Ruby and Olivia by Rachel Hawkins (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Oct 09, 2017 at 12:49pm

The book Ruby and Olivia by Rachel Hawkins is about two girls that don't get along and are completely different. Ruby is bold, while Olivia is shy and nice. When they both get sent to camp, a camp for bad kids, and they have to team up and solve the mystery of the Oaks House.

I think this is an okay book, but I feel the author could use a little less unnecessary detail. For example, "Ruby ate the gooey cheesey pizza". We don't want to hear about the pizza, we want to hear the actual conversation. Another thing is that it goes from a realistic storyline, to a crazy unbelievable one. This book is a good story if you want to have a little bit of a haunted house story.

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Oct 07, 2017 at 10:10am

Odo and Eleanor are catching eels when they come across something shiny stuck in the water. They pull it out and are surprised to discover a sword with unusual pattern on it. They are even more surprised when it starts talking. The sword then knights Odo, who does not want to be a knight. Eleanor on the other hand, has always wanted to be a knight. Her mother was a knight and Eleanor wants to follow her footsteps. She has always wanted a sword and in her free time she sharpens sticks to practice fencing with. They decide (actually the sword tells them) to go on an adventure to save the humans from an attack by dragons. Just your average day to day task. Sure it is dangerous and they will likely die. But, if a sword says it's okay then it must be okay, right? Read Have Sword, Will Travel to find out!

Scooby Doo and the Legend of the Gator Man by Sutton Neely (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Oct 02, 2017 at 3:58pm

Scooby-Doo and Mystery Inc. gang visit an archeological dig, but the camp is deserted, including Professor Cosmo Dinkley. The professor's journal reports a series of frightening encounters with something called the Gator Man, and the gang is convinced that the creature has kidnapped the crew. Has the legend of the Gator Man come true, or is it all a big crock? Action-packed text and comics-style art combine in this Scooby-Doo mystery!

I chose to do a review about the book Scooby Doo and the Legend of the Gator Man. The cover page caught my attention because it has an alligator wearing clothes which I think it looks funny and Scooby is standing beside the alligator looking scared. I don't have just one favourite character but the entire Mystery Inc crew is because I love to solve mysteries. I recommend this book to kids who love mysteries and hate alligators. The star rating I give to this book is a 5 for the reason being I love comics, dogs, and mysteries!
