two for tweens

The twins Kasey and Kelly are back in DOUBLE TROUBLE 2: APRIL FOOL'S SURPRISE by Abby Klein with illustrations by John McKinley (Scholastic 2012). As April Fool's Day approaches, the girls plan the tricks they will play on their parents and their friends at school. Short chapters with plenty of humor make this an ideal read for readers who are just feeling confident with chapter books. <124>

Another second book in a series is THE LEGEND OF DIAMOND LIL, A JJ TULLY MYSTERY by Doreen Cronin with illustrations by Kevin Cornell (Balzer and Bray 2012). JJ is a former rescue dog who lives on a farm with his owner. He is in charge of taking care of the chickens, of preventing predators from harming his charges. Into the neighborhood comes Diamond Lil, the most lustrous and beautiful dog JJ has ever seen. However, there is something a little strange about Lil. There is also something "off" in the henhouse. Can JJ solve the mystery? Will Lil be a help or a hindrance? <125>
