About the Book: The Jupiter Pirates. Hunt for the Hydra by Jason Fry

Treasure Island meets Battlestar Galactica in book one of the swashbuckling sci-fi adventure series SLJ called “space opera in the classic style” in a starred review, from New York Times bestselling author Jason Fry.

The relationship between Tycho Hashoone, his twin sister, Yana, and their older brother, Carlo, isn’t your average sibling rivalry. They might be crew members together aboard the Shadow Comet, but only one of them can be the next ship captain. So when the Hashoones find themselves in the midst of a dangerous conspiracy—one that will pit them against space pirates, Earth diplomats, and even treachery from within the family—each sibling is desperate to prove his or her worth. The only trouble is, if they don’t work together, none of them may make it out alive.

Perfect for fans of fantasy adventures like Ranger’s Apprentice and such space-age epics as Star Wars, The Jupiter Pirates: Hunt for the Hydra is a wholly original saga about a galaxy on the brink of war and one unforgettable family caught in the cross fire.

Don’t miss the action-packed sequel, Curse of the Iris.

 

Jacket Cover

When you’re a privateer, running a starship is a family business. For Tycho Hashoone, his twin sister, Yana, and their older brother, Carlo, the family business is far from easy.

For starters, they have to make a living however they can, all while dodging pirates and Earth’s dreaded warships. Then they have to please the Jovian Union, an alliance of moons that provides the Hashoones their letter of marque against Earth’s merchant fleet. But hardest of all, the siblings have to impress their mother, Captain Diocletia Hashoone, who keeps a log of how they perform on every test, simulation, and mission aboard their family starship, the Shadow Comet. Because while the three siblings might be crewers together, only one of them will be chosen as the Comet‘s next captain.

Talk about sibling rivalry!

Part high-seas adventure, part space-age epic, the Jupiter Pirates is an unforgettable saga about a solar system on the brink of war and one family caught in the middle of it. http://www.harpercollins.com/9780062230201/the-jupiter-pirates-hunt-for-the-hydra

About the Book: Curse of the IRIS

Treasure Island meets Battlestar Galactica in Book 2 of the swashbuckling sci-fi adventure series SLJ called “space opera in the classic style” in a starred review, from New York Times bestselling author Jason Fry.

It’s been a tough year for Tycho Hashoone and his family. Hostilities between the Jovian Union and Earth have reached a boiling point. The privateering business hasn’t exactly been booming. And the ongoing contest for the captain’s seat of the Shadow Comet has the three Hashoone siblings perpetually on edge. Then the Hashoones intercept a ship–one with a long-dead crew, its final mission a warning to all who seek their fortunes in space. The Hashoones don’t have time for ill omens; they need a payday. Following clues from the mysterious ship, they embark on a hunt for the long-lost treasure of the Iris–a treasure that Tycho’s own great-grandfather Johannes had a hand in hiding. But in his quest for the Iris cache, Tycho is going to dig up much more than he bargained for. Because like old pirate treasure, family secrets never stay buried for long.

Filled with action, intrigue, and one unforgettable family, The Jupiter Pirates: Curse of the Iris takes readers across the depths of space and brings the Jupiter Pirates saga to new heights. http://www.harpercollins.com/9780062230232/the-jupiter-pirates-2-curse-of-the-iris

Book Spotlight: The Buccaneer’s Code


23866208

 

The Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates. The Buccaneers’ Code by Caroline Carlson

 

About the Book: Humor, magic, and adventure abound in the third—and final—book of the Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates series.

Hilary Westfield is now a freelance pirate. After trying to prove herself to the VNHLP, she realized many members of the League weren’t all that honorable—not even very nearly. With Captain Blacktooth in cahoots with the Mutineers, the kingdom of Augusta and all its magic are at risk.

What the League needs is a very honorable pirate to be their new president. So Hilary—with the help of her friends, including the always spirited gargoyle—challenges Blacktooth to a High Seas battle. Winner takes all. Loser, at best, will be exiled.

