It's Monday again but no blue Monday this week. We've got new Slam Dunks and you'll see that two guys have reviewed the Children's Theatre of Charlotte's production of Treasure Island. Those two guys also happen to be Michael and AXEL SIMONE. The first one to appraoch the basket is Michael:
Treasure Island: The Theatrical Drama
playing at Imaginon
When Jim Hawkins' father dies, he is put in charge of his mother's inn. But one day a very strange man named Billy Bones comes in. When Jim is put in possesion of a valuable map taking him to an island filled with treasure, he must avoid evil pirates, and he must be careful of whom he chooses as friends.I loved the play! It's a fast-paced story, and there's no waiting for the next scene to be put up because they make it part of the show. You won't get bored with this, and I guarantee you'll love it too!
Flight, Volume 1
In this great comic book about things that fly, there are a myriad of different stories both adventurous and humorous as many cartoonists band together to create Flight, Volume 1! Some of the more popular cartoonists are Kazu Kabushui, Kean Soo, and Jeff Smith. Amazing!
Right behind Michael is AXEL SIMONE:
I SAW THE TREASURE ISLAND PLAY TODAY. IT WAS GREAT. IT IS THE BEST PLAY EVER. IT IS ABOUT A BOY NAMED JIM HAWKINS. HE TRAVELS TO TREASURE ISLAND.ALONG THE WAY HE FIGHTS PIRATES WHILE SEARCHING FOR TREASURE. I RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE. BYE.
Next in line is Dakota T:
The next book that I'm reviewing is The London Eye Mystery. This is another mystery book that made me really have to think. This is about a brother and sister whose cousin comes for a visit. When they show him around and take him to the London Eye, he gets on. Thirty minutes later, the doors open and everybody comes out, except for their cousin. This is a great mystery for all ages and it puts your mind to the test. I really enjoyed it and would read it again.
I just finished the book The Phantom Tollbooth and it was amazing! Some parts were strange but overall it really hooked me. It was about a boy who finds a toll booth in his house with two coins. When he put one in he was lead to a magical place that had an interesting history. He eventually runs into a dog named Tock that had a clock in his belly area. He takes him to Dictionapolis where he goes from there on his quest to free Rhyme and Reason. But he has to go through an adventurous journey and many 'demons' to which are guarding the tower in which Rhyme and Reason are locked inside. Overall this book deserves a nine out of ten for its high action.
And finally Brian B comes to the line:
I'm reviewing No Arm In Left Field by Matt Christopher. Terry Delaney wants to play baseball with the local team but will his skin color make a difference? This is a great book, and it shows that skin color doesn't matter.
Swish!! Thanks, everyone! I agree with Dakota T about The Phantom Tollbooth. One of the funniest and most action-packed stories ever, especially if you like puns. I heard a great audiobook version of it--see my review here.This Flight book looks very interesting. Several of the best comics artist are in it. Fortunately the library system has copies. (are you sure that Jeff Smith is in this one, Michael? I didn't see his name in the credits) Hey, Bill, comics meister, have you seen this one?
Very well, here are today's standings. (Don't forget that reviews of the Treasure Island play are worth three points)
Dakota T--10 points
Brian B--8 points
Justin B--3 points
Once again, we have a TIE!! Micahel and AXEL continue to battle it out! Dakota T is right behind them, though, and Brian B threatens as well. But new guys can write in and the others on the list may come roaring back. I can hardly wait to see what tomorrow brings!!
