Is a young demigod any match for the boy who lived? Will Judy Moody overwhelm the Wimpy Kid? If the Wild Things win, will they celebrate with a wild rumpus?
These are just some of the questions leading into the first round of Mentor Public Library‘s Battle of the Books.
Eight children classics will duke it out tournament-style, and it’s up to you (and your kids) to vote for your favorites.
The first round match-ups are:
1. Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief vs. Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone
2. Diary of a Wimpy Kid vs. Judy Moody
3. Madeline vs. Where the Wild Things Are
4. I Want My Hat Back vs. Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive
You can cast your votes for your favorite books with ballots located at the Children’s Desk at our Main Branch. The first round will take place now through September 28.
On September 29, the winners will move forward; and a new round of voting will begin and run until Oct. 6.
The championship round will run from Oct. 6 through 12, after which the winner will be crowned.
So who are you voting? And what children’s classic do you wish was in the brackets?
