    Like all Weird But True books, this one includes many interesting facts--but only one a day, for inspiration. Unlike the other Weird But True books, this one includes places where you can write down your own weird but true experiences, and observations about the world around you. I really enjoyed this book, and recommend it to all out there that love learning about new, weird, and interesting things in the world around us!

    This was a wonderful and well-written book. Hugo Cabret, a young boy incredibly interested in mechanical structures, and fixing things, is the clock-keeper at a train station in Paris. He lives in the walls of the train station, and is known to steal things; he is a thief. His life changes, and things start to become a little bit more mysterious, when a young girl, a key, a journal, and a mechanical man come into his life. His undercover life may be revealed at last. Will this happen, or will Hugo be able to keep his life in its normal flow? Read this amazing book (with beautifully drawn pictures, and lots of them too!!) to find out! I personally loved it, and didn't want it to end when I read the last page. I recommend this to all readers!

    ocelot's book review was featured in The Giver (Cascades).
    I found this to be quite an interesting read. In a seemingly utopian world, members of a perfect society have regular, ordinary jobs that they commute to and from each day, and kids go to school to learn. However, there are some things that may prove to be not so perfect. Members of this society can't see color. They don't know what color is. They can't experience pain or pleasure. There are, however, two people in this society that are an exception to all of those things. They can see color. They can experience pain and pleasure. They understand that their seemingly utopian society may truly be a dystopian society, blinding the members of this society from the truth of the past, the truth of the things beyond their society. These two people are the Giver, and Jonas, the Receiver of Memories. When Jonas begins to learn more and more about the truth of his society, and where he lives, he begins to form a plan to rebel, to run away from his society to try to figure out what's beyond his life. Will that work? Or will the 'executive leaders' of this so-called perfect little village do everything they can to stop him? Read this wonderfully intriguing novel to find out! Note: I did read this novel twice, at different ages, and have interpreted it differently each time I read it. The review above is my overall impression of this wonderful novel by Lois Lowry.

    I loved Smile when I first read it! Although, I do wish I had read it before I got my braces! This book is a true story about a girl named Raina Telgemeier, and her dental life. She goes through a lot, including losing a tooth (Not naturally), Girl Scouts, and much more! If you read the book you'll find out more about her, and I suggest reading her other books too, Sisters, and Drama! I would definitely suggest this book to people who are nervous about getting braces! This book is awesome! It has many pictures and speech bubbles, and it is basically a long comic book.

    This book is all about fun! (As I've said before!) The 13-Story Treehouse is a book filled with lots of fun stories. (Pun intended!) The treehouse has a pool, a library--even a tank full of sharks--almost anything you could possibly imagine! I would recommend this to readers that like books filled with fun, and have a light mood to them.

    Several children respond to an ad in the newspaper, and are put through several tests (some of which are unknown to them) in order to select the smartest four (two girls and two boys) kids that can be part of the Mysterious Benedict Society. This Society has a mission. But this mission will require these four gifted children to go undercover, and by doing so, will put themselves in great risk if they are found out, but will help many people if they do succeed. Will they be able to do so? Or will they get caught by their enemies? Read this nail-biting novel to find out! I really enjoyed this book, and am anticipating reading the other novels in this series.

    Yes, I was hoping to receive books as well! Maybe, if possible, next year, they can return to giving out books as prizes. Thank you for the opportunity and the prizes this year, DOGObooks!

    As usual, this type of book (mystery/action and adventure) draws my attention, especially the part about Bigfoot, and them discovering 'more than they ever could have imagined.' Overall, the basic storyline and plot seem like they would make a wonderfully interesting novel to read! Thank you DOGObooks for this opportunity!

    This was a great read, and I definitely recommend it to people who like a tad bit of mystery and a bit of action. Warren is a descendent of many Warrens, and as you can tell by the title, he is the 13th in his line. He is currently living with his Uncle in a hotel, and his uncle is about to marry a wife, Warren's aunt. She seems to be good at first, but after Warren's uncle leaves, she's not as she seems. Warren's family has a hidden treasure and Warren and his aunt are both on the look for it. But when things get a bit too harsh with Warren and his aunt, Warren sets out to find the treasure by himself. But what will happen to Warren? Read this nail-biting novel to find out! I would like to thank DOGObooks for supplying this book in exchange for this review.
