4-0 out of 5 stars Marvelous
Here is Gregory Maguire's spin on Cinderella.It is told from the perspective of the ugly stepsister in Cinderella.In this novel you feel a connection with Iris.We see her life and how she must take care of her older sister Ruth, who is mentally retarded and how she envies Clara at times who later adopts the name of Cinderella.The story focuses on Iris and how she learns the art of painting and loves it.She even starts to fall in love with the painter's assitant.Of course there's the ball that she is forced to attend and Clara goes against her stepmothers wishes.For she became Cinderella of her own choice.She never liked her stepmother at all and soon just became the cinder girl on her own.At the ball Clara comes close to actually winning the prince's heart but then Clara enters and the prince falls in love with her at first sight and Iris doesnt mind.She loves her painter.Of course the ending is happy, Clara marries the prince, but the stepsisters are not tortured like in the Brothers Grimm or ignored like in Disney.Iris is with her painter and we learn at the very end that the story is being told from the perspective of Ruth and not Iris like you are led to beleive.Great read!

4-0 out of 5 stars a mixed bag...fails to be truly engaging
There were so many things i liked about this book, but I can't give it an entirely positive review. Maguire is extremely gifted in imagery and characterization. At times the presentation of contrasts beauty/ugliness, kindess/cruely, love/hate- were all way too obvious- themes are best discoveded subtlely not shoved down our throats.

Editorial Review

When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables, Prince Edward Island, send for a boy orphan to help them out at the farm, they are in no way prepared for the error that will change their lives. The mistake takes the shape of Anne Shirley, a redheaded 11-year-old girl who can talk anyone under the table. Fortunately, her sunny nature and quirky imagination quickly win over her reluctant foster parents. Anne's feisty spirit soon draws many friends--and much trouble--her way. Not a day goes by without some melodramatic new episode in the tragicomedy of her life. Early on, Anne declares her eternal antipathy for Gilbert Blythe, a classmate who commits the ultimate sin of mocking her hair color. Later, she accidentally dyes that same cursed hair green. Another time, in her haste to impress a new neighbor, she bakes a cake with liniment instead of vanilla.Lucy Maud Montgomery's series of books about Anne have remained classics since the early 20th century. Her portrayal of this feminine yet independent spirit has given generations of girls a strong female role model, while offering a taste of another, milder time in history. This lovely boxed gift collection comprises Read more

I am a librarian, and I started reading this series in 2005. I never really understood why it was for children because there is more violence and bloodshed then the Harry Potter series. Moreover, The Warriors saga became a lot more darker and gothic once it spun off onto the sequel: "T.N.P."

2-0 out of 5 stars An overall Disappointment
This book was largely a disappointment. I had heard previously that this was the leading high school text that is used and had high expectations. I was disappointed to find a plethora of type errors (including math mistakes!) and also very poor descriptions of things like bonding theory, equilibrium constants, reaction ratesetc. The book covers a lot but fails to get real advanced in much of anything. I would reccomend for the advanced high school student a college level text with a good teacher instead of wasting your time on this.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not too good for self-study
I'm an 8th grader that wants to learn chemistry very badly, and bought this book.

Editorial Review

Who would ever suspect that a tiny little mouse could wear out anenergetic young boy? Well, if you're going to go around giving an exuberantly bossy rodent a cookie, you'd best be prepared to do one or two more favors for it before your day is through. For example, he'll certainly need a glass of milk to wash down that cookie, won't he? And you can't expect him to drink the milk without a straw, can you? By the time our hero is finished granting all the mouse's very urgent requests--and cleaning up after him--it's no wonder his head is becoming a bit heavy. Laura Joffe Numeroff's tale of warped logic is a sure-fire winner in the giggle-generator category. But concerned parents can rest assured, there's even a little education thrown in for good measure: underneath the folly rest valuable lessons about cause and effect. Felicia Bond's hilarious pictures are full of subtle, fun details. Fans will be happy to know that this dynamic author-illustrator pair teamed up again for Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best book everrrrrr!!
This was a favorite of mine when i was younger, and that has not changed as i have grown older. "If you give a mouse a cookie" is an amazing book. It is funny, interesting, and an all around good children's book. I recomend this book to anyone who has kids or enjoys kids books. It is also a well illustrated book which makes it even better.