Caroline Carlson has created a world where magic is currency, pirates are more charming than alarming, and a girl can choose a life as a pirate instead of a life in petticoats. And she once again delivers a story of high stakes, High Seas, and High Society in the hilarious and charming conclusion to the Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates series. http://www.harpercollins.com/9780062194398/the-buccaneers-code

Book/Author Spotlight: Mars Evacuees


23229111

Mars Evacuees #1 by Sophia McDougall

About the Book: The fact that someone had decided I’d be safer on Mars, where you could still only sort of breathe the air and sort of not get sunburned to death, was a sign that the war with the aliens was not going fantastically well. I was worried that I was about to be told that my mother’s spacefighter had been shot down, so that when I found out that I was being evacuated to Mars, I was pretty calm.

And, despite everything that happened to me and my friends afterward, I’d do it all again. Because until you have been pursued by terrifying aliens, been taught math by a laser-shooting robot goldfish, and tried to save the galaxy, I don’t think you can say you’ve really lived.

If the same thing happens to you, here’s my advice: always carry duct tape.  http://www.harpercollins.com/9780062293992/mars-evacuees

Book/Author Spotlight: Nuts To You.


19500357

Nut to You by Lynne Rae Perkins

 

About the Book: Jed, TsTs, and Chai are the very best of friends. So when Jed is snatched up by a hawk and carried away to another realm, TsTs and Chai resolve to go after him. Mysteriously, the hawk has dropped him. They saw it. Jed could be alive. New communities are discovered, new friends made, huge danger is encountered (both man-made and of the fox and bobcat variety) and the mysteries of squirrel culture are revealed. It turns out that squirrels are steadfast and fun-loving. It turns out they adore peanut butter. It turns out they love games and really good stories. And nuts.

Newbery Medalist Lynne Rae Perkins loves peanut butter, too. And one day, while she was sitting on a bench enjoying the sunshine and a peanut butter sandwich, a squirrel asked for a smidgen of peanut butter in exchange for a story. Was it Jed? Well, readers will have to figure that out. Nuts to You is wholly original, funny, lively, and thought-provoking. It is a deeply satisfying piece of storytelling about the power of stories to save the world; about the power of friendship and the importance of community. Illustrated in black-and-white on every page by the author. Includes an introduction, epilogue, and footnotes throughout. http://www.harpercollins.com/9780060092757/nuts-to-you

About the Book: Food or friend? Through fun animal facts and charming illustrations, “Not A Nugget” shows children a different way to view animals and their food. With a special foreword by Gene Baur, founder of Farm Sanctuary, this book is an educational resource for parents and teachers to introduce children to plant-based living. http://veegmama.com/not-a-nugget/

  • Paperback: 38 pages
  • Publisher: VeegMama (August 10, 2015)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0986106011
  • ISBN-13: 978-0986106019
  • Product Dimensions: 8.5 x 0.1 x 8.5 inches
  • Cost: $9.95 on amazon

 

 

My Review: The author has explained in her book that animals are our friends, not food. She goes on to show with the illustrations by Jack Veda showing how chickens like to play games, cows making best friends by walking together, that pigs are super smart by playing video games with a joystick, fish communicating like friends and have memories like humans and many more. She gave fun facts and listed the alternatives like instead of eating hot dog, eat a veggie wrap, instead of bacon, eat tempeh bacon, instead of sushi roll, eat cucumber and avocado roll.

I understand the vegetarian lifestyle that the author wants to convey to the parents and children, but I can not truly agree that animal are not food.

25934090

When My Grammy Forgets, I Remember: A Child’s Perspective on Dementia by Toby Haberkorn

About the Book: With the increasing numbers of people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and other dementia conditions, more families and children will experience the sadness and challenges of this disease in a beloved relative or friend. When My Grammy Forgets, I Remember: A Child’s Perspective on Dementia explores the difficult reality of dementia and the enduring strength of a nurturing relationship between a granddaughter and her beloved Grammy.

