The First Free Throw Shots!!

What a great response! You guys have been terrific, sending in all these reviews for the MARCH MADNESS FREE THROW CONTEST!! In fact, we've got so many that I can't put them all in this post. So I'm going to feature three kids today. I'll get to the rest of you later. Don't worry--your reviews will be posted soon! (BTW, most of the reviews are from the third grade classes at Metrolina Regional Scholars Academy--the same kids who sent in all those great reviews in February's contest!)

Our first free-throw shooter is our faithful friend Michael, King of Books and Time Travel:

Bone: Quest for the Spark, book 1

by Tom Sniegoski

Welcome back to the Valley! Bone is back with Quest for the Spark, an all-new trilogy! Join Percival F. Bone, along with his niece and nephew, Barclay and Abbey Bone, as a tornado somehow brings them to the Valley. Meanwhile, a turnip farmer's son named Tom is called by the Dreaming to stop the evil plans of the Nacht. But he has to hurry. If the Nacht succeeds, both the Dreaming and the Waking world will be one never-ending nightmare. Already his plans are at work. Also joining in on the quest is Randolf Clearmeadow, a former Veni Yan priest that the Dreaming isn't done with yet. Also returning are original Bone characters Thorn, Gran'ma Ben, Roderick the raccoon, and the two stupid, stupid Rat Creatures. This is a great adventure you won't want to miss out on: it's Bone as you've never seen it before! Brilliant writing!

SWISH!! Nothing but net on that one, Michael! What a great review. I really like the Bone series and want to see this new one!

The next reviewer to approach the line is Ninja. (what a cool name!)
