Hey, one and all,
Lord Vader has sent us yet another post!
Hi everyone. I hope you are enjoying your last few days of July. I just read another great nonfiction called Mysterious Jungles by Andreu Llamas. I learned a lot about plants and some jungle animals that I never knew. They had things about poison plants and meat eating plants. Also about forests that grow under water. I think you will really like this book.

Glad to hear that you've found another good nonfiction book. Has anyone else read one?
Well, it's about time that I told you about a couple of great books--and they're both about the ancient Greek myths. The first one is a graphic novel called Hercules : The Twelve Labors (story by Paul Storrie ; pencils by Steve Kurth ; inks by Barbara Schulz). This book is truly awesome. The story is very exciting (it should be--people have been telling it for the last 3000 years!), but the artwork is really what grabbed me. Most of the artwork in these graphic novels based on classic stories is only OK. This one, however, was truly fantastic! Bill said that it was good enough to be a Marvel publication. (No offense to you DC fans!) So check this one out. You'll love it.
The other book is The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, the first in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I haven't been so excited about a series in years! Did you ever get so fired up about a book that you wanted to tell every friend you had about it? That's how I feel about these books! They're funny, exciting, suspenceful, thrilling--well, you get the idea. If you want to know more, check out my review here.
That does it for today. Hope you're enjoying August. Tell me about you're reading.
P.S. Where are you, Obi-wan Andrew? Are you going to let Lord Vader write three posts in a row without a response?
