Marching with Aunt Susan by Claire Rudolf Murphy
Jingle Bells: How the Holiday Classic Came to Be by John Harris
(courtesy of Peachtree Publishers)
The first title was a surprise but it certainly looks like it will recapture a historical event with new eyes. The second was a request and I'm so glad I was granted a copy because really....haven'y YOU ever wondered where some of our favorite carols came from? I have. ^_^ Both books coming from Peachtree Publishers this fall...be sure to check out their website for more information....
Saltwater Taffy by Eric Delabarre

Funny thing happened with this one. I saw it on the store shelf one day and thought ...wow, I love the cover! Looks adventureous and interesting...gotta use it in a 'Roving Reader' post!...so I did. The author happened to catch wind of it and he's been on my Twitter "author list" every since. When offerred the chance to review and share the title with you fair readers, can you guess my reply? ^_^ Reviewing in the coming months, but don't let that stop you from exploring it in the mean time! Check out the official website or the author's Twitter feed for more....
