    51klpghnpvl._sl160_When I first started this book, I didn't have high expectations. But I was entertained and intrigued throughout for the most part. It was nice to see a character who is unlucky, yet very optimistic. Warren the 13th, an orphan who is the bellhop at his family hotel, has lately been feeling terrible, which was rare, ever since his Aunt Anaconda took over the hotel. Soon, Warren realizes that his Aunt, and the hotel, isn't as it seems. He sets out to find a myserious treasure before Anaconda or the faculty does if he wants to save the family and hotel. If you like the sound of this story, entertaining illustrations, and are around the middle school age, this book is for you.

I was a little bored at times because this kind of book isn't my thing personally, but if you like the sound of this story, entertaining illustrations, and are around the middle school age, this book is for you.

    bigmelo liked a comment in Nemo's Garden Takes Farming To The Next Frontier - Underwater!.
    Nemo2-smallThis amazes me - medical science, technology, and really, science as a whole is just advancing really fast these days! On a completely different topic, I feel bad when the earth explodes 5 billion years later, because what if the remaining humans (if there are any) are on this other spacecraft and what if they're too busy trying to escape the rays of the sun that they don't see the earth die? All that history, all the advances on science.. and what if no one ever saw it go? (And yes, this is a 9th Doctor reference) but on a completely different note, I think everyone should just keep swimming because if plants can grow underwater, what else can humans achieve?

I mean, I've only gone on two vacations in all my years! It does get a little awkward. Anyways, here's the thing - I've never been on a sleepover, let alone a play-date before. Also, I've never gone camping or had s'mores! Additionally, I've never tried pillow fighting either... As sad as the subject is, I have led myself to believe that my life is a tad bit boring. :P Well, I guess there's other things, like school & sports to look forward to. Oh, boy. Am I the only one; by the way, who noticed that most of the sentences in this particular comment, including this one, start with the letter 'a'?

    Robbie-maddison-pipe-dream-moto-surfing-960-smallWell, there's something you don't see everyday! Speaking of that, I've never gone surfing & I've only been to the beach once. Can anyone tell me what it's like? :)

    Robbie-maddison-pipe-dream-moto-surfing-960-smallI also find it semi-humorous how my reply is longer than my comment itself. Boy, am I strange or what? :D
