    Matt, Corey, and Ruby are told never to go on public transport without their parents. Simple enough, until they are late for school and their parents have left in the middle of the night without a note. In a hurry, they race to the subway and end up getting on the wrong train. Like, really wrong. When they board, they discover that the odd subway car is actually a time-traveling, shape shifting ship. The three siblings meet an assortment of random characters aboard the ship, and travel throughout time, "saving" artifacts by stealing them, with the promise that they will be returned, safe and sound. They are told by the captain that they can return home at any time, but is he really on their side? It seems like it until some deeper secret is uncovered...

    This is the second book in the FunJungle series. If you love mysteries, you will love these books! It is definitely a page turner, and you won't want to put it down. I highly recommend this book (and all the books in this series)!

    watercolrwonder's book review was featured in The Giver (The Giver Quartet).
    This is a really interesting book. It is about a town of people in the future who have taken away any diversity, and everything in the community is planned and organized, from jobs to homes to food. No one has pain, and no one has any defects. They are a society that is perfect and remembers nothing of the past. But there is one person, the Giver. He remembers all the past. Rainbows, elephants, snow. Sledding. He is the one, the keeper of all the memories these people have chosen to let go of for the sake of feeling no pain. But one must keep these memories alive, and it's someone else's turn. Jonas is chosen to be the Giver-in-training. The Giver trains Jonas. He shares these raw and real memories of a past everyone has forgotten, memories of pain, like war, or happiness, like soft grass. Jonas slowly takes on the pain of each new memory, feeling each sunburn and gun shot physically. And with each new memory Jonas receives, the Giver loses them. This story is heavy and happy and forlorn and endearing. I would highly recommend it.

    This book is part of the Giver Quartet. It is a book full of perseverance and strength, and I love how it entwines with the other three books in this series. You will want to read this book over and over again.

    If you are looking for a good book to read on the beach or to flip through when you're board, this one would be great! It has interesting and encouraging stories of kid artists, and the illustrations are funny and creative. I really enjoyed it.

    If you want to be an author, this book is a good place to start. Each amazing author that everyone knows the name of was a kid once, with their own dreams and hopes. It is a good reminder that no matter where you are now, you can become something amazing!

    I actually won this book through DOGObooks, and I really enjoyed it! It is full of neat illustrations and stories of scientists from when they were kids, and how that helped them become who they were as adults. I would highly recommend this book!
