Two Naomis by Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich and Audrey Vernick (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Tuesday, Oct 04, 2016 at 12:18pm

This is a very good book. Naomi Marie and Naomi Edith are two girls with the same first name. Naomi Marie lives with her mother and Naomi Edith lives with her father. Naomi Marie is separated from her father by a couple of blocks, but Naomi Edith is a whole country apart from her mother! When the two girls’ parents start to date, sparks fly!

The only negative thing about this book is that there are lots of typos and at times, the book is really confusing. I do not recommend this book for people who get sad easily. All in all, this book is interesting because of all the drama in the families!

Impyrium by Henry H. Neff (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Oct 03, 2016 at 5:04pm

Hazel is a magical princess of Impyrium. Hob is a rebel. It doesn’t seem like they could ever be on the same side… but could they? When they find themselves united against enemies, they might have to join teams…

This was not my favorite book. I liked one of the characters (Hazel), but not the other (Hob). Since the chapters alternated between Hazel’s perspective and Hob’s perspective, I liked half of this book.

Impyrium will be available October 4.

Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea by Ben Clanton (from a two thumbs up reivewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Oct 01, 2016 at 11:05am

This book is a short but good book about a narwhal who finds himself in new waters and meets a jellyfish who does not know what a narwhal is and the narwhal does not know what a jellyfish is. The narwhal then creates a pod (a group of narwhals) where he asked a bunch of animals if they want to join and they all do. The narwhal puts horns on all of them so they all become part of the pod.

I like this book, it's funny but very short and meant for small kids, but I still loves it even though it took me five minutes to read. I give this book a three out of five stars because it is so short. I recommend this book for small kids who can read big words and people who like Captain Underpants. I liked the story line of the book, and I liked the style of the drawings, but I recommend the author put more words and make the story longer.

Moo by Sharon Creech (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Wednesday, Sep 28, 2016 at 3:57pm

Reena is moving to Maine along with her little brother Luke, her Mom, and Dad. Maine has lots of cows, but Reena and Luke know nothing about them. When their parents volunteer Reena and Luke to work on a farm with a very stubborn cow, they have no idea what to do. Especially when the cow’s owner wants Reena to show her cow at the fairs. Will the cow listen, or will it be a bad cow? Find out in this awesome novel, Moo!

I really liked this book. I think it’s a good read for the whole family.

Time Traveling with a Hamster by Ross Welford (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Sep 26, 2016 at 11:59am

Al’s father has died twice. Once on his birthday, Al receives a note from his father who died (the first time) four years prior. Now, he has to steal a moped, travel back through time, and save his father! And he must keep his hamster safe! On his first attempt, Al does not succeed and must try again.

Time Traveling with a Hamster was not my favorite book. One chapter it would be Monday, then it would be Saturday. It was confusing and skipped around a lot. If you like mysteries, then you might like this. I give this book 2/5 stars.
