First Look at Peeta and Gale



What do you think everyone? I think they look pretty good-although I think Gale should be a bit more built. And Peeta's such a cutie!:)

  1. I think the acting will have to really show us what they're like, but I agree with the FYA girls--not how I picture Peeta and Gale at all! :(

  2. I like Peeta, but I'm still not sure about Gale. I don't know...I guess we'll see!

  4. I am on Team Gale... but this cover would make me lean toward Team Peeta... Gale is super hot in my mind... dirty, sweaty, muscle-y...this cover doesn't reflect that! : )

  5. i love who they picked for peeta, but being team gale, i think he is all wrong for the most part, but that's the best picture i've seen of him. i'm not getting my hopes up though.

  6. Not really how I pictured them either....and they look so OLD! :/ I mean, I know they cast older actors but they're not that old in the books.

  7. I started reading The Hunger Games after I found out who the actors were going to be, so I totally had these guys in my mind the whole time I was reading the series. Which worked out perfectly! What's his face is perfect as Peeta. To me he's Peeta already so that I can't even remember the actor's name! lol

  8. I'm so excited to find others who are team Gale! My sister and some others I know who have read the book are team Peeta, and there's just no getting through to them. This isn't how I pictured either of them, really, so up front its a tad disappointing, but hopefully their acting will make up for it :)

  9. I feel like there is a bit of role reversal here. Gale should be all beef-cakey while Peeta should be the one who is a bit smaller.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
