Joy Fleishhacker blogging at School Library Journal lets readers know in her article Watch and Read:  One Cool Cat-Puss In Boots that a spin-off prequel to Shrek is hitting the silver screen on October 28, Puss in Boots, The Cat, The Boots, The Legend.  Loads more information can be found at the official web site and enjoy the other books as tie-ins.

On October 12 the National Book Award finalists in Young People's Literature were announced.  They are My Name Is Not Easy, Inside Out and Back Again, Flesh & Blood So Cheap: The Triangle Fire and Its Legacy, Shine and Okay for NowBefore the day was over another title was added, for the first time ever, due to a communication error.  It is Chime.
