I am going historical with The Kingmaker's Daughter, from Philippa Gregory. It's about the War of the Roses, and is pretty favourable to Richard III. My opinion has always been formed by Shakespeare's play, in which he is quite the villain. The book itself has some issues of skipping important parts and a lot more tell than show, but I'm glad I had the chance to think about the War of the Roses from the viewpoint I'd never really considered before.
My son is reading his first Halloween book by himself! He's reading Little Witch's Big Night, but Deborah Hautzig and Marc Brown.
