TLA begins in moments but I thought I would take a moment to post about last night's reading. I like this series from Bildner and Long. They did a presentation at IRA last year on a panel where I was also speaking. They are an engaging and talented duo. This series BARNSTORMERS is great for intermediate readers, especially those who love their mysteries with a spot of history and baseball and magic.

Griffin, Ruby, and Graham are in the possession of a special baseball, one highly sought by the mysterious and nefarious character known as The Chancellor. With the ball in their possession, the team with which they travel, The Travelin' Nine, cannot be defeated. However, the Chancellor will do anything to get his hands on this ball. Intrigue, history, fast action, and adventure. What more could one want? Oh, yes, short chapters and short books and quick reads. All here.
