OK, this is going to take a while and I hope you read to the end of the post. I have 47 reviews for you today. My fingers are a bit tired from typing so I am sorry if I spelledsome words rong.
Here we go…
April fools! I only have two reviews. 😉
Lotto Lewis and his siblings, Armond and Riley, were amazed when they met their late mother’s “fabled” (and rich) Cousin Baxter. The Lewis’ get to know each other well and soon they’re asked if they want to travel with him around the country (and a bit of Canada) to visit National Parks over the summer. Baxter gives them a challenge too – to find words and unscramble them to form a sentence (if they do that, they get to have one thing for completing it, as long as it is within reason) and a clue to find the next park to go to. Along the way, Lotto realizes someone doesn’t want them to find the clues and is trying to stop them!
This was a GREAT book! I love the action and fantasy (there is some magic) in it! There was one swear word used once – the main character says ‘He** no!’ and again, it is only said once. The story plot is unique and it is written well. The cover is nice, and there are photos of some of the places they visit in the book made so they look sort of like a scrapbook. Lotto is a cool, modern boy. I like that he is a very realistic character. I liked learning about the parks that they visit! I think kids 10+ would enjoy this book.

**UPDATE! Ms. Ferrigan just sent me the awesome new cover for her book! Check it out –
The cats of the Katz household have a dilemma. The mayor of their town wants to destroy all the cats at the rescue home because they have a TERRIBLE disease known as “catatonic flu” . The Katz’s cats and the Katz family need to stop the cat-hating mayor and prove that the cats at the rescue home really aren’t sick.
This was an interesting book. The cat characters were a lot like humans (but they didn’t talk to the humans). I like the action in the story. The character’s were realistic (maybe too much), and there was a LOT of romance between the cats (maybe a bit too much for me as a boy). The writing was good and the plot was good too (sometimes a bit predictable, but still good). There was one “oh gawd”. The cover art is excellent and there are great illustrations of the characters in the book. I think kids 10+ would like this book.
