Two Mr. and Mrs. Green Adventures

Camping: A Mr. and Mrs. Green Adventure. Keith Baker. Green Light Readers: Level 2. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 2002/2012. 24 pages. 

It was Saturday morning. It was sunny, and it was hot. "Let's go camping," said Mrs. Green. Mr. Green had never been camping. He was excited. Life with Mrs. Green was full of adventure.

I really, really enjoyed this Mr. and Mrs. Green adventure. The two are preparing for a camping trip. They have a long, long list of things that they "need" to take. Both are excited--very excited to have an adventure. But as the adventure gets started, Mr. Green shows some signs of uneasiness. He doesn't want to camp too far away from home, it seems. Mrs. Green has just the thing!

Cookies: A Mr. and Mrs. Green Adventure. Keith Baker. Green Light Readers: Level 2. 2002/2012. 24 pages.

Mr. Green woke up from his nap. He smelled cookies, freshly baked cookies. He followed his nose. (He had a big nose--it was easy to follow.)

I just loved, loved, loved Keith Baker's Cookies starring Mr. and Mrs. Green. One day when Mrs. Green is out shopping, Mr. Green discovers a note and some cookies. The note reads, "These are terri-ble! Do not eat." The cookies look good. The cookies smell good. And Mrs. Green always, always makes delicious cookies, so why are these cookies so terri-ble. He decides to eat them one by one by one by one to see if he can find out why. The cookies ARE great. He LOVES the cookies--they're absolutely perfect. Mrs. Green arrives at home to explain the mix-up! He only read half the note!!!

This is a super-fun book that I just loved and adored!

These two Mr. and Mrs. Green early readers were published in early August 2012. Two more early reader adventures will be published in October 2012! The Talent Show: A Mr. and Mrs. Green Adventure and Fishing: A Mr. and Mrs. Green Adventure.

Read Mr. and Mrs. Green
  • If you enjoy funny early readers (like Frog & Toad and Elephant and Piggie)
  • If you like alligators!
  • If you like cookies OR camping

I'm always happy to hear from you! To help fight spam, comment moderation has been set up for posts older than two days. Feel free to ask me questions or ask for recommendations!

Review Policy

I am interested in reviewing books and audio books. This blog focuses on books written for middle grade on up (essentially 10 to a 110). I review middle grade fiction and young adult fiction (aka tween and teen).

I also review adult books.

I read in a variety of genres including realistic fiction, historical fiction, mystery, romance, science fiction, fantasy, literary fiction, and chick lit. (I've read one western to date.)

I read a few poetry books, a few short story collections, a few graphic novels, a few nonfiction books.

I am especially fond of:

  • Regency romances (including Austen prequels/sequels)
  • Historical fiction set in the Tudor dynasty
  • Historical fiction and nonfiction set during World War II
  • Jewish fiction/nonfiction
  • dystopias
  • apocalyptic fiction
  • science fiction (especially if it involves time travel and alternate realities)
  • fantasy
  • multicultural books and international books

I am not a fan of:

  • sports books
  • horse books
  • dog books if the dog dies (same goes with most pets actually except maybe fish)
  • westerns (if it's a pioneer story with women and children, then maybe)
  • extremely violent books with blood, blood, and more blood

I am more interested in strong characters, well-written, fleshed-out, human characters. Plot is secondary to me in a way. I have to care about the characters in order to care about the plot. That being said, compelling storytelling is something that I love. I love to become absorbed in what I'm reading.

If you're interested in sending me a review copy of your book, I'm happy to hear from you. Email me at laney_po AT yahoo DOT com.

You should know several things before you contact me:

1) I do not guarantee a review of your book. I am just agreeing to consider it for review.
2) I give all books at least fifty pages.
3) I am not promising anyone (author or publisher) a positive review in exchange for a review copy. That's not how I work.
4) In all of my reviews I strive for honesty. My reviews are my opinions--so yes, they are subjective--you should know my blog will feature both negative and positive reviews.
5) I do not guarantee that I will get to your book immediately. I've got so many books I'm trying to read and review, I can't promise to get to any one book in a given time frame.
6) Emailing me every other week to see if I've read your book won't help me get to it any faster. Though if you want to email me to check and see if it arrived safely, then that's fine!

Authors, publishers. I am interested in interviewing authors and participating in blog tours. (All I ask is that I receive a review copy of the author's latest book beforehand so the interview will be productive. If the book is part of a series, I'd like to review the whole series.) Contact me if you're interested.
