The Search for Wondla is the first in a new trilogy from , the illustrator of The Spiderwick Chronicles. It is always difficult to follow up a huge success like Spiderwick, but I think he has done it! This story is so much fun, with loads of action and danger.

She has spent all of her twelve years living underground with Muthr, her guardian robot.

I liked this story. I did. I just didn't really believe the main plot line.
Marcus Jordan is the new kid in town, and wanna-be quarterback of the high school football team. It's just not reasonable that it would take a smart kid like Marcus so long to figure out that his anonymous 50 year old football buddy and coach has something seriously wrong with him.Categories: Reviews

It's the first day of first grade, and it's all hands on deck for a young pirate and his crew. How much trouble can they get into? What will they do at recess? And, most important, what treasure awaits them at school? (From jacket flap)
Arrrg, this be a fine book, indeed! It is basically a back-to-school book, but definitely one that stands out amongst the rest. First of all, the watercolour illustrations are very well done and suit the book and its subject perfectly; I especially liked the make-believe pirates cavorting across every page. Secondly, and most importantly, it is written entirely in pirate-speak. Shiver me timbers, that be exciting! There is even a small glossary in the back of the book for you non-pirate speakers. A Pirate's Guide to the First Grade would be a fantastic book to read out loud, and a wonderful addition to any book collection.Categories: Reviews
