by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Sep 10, 2016 at 3:01pm

Darling Dimple was born in a castle made by dragons. She is the Princess’ Presser, a maid. One day, Darling discovers a closet with 100 dresses in it! But this is no ordinary closet. When she puts on one of the dresses, her appearance changes to the Scrubber’s! The dresses magically make her look like other people! When the princess’ life’s in danger, Darling knows she’ll have to put on a dress or two. Or 100...

If the Magic Fits was a radical book! It reminded me of Cinderella! If you like twisted fairy-tales, it’s a great book! I give this book 4.7/5 stars and two thumbs up!

Writing with Rosie by Patricia Reilly Giff (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Sep 08, 2016 at 10:33am

Do you want to be an author or find out how to write a better book? Well read this book to find out how! With the constant distractions of her seventy-pound dog, Rosie, author Patricia Reilly Giff explains how to write a spectacular story with plenty of great writing tips. I really liked this book because the author uses little bits of writing from her other books.

I loved the vivid language the author uses in this book. I also liked the different examples the author uses to explain character personalities. I also liked how she explained things. I really liked the similes the author used, especially “those words just slide in there like jello on a spoon.” I would rate this book 4 and a half stars for anyone in grades 2-4 who would like to write a book.

Sting by Jude Watson (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Wednesday, Sep 07, 2016 at 2:31pm

Sting is a book about two twin crooks. The book starts in Paris when March and Jules McQuin's jewel heist gets interrupted and they steal the wrong gem. March and Jules are sent to two different locations along the west coast to find two other gems. To make things harder, they have a gang of infamous criminals on their tracks, and an ancient curse ruining their resources. Sometimes it's hard to keep up with all the little details. I'd rate this book a 7/10.

Trapped by S.A. Bodeen (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Sarah and her stepbrother, Marco, have been on the island for a couple of days. They have to find Sarah’s dad, Marco’s brother, Nacho, and their dog, Ahab, who have all disappeared. They meet a strange “boy” named Leo who has done some very bad things. Can they trust Leo when he has taken most of their family, or will he take them too?

This book is a great story. I recommend it to anyone who likes adventure. This is the third in a series.

Howard Wallace, P.I. by Casey Lyall (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Sep 03, 2016 at 6:20pm

Something missing? Well, tell Howard Wallace P.I. He will solve any mystery (for a reasonable fee of course). Twelve-year- old Howard Wallace runs a successful private eye business. For a fee, he can solve any case. However one day, three things happen: 1) He opens brand new pack of juicy smash gum, his favourite. 2) He gets a new important case: three pre signed checks were stolen from a locker. And 3) He gets a partner. Ivy Mason, a new kid to their school, convinces Howard to let her become his new "junior" partner. Now, Howard and Ivy must solve the case before it's too late. Either the checks are spent or they run out of gum. Whichever comes first.

- Max, a Two Thumbs Up reviewer

Howard Wallace, P.I. will be available September 6.