5-0 out of 5 stars New Favorite
My 3 year old son and I love this book.We can't decide which we like more - this one or Numeroff's other book "If Give GiveMoose a Muffin".Unlike some children's books, both the text and illustrations are equally enjoyable.It's especially fun to see how the animals boss the children around and tie them out.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you give a child this book...
...make sure to have cookies and milk to share right after you are done reading it! What a fun book for preschoolers and a good book for introducing sequence of events. One of my son's favorites. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Good/Bad Start to the Year
Starting a completely new school isn't always easy, especially in Claire Lyon's case. Claire and her family moved from Orlando, Florida to Westchester, New York. Claire's Father is best friends with William Block, Father of Massie Block (Claire's age). The Lyon's family (Consisting of Claire's 10 year old brother Todd, Mom, and Dad) is staying in Massie's guest house in the back yard of the Block's estate. Massie does not take a liking to Claire when they first meet, and it doesn't get better. After a hard first day of school, filled with NO FRIENDS, Claire thinks of ways to get back at Massie for all the pranks she pulled on her during the day. One day while Massie, her dog, and her Dad are out on their nightly walk, Claire sneaks in and gets on Massie's computer. There she turns Massie's three best friends Dylan, Kristen, and Alicia against her. Unfortunately, during an argument with Kristen one day, Massie discovers that Claire was responsible for the feuds. At the long awaited school fundraiser auction for the girl's school, Massie and Claire's Dad take the stage for a round of "Ninety Nine Bottles of Beer on the Wall." They were both drunk, and were planning on singing until $1000 more was collected for the school. It was bearable until they called for their family to come up. Massie and Claire ran out of the tent, and hid in the bushes right next to each other. For two hours, the two exchanged jokes, embarrassing moments, and stories. Afterwards, Massie even said she had fun! The war was over; at least until next week.....This is a fantastic book that all middle school girls would love.

Wouldn't it be great to be the most popular girl in school? In Lisi Harrison's book, The Clique, that's what life is all about. This is a great book filled with drama that will hold a middle school girl's attention forever. The Clique is about a group of four girls, who rule the school called the Pretty Committee. When Claire, the new girl, comes to Westchester from Orlando, she stays in the guest house of Massie Block, the leader of the Pretty Committee, it's a whole different world. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Roy Eberhardt is the new kid--again. This time around it's Trace MiddleSchool in humid Coconut Grove, Florida. But it's still the same old routine:table by himself at lunch, no real friends, and thick-headed bullies like DanaMatherson pushing him around. But if it wasn't for Dana Matherson mashing hisface against the school bus window that one day, he might never have seen thetow-headed running boy. And if he had never seen the running boy, he might neverhave met tall, tough, bully-beating Beatrice. And if he had never met Beatrice,he might never have discovered the burrowing owls living in the lot on thecorner of East Oriole Avenue. And if he had never discovered the owls, heprobably would have missed out on the adventure of a lifetime. Apparently,bullies do serve a greater purpose in the scope of the universe. Because if itwasn't for Dana Matherson...Read more

My book for my review was called Hoot. Hoot is about a boy named Roy . Roy is the main character in the story. The author's name is Carl Hiaasen. I would recommend this book to girls because I have know some boy who have read this book and did not like it. Hoot is my favorite book. I have read it 7 times! I think this book is best for girls. From ages 9 to 12 it is more of a kid book than an adult book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Loved it!
After reading the Midnighters trilogy I wanted to read more by Scott Westerfeld.Uglies was a great book.It takes place in the future.They try to prevent destruction like the people before them called "rusties" by making everyone beautiful when they turn 16.The rusties are basically us now, as I see it.All of Tally's friends have turned pretty, and she can't wait until it's her turn.All was going well until her new friend Shay runs away to a place called The Smoke to avoid being turned pretty.Tally thinks nothing of it, after all it was Shay's choice, until she is forced by Special Circumstances to find Shay and destroy The Smoke in order to be turned pretty.
5-0 out of 5 stars great book
I am not going to summarize it, but Uglies was a great book. It reminded me a little of extreme cosmetic surgery people do to themselves. It also shows that you can be beautiful without surgery and makeup and stuff, and about how some people are too appalled by the "ugliness" of a person and can't see a nice human being standing three feet away. This was a great book, but I think it is more suitable for kids around 13-14.