 

  • Paperback: 38 pages
  • Publisher: Baypointe Publishers (March 21, 2015)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0991623606
  • ISBN-13: 978-0991623600
  • Cost: $12.95 @amazon

 

 

My Review: Dementia is a decline in memory and other thinking skills that could be severe enough to reduce a person’s ability to perform everyday activities. The tend to forget names, places, among other things.

Grandmothers love spending time with their grand children. But when they suffer from dementia they tend to forget things, like people’s name, taking their medicine, misplacing things like car keys, even remembering to hug their love ones.

Children wouldn’t understand that their beloved grandmother’s memories are fading.With this book they will understand what dementia means and how they can help their love ones if they ever suffer from this disease.

The author tells the story of a child’s relationship with her grandmother.  Her Grandmother was always there to pick up her up from school, she loves reading to her granddaughter, helps her at her lemonade stand, she brings back dolls for her granddaughter every time she travels to famous places. Her granddaughter places nuts, chocolates and candies on the table for her grandmother and her friends who loves playing bridge every Wednesdays. And she loves the hugs her grandmother gives her. But due to dementia the role has changed as the child now hugs and guide her grandmother. She takes her out for a walk since she no longer drives, she reads to her while grandma turn the pages.

My friend’s mom suffers from Alzheimer. When I visit her she keeps asking me “who are you?” And I will say, ” Mom, its Ella”. She will say, “Oh, how are you?”. 10 minutes later she will ask me the same question.

This book is not only about the relationship between a grandmother and her grandchild, but a child’s perspective on Dementia. I will recommend this book in school libraries. The illustrations by Heather Varkarotas helps bring the story to life with bright and bold colors.

 

FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

 

 

A1g2F86M2cL__UX250_

About the Author: Growing up in Cleveland, Ohio Toby Haberkorn was a voracious reader. Later, as a young mother, she delighted in creating stories for her children. Toby currently lives in Texas, where she is working on her next book.

Toby has written two children’s books. With the increasing numbers of people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and other dementia conditions, more families and children will experience the sadness and challenges of this disease in a beloved relative or friend.

Parents assume that children do not notice when something is wrong with a beloved family member or friend suffering from dementia. They may be unsure how to explain this disease or the deterioration. The reality is that children are very observant and worry when a grandparent’s behavior changes or seems to have disappeared from their lives.

When My Grammy Forgets, I Remember: A Child’s Perspective on Dementia seeks to address those concerns by sensitively exploring the changing relationship between a granddaughter and her adored Grammy who has dementia. The story is inspired by the Toby’s own family, which was forced to confront the pain of a no-upside, ultimately progressive disease in their beloved mother and grandmother.

Dementia is an adult topic but this book is written in a simple, straightforward manner that children can understand. When My Grammy Forgets, I Remember: A Child’s Perspective on Dementia stimulates discussion between parents and children about compassion and this debilitating disease. Toby’s hope is to help children and parents find the peace they deserve at bedtime. http://tobyhaberkorn.com/

My Review: If you love posting and sharing your baby’s pictures and videos to Social Media then this book is for you. All day long, phones are out, trying to capture his famous pout. As his parents post pictures of him to social media, these pictures gets love hearts from auntie, mom and many others. There are picture of him reading, with Grams having breakfast, posing with relatives and friends, rolling over, crying, sleeping, giggling and making scrunchy faces, all for the camera, click, click, tag and post to social media, making fun memories for all to adore by clicking like and leaving comments.

I enjoyed that the story is told from the baby’s point of view. He gives us an insight to his day. The baby wakes up to a recording and every thing he does is posted by his parents to social media. What a great way to share instantly with families and friends. This is better than printing pictures and taking them to the post office to post. Now every move or even baby’s first word can be posted to social media for friends and family to see. The illustrations are not only bright and colorful, but it helps bring the story to life.
