boys rule

Three Turtles and Their Pet Librarian


We are Freaky, Fegan and Squirt, three extremely intelligent turtles currently supervising a public library in southern NM. For the good of mankind (who, frankly, could do with a little help now and then), we have graciously agreed to post our observations on literature and library-related products. We may also pass on the odd review by some of our more intelligent human friends. We keep a pet librarian, Miss Ami, on hand to type our words of wisdom, feed us, and generally cater to our needs.



I'm a middle school librarian who serves grades 5 - 8. I blog about middle grade and young adult fiction (all genres), non-fiction and audio. I also review the occasional picture book because I believe one is never too old for picture books and many picture books can be creatively used in the middle school setting. Occasionally, I write about personal events or literature news. I have been blogging since December of 2009.
