Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Judy Moody: Mood Martian by Megan McDonald is the best novel yet. In this tale, I got to watch Judy Moody show a different side to herself than her usual self. In fact, her family started to think she wasn’t really Judy…at all. The change was pleasant and welcoming.

Judy Moody is a young girl who has a wild imagination and a good heart. She wants to be good, but her plans always went wrong. There was always a big oops, somewhere if not everywhere she went.

I was surprised by how much Judy changed and grew up. Her personality is still creative as ever. I laughed a lot. Her and Stink will always be my favorite two characters in this series.

Judy Moody: Mood Martian is about Judy trying not to be her usual Moody self. Readers familiar with the series all know how moody Judy Moody can get at times. Her ways of accomplishing not being moody was interesting! I definitely recommend this book story to all. Judy did make a lot of boo boos as usual, but she somehow ended up at the top. I liked the themes and the new adventure presented. The illustrations were great. They went well with each chapter. Overall, I highly recommend this book to readers everywhere.

Review: Wonky (A Robotics Club Story) by Darcy Pattison

Wonky: A Robotics Club Story

 

 

 

 

 

Synopsis:

“A delightful story of friendship and teamwork.” Dori Hillestad Butler, Theodore Geisel Honor Award for King & Kayla and the Case of the Missing Dog Treats, and Edgar award for The Buddy Files: The Case of the Lost Boy

Howie ambles into robot club hoping to find a friend. But when Lincoln bounds into the room, Howie hides. The strange new bird is too big and fluffy. The teacher, however, puts the unlikely pair together. Will they be able to accept each other’s wonky ideas and become friends?

For STEM classes, this story emphasizes the discussion of form v. function.
The story encourages divergent thinking as Lincoln and Howie design a robot. For kids who are rigid and inflexible, they’ll see the value of considering different options, and accepting those who are different.

Kirkus Reviews says, “. . .offbeat and clever. . .this tale will certainly appeal to kids. . . .”

Rating: 4-stars

Review:

Wonky: A Robotics Club Story by Darcy Pattison is a sweet novel that combines STEM science and friendship in one easy sweep. I liked how the characters Howie and Lincoln had differences but were able to connect with each other.

However, the book was a little bit predictable in that its two main characters were boys. Boys whose ultimate goal was to scare their sisters. It was funny. I could definitely picture boys creating that kind of robot. Robotics is cool. Unfortunately, nothing really about robotics was told her. It just showed two boys becoming friends during a robotics meeting.

Overall, I would give this children’s illustrated book a 5-star rating for the themes discussed. And I would give it a 4-star rating for it not really inserting girls and boys into the central picture. This book would be more suited to boys than girls. I liked the humor that was created with the images. The illustrations went well with the story. In the end, a great story book for kids.

Review:

Titch the Itch by B.C.R. Fegan is a beautifully illustrated book. One that features the story of an Itch. Titch the Itch does his job well. Makes everyone Itch. But his job leaves him feeling lonely.

Review:

Danny Chaucer’s Flying Saucer by Christopher Peter is an engaging middle school novella. The book intrigued me immediately. Two kids get together after being bullied. Together, they find a flying saucer. From there I was hooked into the adventure, sights, and BOB. Christopher Peter combines themes of friendship and bullying into an entertaining tale. The words flowed easily. It flew by fast for me. The characters taught lessons along the way, I dug further into the plot. Danny Chaucer’s Flying Saucer is one sci-fi action read that I highly recommend to kids and teens alike. Great story, believable characters, and well-developed scenes.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Peter and Lisa: A Mental Illness Children’s Story is a beautifully illustrated book that goes along with the story inside perfectly. Charles Katz and Lind Baron Katz both have created a book suited for children that shows what a mental illness is like and how to get help. They also show children that those with a mental illness are normal people too. They they can live a happy life just like those without a mental illness. The story also, shows that the people don’t always know that they have a mental illness. That can cause them an unhappy life. Until someone they know sees it, and helps them get help, they may go untreated and can get worse. However, this tale shows that help is around the corner and that positive things can happen to those dealing with mental illness. Marriage and having a family can be in the future for those with this issues. Both writers showed the realistic outcomes if not treated and treated. I liked that. It gives hope and inspiration to those who are struggling with these issues. Overall, I recommend this children’s book to all readers.

Review:

Oliver and Jumpy stories 49-51 by Werner Stejskal were absolutely amazing. Again, the beautifully illustrated pages drew me into the stories. Every page was filled with action. Adventures waiting for readers to jump into with Oliver the cat and Jumpy the kangaroo. The first short story in this collection was about ice. Oliver ended up teaching Joey how to skate. But then Jumpy landed into trouble once again. Oliver his friend came to his rescue. However, they both needed to be rescued by a whale who chased off a mean eating polar bear. Then, the next story was funny. Oliver doesn’t eat mice. He chases his mouse friend just for exercise. Until one day, the mouse asks Oliver to chase his six kids around instead. Oliver agreed. But boy, did Oliver get a workout. The six mice had Oliver chasing them around everywhere. The last story was another adventure rescue by both Oliver and Jumpy. They both come across a door that led into a new land. This time they meet a large ant, a giant, and have to capture a fire breathing dragon. This collection of children’s stories are well-written and highly engaging. I loved reading these stories.

Review: Golden Maple Tree

 

Synopsis:

At the end of a boring summer in her un-magical hometown, Holly O’Flanigan is eager to return to the parallel world of Magora.

Holly’s nosy neighbor, Ms. Hubbleworth, has been missing for a year, and Holly and her friends, Brian, Rufus, and Amanda, know where she is. A year ago, they left the real world together and entered Magora via a painting Holly’s late grandfather created.

When Holly and her friends head back to Magora to enroll for their second year at Cliffony Academy of the Arts, Holly finds out that her friend Ileana is severely ill. She suffers from a disease that dissolves her blood and turns her back into what she was before—a so-called Unfinished, an incomplete, painted creature that drains the blood of others to become whole.

Holly tries to find a cure, but in vain—Ileana’s illness is progressing. While Holly continues to donate blood to keep Ileana stable and the new school year starts, she meets Ms. Hubbleworth again. Surprisingly, her nosy neighbor has no knowledge of her old life back in the real world and seems fully immersed in her position as a teacher at the art academy.

When Holly learns that the leaves of a mysterious Golden Maple Tree could cure Ileana’s illness, she begins her search for the tree and discovers an ancient monastery where the dangerous blood-sucking Unfinished live.

But Holly’s best friend Rufus is kidnapped and taken to the monastery. With her other friends in tow, Holly enters into a fierce battle against the Unfinished to free Rufus and collect the leaves of the Golden Maple Tree to cure Ileana. In the process, Holly learns the truth behind Ms. Hubbleworth’s memory loss—changing everything Holly thought she knew about Magora.

When Hadley’s parents leave on a cruise and then are reported lost at sea, her perfect world is turned upside down. In a flash she is whisked away to a new life of drudgery at Grimm House where she waits on not one but two persnickety old aunts. As she grudgingly fulfills their commands of cooking, cleaning, and even after-dinner-dancing, she comes to suspect the aunts are really witches who are scheming to take the thing she loves best.
