Hey everyone, I've got a mystery on my hands. This great new comment came in, recommending some really good books, but I don't know who it is. As you can see, there's no name on it. Darth Bill thinks it may be a library employee. His spies say it might even be someone named Mel. Well, here's the comment:
The Snow Spider: The Magician’s Trilogy, Book 1 by Jenny Nimmo
In The Snow Spider, we meet Gwyn. He seems like an ordinary kid until some strange things happen after his ninth birthday. His grandmother, Nain, gives him 5 strange gifts (a piece of seaweed, a tin whistle, a brooch, a scarf, and a broken toy horse). When she gives him his gifts she tells him, "Time to find out if you are a magician, Gwydion Gwyn. Time to remember your ancestors, Math, Lord of Gwynedd, Gwydion and Gilfaethwy.” Gwyn doesn’t really believe but then he starts to find out that these ordinary pieces of junk hold power and danger. He begins to learn that his family is more complicated than he thought.
Lion Boy by Zizou Corder
This book is a lot of fun to read. It has it all: villains, a boy who can talk to cats, science, lions, the future, a floating circus, and adventure! Check out my review on Bookhive (http://www.bookhive.org/books/details.asp?id=2054) to see more about this book. Yeah, these books were written by girls but occasionally they can write decent books!
These books sound good, don't they?Come in and get your free book, Mel--or whoever you are. But I've got a suspicion that this comment may have come from a girl! Hmmm, I guess that's all right as long as long as we find out about books that boys would like. Mel does have a good point. After all, who wrote the Harry Potter books? A girl! So what do you think, guys? Is Mel a girl? Wait, I've got a brilliant idea---why don't we wait until Mel comes in to claim the book. We always get a picture. Then you can tell us! Oh, I'm so smart!
