Kid’s Book Review: The Battle for Wondla by Tony Diterlizzi

battle-for-wondla

This is book three in the series. Here is a link to my review of book one, and here is my review of book two.

This is about a battle that breaks out between humans and the aliens of Orbana. There were some violent parts, but other than that, it was a good book. Tony Diterlizzi is just a really great author because he makes beautiful worlds that you can fully immerse yourself in. His drawings tie together so well with the book, that it is really easy to imagine.

Rating 8/10 – The general the story line is interesting, there was just a bit too much violence for me.

Three children (Sarah Emily, Hannah, and Zachary) go to stay at their aunt’s house on Lonely Island for the summer. They discover a cave and a golden dragon who can speak!  This dragon has three heads, and when one head is awake, the others are sleeping. Each of the dragon heads tell a different story, and each story is very interesting.

Rating: 10/10. I really liked this book, and would read it again. It is book one of a series, so I look forward to the next one.

This is book 2 of the Magical Animal Adoption Agency Series. Here you can read about book one.

While working at the Magical Adoption Agency, Clover’s boss Mr. Jams get a phone call and immediately has to go on an emergency rescue mission. When he comes back to the agency, he has brought back a mysterious large egg. Later, Clover hears a noise coming from the other room so she goes to investigate. She finds that the egg is hatched, but there is nothing in the pen. I don’t want to say anymore because I don’t want to ruin the surprise.

Kid’s Book Review: Fort Solitude” by Dustin Nguyen & Derek Fridolfs

fort-solitude

It was difficult for me to take interest in learning to read, but at 8 years old I discovered comics! This book is a comic and I still love reading them.

Imagine what superheros are like as children. The personality traits of these children seemed to line up perfectly with what I imagined they would be like.

Each of the kids get and invitation to go to an adventure camp. Everything at the beginning seems normal, but suspicious things start happening and the children become curious. They band together to uncover the truth and they end up on a great adventure.

Rating: 9.5/10 – I am not personally really interested in superhero stuff, I might have given it a perfect score otherwise.