4-0 out of 5 stars It may be called ugly, but it certainly is not.
Ugliesby Scott Westerfield is a great book filled with it's fair share of obstacles, misunderstandings, and plenty of close calls. This story is about a young girl named Tally Youngblood who can't wait to turn pretty. Tally lives in a very condensed and small town filled with tall buildings side by side everywhere. With tons of out-of-this-world gadgets the people living in Pretty Town and Uglyville are living a dream, or so they think. In Uglyville (where Tally lives) when an 'ugly' turns sixteen they get a surgery that transforms into a drop-dead gorgeous 'pretty'. 'Pretties' have big bright eyes, symmetrical faces, and perfectly proportioned bodies, far more stunning than any ugly like Tally. But her new friend Shay questions this system, and forces Tally to look at her perfect world in a whole new way.

Editorial Review

As his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry approaches, 15-year-old Harry Potter is in full-blown adolescence, complete with regular outbursts of rage, a nearly debilitating crush, and the blooming of a powerful sense of rebellion. It's been yet another infuriating and boring summer with the despicable Dursleys, this time with minimal contact from our hero's non-Muggle friends from school. Harry is feeling especially edgy at the lack of news from the magic world, wondering when the freshly revived evil Lord Voldemort will strike. Returning to Hogwarts will be a relief... or will it?Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars By far, the worst in the series.
This installment is easily the weakest in the series. The writing is all over the place, and there is no central plot to drive the story. That being said, the book is still good. I've just come to expect more from this series.

5-0 out of 5 stars It was great!
Harry Potter and The Order of the Pheonex was one of the best books i have ever read even though I am a huge Harry Potter fan. The book starts out by describing how the muggle prime minister and the minister of magic have to be connected. Harry is at home in the next chapter and Dumbledore comes to see him at the Durlseys and tells Harry how they would be having lessons the whole year, teaching Harry more about Voldemort's past and Harry learning how to kill Voldemort. The rest of the book plays up on the adventure that Dumbledore and Harry take together trying to kill part of Voldemorts soul, a Horcrux. When Harry and Dumbledore come home Dumbledore learns of how Draco Malfoy has been following Voldemort all year and Snape is also on the dark lord's side, seeing how he kills Dumbledore.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dustin's Review
I loved this book because it kept you guessing and it was exciting.It was even better than all the others in my opinion.Harry was furious because he coudn't find out what Lord Voldemort was doing.This book is about stopping Voldemort and his horrible plans.The head of the ministry of magic has hired Professor Umbridge as the new defense against the Dark Arts teacher and the High Inquisitor of the school.Harry tries to help out other people by teaching defensive spells.I definitely recommend this book to people of all ages! ...

In the epic trilogy His Dark Materials, Philip Pullman unlocks the door to worlds parallel to our own. Dæmons and winged creatures live side by side with humans, and a mysterious entity called Dust just might have the power to unite the universes--if it isn't destroyed first. The three books in Pullman's heroic fantasy series, published as mass-market paperbacks with new covers, are united here in one boxed set that includes Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful novels, and deeply spiritual
These novels are wonderful: an astonishing concept, utterly believable characters, great plot-lines, and beautifully written.
5-0 out of 5 stars after His Dark Materials.... (from my blog)
I cannot paraphrase the story in any way that would do it justice. Pullman is beyond me; the story was too rich, too powerful, too complex and subtle and ambitious, and it had to be to be equal to what I now sit here wishing I could convey to you.
5-0 out of 5 stars A grand metaphysical journey with convincing characters and details
I just finished reading this grand trilogy to my kids, aged 8, 10, and 12.My wife ended up sitting in on almost the entire series, and all of us were riveted from Oxford to the World of the Dead and back again.These books are incredibly ambitious: they set out to stitch together a religio-political history of the multiverse with deep, informed reference to physics, religious history, adolescent psychology, Nietzschean heroism, etc. etc. etc.The result, as I read it, is one of the most compelling indictments of church and state ever written for a broad audience.Author Philip Pullman concludes, without didactic hamfistedness, that the first purpose of churches and governments is self-perpetuation through maintaining the ignorance of their adherents and citizens.The greatest wisdom and joy, in Pullman's worlds, comes of full, mortal, bodily engagement with the physical world per se: with domestic comforts, food, sex, art, aesthetic involvement, work well done, craft, cleverness, etc.The well-earned consciousness of a human adult, earned through Blakean experience, is the crowning moment of all creation.Antithetical to this wisdom and consciousness is dogmatic narowness, asceticism, monasticism, self-denial, narrowness of experience.

