Case File 13 #2 Making the Team

 

Case File 13 #2: Making the Team by J Scott Savage

About the Book: With thrills, chills, and laughs on every page, plus a boy-girl rivalry that will leave you in stitches, this is one frighteningly funny book you don’t want to miss. In this second book in a middle grade series that’s “sure to please young readers looking for a thrill” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review), three monster-obsessed friends must take on a mad scientist who is literally stitching together a Frankenstein-esque football team.

Nick, Carter, and Angelo are back to monster business as usual. They’re even filming a monster movie for a school project on Building a Brighter Tomorrow. (There’s a connection there somewhere, they swear.) But when a new private school arrives in town boasting a football team that’s inhumanly good, the boys start to suspect they may have a real monster mystery on their hands. And what’s worse, they may need help from their girl rivals, Angie, Tiffany, and Dana, to get to the bottom of it.

You hold in your hands a most frightening file.

Through extensive research and firsthand accounts, I have compiled everything you need to know about case file 13. In this book, you will find the next grisly adventure of three boys whose monster knowledge led them down a path so dark, so dangerous—

Excuse me, aren’t you forgetting about the three girls who knew way more about monsters?

Get real, Angie. It’s not his fault you girls are so forgettable.

No fighting! You all showed bravery in the face of ghosts, grave robbers, and even mad scientists in this volume alone, and that proves you’re all extraordinary.

It’s just that the boys are more extraordinary.

Nick!

Are we quite finished? Now, let’s see, where was I . . .

You hold in your hands a most frightening file, chronicling the adventures of three awesome boys whose superio monster knowledge made them way cooler than the girls. This is the second volume. Read on if you dare. . . . http://www.harpercollins.com/9780062133311/case-file-13-2-making-the-team

 

 

Case File 13 #3 Evil Twins

 

Case File 13 #3: Evil Twins by J Scott Savage

About the Book: With thrills, chills, and laughs on every page, this gruesomely funny book will leave you seeing double!

In this third book in the acclaimed middle grade series that is “sure to please young readers looking for a thrill” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review), three monster-obsessed friends accidentally unleash an army of evil twins onto their hometown.

Nick, Carter, and Angelo have defeated the Zombie King, taken down a mad scientist, and, toughest of all, even learned to cooperate with their monster-loving girl rivals. But when the three friends head on a camping trip with Nick’s parents, a fateful hike in the woods leads the boys to a creature that can change its shape at will and even mimic the boys’ voices. Carter sneaks the little guy into his backpack and takes him home, and so the trouble begins. And in this frighteningly funny adventure, trouble always comes in twos. . . .

Starring a trio of characters young readers will want for their own best friends, it’s easy to see why School Library Journal raves about this series’ “blend of mystery, realistic fiction, action, and humor will appeal to a wide variety of readers.”

 

Jacket Copy

You hold in your hands a very creepy chronicle.

I have solved countless clues and numerous riddles, all to bring you the answers you seek regarding case number 13. Now, in this file, you will find the next chilling chapter in the adventures of Nick, Carter, and Angelo, three monster-obsessed boys whose trip into the woods turned so ghastly, so foul—

Hold up, Mr. B! We don’t want to scare them away. I thought the camping trip was pretty rad, all in all.

But Nick, aren’t you forgetting about the Sasquatch footprints, the lost homunculus, and—scariest of all—the Evil Twins themselves?

Nick? Who’s Nick? Oh, right, that’s me. . . . I’m not a doppelgänger of Nick at all, I swear.

Uh-oh. Tell you what, “Nick,” you stay right here, and I’ll be right back.

No problem . . .

You hold in your hands a very excellent chronicle, following the adventures of three unsuspecting boys whose trip into the woods turned out just like we planned. This is the third volume. Read on if you dare. . . . http://www.harpercollins.com/9780062133373/case-file-13-3-evil-twins

