Do you love chocolate and coconut? Then try these ice creams! Yum yum!

4. I saw INTO THE WOODS at the movies this week! I loved it – it was funny and clever and the songs were really amazing. I thought the cast (Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep & Chris Pine) were all totally tops! Have you seen this fun fairytale flick yet?

Hello Book Lovers! Looking for something new to read? We’ve got just the thing for you – our latest BOOK OF THE MONTH!

This month’s rad read is Nightmares by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller!

For more info, go to: http://www.randomhouse.com/kids/nightmares/index.html

What is this book about? Nightmares can be pretty scary, but the good thing about them is that you can wake up from them, right? When Charlie Laird’s dad marries a lady who Charlie is pretty sure is a witch and they move into her creepy purple mansion, Charlie’s bad dreams start crossing over into reality. Eeek! Now it’s up to Charlie and his friends to stop the nightmares from taking over their town. This is the first book of a new trilogy!

Who should read this book? If you love a spooky story or a great imaginative tale, this is a read for you! It also has some pretty cool pictures too.

Tell me about the authors! Yep, this is the same Jason Segel who stars in The Muppets flicks! He was inspired by his own nightmares as a kid, Roald Dahl books and flicks like Lanyrinth and Goonies. Jason originally wrote the story as a script years ago and then teamed up with Kirsten Miller to turn it into a book. Kirsten is the author of the Kiki Strike and The Eternal Ones books!
