Weekly Nibble: January 24, 2020

We started our third annual Battle of the Books last week, and I wanted to share our new bracket with you today! The books are always selected by the children, and it’s so interesting to see which titles are the same from year to year and which new ones appear.

Here’s how the first round shakes out:
1. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire vs. Amulet (series) (As of this writing, Amulet has been eliminated. The kids were really divided on whether or not Harry Potter should be in the bracket at all because it has won the last two years. But enough wanted to keep it, so we did.)
2. Wonder vs. Because of Winn-Dixie
3. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Wrecking Ball vs. Ramona the Brave
4. Bad Guys (series) vs. Dog Man (series)
5. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory vs. A Wrinkle in Time
6. Baby-Sitters’ Club (series) vs. Dork Diaries (series)
7. Fablehaven: Grip of the Shadow Plague vs. A Series of Unfortunate Events (series)
8. The Beast Within vs. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
