Ollie Gnome and Celia Pixie are best friends … with a twist. They are both elves! But one day, Santa makes a giant announcement that will transform the North Pole forever! He decides that instead of giving the role of Santa to his oldest son, he is going to let any kid in the North Pole have the chance to be the next Santa. Let the Santa trials begin! Twelve different kids are trying to win, including Celia and Ollie. There are ten different trials and lots of drama too! Who will win?

I do not recommend this book for kids younger than ten or eleven.

The Explorer by Katherine Rundell (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Sep 07, 2017 at 5:12pm

In The Explorer, a plane crashes in the middle of the Amazon jungle. Four children: Fred, Max, Lila and Con are stranded and trying to survive. But when Fred finds a map to a lost city, they gain hope that they might actually survive the Amazon Jungle and get back home.

The Explorer was a fantastic book. It was very exciting and is a great survival book. It was fun reading as the four characters ate some yucky things. You have to try The Explorer!

The Great Shelby Holmes Meets Her Match by Elizabeth Eulberg (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Tuesday, Sep 05, 2017 at 6:00pm

Shelby Holmes is an awesome detective and is very smart. She can tell things about people by just observing people and how they act, what they're wearing, and other things like that. When there is a new teacher in Shelby's and her friend John's school, Shelby observes that he is acting suspiciously. Shelby and John find out that he has been getting messages from someone that tell him to fail Shelby in his class! And also his watch that is very precious to him has been stolen. Shelby knows the person that sent the messages and she thinks it's weird of that person to right notes like that. Shelby and John investigate the mystery. Will they find out who stole the watch? And will they find out who sent the letters? Find out by reading The Great Shelby Holmes Meets Her Match!

In this book I liked how Shelby was really determined to get the watch back and how she put her self in danger to save John. I also liked how Shelby and John worked together to figure out the mystery. Another thing I liked was Shelby's plan to get the watch even though it wasn't the right one. It was also really hard to predict what would happen next in the book. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Ghost Attack by David Lubar (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Sunday, Sep 03, 2017 at 1:01pm

When Alex and his cousin Sarah are visiting their grandparents, Alex gets terrible red, itchy hives. Yikes! He's allergic to a ghost! Even worse, the ghost won't leave him alone - he wants Alex and Sarah's help. Can they solve the ghost's mystery and get rid of Alex's awful rash before it ruins everything?

Ghost Attack was a fantastic read, and I loved it! I especially loved how some unexpected things took place. At first I thought the book wouldn't be exciting because of the cover and the length of the book. However after I read it I thought of the saying "never judge a book by it's cover." From my point of view it was amazing!! I really liked how David Lubar mixed the genres together it was like a potion, a veil full of adventure, a cup of mystery, and a drop of scariness.
