The Super 64 continues… now the Terrific 32!

super 64 (2)We’ve narrowed it down to 32 books, and the arguments are already bubbling up. The Lightning Thief crushed Anne of Green Gables, as my son and I had expected, but other pair-ups were very close. Peg Kehret’s books are favorites at this school, so Escaping the Giant Wave managed to squeak out a win over Amulet. Garfield came close to matching Harry Potter, but couldn’t hang on in the end.

As a group, they’re such engaged readers that I expect the arguments to get louder as the weeks go on. It will be fun to see their reactions to this week’s vote, and as the pairings get tougher next month.

I left the book bracket at school, so I’ll update the Terrific 32 pairings here:

Escaping the Giant Wave – Belly Up

Hoot – Powerless

Timmy Failure – Hatchet

The Lemonade War – The Watsons Go to Birmingham, 1963

The PS Brothers – I Funny

N.E.R.D.S – Big Nate

The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall – The Lightning Thief

Eight Keys – Sisters

Calvin & Hobbes – Counting by 7s

Bud, Not Buddy – A Girl Named Disaster

The Giver – Harry Potter

Mary Poppins – The Diary of a Wimpy Kid

The One and Only Ivan – Flora and Ulysses

Athlete vs. Mathlete – Matilda

Wonder – Divergent

The Million Dollar Throw — Smile

How would you vote?
