Mailbox Monday #541

Mailbox Monday has become a tradition in the blogging world, and many of us thank Marcia of The Printed Page for creating it.

It now has it’s own blog where book bloggers can link up their own mailbox posts and share which books they bought or which they received for review from publishers, authors, and more.

Leslie, Martha, and I also will share our picks from everyone’s links in the new feature Books that Caught Our Eye. We hope you’ll join us.

Here’s what I received:

Fizz and the Police Dog Tryouts by Lesley Gibbes and Stephen Michael King, which I purchased for my daughter.

Meet Fizz – a small, white, fluffy dog who longs for adventure in this hilarious and action-packed series for newly confident readers. Fizz heads to the Police Dog Tryouts, determined to become a daring dog detective! He may not look like a police dog, but he’s brave, clever and super-fast. Can he prove that he can do the job?

Ella Diaries: Double Dare You by Meredith Costah and Danielle McDonald, which I purchased for my daughter.

It’s a new school year, and it’s perfect. Until class starts that is, and EVERYTHING goes wrong. Ella can’t believe that her absolutely WORST ENEMY EVER, Peach, is sitting next to her! No matter how far Ella moves her new pencil case across the desk, Peach is IN HER SPACE. Where’s her BFF Zoe? How can this year get ANY WORSE?

The Mysterious World of Cosentino: The Missing Ace by Jack Heath and James Hart, which I purchased for my daughter.

Cosentino’s performances at his run-down old theatre attract the wrong kind of attention when the Ace of Spades dashes through the door begging to be saved from the clutches of the evil two-headed King! When Cosentino is captured he’s thrown into the dungeon at the bottom of the castle, which no one has ever escaped.
