I’m excited to share my review of Hey A.J., It’s Saturday! by Martellus Bennett. Make sure to check out all the blog stops for fun giveaways and more information about this creative book!
A.J. Is an imaginative girl who finds another world that is strangely right downstairs in her kitchen. So strange there’s already a feast, breakfast being served by creatures and beasts.
Oh! What is going on in this kitchen of hers? Pancakes! Waffles! Scrambled eggs! And a Jamaican Giraffe?
Breakfast will never be the same. Ever!
The illustrations in the book are lively and fun! A.J. has quite an imagination when it comes to breakfast time. I think students will love this book! They will be able to relate to A.J.’s love of animals, breakfast food and most of all Saturdays! I think students will want to write their own imaginative stories about what animals can do on a Saturday.
About the Author Martellus Bennett:
Martellus aka The Black Unicorn is a BIG dreamer. He lives in a magical house with his wife Siggi and daughter Jett where everything comes to life when it gets dark or there’s food on the table ( which is pretty much all the time). He’s usually a bit overwhelmed by all of the creatures bouncing around knocking things over in his head and in his house, but that’s nothing a creative ninja can’t handle. Marty received his PhD in awesomeness from the highly prestigious Orange Dinosaur University where his focus was coloring outside of the lines and making stuff with his creative and funny bones. The A.J series is inspired by his daughter Austyn Jett (A.J.) and their adventures together.
Oh yea, he’s a Pro Bowl Tight End for your favorite NFL team.
