Blog Tour/Book Review: Cragbridge Hall, Book 1: The Inventor’s Secret.
Cragbridge Hall, Book 1: The Inventor’s Secret by Chad Morris
About the Book: Imagine a school in the year 2074 where students don’t read history, but watch it happen around them; where running in gym class isn’t around a track, but up a virtual mountain; and where learning about animals means becoming one through an avatar.
Welcome to Crabridge Hall, the most advanced and prestigious school in the world. Twin siblings Abby and Derick Cragbridge are excited as new students to use their famed grandfather’s inventions that make Cragbridge Hall so incredible. But when their grandfather and parents go missing, the twins begin following a trail of clues left by their grandfather. They must out where their family is, learn who they can trust, and discover what secrets are hidden within Cragbridge Hall.
Abby and Derick soon realize they are caught in a race with a fiece adversary to discover their grandfather’s greatest secret-a dangerous discovery that could alter both history and reality.
My Review: According to the book, Crabridge Hall is a prestigious school where students can view living history watch a ship sail through their classroom, the invention is called the Bridge. This allows the class to watch as history actually happens. A chair used to show literature and unlocks what really goes on inside the human mind, where you can use a devise to find your way around the school grounds and many more. All invented by Oscar Crabridge the grandfather of Abby and Derick who happened to be admitted into this school. While Derick is a genius his twin sister isn’t.
The story is about twins Abby and Derick, the grandchildren of famous inventor Oscar Crabridge. When Oscar Crabridge and the twin’s parents were taken hostage by an old rivalry that needed a mysterious invention that could change the world for better or worse, Abby and Derick must spring into action to find then before its too late. Their only hope is to follow the clues left by their grandfather. And the clues can only be found by those who remember the lessons of history. If you love time travel or mysteries you will love this book.

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.
Books Given in 2011: 315
Books Given in 2012: 380
Books Given in 2013: 330
Books Given in 2014: 257
