Boris on the Move
By Andrew Joyner
From the library
The story: Boris lives with his mom and dad in a bus that used to travel around the world. Now it stays safely parked in their yard. One day, the bus starts with a jolt and Boris and his family are off again. He discovers that you don't need to travel to Africa or China to go on an amazing adventure.
Mama opines: This would be an excellent choice for a first chapter book for your little guy or girl. The chapters are short and there are plentiful illustrations. The characters talk by bubble, which will be familiar to children who love comic books. I know a book is a winner when David is begging me to get the rest of the series as soon as he finishes the first book!
Thoughts from David: Boris is a monster who longs for adventure. He is very excited when the bus he lives in starts to move! Then they start driving and then they slow down, turn off the road, and stop. Boris is very creative. He also hopes that one day he can go on another adventure.
Favorite part: When Boris finds a kitten.