My son is 10 and in fourth grade.We use this dictionary just about everyday for studying poetry.So far, every word we've looked up has been there and with enough explanation to really make sense.We looked up the word "tread" - there were several definitions (about 4 inches worth), but each gave a sentence for context, which helped him pick out the right definition to apply.We also looked up "limerick" - the definition given was complete in that it actually included the rhyming scheme used, which was not included in two other dictionaries we have.There are color pictures and the the writing is large enough for him to read.It was also very reasonably priced.We are very happy with this Dictionary; we liked it so much we bought the American Heritage Thesaurus to go with it!

5-0 out of 5 stars I stayed up late last night reading my daughter's dictionary!
My six year old needed a dictionary to look up words for her Junior Great Books homework.At first, I was drawn to dictionaries written for 8-10 year olds.They had larger print and flashier, more colorful pictures.Unfortunately, they didn't do the job of providing definitions for the unfamiliar words we needed to define (this week we needed to find tun, puncheon, bewail, and beadle.)I was forced to look at dictionaries aimed at an older audience and found that many were just not visually appealing.I didn't want a bland reference book that would be opened as little as necessary.I wanted something worth flipping through on a rainy day.

Editorial Review

"This Fox is a tricky fox. He'll try to get your tongue in trouble." Dr. Seuss gives fair warning to anyone brave enough to read along with the Fox in Socks, who likes to play tongue-twisting games with his friend Mr. Knox. "Here's an easy game to play. Here's an easy thing to say.... New socks. Two socks. Whose socks? Sue's socks." But Mr. Fox Socks isn't about to let Knox off so easy. Soon Goo-Goose is choosing to chew chewy gluey blue goo, while tweetle beetles battle with paddles in a puddle (in case you were wondering, that's called a "tweetle beetle puddle paddle battle"). Mr. Knox gets exasperated: "I can't blab such blibber blubber! My tongue isn't made of rubber." But he catches on to the game before it's all through. One of Seuss's best, this must-read-aloud classic is guaranteed to get many giggles out of readers young and old. (Ages 4 to 8) Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars it grew on me
When we first bought this book for my then two-year old daughter, I could barely get through it the first time.I didn't much like it.That's probably because I was so busy trying to say the words it, I couldn't pay attention to what was actually happening.Since then, the book has grown on me, and my now three-year old daughter loves it, as well.After reading the book aloud a gazillion times, I can now say it almost without getting my tongue twisted, and my favorite part is the ending, where Knox finally gets his "revenge" for what Fox has put him through.

5-0 out of 5 stars He WILL read this book.... but you should too
There's definitely no tip-toeing around in this book, which is exactly why boys will actually read it.Although I was a little shocked by the authors' candor at times, I also recognize the only way to really get through to adolescent boys is on their playing field.
5-0 out of 5 stars Wish I Had this Growing Up...Every 13 year old Boy Needs this Book.
I purchased this book for my friends son who is 13 years old and before giving it to her I read through it myself. All of the information is very important (12+ years old) and can help educate young boys to make decisions based on knowledge they obtained before there is a problem rather than after, like what I went through when I was growing up and I'm sure countless others have that did not have the benefit and knowledge in this book.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good info, a little too advanced
The first third of this book contained good information for my 11-year-old son.It explains what happens to a boy's body in a way he was able to understand.The remainder of the book also has good information, but the topics of intercourse and STDs were more than my son was ready for. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Although this book was around when many of today's parents wereyoungsters, it has remained a steadfast must-have in every toddler's library. For starters, it's a great vocabulary guide that names the many things that go (and some that haven't a prayer of going, but are great fun to imagine anyway). It's also teeming with detail-rich scenes and characters on every page, teaching children the rewards of looking long and closely (such as finding the hidden "Goldbug" in each spread). Along the way it entertains with the silly and slapstick--everything from toothpaste and toothbrush cars to six fire department vehicles that show up to extinguish a ladybug-size fire in a miniature pink convertible. What's most amazing about this book, however, is its longevity. When you purchase it for your fledgling talker, you should consider it an investment. Even 11-, 12-, and 13-year-olds are known to pore over the book nostalgically, cooing at Lowly Worm and eagerly tracking Officer Flossie's book-long chase after that irresponsible, speedster driver in a cowboy hat.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Scarry Classic
I first read this book to my daughter 22 years ago. It was her favorite, and alas it wore out. Searching to find Goldbug on each and every page was the most fun, and the verse was very entertaining as we did so. It helped teach her words, spelling and all about the different ways to get from here to there. I just reordered a copy to surprise her for Christmas, as she prepares to start her own family. I highly recommend this book by one of the most beloved children's authors.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply outstanding
I grew up with Richard Scarry books, including the now out-of-print "Busy Busy World."For some reason I had forgotten what a gem this is.Any child will delight in it, and for parents it is so nice to have a book that can be different every time you read it, as most of our books are read over, and over, and over.

