Jasper Dash and the Flame Pits of Delaware

This book is about a boy named Jasper Dash who goes to Delaware to stop evil villains who are taking over an ancient city which nobody can find except for brainy kids. It is called Vbngoom (Vih-Bin-Goom). My favorite part is when Jasper fights a grass squid that is 10 times the size of him. He doesn't have any weapons so he tricks the squid by running around its tentacles. The tentacles slash at him, but they miss and hit a lava pit.

If you want to learn more about the book, read it or listen to the audiobook at your local library. It is a fascinating book!

The Castle of Llyr

The Castle of Llyr {LEER} is the third book in the Chronicles of Prydain series by Lloyd Alexander. It is about a boy named Taran and a princess named Eilonwy. Their companions are Prince Gwydion, Kaw, Fflewddur Fflam, Achren, Dallben, and Gurgi. In the book, Eilonwy gets taken away by Achren to Caer Colur and orders Magg to watch over her. Then Magg ties Eilonwy up and gags her. Achren's powers are taken away and she tries to kill herself because she wants to die. I like this book because it is so adventurous and the characters have a lot of magical powers. I would recommend this book to children who like fantasies.

Wreck-It Ralph Movie Review

Wreck-It Ralph the movie is an epic adventure that takes place in a video game system. Wreck-It Ralph runs away from his video game and nobody knows where he is. In the human world the kids think there is something wrong with the game. So the man who works in the video game arcade puts a sign on the game that says "Out of Order." That's bad because if the manager of the arcade unplugs the game, everything in the game will die, and the men and women and Fix-It Felix Jr. don't want that to happen.

This movie also takes place in two other cool places: Hero's Duty and Sugar Rush. King Candy is the king of Sugar Rush. He's not really a king, though. He's an evil character from another game that has come to take over.

Watch the movie to see more. Also, check out the ultimate Wii game.

Professor Gargoyle/The Slither Sisters/Teacher's Pest

Professor Gargoyle, The Slither Sisters, and Teacher's Pest are all awesome horror stories by Charles Gilman. Professor Gargoyle is about a boy that sneaks up on his teacher one night. He realizes that his teacher is actually an evil gargoyle demon. The Slither Sisters is also about a boy whose classmates actually turn out to be gorgons and try to destroy the school. In Teacher's Pest, bugs are crawling all over the boy's school. Read it to see if a giant fruit fly actually destroyed the world or not. I liked these books because of their freaky horror moments. I would recommend these books to kids who love horror stories.
