The Tale of Despereaux

July 7th, 2011

The Tale of Despereaux is written by Kate DiCamallo. Reviewed by Geoff Cochran.

The Tale of Despereaux is a young mouse unlike any other. Instead of scurrying, he runs. Instead of being afraid of cats, he likes them. He cannot be caught by any mouse trap, and, instead of nibbling on books, he reads them. Craziest of all, his best friend is a human. Altogether, Despereaux is plain curious. But curiosity can get you into trouble sometimes. People of all ages will like this book once they start reading. There is a good chance you’ll read and re-read this book many times because this book will keep you wanting for more all throughout the book.

100 Percent Wolf

July 7th, 2011

100% Wolf is written by Jane Lyons. Reviewed by Geoff Cochran.

Freddy Lupin is not a normal kid. In fact, he is not even a kid. He’s a werewolf. On his ten-and-one-month birthday, Freddy will undergo his transformation. But he does not turn into a wolf… he turns into a POODLE, some of the worst enemies of werewolf kind. When Freddy finds out a werewolf hunter has started hunting his pack, he is the only one that can save them. But how? This book is hilariously funny and will take you into the book so much you won’t want to leave. If you like Diary of a Wimpy Kid or any other hilariously funny book, you will definitely like this book.

Hannah.jpgWhy I think you should read this book is because it has mystery and suspense. The main character, Hannah, finds delicate scale outlines on her legs. Hannah seeks two things, romance and to be normal. One person seems to know – who or what – Hannah is. Even as the mystery deepens, Hannah is sure of one thing. A sea change is coming. The mystery is so big there is another book to help solve it. The first book, Hannah, and the second book, May, do not solve the mystery, just make more mysteries and go deeper into the hearts of these two young women.

To find out more you will have to read the books. Read fast, the tide is turning and so are people. Read the books and make your choice.
