Great list of summer reads! Can I suggest another?--The Cottonmouth Club by Lance Marcum. It's the coming of age story of an 11 year old boy in 1960's California, who has a perfect summer of comic books and monster movies all planned out with his best friend. Imagine his horror when he finds out he's actually going to spend the holidays with his mother's family in rural Louisiana! It makes a great read aloud, with both funny and very suspenseful passages.

Thanks, Amy! I've not heard of that one before. Sounds like it would be a great pick for Brian and Ben to read together. We'll look forward to checking it out!
