One more
I think you may have overlooked my comment on your original facebook query as I don't see one of my suggestions here (and I totally see how that could happen as there were so many:). That one is Frank Cotrell Boyce's Cosmic. It is a little under the wire in the US, but it is a fabulous read-aloud. I've been reading it aloud to my 4th graders yearly since it came out. (I'm glad to see the other two I suggested are here. They are recent books that I feel are fabulous read alouds: Jackie Woodson's Each Kindness and Kathi Appelt's The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp.)

Beowulf
Can you tell me the author for the Beowulf: A Modern Retelling? I've done some searching and can't seem to find that exact title.

I'm looking to include with Boys of Blur for a possible unit next year.
