Congratulations to these enthusiastic young critics who shared their reading recommendations with us in March. Each wins a $25 gift certificate from Crow Bookshop in Burlington. We loved reading about all the entrants' literary adventures and have included some excerpts below.
The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis
"My favorite part was when Deza found her sick father at the end. They get back together as a family."
— Recommended by Hiba Ali, 10 of South Burlington
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
"I like the part when the full moon rises and Professor Lupin turns into a mad werewolf. I imagine it's scary to be next to a mad killing monster!"
— Recommended by Mateo Doris, 9 of Middlesex
Ramona's World by Beverly Cleary
"I liked the part when Ramona saw a girl all alone and became friends with her."
— Recommended by Marissa Johnson, 8 of Vergennes
Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer L. Holm
"My favorite part was when Turtle said to Beans, 'At least I am not named after something that makes you have gas.'"
— Recommended by Firdaus Muhammad, 10 of Essex
