Book Spotlight: Galazy’s Most Wanted by John Kloepfer
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.
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 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.
