JD seems to have a bit too much fun mixing the tropes of the detective pulp, scooby-doo, and tech thrillers. It excites the nerd in me when I can pick up on clues but have them be obfuscated enough that the mystery is preserved. Constantly wondering which of the amusement park owners were under the sheet, but never discounting the idea that its really a fantasy with a goast.

I also appreciate that I was sent to my computer to find out if the "pilfer" command worked.

A Ghostly Christmas Present

Though I would like to know what JD has against my home town, it doesn't rain that much in Seattle. I jumped into this book as soon as I finished the first one. This book had be guessing all the way through! I love that you can tell Sawyer has a secondary love affair with audio visuals, and I appreciate the amount of research that goes into the stories!

You can tell he hasn't spent a ton of time in the Seattle area during winter, but that is offset by the fact that you can tell how much he loves the bay area. A quick read, definitely worth your time and sets up for some very interesting plot points in future books! I can't wait to learn more!

Available: Used. Anne Rockwell once again presents an accessible text aimed at preschoolers and kindergarteners. The same class that appeared in Show and Tel l Day , also a collaboration with her daughter Lizzy, is now preparing for the school Halloween parade. The illustrations are colorful, with a gentle humor, and complement the text well. The illustrations are a dead giveaway that readers should expect a tickle to the funny bone. There is a lot to see in the illustrations for those readers who really want to take the time to look.

But the illustrations are just part of what makes the story work. Halloween Night will probably be most appreciated by kids in grades Review b y Kirsten Kowalewski. Hassan, illustrated by Betsy Bowen. Dhegdeer is a monstrous cannibal woman endowed with incredible strength, speed, and hearing, whose evil ways have cursed the lush Hargrega Valley in Somalia, turning it into a desert wasteland. She builds a hut next to her house to lure and trap unwary travelers needing shelter and water, and enspells Bowdheer, a jar in which she stores human flesh, to alert her if anyone touches it.

As she looks for food for the weary travelers, she accidentally bumps into Bowdheer, who wakes a very hungry Dhegdeer. Dhegdeer is a character from Somali folklore used to scare children into good behavior. Vivid colors are painted in broad strokes over black gesso, giving the illustrations a shadowy feel. While figures are outlined in black, they are indistinct.

No child would want to see that face in person!

J. Daniel Sawyer Book List - FictionDB

Highly recommended for folktale collections in the public library and in elementary and middle school library media centers. Mirrorstone, ISBN: A Practical Guide to Vampires presents itself as a nonfiction handbook compiled by a vampire hunter and enthusiast. The author describes their habits and haunts, and gives advice to the reader on how to track and hunt vampires, and survive to tell the story. The pages look yellowed and stained, and there are handwritten notes throughout.

A Practical Guide to Vampires is visually impressive. The illustrations are beautifully done and dynamic in nature, and will capture the attention of even reluctant readers. Interest in this book is not limited to kids, though. Adults with interest in vampires may also like it, and will note some dry humor that more literal minded kids will miss, as well as an oblique reference to Twilight. A Practical Guide to Vampires works just fine as a stand alone title, a handsome and compelling addition to the growing collection of handbooks to the supernatural. Highly recommended for elementary and middle school library media centers and general public library collections.

Contains: references to blood-drinking.

Stargazer Publishing, This book has it all- secret tunnels and talking animals, mad science and real monsters. This is the perfect Halloween themed book for in class reading in elementary schools and early middle schools. Equal parts scary, mysterious, gross and silly, it's pure fun.

ROBLOX's scariest mystery IS ANGRY WITH ME...

It's definitely recommended for all collections aimed at fostering a love of reading. Green Dragon Codex by R.

Scamp is one of the smaller boys in his town, and has always been picked on by the larger boys. He has learned to be quick to run and light of foot when the bullies are about. Then comes the fateful day when Scamp flees from the bullies into the darker parts of the forest, and comes across a chest laying next to the body of a large, dead, green dragon. What is contained within the chest will take him on an adventure where he will encounter tragedy, magic, dwarves, dragons, daemons and a race more ancient then humankind.

They meet with strange and often scary things along the way.

What is Kobo Super Points?

They learn that being family means being there for one another when you really need it, to trust in themselves and that perhaps nothing is "born" evil. Can they save all of Krynn before the strange black hooded, red-eyed mage gets what he wants? This is a YA book, though it is entertaining enough for adults. Most adults will find the characters rather thin but still amusing.

Green Dragon Codex is good for the 12 and up crew, and a nice introduction to fantasy for the younger generation. Contains: some mild violence, evil plots and plans, ADHD behavior saves the day. Brass Dragon Codex by R.

This is a very simple and straightforward tale of friendship, what it takes to be a friend, and how to have friends you have to make sure that first of all YOU are a good friend. Our story starts with a young Brass Dragon discovering that his parents have been done in by an evil Blue dragon. The little dragon is lonely and unhappy now that he is living alone and looks high and low for a friend. Meanwhile a little gnome gets himself kicked out of the city for an invention gone wrong - but he has an even better idea, if only people would listen to him.

The dragon and gnome cross paths in the desert and learn the truth about friendship while helping each other to reach their goals. It's a really sweet story that many will enjoy. For the adults, there may be a bit lacking in the character department, but I handed this book off to my 11 year old son and it seems to be right up his alley. I would recommend this for the 10 and up crew depending on their reading ability. For those concerned about violence - the Brass Dragon's parents are killed, and there is a bit of violence, though none of it is overly gory.

I would not give this to my 7 year old, but the middle school group should be fine. Something strange is going on at 56 Water Street. Derek and Ravine see the lights turning on and off and find out that they are the only ones who can actually see the house: to everyone else it is just an empty lot. When they work up the courage to go into the house, they find out that the ghost of a teenaged girl in the house has made it visible because she wants their attention Strangway has created a believable world using simple and accessible language that is also creatively descriptive.

Her characters are of the brave, mischievous kind that kids will identify with and love. At times, the writing is repetitious from chapter to chapter, but rather than being a detriment to the story, this makes it ideal as a chapter-a-night ghost story for the year old range. Those anxious to find out what happens need not worry, however, as 56 Water Street is a quick read at pages. Recommended for public libraries, particularly those wishing to acquire more titles by Canadian authors.

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. Nobody Bod Owens is, in most respects, your average kid, except that he lives in a graveyard. After his parents and sister are murdered when he is just a toddler, he is adopted by ghosts in a cemetery near his home and is given a rare gift: the Freedom of the Graveyard, which allows him to do many of the same things as the ghosts, including walking through walls.
