The Ultimate Showdown @ Your Library Round Two, Part Two RESULTS!

Our program day was a huge hit as usual. We learning all about visual art today! Picasso, Matisse, Michelangelo, Disney, ice sculptures, finger painting, macaroni necklaces, and a special guest artist named Austin who taught us all about the art of Pokemon Sprites. We all learned something new today!

And when we announced it was time for today's round of The Ultimate Showdown, a loud cry of YES! was heard from the audience! They were SO EXCITED for Round Two!!!

So here's how it all went down...

There was really no contest and nearly naked Captain Underpants fell to the cutest ever Pikachu!

Even though we tried to argue for his win, Winnie the Pooh's heart and sweetness was not enough to match the popularity of Mr. Indiana Jones.

And even though it was a very close vote, the Pigeon who drives the bus drove it off into the sunset because Alice in Wonderland is moving on to the Sweet Sixteen!

Even though a few LOUD fans were CHANTING for Charlotte the Spider, she was not as favored as Curious George and so the monkey moves on!

Again, the fans were chanting RAMONA! RAMONA! RAMONA! but the vote was called for SpongeBob Squarepants. He is so fashionable.

In a close vote of 14-13, Bella Swan vamped by Jedi Luke Skywalker.

We had a great discussion about the next battle, but Lyra and her alethiometer were championed over Frodo and his ring.

And finally, it was his week. There was no arguement. Harry Potter took down Spock.

SO THERE IT IS! The next round is the Sweet Sixteen!!! We are already down to the wire.

Here's who is left in the Showdown:

Spider Man, Hermione Granger, Dorothy Gale, Bill Nye the Science Guy, Phineas & Ferb, Aslan, Snape, Edward Cullen, Pikachu, Harry Potter, Lyra Belacqua, Indiana Jones, Alice in Wonderland, Bella Swan, SpongeBob Squarepants, and Curious George!

Who will be the Ultimate Champion? You decide!


  1. Sorry...I've been lurking and not commenting. I really have been keeping up with your epic battle reporting! I love your style.

    Hey, do you think some of our parents are having a birds and bees conversation right now as a result of all that Renaissance art?

  2. Nah, I don't think they even remembered. There was so much other great stuff that happened. Finger paint! Showdown! Macaroni!
