Booktalk #1

Squish is a little blob of amoeba sporting a baseball cap.  Along with his two friends Pod, a genius amoeba, and Peggy, a peppy paramecium, Squish finds that school can be a real challenge. He worries when “pure evil amoeba” Lynwood, who enjoys munching on paramecium, threatens to consume Peggy.  Squish,  mesmerized by his comic book hero, Super Amoeba, imagines himself saving Peggy from becoming Lynwood’s next snack. Read to find out what happens when naïve Peggy the Paramecium, invites her amoeba friends Squish and Pod plus scary Lynwood to her house to meet her adorable new pet, Fluffy the slime mold.  If you’re a fan of the Babymouse series also written by the same author, you’ve probably already met this funny amoeba named Squish.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Awards Program Booktalks 2012-2013)
