    colto101's book review was featured in Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Shatter Your Senses! (ANNUAL).
    The 2018 edition of Ripley's Believe It Or Not! is an AWESOME book! It has so many interesting (and some creepy!) facts. To start, the front of the book is just as cool as the inside. It caught my attention right away because of the "holographic" eyeball on the front. Inside, I learned about SO much stuff! For example, did you know a man trained a polar bear and he trusted it so much that he let it bite his head? And there is a lady who made her face look like a dragon's face? She has lots of tattoos, too. I got to see a photo of her in the book. I liked that there were a lot of cool photos. Also, I love Pokemon! I was so excited to see that there is a whole two pages of just Pokemon fun facts! I think this book is lots of fun for kids to read, but I liked sharing the facts with my parents and older siblings. It's cool to know facts about a lot of topics. I'd recommend checking this book out!

    This was a fairly good book, but I am not too into American Girl books. Lea wants to explore the world, and thinks she'll have a lot of fun! She starts off with a trip to Brazil, where her brother is studying the rainforest. She goes to several different places and then goes to the beach, but soon, she realizes that she might not have the courage to embrace the water and dive in! Will she be able to do it? And will her fun turn out to be a dangerous journey that she'll need to learn to embrace? Read this classic American Girl book today!

    August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial abnormality. The time has come for the bright, ten-year old to leave his safe, nonjudgmental world of being homeschooled, and time to start a new journey. However, this new journey will require the shy boy to face some problems he didn't face when he was in the safe hands of his parents, at home. Starting a new school is both dreadful and fearful for Auggie. But, can Auggie's new peers manage to see Auggie for what he is underneath? Or is he going to regret switching from being homeschooled? I'd recommend this book for any reader, but, specifically readers that like inspiring or uplifting endings.

    I love Geronimo Stilton novels. They are always fun and light-hearted, with the fonts and colors and pictures. I would love to win this book, and add it to my unfinished collection of this wonderful series with Geronimo Stilton, and all the other mice in New Mouse City on Mouse Island! Thank you DOGObooks for the wonderful opportunity to win such a fun book!

    WARNING: This review may have a few spoilers, please be cautious. I will warn you before the spoilers come for those that wish to read a review without spoilers. Stanley Yelnats IV (His last name is basically his first name spelled backwards, and yes, he is the fourth in his family to be named Stanley Yelnats) finds himself accused of a crime and lands himself at Camp Green Lake, where there is no lake (although there used to be one), and there is no green: it's all pretty much a desert filled with a lot of dirt. He finds that he has to dig holes every day, as wide and as deep as his shovel. (The holes are each pretty big) But, when he starts to discover the true reason behind why he and all his 'camp friends' have to dig holes, he starts to get in a bit of danger. There is some true history to the town, and some treasure to be found. (WARNING: This is the section with spoilers.) And, when he decides to run away from camp, things get even more dangerous. Will he even survive in the desert? Or will something else happen? Something truly miraculous? Or maybe he'll experience something adventurous? Read this nail-biting novel to find out! I have watched the movie based on the book BEFORE I read the novel, so, my review may not be a true review of the novel as much and may be more of a review based on the movie. However, this is my interpretation of the novel AFTER reading the novel.

    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!
