Book Spotlight and Giveaway: Mattie Spyglass and the 8 Magic Stone. Ends March 31st
Book Description: For Mattie who was eleven and just a frizzy red-haired fifth grader, magic wasn’t even a remote possibility. Not in the basement of Sears in Hackensack, New Jersey. But October 10, 1968, would end very differently than it had begun. A mysterious Spyglass would choose Mattie as its mistress and hurl her friends Eddie and Geeta and old Mr. Herman Biddle across the treacherous eight precious stones pursued by the evil Uri Gneezy.
Mr. Biddle’s mind was rapidly turning the events. Mattie had thrown the Spyglass and it had incinerated. It was done. He had seen it send off the death sparks, hadn’t he? “Mr. Biddle…” Mattie said, her voice tight with fear. She held up her hand. Mr. Biddle’s kind face reverberated in shock. It was the Spyglass firmly in Mattie’s hand, glowing a pleased and self-satisfied glow. The eyes from within looked at Mattie. It had found its Mistress; no one could keep them apart. Eddie and Geeta knew something was wrong. Mattie was in danger. They felt it.
“Give me my Spyglass!” bellowed an old man with a snake-like head who had suddenly appeared and seemed to be slithering towards them. What Mattie, Geeta and Eddie couldn’t have told you was what their souls registered in a cold grasp to their hearts. This was evil. Evil in its elixir. Evil so pure that goodness had no chance against it.
Mr. Biddle suddenly thrust his palm up and thundered, “Uri Gneezy. It has begun. Again.” Biddle flicked his wrist and he, Mattie, Geeta and Eddie vaporized into a darkness known as the Space-Between-Time. “Mattie,” Mr. Biddle whispered, “you must know good from evil, for you have become the Mistress of the Spyglass.” Mattie wanted to cry, this was so important. Why had the Spyglass chosen her?

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
