A Couple of Boys Have the Best Week Ever
written by Marla Frazee
HMH Books for Young Readers, 2008

James and Eamon spend a week of their summer vacation at Eamon’s grandparents’ beach house. Eamon’s grandfather thought that going to Nature Camp would be a good idea. He also tried to get the boys interested in his favorite place: Antarctica.

After having a full schedule all week, they discovered something interesting when they stopped. Can it be there is fun in everyday things? This is a cross between a picture book and a comic book, where the dialogue is in balloons.

Why a Throwback Thursday for Book Reviews?

Those of us who blog about books are a community. We read lots of books, we write lots of reviews, and we share those reviews with fellow book lovers and those in search of books for children and teens.

We write so many reviews that, over time, they get buried by other, newer reviews. BUT! that book we read three years ago will always be new to some reader, somewhere. So why not share that review with a new audience?

Here are the participation guidelines:

  • If you reviewed the same book we’re featuring, add your permalink to the original review on the Reading Tub website or in the InLinkz Linkup.
  • Want to (re)share a review you posted in May 2009, then add your permalink in the InLinkz Linkup. [No, it doesn’t have to be a book you liked; but it does have to be a review that you take a lot of pride in.]
  • Add any notes about the review in the comments, please.
