Kid Review – A Series of Unfortunate Events

The Bad Beginning

 

After the sudden death of their parents, the three Baudelaire children must depend on each other and their wits when it turns out that the distant relative who is appointed their guardian is determined to use any means necessary to get their fortune.

“If you have not read anything about the Baudelaire orphans, then before you read even one more sentence, you should know this: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are kindhearted and quick-witted, but their lives are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched and will most likely fill you with deep despair.” ~from the Author

When a story is gloomy and mysterious it is often called “gothic.” These stories often take place in castles or country estates and usually, children are left to cope with the darkness and mystery themselves. If you liked the gothic Series of Unfortunate Events, try these:

Kid Review: Dog Tags #3 Prisoners of War

Newly arrived on the Western front and assigned as a medic, Rivera finds himself in the middle of the Battle of the Bulge, cut off behind enemy lines–and his only companion is a Nazi trained Doberman pinscher.

Kid Review:

“I like this book” ~David

I know that isn’t much to go on, but David liked it, and I’d never noticed this book series before. The summary sounds really good and The Battle of the Bulge is interesting learn about – let alone imagining actually being there.

Kid Review: The Magic Cake Shop

Kid Review: The Magic Cake Shop

The Magic Cake Shop

When ten-year-old Emma Burblee’s beautiful but snobbish parents banish her to Nummington for the summer with her loathsome Uncle Simon, she is befriended by the seemingly magical town baker, Mr. Crackle, who soon becomes a target of Simon and his associate.

I loved this book because it was about baking. Even though it was fiction, it had a wonderful storyline to it. I hope that people can read it all the time and it gets put in my school library!! Girls and boys, request and read this book. Yes, it was that good!!
