Clueless McGee is a very funny book.

McGee is a boy trying to solve a school mac and cheese crisis, but at the same time he has a lot of other problems bothering him. He's always using ninja moves to fix all of his problems. He gets all of his ninja moves from a game called Ninja Wars. He's always putting up posters to help him find the mac and cheese bandit.

I would rate this book 10 out of 10

Between Heaven and Earth by Eric Walters (a review from our Two Thumbs Up review panel)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Aug 18, 2012 at 5:18pm

Teenage DJ is the best at everything including sports and school. When his grandfather dies unexpectedly he asks in his will for DJ to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and throw his ashes off the summit. DJ thinks it will be a piece of cake. It's not! He has to go on an epic adventure facing the bitter cold, mountain sickness and bad food. This book is one in a series of seven but you don't have to read them in any particular order. I enjoyed this book so much I can't wait to read the rest of the series!

Between Heaven and Earth will be released October 10th, along with the rest of the series.

The Brilliant World of Tom Gates by L. Pichon (a review from our Two Thumbs Up review panel)

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Aug 16, 2012 at 2:24pm

Tom Gates likes drawing, dogs, and the band Dude3, so when Dude3 comes to town, Tom just HAS to get tickets - but it's harder than you'd think. The Brilliant World of Tom Gates by L. Pichon is a funny book that I think is more for boys, but some girls might like it too. It is a bit like Diary of a Wimpy Kid because both of the main characters think they are the best person in the world and the book is filled with illustrations. It also has the same kind of humour. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars because it started off slow but by page 11, I was hooked. Keep reading, it gets better!

The Brilliant World of Tom Gates will be released on September 1st.

This was a great book! It was full of great tips on making the best comics. So, You Want to Be a Comic Book Artist? tells you about many different types of paper, pencils, brushes, ink and much more. Sometimes an artist's comic strip comes up in between the chapters. I would rate this book 10 out of 10 because I never got bored reading it and there are amazing tips like when to use India ink, how to turn a mistake into a positive thing and how to make a great story.

The Sinister Sweetness Of Splendid Academy by Nikki Loftin (a review from our Two Thumbs Up review panel)

by McNally Robinson - Wednesday, Aug 08, 2012 at 12:03pm

The Sinister Sweetness Of Splendid Academy is one of the greatest page-turners of all time. Lorelei's old school just happens to burn down, and then all of a sudden there's a new one in its place! It all starts when Lorelei and her brother Bryan get attracted to the most miraculous playground in history. Then on their first day, Lorelei meets a boy named Andrew and together they agree the gourmet meals, early excuses from class and the unlimited amount of candy served in gold bowls are all too good to be true! It turns out that what seems like heaven could really be the most dangerous place in town, with three witches right in the middle. This book was very good and suspenseful. I give it a 9 out of 10.

The Sinister Sweetness Of Splendid Academy will be released on August 21st.
