!). So far the story is just as tightly written, and you really, really care about the characters. Every night we read two chapters and it is pure torture for all of us to put the book down. We keep trying to get into bed sooner so we can read more, but no luck yet. Maybe tomorrow!
