MINRS 2 by Kevin Sylvester (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Tuesday, Sep 20, 2016 at 8:33pm

The Minrs were going to get saved! Or were they? MINRS2 is the sequel to MINRS. I loved the way there was suspense at every corner they turn. Author Kevin Sylvester makes you feel the characters’ emotions and uses great details. I really liked the cover page but if I was the author, instead of the title being MINRS2 it would be MINRS, Return of the Landers. I rate this book 4.75 stars because at times I couldn’t understand what the characters were talking about, but the rest of the book was amazing!

MINRS2 will be available October 11.

Trailblazers: 33 Women in Science Who Changed the World by Rachel Swaby (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Sep 19, 2016 at 2:08pm

Trailblazers is a must-have for every science classroom! It talks about so many contributions to science that women have made. I found that so many of the women were from America, and I wished the author could have found more stories from Third World countries. Personally, I liked the part about Florence Nightingale the best. You probably know her as the lady with the lamp or the nurse, but did you know she was also a statistician? I think that's why it was my favourite.

This book was amazing, and inspiring in so many ways. It was exciting to see how far humankind as come. 5/5 stars from me! I recommend this book for everyone in grades 3+, or anyone who loves science!

Hamstersaurus Rex by Tom O'Donnell (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Sep 17, 2016 at 3:43pm

The book Hamstersaurus Rex is a very good book that's about a hamster that randomly appears in the back of Sam's grade 6 classroom who growls so Sam then names him Hamstersarus Rex. This turns out to be a very good name after he eats Dinoblast Powerpack Powder and turns into a Dino Hamster which brings a lot of adventures. I recommend this book for ages 7-12.

Hamstersaurus Rex will be available October 4.

Timmy Failure: The Book You're Not Supposed to Have by Stephan Pastis (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Sep 15, 2016 at 12:13pm

Being a detective is fun, but being the world's greatest detective is even better. That's true about Timmy Failure, world's greatest detective. When Timmy's mom bans him from doing detective work for the rest of the school year, Timmy thinks his life is ruined. But when the teachers go on strike, Timmy decides to do detective work in secret. And soon enough, he gets a case. Rollo, his best friend, has gone missing! Timmy can't crack this case alone, so he hires Molly Moskins, one of his classmates, to be his partner. Can Timmy and Molly figure out what happened to Rollo? Or will Rollo stay missing forever?

I found this book very funny, however I recommend that you read the other books in this series first.

Ghosts and Goblins by Maggie Pearson (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Tuesday, Sep 13, 2016 at 5:26pm

A lone traveler battles a ghost in a haunted house. A werewolf's bride is on the hunt to feed her husband dinner. A vampire waits outside a girl's window for the perfect moment to pounce . . . This collection of traditional tales and myths from cultures around the world looks at all things spooky. From magical to ridiculous, mysterious to terrifying, watch out for things that go boo in the night!

Ghosts and Goblins is undoubtedly the best collection of scary stories ever. When it's done, you miss it like a novel even though it's not. I feel like Ghosts and Goblins expresses that each country around the world has a different style of scary stories. Somehow, some of them are weird, and some of them are scary, and some are funny.