5-0 out of 5 stars My son's absolute favorite book
My son (21 months and obsessed with cars and trucks) asks to read his "cars and trucks book" every single day. It seems like every time we read it, we find something new. Great for keeping kids engaged, and the photos are excellent. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars New Series

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow--great read for all!
Rachel Caine fans are in for another rockin' ride in this new series!
3-0 out of 5 stars A good book for the right age group but a disappointment for us "grown ups"
I love Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series and was keen to read this, the first in a new series subtitled "The Morganville Vampires". However, this book is VERY different from the Weather Warden series - our heroine is a 16 year old girl going off to College. As an English woman the American college system seems very bizarre at the best of times but Claire's experiences in her first six weeks at her new college in Morganville are even stranger. She's a bit of a brainy nerd and pretty soon falls foul of Monica, the 'cool but dim' girl who, with her acolytes, virtually runs the college. They gang up against Claire and, in order to escape various attempts to harm her, some successful, Claire moves out and starts living in an old house with two young men, Shane and Michael, and a goth girl, Eve. Once there she begins to find out some very strange things about the town of Morganville, its residents and the rules that she needs to know to be protected from the evil things out there.

Editorial Review

"If you take a bad boy and make him dig a hole every day in the hot sun,it will turn him into a good boy." Such is the reigning philosophy at Camp Green Lake, a juvenile detention facility where there is no lake, and there are no happy campers. In place of what used to be "the largest lake in Texas" is now a dry, flat, sunburned wasteland, pocked with countless identical holes dug by boys improving their character. Stanley Yelnats, of palindromic name and ill-fated pedigree, has landed at Camp Green Lake because it seemed a better option than jail. No matter that his conviction was all a case of mistaken identity, the Yelnats family has become accustomed to a long history of bad luck, thanks to their "no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather!" Despite his innocence, Stanley is quickly enmeshed in the Camp Green Lake routine: rising before dawn to dig a hole five feet deep and five feet in diameter; learning how to get along with the Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Holes
This book is one of those books, that when you start reading it you don't want to put it down. First things first, the title of the book is Holes and the author just happens to be Louis Sachar. He is an amazing author. He has another book that is new, that also goes to the book Holes. It is called Small Steps. Let me tell you something, there are a lot of characters. We have Stanley Yelnats and he is the main character. He is walking home from school and gets hit in the head by these shoes and the cops come. He ends up going to Camp Green Lake to dig holes for his punishment. When he gets there he meets a whole bunch of people. The people he meets are Zero, Armpit, X-Ray, and Zig Zag. One person he does not like is Mr. Sir. That is how it all got started for Stanley. I really like this book, it is a terrific story. My favorite part is when Stanley steals the water truck and crashes into a hole. It is a wonderful book so I think it is appropriate for any age to read this book. This book is fiction but it could be nonfiction. Compared to other books this one is one of my favorites. It also has a lot of rewards such as the Newbery Award, the Rebecca Caudill Award, and last but not least the National Book Award. On a scale from one to ten I definitely rate this a ten.

5-0 out of 5 stars NOT just for kids!
When my daughter's 5th grade teacher sent her home with this book, I picked it up FOR A SECONDto be sure it was "appropriate." The next thing I knew, it was 2 a.m., and I was entranced.This is a fantastic, many-layered book that will enthrall anyone who loves a good story, great writing, and magical story telling. Much better than the (really good) movie.
