Trilogies have captured the sixth-graders’ imagination recently. Last week they discussed Jonah’s pick: Terry Pratchett’s satire of religion and self-imposed limitations, Truckers, first in a trilogy. And Kalvin announced his pick for November: the third Ink*book by Cornelia Funke, Inkdeath. I hope those of you who read the very long first two books will not be too bummed out that they are summarized in about four pages at the beginning of the third book. At least this helps those of us who hadn’t read them to just jump in at the third book.
For the fourth-graders, Zack selected Heat by Mike Lupica.
