Boomtown is a lovely book with a little bit of suspense,humor,and mystery this book hits the mark. It starts of with Rev. Button narrating everything in his life when he starts a pastoring job in the town of Boomtown. Stuff start disappearing and Rev. Button gets caught in the middle of it. I like this book because of the way everybody is strange and wonderful. Everybody love to blow stuff up. With the mysteries history of Boomtown and their founder Chang. The mysteries of what Rev. Button's son is up to. The people of Boomtown is in for a surprise and the trial of the century. I give Boomtown Book One: Chang's Fireworks Factory by Nowen N. Particular a five out of five.
I recommend it for the ages 10 and up.

This one of the greatest fantasy stories of all time to me. This book is about a boy named Aidan Thomas who enters a world that is at war and he becomes the twelfth knight. There are great battles and fierce enemies. Aidan learns some important lessons. I like this book because of the references to God and the bible. It has great writing and dialog. It is one of the best book for any kid who likes fantasy, christian books. I give The Door Within by Wayne Thomas Batson a five out of five.
I recommend it for ages 10 and up.
See you in the funny pages (and remember never alone).
This is Garfield's look about movies and movie genres. From crime movies to silent movies he covers them all. He also puts his own parodies to them like Furry Potter or Gar Trek. He right some movies and he talks about some of them two. I like this book because is tells movies from a cat point of view and I like Garfield comics. I recommend Lights, Camera, Hairballs!: Garfield at the Movies by Jim Davis for ages 10 and up and I give it a 5 out of 5
So grab your popcorn and I'll see you in the funny pages

This is a new bible from Tyndale and NEXT. This Bible is for people who do not like to read the Bible but like to read manga or just comics. Manga is a style of comic book, and is pronounced mong-ga. It is the second most popular style of comic in the world, which would make this Bible very appealing.
It has three different comics. The first comic is about the story of Creation and tells about the father of Isaac. The next manga is about Joseph and talks about the Bible up until the prophet Isaiah appears. Finally, the last comic is all about Jesus.
Each one tells a little about the bible. Each comic whets their appetite and gives just enough to hopefully make them want to read it. This Bible reads well and it is written in the New Living Translation. Some people think this translation is much easier to read, and it’s a good translation for people who are just beginning to read the Bible.
I sure like it and I think it is great. It is for 8 to 80 and beyond. I give The Manga Bible by Tyndale NEXT a 5 out of 5
See you in the funny pages!
