Monday Children’s Book Reviews for December 3, 2012

Oliver by Judith Rossell

“Aspiring inventor Oliver is constantly asking questions to learn how things work, so when his mother cannot explain the gurgling noise coming from the bathtub drain, he builds a submarine, ventures down the drain and embarks on an imaginative journey.”               [JPB ROSSELL]

Robbie Forester and the Outlaws of Sherwood St.   by Peter Abrahams

“Robbie Forester always knew life wasn’t fair, but she never thought she could do anything about it. Until one day a powerful charm comes into her possession, a charm that guides her, her three friends, and her dog Pendleton on the path to justice. But the charm doesn’t seem to understand that the path has gotten dangerous, and Robbie and her friends find themselves in a menacing world of thievery, arson, big yachts, and even bigger bank accounts. Will Robbie and her band of thieves end up in more trouble than they ever could have imagined? Edgar Award-winning novelist Peter Abrahams weaves a tale of action, adventure, danger, and magic that keeps readers on the edge of their seats, guessing at every turn.” A new series for middle graders.                    [J ABRAHAMS]

Ninjago, Masters of Spinjitzu Character Encyclopedia by Claire Sipi

“Sensei Wu’s ninjas may work together, but they are actually all very different and unique. Little ninjas everywhere can now learn everything there is to know about their favorite Masters of Spinjitzu in DK’s LEGO® Ninjago: Character Encyclopedia.

“Each beautifully illustrated spread features tons of fun facts on the different characters, variants of each minifigure, and the various vehicles, weapons, and locations that make up the LEGO Ninjago world.”                                     [J688.725 SIPI]
