Timmy Failure: We Meet Again by Stephan Pastis (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Oct 20, 2014 at 4:47pm

His name is Failure. Timmy Failure. And his detective agency is on the verge of global domination. Global riches. Global fame. And yet the gods keep throwing him curveballs: for starters, academic probation. The coveted Miracle Report is the key to everything, including a good grade. It’s dirty business. It’s best you know nothing. But one thing is for sure: Timmy Failure will be triumphant again!

For me, a ten-year old girl in grade 5, this book was not very good. But I do have an eight-year old brother who loves Timmy Failure and he has read one before. This would be good for younger readers, I think.

Robots Rule: The Junkyard Bot by C J Richards (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Oct 18, 2014 at 9:39am

Wouldn't it be cool if the place you lived in was manned by worker robots? Well, that is what's happening in this book. Eleven-year old George Gearing lives in the high-tech town of Terabyte Heights, and has a robot named Jackbot as his best friend. But one day, Jackbot gets hit by a car and breaks. Thankfully George is able to fix Jackbot with a few parts from Tinker Tech, the robotic company that makes and designs robots. After a garbage truck programmed to kill George and his new friend Anne almost does, it's clear that there is a villain in town who may put an end to Tinker Tech. Can George, Anne and Jackbot together stop the villain before it is too late?

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes action without violence, and enjoys a few good jokes.

The Yeti Files #1: Meet the Bigfeet by Kevin Sherry (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Oct 16, 2014 at 4:20pm

The Yeti has a ginormous home and the book shows a map of it.  He has a cousin that he grew up with who is kind of like a brother to him. When the Yeti gets his picture taken, he runs away.  A couple of years later his family has a reunion to try to find him.

I thought this book was good.  I liked the maps in the book.  I would recommend this book to younger readers, aged 7-10.
