Lauren's Favorite
The Tale of Despereaux
The Tale of Despereaux is a book that has four parts. The first part is about a small mouse, Despereaux, who is different from all the other mice in his family when he is born. He lives in a castle, and is secretly in love with the princess. The second part is about a rat named Roscuro. Roscuro lives in the dark basement and doesn't like light. The third part tells about Miggery Sow who is a serving girl. She comes to be a maid in the castle but dreams of becoming a princess. In the last secton all these characters come together and become friends in one or another.
I thought this book was GREAT because it was in so many parts in the beginning and then it came together at the end. I also thought it was good because, at times, the author spoke directly to the reader to explain what was going on. I recommend this book to people who like stories about animals with a happy ending.

Linda Humphreys
Sign Language Interpreter's Handbook
This is not a HOW TO DO SIGN LANGUAGE book. It is a HOW TO BECOME A SIGN LANGUAGE PROFESSIONAL AS A CAREER BOOK. This is not a HOW TO DO SIGN LANGUAGE book. It is a HOW TO BECOME A SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETER AS A CAREER book. THE PROFESSIONAL SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETER'S HANDBOOK is the ³missing link² between Interpreter Training Programs (ITPs) and the real world of sign language interpreting. In these pages, Linda Humphreys bridges "the gap" between academic theories and the day-to-day reality of working as a professional interpreter. Linda is a great person and has devoted much of her life over the past 30 years working with the deaf community. This book is a wonderful career resource book for those interested in finding an amazing and rewarding career. It is finding its way into middle schools, high schools, vocational schools and colleges as a career resource guide.

An editor of books for classroom use, Mrs. Trumbore lives in New Jersey with her husband and two children.
The Genie in the Book is a chapter book fantasy for readers aged 8-11. It tells the story of Will Parrish, whose dismal-looking summer visit at his grandmother's house is saved when he accidentally summons a genie trapped in the pages of an old copy of The Arabian Nights. Homer, the book genie, is ready to grant Will's heart's truest wish. The only problem is, Will can't decide what that wish is! Fortunately, unitl Will can make up his mind, Homer is perfectly willing to grant any wish that Will desires--as long as the wishes involve something Homer has read about. Will, his sister Maddy, and his cousin Jerome embark on a series of literary-flavored adventures in what turns out to be the best summer of Will's life.
