Sisters of Glass by Naomi Cyprus (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Nov 06, 2017 at 9:42pm

Halan is a princess. She lives in a magical kingdom ruled by her powerful father, but she is different. Halan is powerless. Nalah is a pauper. Nalah lives in the land of New Hadar with her beloved father, who is a glass blower. Nalah and her father are different from everyone else in New Hadar. They have powers. When Halan’s father travels through a magical mirror and the mirror smashes to shards, he gets stuck in Nalah’s world. He challenges Nalah to re-create the mirror, but it just turns into a big disaster! I enjoyed this book because it was very well written. I could not put it down because it was full of adventure and emotions.

Goodly and Grave In a Bad Case of Kidnap by Justine Windsor (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Nov 06, 2017 at 9:36pm

An archly funny, classic mystery adventure with a magic twist! Lucy Goodly is the new boot girl at Grave Hall, working for the cold, aloof Lord Grave. The other staff - Vonk the Butler, Mrs Crawley the cook and Violet the scullery maid - all seem friendly but Lucy soon notices that strange things are afoot in her new home - and not just Mrs Crawley's experimental anchovy omelettes. There are moving statues, magical books and Lord Grave has a secret. Meanwhile, all over the country, children are vanishing. Could the mystery of the missing children be linked to the strange goings-on? Lucy is determined to find out...

This book was amazing!! Justine Windsor must have a great imagination! My favourite part was when Lucy escapes Amethyst and finds out what she is. The book has awesome characters including Lucy, Violet and Lord Grave among many others. There were also lots of cool items like the wish book, bottles of tears, endless chicken and more! I give this book 4 1/2 stars.

Mr. Lemoncello's Great Library Race by Chris Grabenstein (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Oct 30, 2017 at 7:15pm

Everyone’s favorite game maker, Mr. Lemoncello, is testing out his new FABULOUS FACT-FINDING FRENZY game! If Kyle can make it through the first round, he and the other lucky finalists will go on a great race—by bicycle, bookmobile, and even Mr. Lemoncello’s corporate banana jet!—to find fascinating facts about famous Americans. The first to bring their facts back to the library will win spectacular prizes! But when a few surprising “facts” surface about Mr. Lemoncello, it might be GO TO JAIL and LOSE A TURN all at once! Could Kyle’s hero be a fraud? It’s winner take all, so Kyle and the other kids will have to dig deep to find out the truth before the GAME is OVER for Mr. Lemoncello and his entire fantastic empire!

Mr. Lemoncello’s Great Library Race is a book with an exciting race throughout. In this book, kids learn about famous people in Mr. Lemoncello’s Fabulous Fact-Finding Frenzy Game.  People who love adventures and racing will surely love this book. This novel had funny characters and funny scenes that I really enjoyed. I really liked the end, and there is a surprize bonus puzzle to solve when you finish the book. You do not need to read the first two books in the Mr. Lemoncello series to like this book.  I think Mr. Lemoncello’s Great Library Race has more excitement than a series with 5 books! This was one of the best books I read this year. This book is almost as good as Harry Potter!

Max Tilt: Fire the Depths by Peter Lerangis (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Friday, Oct 27, 2017 at 7:35pm

Max Tilt never thought being the great-great-great grandson of Jules
Verne would be so hard. It started when he found out his mom had cancer and one night his Dad and Mom had to get urgent treatment and he was left with his cousin Alex. While his parents were gone, Max stumbled across Jules Verne's unpublished story and letters addressed to his parents. One of the letters said "Your family is being kicked out of the house on 34 Spruce street Ohio in 3 weeks." Max and Alex decided to go on the treasure hunt to pay off the family bills. Their journey closely resembled the story described in the Verne's papers and they run into some unexpected troubles. Will Alex and Max find the treasure? Read Max Tilt to find out more about their journey and adventures.
