A Crack in the Sea by H.M Bouwman (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Feb 18, 2017 at 4:49pm

No one comes to the Second World on purpose. The doorway between worlds opens only when least expected. The Raft King is desperate to change that by finding the doorway that will finally take him and the people of Raftworld back home. To do it, he needs Pip, a young boy with an incredible gift—he can speak to fish; and the Raft King is not above kidnapping to get what he wants. Pip’s sister Kinchen, though, is determined to rescue her brother and foil the Raft King’s plans.

I really enjoyed this book. It had great characters, creativity, and amazingly well made connections with the real world and the fictional "second world". The story teaches many lessons and has a plot that is a bit scattered at first but all comes toghether nicely in the end. This is the first book by H.M Bouwman that I have read and I think that this is one of my favorites now. If I was an octopus I would give it all my 8 thumbs up (if octopi had thumbs), but I am only a human and must resort to only two thumbs. I give this book 5 stars.

The Wizard's Dog by Eric Kahn Gale (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Jan 28, 2017 at 4:45pm

Meet Nosewise. He’s spunky. He’s curious. And he’s a dog who can’t understand why his pack mates Merlin and Morgana spend all day practicing magic tricks. If it’s a trick they want, he’s the dog to ask! He can already Sit!, Stay!, and Roll Over! But there’s no way Nosewise is Stay!ing when his master and best friend, Merlin, is kidnapped. There’s nothing Nosewise won’t do to get Merlin back, even if it means facing the strange Fae people and their magic-eating worms, or tangling with the mysterious Sword in the Stone. But it may take more than sniffing out a spell to do it!

This book was a perfectly pieced together story of a wizard and his pup.  It was so descriptive I could almost smell it. It was written so that it was clear what was going on the whole time. What this dog wouldn’t do for it’s owner! It was a memorably miraculous journey that all ages could enjoy. A heart warming story that made me smile! A truly magical book!
