Now that I have a beauty tab going from this blog now, I have decided to move the children's book section to under the book review sections. If you have any questions use the contact form below, on the side bar or the one on the main page. Thank you
Wow, I am late with this review. Moving is such a hassle I'm sorry every one. Anyway to the review.
Jack Black is thrilled when his father, the captain of the largest airship in the world, invites him on the ship’s maiden voyage. Once aloft, Jack overhears a plot to sabotage the ship. But before he can tell his father, Jack falls, plummeting through the air to be caught in the sails of a pirate ship. Now Jack must try to convince a crew of thieves to rescue his father. . .
Okay I came into this book thinking it was going to be similar to 'Treasure Island' but it is not even close. This book is fast paced and can be confusing in some places if you are not paying attention. The book is simply worded and written, there are no big words used. The main character Jack Black is a sarcastic, amusing, teenage boy, that has a great number of adventures after he falls off of his father's airship.
I think this book is an enjoyable read and I wonder if it is intended to be steam punk or not. I recommend this to children 8 and up it is a very easy read and shouldn't be to hard to read.
I will see you soon with 'The Lovely Bones'.
I am stressed out. I am moving on June 9th and this week is finals week. I can't wait for summer. Anyway I bought this book a couple a months ago from a local bookstore and just read it.
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. And a strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children who once lived here—one of whom was his own grandfather—were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a desolate island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.
Wow, this book will take you on a wild goose chase. I originally bought it thinking it was a horror books because of the creepy pictures in it but it is actually more of a suspense/mystery book. The main character is a sarcastic little man and he makes everything seem lighter than it actually is. Within the first two chapters someone is dead and the real adventure begins. It is a little fast paced but not so much that you can't understand what is going on.
I recommend this book to anyone old enough to watch a good horror movie and not be scared. So, if you are faint-hearted don't read this book.
