Bone: Quest for the Spark, book 2
by Tom Sniegoski
In the second of three sequels to Bone, all of your favorite new characters are back. Tom is on the right trail to finding another piece of the Spark, but Randolf questions Tom's leadership, making the quest a little harder. Meanwhile, Abbey and Barclay Bone, along with Roderick the raccoon, have a run-in with the Constable and the evil Rat Creatures, and the chase is on! The policemen and rats are constantly on their trail. Lorimar thinks that the people she thought lost, her people, are alive and are calling to her. So she must leave the mission to find them. But will she ever make it back? Plus, there's a surprise plot twist like you won't believe! Introducing new characters: Bobby, Joey, and Al, three bumbling bears, this new novel, although a step down from the original graphic novels, is still worth reading. Bone is the only fantasy I like. Even if you don't like fantasy, Bone is a great series that everyone should read! I'd say 7 stars out of 10 for this book.
My Weirder School, book 4
Mr. Burke is Berserk!
by Dan Gutman
They're back! A.J., Ryan, Michael, Neil, Alexia, Andrea, and Emily! When the mayor makes budget cuts, he fires the groundskeeper, Mr. Burke. But Mr. Burke doesn't leave. Instead he digs up gold on the playground! He claims that his grandfather had told him about it, but the monkey bars were in the way. Now that the mayor has removed them, he's able to dig up millions in gold and gilver, a rare combination of gold and silver! Pretty soon everyone in town is coming to the school, and the teachers stop teaching, all to dig up gold and gilver! But there's a surprise ending that I never saw coming! It's the weirdest book in any of the three series, and if you liked the others, you won't want to miss this!
