November is a great month for Author and Illustrator Birthdays:

November is also Apple Month so here are two fun selections dealing with that tasty treat:
  • Applesauce Season by Eden Ross Lipson - A book about Grandma and the rest of the family making much fun can that be? You'll find a delightful surprise in the pages of this fun, read-aloud picture book that comes complete with a yummy recipe.
  • One Red Apple by Harriet Ziefert traces the life-cycle of an apple from the freshly-picked fruit through the discarded seed and back again to a full-grown tree. It's the circle of life paralleled in the life of the narrator.

Here are the answers to Friday's Famous Firsts:

1. There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it." The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C. S. Lewis.
2. When the doorbell rings at three in the morning, it's never good news." Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz.
