Have you ever seen a fake work of art? Well, twelve year old Art has, in fact he makes them. Or at least he thinks he does. Art was found in a museum without any memories and the doctors diagnosed him with amnesia. Meanwhile, a group of men are trying to kidnap Art because they want something called the spider. Only Art knows what and where it is, but he forgot along with all his other memories. The only clues to his past life are a plastic card, a key, and a journal filled with exact diagrams of some famous paintings. Art soon gets adopted by a family with one daughter his age named Camille, and he finds himself running around the city with Camille, trying to stay alive. Art seems to know alot about paintings, and when he and Camille suspect that Art's key leads to a room filled with poisons and replicas of priceless paintings. They begin to suspect something strange is going on. Now Art has to recover the spider, keep away from these men who are trying to kidnap him, and find out more about his past. Will he succeed?

Timothy Hart has an imagination box where he can make anything he imagines. It's an invention made by Professor G. Eisenstone. There is one rule for the imagination box, he must not take it out of his room in the hotel where he lives. But, Timothy takes it out of his room anyway and when he does, strange people start following him and they steal his imagination box. Tim and his friend Dee think that someone called the mind surfer is controlling the people. They think that it's Harriert, the director of TRAD, a top-secret scientific instiution. Is Harriet actually behind all this and if she isn't, who is? Find out by reading The Imagination Box!

In this book I liked how Thomas and Dee worked together to find out who was the mind surfer and also liked how they never gave up. Also, I would love to have an imagination box, I could make anything I want! I give this book a 5 out of 5 starts.

Tumble & Blue by Cassie Beasley (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Aug 03, 2017 at 5:07pm

Blue Mortgomery can’t win. At anything. From races to scrabble, Blue ALWAYS loses. He’s been cursed since he was born, due to a mistake made many generations ago, by Walcott Mortgomery. Walcott decided to make a dangerous journey for power, and he made it, but split the future in half. Some of the Mortgomery's have gifts, and some are cursed. Meanwhile, Tumble Wilson is fated. She, no matter how hard she tries, will always be the damsel in distress. When Tumble and Blue meet, they become friends, and try to break their curses. But how do you defeat fate? Soon, they’ll find out…

I would give this book 8/10 stars. It’s confusing at times, but really good and well written. I would recommend this book to people who like fantasy.
