Book Review: Charlie Bone and the Castle of Mirrors (Children of the Red King, Book Four) by Jenny Nimmo
Book Reviews / September 2, 2005

As he begins his second year at Bloor’s Academy, Charlie finds himself floundering with confusion – like a first-year all over again! One of the reasons is that Manfred Bloor, late head boy, is back as a teaching assistant, and his equally nasty stooge, Asa Pike, has also returned (to repeat a year). Another reason has to do with the delicate balance among the handful of magically endowed students at Bloor’s, which has begun to …

Book Review: Charlie Bone and the Time Twister (Children of the Red King Book Two) by Jenny Nimmo
Book Reviews / September 2, 2005

In his second term at Bloor’s Academy, Charlie continues to develop his gift for finding trouble (and leading other kids – even older ones – into it as well). He also, by the way, develops his gift for talking with people in pictures. Unlike Harry Potter’s world, being able to chat with people in paintings isn’t a common magical gift! And unlike Hogwarts, Bloor’s isn’t a warm, safe place where a child can foil a Dark Lord in bet…

Book Review: Midnight for Charlie Bone (Children of the Red King, Book One) by Jenny Nimmo
Book Reviews / September 2, 2005

This popular series, which, as of this writing, runs four books strong, should appeal very strongly to Harry Potter fans. Its hero is a messy-haired little boy who never knew his father and who discovers at age 10 or 11 that he has a magical gift. As a result, Charlie is enrolled at a school where other “endowed” children study, eating at house tables below the staff at their head table, and sleeping in draughty dormitories. The…

Book Review: Black Water (Pendragon Book Five) by D.J. MacHale
Book Reviews / August 30, 2005

As the Pendragon series continues, the battle of Bobby Pendragon and his fellow Travelers against the time-and-space-hopping demon, Saint Dane, grows more and more intense. I hope I’m not going to ruin The Reality Bug for you right now but...well, there’s something about knowing that Bobby Pendragon can lose, and Saint Dane can win, that “ups the ante” on the suspense. Not only does Bobby’s imperfect record of wins vs. losses me…

Book Review: Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien
Book Reviews / August 24, 2005

The main character is Mrs. Frisby, a widowed field mouse who, with her two sons and two daughters, lives under a tree in a meadow in the summer, and inside a cinder block in a farmer's field in the winter. As the story opens, the time for moving out of their winter house approaches (when the frost…
