As y’all know, I am a H-U-G-E fan of the Children’s and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards. The judging application process has just ended, which means the really fun part is about to begin: nominating books. This week – and for the next few weeks – we’re going to feature CYBILS-nominated books for our Throwback Thursday book reviews. This week it is Brenda Seabrooke’s Wolf Pie, a nominee in the Easy Reader / Short Chapter book category for the 2010 Cybils.

Remember the 3 little pigs? This is the modern version of the story. The wolf starts out being the big bad wolf, but learns to be friends with the pigs, turns vegetarian, goes on vacation with them, and then actually saves them from a hungry pack of migrant wolves. The wolf learns how to change his evil ways and the pigs learn, over time, to trust the wolf.
Reading Tub book review Wolf Pie – September 2011
Why a Throwback Thursday for Book Reviews?
Those of us who blog about books are a community. We read lots of books, we write lots of reviews, and we share those reviews with fellow book lovers and those in search of books for children and teens on our blogs, websites, and via social media.
We write so many reviews that, over time, they get buried by other, newer reviews. BUT! that book we read three years ago will always be new to some reader, somewhere. So why not share that review with a new audience?
Everyone is welcome! Here are the participation guidelines:
- If you reviewed the same book we’re featuring, add your permalink to the original review on the Reading Tub website or in the InLinkz Linkup.
- Want to (re)share a review you posted in September 2010, then add your permalink in the InLinkz Linkup. [No, it doesn’t have to be a book you loved; but it does have to be a review you take a lot of pride in.]
- Add any notes about the review in the comments, please.
The spammers have been having a blast with our Throwback Thursday posts … now its your turn to take back blogging from those nuisances. Add your reviews to our InLinkz linkup above or the comments section below.
