Bookcover: The 9/11 Report: A Graphic AdaptationHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation by Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colón


Recommended by: Joseph, Nonfiction Librarian
You've never read history like this: the 9/11 Commission's final report on the 2001 terrorist attacks, abridged and illustrated in comic book format- though there's nothing funny here. The serious, nonfiction storytelling combined with vivid graphics make for a gripping and unforgettable experience.

Bookcover: Press HereHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: Press Here by Hervé Tullet

Recommended by: Debbie, Associate Librarian
This interactive picture book is brilliant in its simplicity. It starts with a simple yellow dot in the middle of a blank page and the instructions "press here." When you turn the page, interesting things have happened to the dot.

Staff Reading Pick

Bookcover: The Emerald AtlasHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens
Recommended by: Becky, Children's Librarian
Three children have been raised in a series of orphanages since being abandoned by their parents, and finally end up in a mysterious mansion where they discover an old book which allows them to travel through time, catapulting them into an adventure filled with mystery, mayhem, and magic.  When I started reading this, my hopes weren't too high - reviewers had said it reminded them of many other fantasy novels including "The Golden Compass," "Harry Potter," "The Hobbit," and the "Narnia" books, and I was afraid it would be derivative and cliched.  It's not.  This is a completely original fantasy novel with an incredible adventure story, interesting characters, and writing that makes me feel like I'm watching a movie.  Moments of horror and humor are blended seamlessly into the mix.  Although it's aimed at middle-school-age readers, I highly recommended it for fantasy-novel fans of all ages.
