Review: The Lion of Mars by Jennifer L. Holm

Would you like to have a friend on Mars? Then this book is for you!

Bell is nothing but a pure normal 11-year-old boy right? Boring! No, not boring at all.
Bell is one of the first kids living on Mars. He has never seen his home planet and knows animals only out of books. Strange things happen at the American settlement when all the grownups get very sick with a virus. The children are immune and although against the rules, they reach out to the settlements from the other continents. Read the book to find out if the rescue mission is a success and if the adults will survive.

How did I like the book?
I loved the book because it reminded me of the space case series from James Patterson and you have to know I love those books! I would like Bell as a friend because, he has an interesting character with kindness and responsibility, despite he is the youngest of the children on Mars. So sad that there is only one book. I would have definitely enjoyed a series!

Who is that book for?
Children eight years and older can read it.

Or how about this: if you stay at the Jule’s undersea Lodge in Key Largo, Florida you will SCUBA DIVE to your room! How cool is that? I have one more for you: male pandas do a HANDSTAND while peeing to mark trees.

Review: Milo Moss Is Officially Un-Amazing by Lauren Allbright

Why would you have a paper towel tower in your livingroom? Dozens of paper planes trying desperate to get the longest throw? Or dress up as a cockroach in the middle of a stadium? Well, Milo and his parents did all of that because it was the family’s dream to get a Guinness World Record. Unfortunately every time they tried, they failed. Is there an award for the most failures? If so, Milo’s family would definitely win this one.

Review: Snow Treasure by Marie McSwigan

Did you know that a Norwegian gold treasure once got rescued by a bunch of kids from the Nazis during World War II? True story! We read “Snow Treasure” at school and I was very impressed how brave and smart Peter Lundstrom and his friends helped to make it happen.

Review: The Matchstick Castle by Keir Graff

Boring, Illinois. Brian can definitely think of a better way to spend his holidays. He couldn’t stay at home as his scientist dad got stationed at the North Pole. So Brian had to go to uncle Gary’s house, because he was the only one who had the time to take care of him over the summer.

Review: The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Rauf

There used to be a free desk in the class room and then Ahmet came.
He was a very serious, shy and quiet guy but Alexa and her friends Josie, Tom and Michael made him feel welcome.

Review: Max the Detective Cat – The Disappearing Diva by Sarah Todd Taylor

The fluffy, groomed cat Maximilian was used to live in the “most fashionable townhouse in London.” Sitting on a comfortable, red cushion and having only the best of the best food a cat can eat.

I liked the book because it is a book about friendship. Maximilian didn’t give up and although he was sad at the beginning of the story when he lost his home but he was all happy again in the end. What I didn’t like was that Countess Arlington wanted to drown Max. I found that a bit rough and not necessary.

I would recommend the book for kids 8 years and older. It has 196 pages and is not so hard to read. Rating: 8/10

Review: Miles und Niles – Hirnzellen im Hinterhalt von Jory John und Mac Barnett

Es gibt mehr Kühe als Einwohner in Yawnee Valley. Miles war nicht happy, als seine Mutter ausgerechnet dort eine neue Arbeit fand und sie umziehen mussten…

Um was geht es?

Was mochte ich an dem Buch?
Miles war früher ziemlich gemein zu seinen Freunden. Aber er lernt dazu. Am besten mochte ich das Ende aber das will ich Euch noch nicht verraten.
Besonders gut haben mir auch die Illustrationen von Kevin Cornell gefallen.
