Love the video clip and the feature of the two books. While this is not my 'staple' fare when it comes to book choices, they do look fun. Thanks for sharing.

You are more than welcome! I love it when I find two books that can go together. I have had so many kiddos ask me for books that are similar to ones that they have already read. Therefore, I jump for joy when I identify read-alikes. Have a great day!! Thanks for stopping by!! :)