Book Spotlight: Galazy’s Most Wanted by John Kloepfer


Galaxys

Galaxy’s Most Wanted by John Kloepfer and illustrated by Nick Edwards

Aliens Attack! When science camp buddies Kevin, Warner, Tara, and TJ summon alien life to earth, they quickly find out that not all extraterrestrials come in peace. Can they stop an alien takeover and save the world in time to win the Invention Convention? John Kloepfer, author of the popular Zombie Chasers books, has done it again. Galaxy’s Most Wanted is full of sidesplitting descriptions; a fast-paced, silly plot; a cast of diverse and endearing characters; and a slew of creepy-crawly aliens oozing off the page. With out-of-this-world black-and-white illustrations by Nick Edwards throughout, the first book in this new series is going to blast off! Meet the Characters: Kevin: Science genius. Physics, biology, chemistry, you name it, Kevin can do it. He’s the brains of the operation, leader of the crew. Warner Reed: Kevin’s best friend and resident cool dude. He’s the guy to see if you’ve got a 2 a.m. junk food craving—but you’ll pay top dollar for his top secret stash. Tara Swift: Not only is Tara supersmart and great at building things out of next to nothing, she’s also in an all-girl punk band and the best drummer in the universe. (It’s true—just ask her.) TJ Boyd: Computer problems? He’s your man. TJ’s a regular computer-programming prodigy. He’s not much of a talker, though. Word around the campfire is that he damaged his voice box in a botched robotics experiment.

 

Greetings, Earthlings!

I am Min.

When Kevin Brewer and his science-camp buddies Warner, Tara, and TJ accomplish the impossible—summoning ALIEN LIFE to Earth!—they think it’s going to be all fun and games. And at first, it is. Their new Martian friend, Mim, has all sorts of awesome, otherworldly gadgets, and Kevin and his pals are having a blast.

But Kevin quickly finds out that not all extraterrestrials come in peace. A gang of interstellar predators is on a mission to capture Mim and destroy anyone in its path! Yet Kevin is not about to let his greatest scientific discovery be taken away that easily. Putting their planet-sized brains together, Kevin, Warner, Tara, and TJ must plot a way to stop the alien invasion and kick those intergalactic enemies out of this world! http://www.harpercollins.com/9780062231017/galaxys-most-wanted

 

 

My Review: Greetings Earthlings! Fun book for kids that love to read all about aliens.

The Zombie Chasers

Book Review:Winter’s Coming. A Story of Seasonal Change.


Winter's Coming

Winter’s Coming: A Story of Seasonal Change. By Jan Thornhill and Illustrated by Josee Bisaillon.

Lily, a young snowshoe hare, is surprised to notice the leaves changing color in her forest home. She hears from a passing flock of birds that “Winter’s coming.” Lily doesn’t know who or what winter is, but it must be frightening. Why else would the birds be escaping south? And it must have an enormous appetite. Why else would the squirrel be hiding his food? And why would the caterpillar curl up and freeze as solid as an acorn? As Lily learns the ways in which her forest friends prepare for winter’s arrival, she becomes more and more worried about what she should be doing. Finally, the brown bear points out that Lily has been preparing without even knowing it: her fur is thickening and turning white to help her camouflage in the changing weather. This fascinating story introduces the ways in which different animals adapt to survive winter and is complemented by illustrations in a mix of collage, drawing, and digital montage. https://store.owlkids.com/store/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=514

 

 

Ages: 5-8

Pages: 32

 

 

My Review: Lily is barely 6 months old and has only notice green on the trees. So when the color of the leaves started to change it came as a surprised to her. She notice the animal where busy doing one thing or the other. Why are the birds getting ready to fly south, the squirrels drying mushroom, the turtles burying themselves in the mud at the bottom of the creek and many more.

They all told her that Winter is coming. To Lily, Winter sounds mysterious to her as she knew about danger but she hasn’t heard of Winter. Should she be running away from Winter? Then Lily met a bear who explained what Winter was all about.

This is a great book for lovers of animals. Learn about the animal and their environment Facts from the book. Read about how animals prepare for Winter. The illustrations by Josee Bisailon help to bring the story to life. I highly recommend this book for school libraries.

Jan Thornhill

About the Author: I was born in 1955 in Sudbury, but spent most of my childhood in southern Ontario where, encouraged by my artist mother and engineer/inventor father, I developed a life-long passion for both art and the natural world. I spent a lot of time exploring the fields, woods, ponds, and streams near where I lived, and was an avid collector of things I found. I brought home all kinds of treasures – skulls and fossils, bird feathers and empty nests, insects, snake skins, fallen leaves. Eventually I labeled everything and made a museum in the basement. I thought I’d get rich by charging a 5¢ entry fee…but my mum was the only one who paid! http://www.janthornhill.com/biography.html

Book Review/Giveaway: The Greedy King. Ends Oct 18th


The Greedy King

Aristoddlers Presents: The Greedy King, a Tale of Ancient Greece by Mitchell Biesemeyer, illustrated by Santiago Germano

About the Book: Does money make you happy? The Greedy King is certain it does. The Greedy King has so much treasure, he thinks he must be the happiest man who ever lived. When a wise man tells the Greedy King he is only lucky, events are set in motion that will change the world. Aristoddlers adapts true stories from Greek and Roman history into illustrated stories for children, sharing these ancient lessons with the next generation. This is the story of greedy King Croesus and wise Solon, and what it really means to be happy.

