The wonderful Owls Well blog recently featured the Aldo Zelnick series!  The books “follow ten-year-old Aldo as he records his endearing, everyday adventures in sketchbooks given to him by his grandmother Goosy, filling each one with hilarious illustrations, stories and fancypants vocabulary words.

“These books are simple, fun and great for encouraging reluctant readers like 6 year old J, who still tends to balk at text-heavy chapter books. They would be a great launching point for independent readers who might want to explore the wonderful world of art-journalling or storywriting. I especially enjoy the way that the books try to expand a reader’s vocabulary – Artsy-Fartsy is All About Awesome ‘A’ words, whilst Bogus is Brimming with Brilliant ‘B’ words, and the back of each book sports a glossary that is both witty and easy to understand.”
