The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett - All time favorite book #.....eh, I lost track...#4? A story constructed almost completely of lies.
The new Murder, Mischief, and Mayhem book club is reading "The Maltese Falcon" by Dashiell Hammett. Discussion will be held on February 17 at 7pm at the Elkridge Branch.
'The Maltese Falcon' ~ Dashiell Hammett ~ This may be considered the greatest hardboiled detective novel ever published in this country. Yes, still. Immensely influential, immensely entertaining, and excellently written, it is both a rollicking example of the genre and transcendent of the same.
John Huston's The Maltese Falcon, 3rd version from the 1930 detective novel by Dashiell Hammett, originally serialized in the magazine Black Mask.

Picturebook Study: Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
The Almost Librarian (now at Cozy Up and Read) talks about story extensions as a way to enhance the literacy component of reading. One of my favorite extensions that has developed a life of its own is doing simple theater with kids based on kids books. With the librarian (or mom or teacher or dad) as narrator and the kids as the actors, children's books are brought to life in an immediate way that is fun, satisfying and enshrines the books in the players' hearts. At the same time, the kids learn basic stage craft and are empowered as actors on a stage. The books we've chosen to present are all simple and have few lines but allow the kids to play parts. We've put on Chicka-Chicka-Boom-Boom; Where the Wild Things Are; Wise Monkey Tale; Anansi and the Moss Covered Rock; The Very Hungry Caterpillar as well as other plays over the years based on picture books. We read the book with the kids, then talk about what is happening: how the characters feel; what they might look like, and how the kids can play the part. We go over basic stage directions (how to face the audience; learning to use their faces to show emotions; staying quiet if they are off-stage; etc); rehearse a few times and off we go. When I first started doing these "Preschool Players" programs, we would have the kids make costumes and have three weeks of rehearsals. Over the years we have streamlined and condensed. The costumes were actually more of a distraction for the kids so we don't use much. Kids can come as they are and become the characters. Scenery can be as simple as cut-outs pasted on the wall or crepe paper hung to simulate vines - or often, nothing at all. We can now have practice, put on the play and throw a cast party all in an hour. There is always an improv element to the process and kids and parents (and grandparents and friends who make up the audience) love to see their kids as "stars". And in a very deep and satisfying way we extend the book into these children's lives. Break a leg!
Here's a article that will get you thinking. Many books considered masterpieces today, received brutal reviews when they first came out. The list in this article mainly has novels, but you will find a few children's books. One being a book that is now a classic example of the best in illustrated picture books...Where the Wild Things Are. Publisher's Weekly, 1963 “The plan and technique of the illustrations are superb. … But they may well prove frightening, accompanied as they are by a pointless and confusing story.” — Publisher’s Weekly, 1963 One year later... In 1964, the American Library Association awarded Mr. Sendak the Caldecott Medal, considered the Pulitzer Prize of children’s book illustration, for Where the Wild Things Are. "In simple, incantatory language, the book told the story of Max, a naughty boy who rages at his mother and is sent to his room without supper. A pocket Odysseus, Max promptly sets sail...There, Max leads the creatures in a frenzied rumpus before sailing home, anger spent, to find his supper waiting." —The New York Times. nearly 50 years later... “Each word has been carefully chosen and the simplicity of the language is quite deceptive.” — School Library Journal #1 Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak (1963) "Arguably the single greatest picture book ever created." – Hotspur Closser — Top 100 Picture Books #1: Where the Wild Things Are and 19 million copies, and counting, later... "A signed first edition of "Where the Wild Things Are," the classic children's book by late author Maurice Sendak, has fetched an eyebrow-raising $25,000 on online book retailer abebooks.com, thus making it one of the most expensive children’s books sold in recent memory." — New York Daily News "Abe Books spokesman... Richard Davies told the Daily News that for "Where the Wild Things Are" in particular, it was rare for these books to go for so much because a lot of the 1960s editions were mass published. To date, 19 million copies of the Caldecott Medal-winning book have been sold." — CBS News June 1, 2012

Island of the Blue Dolphins
Elementary School, Childhood Book, 5Th Grade, Favorite Book, Kids Book, Children S Book
I remember picking this off of a book list in elementary school, and after I'd read it I felt so thankful it was on that list.
For students entering 5th grade: Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell. As a solitary survivor on a rocky island off the California coast, a young Indian girl spends eighteen years surviving through her enormous courage and selfreliance.
In the Pacific, there is an island that looks like a big fish sunning itself in the sea. Around it blue dolphins swim, otters play, and sea birds abound. Karana is the Indian girl who lived alone for years on the Island of the Blue Dolphins. Hers is not only an unusual adventure of survival, but also a tale of natural beauty and personal discovery. I read this book in 5th grade.
Island of the Blue Dolphins - I remember reading this in elementary school and then watching the moving. I loved it!
Island of the Blue Dolphins - LOVED (!!) this book as a kid. I was super into survivalism and stuff. I am trying to remember all the books I loved in elementary school so I can get them for Killian when he's old enough.
Island of the Blue Dolphins (Island of the Blue Dolphins, #1) probably my favorite book when I was younger!

Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery. My absolute favorite book series as a child. They're catagorized as children's books today, but Montgomery intended them to be for all ages.
Anne of Green Gables, by L.M. Montgomery. Everyone's favorite redhead, the spunky Anne Shirley, begins her adventures at Green Gables, a farm outside Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. When the freckled girl realizes that the elderly Cuthberts wanted to adopt a boy instead, she begins to try to win them and, consequently, the reader, over. 320 pages.
Anne of Green Gables / Ana de las Tejas Verdes (1908). Esta obra cuenta la vida de Anne Shirley, una niña huérfana que gracias a su carácter imaginativo y despierto logra encandilar a todos los habitantes de Avonlea, el pequeño pueblo pesquero ficticio en la Isla del Príncipe Eduardo (Canadá) donde se desarrolla la historia a principios del siglo XX.
Anne of Green Gables This is arguably my all-time favorite book. It is one of those books that makes you feel so many different emotions over the course of the story. I love it:)!
L.M. Montgomery | Anne of Green Gables (1908) | Green Gables #1 | As soon as Anne Shirley arrived at the snug, white farmhouse called Green Gables, she knew she wanted to stay forever... but would the Cuthberts send her back to the orphanage? Anne knows she's not what they expected -- a skinny girl with decidedly red hair and a temper to match. If only she could convince them to let her stay, she'd try very hard not to keep rushing headlong into scrapes.
Anne of Green Gables, the book that every young girl (and woman!) should read. <3

Angels and Demons - Dan Brown Not one of my favorite books but if you like Dan Brown it worth reading.
Angels & Demons (Dan Brown) - the best Dan Brown novel. If you've only read The DaVinci Code you are missing out.
Angels and Demons is my favorite Dan Brown book. Also have read, The Da Vinci Code and The Lost Symbol. I feel that Dan Brown is an author who you just have to experience at some point along your reading journey.
Angels & Demons--Dan Brown. Okay, 5/5 stars. Seriously, this was a GREAT book. For anyone into murder, history, mystery, logic... This is for you. I can honestly say it had a lot of twists and turns that I didn't see coming. An intelligently written novel, my first Dan Brown book. Do yourself a favor and pick this up and read it

BUY Love You Forever [Paperback] #childrensbook #childbook #bedtimestories
This is one of my childhood books. My favorite book!!!
There are two children’s books that make me cry every time. The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein and Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. It never fails: I get halfway through and I’m sobbing – not just a few silent tears, but a voice-quavering, choking sob that’s embarrassing in public. Which I was when I read Love You Forever to Sec at preschool drop-off yesterday. In case you’ve never read the book, it starts with a new mom putting her baby to sleep -- she rocks him in her arms and sings: “I love you forever I like you for always As long as you’re living My baby, you’ll be.” It’s not Langston Hughes or anything. In fact, it’s pretty corny the first time you read it. But on the next page when the mom sings the same song to her baby, who’s now a rascal of a toddler, it gets a little less corny. And when she sings it to her bubble-gum-chomping school-age kid on the next page, its not at all corny, and reaching the point of being sweet and touching. When she sings the song to her teenager – that’s when I start to tear up. But it’s only when the son becomes a man, and moves to his own house across town, and she takes a bus in her nightgown in the middle of the night to sneak into his room and sing him the song, that I start sobbing. This could be me. I could see this happening. The thought of my baby boy – who, as tall as my shoulders now, isn’t such a baby – moving to his own house, well that just annihilates me. As I read this page, I am assailed by guilt at having felt annoyed when he wakes too early in the morning or bugs me for ten different kinds of snacks, or makes me watch him play video games. I have him now, nearly all the time. When he’s not in school, he is almost always a few steps away, telling me his amazing observations and corny jokes and listening to me talk about shit that I like which most other kids would be bored to tears by. One day, I’ll be just his mother, not his go-to person for just about everything. But though he’ll feel differently about me when he’s grown, I’m willing to bet I’ll feel the same way I do now, the same way I did when he was born and stretched his spindly fingers towards my chin in his first gesture of life of earth – that love and adoration for the little tiny human I ushered into the world. And I wouldn’t be surprised if I do scale his apartment building and creep into his bedroom and sing him the same lullaby I did when he kept me up all night as an infant. I thought, for sure, the fact that I was reading the picture book in Sec’s classroom would curtail my customary waterworks, but no, they came anyway, and I felt like a maniac, wiping away tears in the book corner, while the other kids played with Flubber and Sec asked me why I was sad. “I’m not sad, honey,” I replied, “I’m crying for joy.” Which wasn’t precisely true, but a decent approximation of me anticipating my empty nest syndrome 20 years down the line.
