The Hypnotists by Gordon Korman (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Jax Opus appears to be a regular teenager. However, he has one very special power: when people look into his eyes, they unthinkingly follow his orders. Then this talent becomes known to the wrong people and Dr. Elias Mako of the mysterious Sentia Institute offers to coach the boy in the art of hypnosis.

But there is something even more devious at work and Jax is the only person capable of stopping it.

Look deep into the pages of this book... you won't put it down until it is finished, then you'll want to march up to the author and demand a sequel.

Ready to Wear by Chloe Taylor (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

This book is an awesome book because now I want to sew. But I don't think I will, I tried it once and it didn't work so well.

This book has a good story and I loved the cover, especially Zoey's fashion sense. The book's lesson is to just be yourself and it doesn't matter what other people think of what you wear, it just matters if you like it.

This book to me reminds me of the Cupcake Diaries because the Cupcake Diaries got me wanting to form a cupcake club and Sew Zoey got me wanting to sew or make a blog. I think people who like to make arts and crafts, sewing, or computers will like this book. I am so glad that this is only number one and there will be more to come. I can't wait for them to be released!

The Great Dog Disaster by Katie Davies (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Suzanne's Great-Aunt Deidra has left her dog to Suzanne's mom in her will and Suzanne is delighted they are getting a dog again. But when Beatrice the Newfoundland arrives, she is a BIG disappointment. She's slow, and she's old, and she's got serious stomach issues. Suzanne and Anna are determined to turn Beatrice into the dog of their dreams, but can their canine boot camp prevent Suzanne's dad from sending Beatrice away?

I think this is a very good book for kids. I think that kids who like dogs should buy this book to learn what they need to know if their dog has things in its body that could make their dog very ill.

The characters in the story are also very funny. The funniest part of the story is when Beatrice starts to run and pulls Tom out of the flooding river!

The Platypus Police Squad by Jarrett J. Krosoczka (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

"Hmm, should I buy the book The Platypus Police Squad?"
Well, for most of you readers who are wondering just that, I say this book was wonderful. It is about two partners on a police squad called the Platypus Police Squad. The two don't get along very well in the beginning, but working on a case of illegal fish, a missing person, and a very suspicious panda, they have to work together to figure it out.

It had memorable characters, and I could tell why the main character did something or said something. One of my favorite things about this book is how the platypuses don't have guns, they have boomerangs. That was very clever. I think kids 9 to 13 might enjoy this book. I would suggest this book to people who love mysteries and I would rate it an 8 out of 10.

The Apprentices by Maile Meloy (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Two years have passed since Janie Scott last saw Benjamin Burrows, the mysterious apothecary's son who stole her heart. On the other side of the world, Benjamin and his father are treating the sick and wounded in the war-torn jungles of Vietnam. But Benjamin has been experimenting with a new magical formula that allows him to communicate with Janie across the globe. When Benjamin discovers that she's in trouble, he calls on their friend Pip for help. The three friends are thrown into a desperate chase around the world to find one another, while unraveling the mystery of what threatens them all.

The Apprentices by Maile Meloy is a great book! My favourite part about this book is that there is a lot of alchemy and magic! I also like that the characters that are in Maile Meloy's first book The Apothecary are still the main characters in the second book.

One thing that I didn't like about the book was that there were a couple chapters where not much happened.
All in all, The Apprentices by Maile Meloy is a great book!

The Apprentices will be released on June 4.
