Video Wednesday: Cirque du Freak
When I found out that Jake T. Austin, the 13-year-old star of Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place, would be visiting Scholastic, my first question was "What is his favorite book?" Turns out it's the Cirque du Freak series by Darren Shan, those creepy gross horror books full of the disgusting details that boys love to read about. Motivate the boys to read with Jake's video booktalk for Book 1 in the series, A Living Nightmare.
