booktalk tuesday

Ruby Lu, Brave and True by Lenore Look

IndieBound Description:

Most days the best thing about being Ruby is everything. Like when she's the star of her own backyard magic show. Or when she gives a talk at the school safety assembly on the benefits of reflective tape. Or when she rides the No. 3 bus all the way to Chinatown to visit GungGung and PohPoh.

And then there are the days when it's very hard to be Ruby. Like when her mom suggests Chinese school on Saturdays. Or when her little brother, Oscar, spills all of Ruby's best magician secrets. Or when her parents don't think she's old enough to drive!

Join Ruby Lu on her first adventure and discover your own best things about her!

My Thoughts: I love the Ruby Lu books! I admit I am a tad jealous of Lenore Look and her ability to write these books, as well as the Alvin Ho books. When I met her a long time ago, I was hoping some of her brilliance would rub off...

Funny timing, because over the weekend one of the Ruby Lu books caught our eyes at the library and it is now waiting to be read. Glad to hear it has your "stamp of approval". I really like these booktalk Tuesday posts. Please keep them coming!

Hey Grace, Thanks so much for plugging my Ruby and Alvin books! I was hoping for the same thing when I met you! Lol! Keep writing and I hope our paths cross again soon!