Page: 50

My Review: This story reminds me about Snow White and the Evil Queen. Just like the Evil Queen, the Greedy Kings wanted everyone to know how rich and happy he was. So he invited the wisest man in Greece to see his great life. “Have you ever met a happier man?” asked the greedy king. The wise man said, “I once met a farmer who worked hard every day. And he went on to tell the greedy king how the farmer gave food and money to those who needed it, and he lived a happy life. The Kind was confused and upset. The wise man gave more examples of what others have done and how they were the happiest that ever lived, because their lives were spent to save or help others. And he told the king that he is only lucky. The king was angry and demanded to know why he wasn’t the happiest man who ever lived. Wouldn’t like to know what happened to the Greedy King? Well, you just have to buy a copy to find out.

A lot of us can learn from this book that true happiness comes from doing what is good. Being greedy can make us happy for now, but true happiness comes from helping others.

The Greedy King is based on a story by an ancient Greek historian from the 5th century named Herodotus. His story was based as an account of the wars between Persia and Greece. He wrote his story as a warning to Greeks about the dangers of tyranny. The author retold the story of King Croesus and the wise man Solon. You can read more about this at the last page of the book. Santiago Germano did a wonderful job illustrating this story which help tells the story. I highly recommend this book.

Book and Author Spotlight. Sprindlers by Lauren Oliver


Spindlers

About the Book: Evocative of Alice in Wonderland, this novel from New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver is a bewitching story about the reaches of loyalty and the enduring power of hope.

Looking across the breakfast table one morning, twelve-year-old Liza feels dread wash over her. Although her younger brother, Patrick, appears the same, Liza knows that he is actually quite different. She is certain that the spindlers—evil, spiderlike beings—came during the night and stole his soul. And Liza is also certain that she is the only one who can rescue him.

Armed with little more than her wits and a huge talking rat for a guide, Liza descends into the dark and ominous underground to save Patrick’s soul. Her quest is far from easy: she must brave tree-snakes, the Court of Stones, and shape-shifting scawgs before facing her greatest challenge in the spindlers’ lair, where more than just Patrick’s soul is at stake.

Jacket Cover: One night when Liza went to bed, Patrick was her chubby, stubby, candy-grubbing and pancake-loving younger brother, who irritated and amused her both, and the next morning, when she woke up, he was not. In fact, he was quite, quite different.

When Liza’s brother, Patrick, changes overnight, Liza knows exactly what has happened: The spindlers have gotten to him and stolen his soul.

She knows, too, that she is the only one who can save him.

To rescue Patrick, Liza must go Below, armed with little more than her wits and a broom. There, she uncovers a vast world populated with talking rats, music-loving moles, greedy troglods, and overexcitable nids . . . as well as terrible dangers. But she will face her greatest challenge at the spindlers’ nests, where she encounters the evil queen and must pass a series of deadly tests—or else her soul, too, will remain Below forever.

From New York Times best-selling author Lauren Oliver comes a bewitching story about the reaches of loyalty, the meaning of love, and the enduring power of hope.

My Review: Bible stories for children are interesting to read but this book by Claire Freedman is about teaching your children who to pray a simple prayer.

The contents includes: Let’s Praise God! Our Families and Friends! Special Days! God and Me! Prayers for Others! Good Night God! Health! Sad Times and many more. Each prayer is simple and easy to read and remember.

Children can pray asking God to help them with their school work, help them to listen to the teacher and not to give up when their home work is difficult. And prayers like, thanking God for their daily food and helping those that don’t have enough food to eat. These little prayers are heart felt and does give a child faith that their prayers are been heard by God. I love the illustrations by Jo Parry. There pictures are bright bold and colorful with brings light and life to each prayer.
