    Babymouse was a nice book to read. It's about the titular Babymouse, most popular for her graphic novels about her in elementary school, taking on middle school. She talks about how she wants to stand out in middle school but doesn't know how. Then, she joins the film club with all of her friends. She becomes the director of the movie that will debut at the middle school later on in the year. She takes on difficult tasks, like her diva actress or the insufficient setting, to make the movie of her dreams. But when she starts acting like a diva, her movie falls apart. She tries to save the movie, but she's not sure how. This book has good themes but the ending wasn't satisfying.

    Rump is quite a remarkable book and is loosely based on the author's struggles. It's about a boy, Rump, living in the gold-mining part of a kingdom. He doesn't know much about his family history, due to his grandmother never really telling him. He doesn't even know his whole name, only that it begins with "rump", and that makes him a target of bullying. But when his grandmother dies, he is pushed to the edge. He learns of his magical powers to spin straw into gold, and he goes on an incredible adventure. He faces many obstacles over the period of a year, but he ends up with a satisfying conclusion. This book was great and it tells the amazing story of Rumpelstiltskin, some of which was never included in the original (or boring) versions.

    snicker9's book review was featured in Book Scavenger (The Book Scavenger series).
    Emily and her family have been moving across the United States for most of her life. Her parents have the goal of living in all 50 states, and so they rarely live in one place for more than a few months. Now Emily, her brother Matthew and their parents are moving to San Francisco where Emily's "literary idol", Garrison Griswold (also known as the Willy Wonka of the literary world), lives. Griswold, among other endeavours, created the Book Scavenger (an game where people find books hidden in cities by using clues and puzzles. Unfortunately, just weeks before Garrison plans on launching a new game, he is attacked and hospitalized with a coma. Then Emily (and her new friend James) find an interesting book, which Emily is sure is part of Griswold's new game. But it turns out that solving this mystery is more dangerous than they thought. I really enjoyed this book. There was mystery and intrigue, and it was a true book adventure. I enjoyed watching Emily and James' friendship develop, especially since having a friend was really a new experience for Emily. I would recommend this book to middle school aged kids and above, especially mystery lovers. I think that people who enjoyed "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library" would enjoy this book as well. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

    The Bad Guys was a nice, quick read. It's about a wolf, a shark, a snake, and a piranha. They are all commonly known to be bad guys because of what they did in the past. The wolf wants to change that and make them heroes, but the others aren't so willing. But once they rescue someone, they realize that it feels good to be good. This book has great themes and is a very quick read. This book is great for young children.

    The Fourteenth Goldfish is a nice book. It's about a middle-school girl named Ellie, whose grandfather turns himself into a kid. He lives with his daughter and granddaughter, who are Ellie and her mom, and tries to figure out how to continue his research while attending a modern middle school. Problems arise when his I.D. to his science lab is blocked and he gets detention for not using a hall pass. He struggles to fit in as the average middle-school child because he doesn't try to. This book doesn't have the intricate details or character developments that would normally come with such a complex plot, so I believe that younger children will be more entertained by this than older kids.
