Yo Ho Ho! The Bruner Boys Write In!

All hands on deck! This be Eyepatch Carl, the scurviest knave that ever blogged the Seven Seas! We've sighted a new ship and there seem to be a new group of friends on board, The Bruner Boys Beware! Step aboard, me lads and let's hear what ye have to say:

"AARRRRRRRRRRRR" Where is a pirates favorite place to eat? Arrrrrrrrrby's!

We loved this new book and especially liked the game!Even our girl-dubed-a-dude liked it. Austin has been wearing his Captain Eli shirt for 2 weeks straight now and Master Zach is begning to get scared I think. Well, we are finishing up THE RIVER, by Paulsen. We liked HATCHET because it is GRIPPING and DANGEROUS. THE RIVER is not really as exciting yet, but we are hoping for some NEAR DEATH experiences this week near the end. Maybe a 10 foot BEAR or something horrible like a BROKEN BONE.Austin is reading THE SUGAR CREEK GANG there is 60 of them in the series he says...hmmmm.We also finished reading Jake Maddox books from Imaginon including BOARD REBEL, GO KART RUSH, and BMX BUDDY. These are great Keg says and perfect for the errand trips in the car.SEE YOU LATER MATE-Y...

Did I mention that Austin is STILL wearing the shirt?!?! We returned the book to Master Zach on the vessel in Matthews... he was very glad to have received such a LOOT! ARRRRRRRRRRR.What is a pirates favorite letter of the alphabet? RRRRRRRRRRRRR.

Good work, me lads! Those jokes have got me slapping the wooden leg! Isn't the Capt'n Eli graphic novel truly cool? Haven't enjoyed a gn that much in a long time. And I like me Jake Maddox books and REALLY like some Gary Paulsen, especially Hatchet. Look at the post for March 2, 2008 to see the Jake Maddox reviews and July 19 and 20, 2008 posts for me reviews of Hatchet and Lawn Boy, another fine Paulsen book. Have ye ever read the graphic novel version of Treasure Island, the greatest pirate story ever? ARRRRRR, ye should! Go to me post of September 27, 2007 to read of it.

Glad to have ye aboard, mateys! Keep writing to us!

Sailing across the Spanish Main,

Eyepatch Carrrrrrrrl

The Maze of Bones by Rick Riordan is awesome (you can buy it on Amazon.com). I can not wait for the sequel, A False Note, to come out. For those of you who have not read it, I have to tell you that Ben Franklin, the Wright Brothers, Harry Houdini, Sir Issic Newton, and the guy who invented microwave burritos are Cahills. And YOU might be one, too! Dan and Amy Cahill who are kids go on a dangerous quest to be the richest, most powerful people in the world, but there are others who are trying to kill them to do this first. I liked this book because it has adventure at every turn.
