Kid Review – Pee Wee’s Tale

Kid Review – Pee Wee’s Tale

Pee Wee's Tale

When his owner’s parents let him go in Central Park, a young guinea pig learns to survive in the natural world with the help of a “park-wise” squirrel while trying to find his way back home.

D.R. says:

Peewee’s Tale is a great book about a guinea pig named Peewee that gets given to a little boy for his birthday by his uncle, which his parents dislike greatly. When the boy goes on a sleepover at his friend’s house, his parents let the guinea pig run away. Read Peewee’s Tale to find out if Peewee finds his owner or if he’s on his own.

Kid Review: The Second Siege

Kid Review: The Second Siege

The Second Siege

Twelve-year-old Max and his allies risk much as they seek to acquire the Book of Origins, an artifact of unimaginable power, in hopes of halting the ancient evil that is bringing the world to its knees. Series: The Tapestry Author: Henry H. Neff

Here’s what Samantha has to say about The Second Siege:

This book is amazing! I absolutely loved reading it. At dinner I got yelled at for reading at the table, I couldn’t put that thing down! Henry H. Neff is an awesome author and if you liked the Harry Potter series then you will find these books highly appealing. But BEWARE Henry has only written two of these and is in the process of writing the third. He left the story a cliff hanger and you won’t wanna miss the first two.

And here’s more from Samantha about The Hound of Roman:

The Tapestry series are great! This book was fabulous! So, sit back as thrilling main characters take you on an adventure you’ll never forget! The sequel to this book is The Second Siege. Don’t miss this thrilling novel and check it out at your local library!

The Two Princesses of Bammare Review by Mattea

The Two Princesses of Bammare Review by Mattea

The Two Princesses of Bamarre

With her adventurous sister, Meryl, suffering from the Gray death, meek and timid Princess Addie sets out to find a cure. Author: Gail Carson Levine

This book was a very good mix of fantasy and adventure. The main plot is about Addie,a princess,who always relied on her sister Meryl to provide protection from spiders and other things she was scared of. This all changes when Meryl falls victim to the Gray Death, a plague that has no known cure. With the help of her friend Rhys, a sorceror in training, Addie sets out on a quest on which she gets captured by a dragon, fooled by a specter, battles an ogre and defeats gryphons. The end is so surprising, it was a real page-turner! -by Mattea

Thanks Mattea for the great review.  I haven’t read that one yet but will add it to my list.

If you like reading about Addie, try these other princess heroine stories by Gail Carson Levine. Perhaps you have heard of Ella Enchanted, it was made into a movie starring Anne Hathaway (the actress who played Mia in The Princess Diaries). The book is better!

Kid Review – Charlotte’s Web

Kid Review – Charlotte’s Web

Charlotte's Web

A review came in yesterday from Claire. She says:

Even though this is a book for kids younger than me, I still liked it. The characters are interesting and seem just like people. Charlotte is one of the best characters I’ve ever read about!

I love Charlotte too, but I think my favorite character is Templeton the rat. It’s Templeton, afterall, that finds words for Charlotte to use in the web. He’s self absorbed, obsesses about food and only helps out when it’s in his best intersets to do so…but he’s also funny, which I always like in a character. What do you think?
