If You Like Fantastic Mr. Fox ...

This semester, my students are sharing book reviews in a different format, linking one book they thought many people in the class might have read and another that would appeal to a reader of the first book. (Please note that my third graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for third graders.)

This "If you like ... read this next ..." format was inspired by the We Need Diverse Books summer reading series. They used the format to encourage people to find and read diverse books, so all of their "read this next" choices highlight great, diverse book choices. You can find their posts here on their Tumblr page.

If You Like Fantastic Mr. Fox ...

By: Jamie

If you like the book Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl, then you should read Fortunatel,y the Milk by Neal Gaiman.

They both are funny, they have many twists and turns, and they both have talking animals.

I love both of the books, but if you asked me which book I liked better, It would be Fortunately the Milk, because it has a balloon that is a time machine. I mean who does not like a book with a time machine? But I like the pictures in Fantastic Mr. Fox.
