About the Book: Knuckle and Potty are famous loveable characters who star in bestselling children's books. And their next adventure will take them to Happy World! But Knuckle and Potty are tired of being lovable-they want to be fierce! And they don't want to go to Happy World. So they plan a trip to the Outer-world to meet their author so they can rewrite their storyline.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says:  First off, a big thank you to Unshelved, who wrote a comic about this book! Otherwise I'm not sure I would have discovered it.

For tweens who like their comedies with a bit of a zany plot, Knuckle and Potty is perfect. There is tons of humor in this short graphic novel that will leave tweens cracking up. Plus, there are plenty of inside jokes that savvy readers will catch-the Chicken and the Beret, Knuckle and Potty's "celebrity writer". It's a quick read (I read it on my 15 minute break at work) and it would be perfect for younger tweens who are looking for a good graphic novel.

Knuckle and Potty are some of my favorite new graphic novel characters and I really hope we have more adventures to come from them!!

When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
