In My Mailbox #54

Welcome to In My Mailbox, a weekly meme where bloggers explore the contents of their mailboxes in an attempt to spread the word about new and upcoming titles.  Head on over to The Story Siren to see the roundup and get the lowdown on what awesome books bloggers are excited about this week!

I got a bunch of Cybils review books in the mail, but I'm going to do a big post on those later, so here is the very eclectic mix of non-Cybils books I got in the mail this week (also pictured are my cat Howie's feet):

Animal Pop! by National Geographic (October 2010).  This is a very cool book with five life-size animal pop-outs and information about the animals.  It includes spreads on tigers, dolphins, wolves, pandas, and sea turtles.  The photos are, of course, amazing.  

First Step 2 Forever by Justin Bieber (HarperCollins, October 2010).  Um, I guess now I will be able to find out if he really is a girl.  (Seriously, the kids at my library... OMG they're gonna go crazy for this one.) 

The Adventures of Ook and Gluk: Kung-Fu Cavemen from the Future by Dav Pilkey (Scholastic, August 2010).  I rarely accept graphic novels for review, but this one's been getting such good word-of-mouth, I had to see what all the fuss was about.  Keep your eyes peeled (ew) because I'll be hosting a fantastic giveaway from Scholastic in a couple weeks!!! 

(By the by, I would also accept a review copy of Jennifer L. Holm and Matt Holm's new project - Squish: Super Amoeba, in case anyone at Random House is reading...;)

So, that's my mailbox this week... Did you get anything exciting?  Anyone have a more eclectic mailbox than me?  (Seriously, I challenge you...!)
