    Have you ever heard of Harry Houdini, the most famous magician and escape artist ever? 11-year-old boy Harry Mancini has always been fascinated with Houdini's life and tricks, especially because he lives in the same home that Houdini lived in New York City, and even his name sounds like Houdini's! But Harry Mancini never thought he would ever communicate with Houdini, especially because Houdini died in the 1920s... After Harry Mancini wakes up from a coma following an accident near the train tracks, he finds a mysterious box amidst the towers of flowers and candy, and it holds an old flip phone that doesn't even seem to work. But when Harry Mancini gets home that night, it begins to buzz and he gets a text from Harry Houdini himself! He doesn't believe it until Houdini offers to perform his most mind-boggling act, Metamorphisis-- but between Harry Mancini and Houdini! He wants to attempt his biggest trick ever-- to switch bodies from the dead! This book was so entertaining and I couldn't stop reading! If you're curious about how Houdini did some of his most puzzling tricks, you should definitely read this book! I personally have always been super interested in Houdini and have even read some other books about him, but I still learned new things about Houdini from this book! I had no idea what was going to happen next and it kept me turning the pages into suspense and a crazy plot twist! I would recommend this book to ages 10+!

    Hello! So, I'm turning a comic I wrote as a child into a novel, and here's a preview: "Ralph took a deep breath, then closed his eyes, but only for a moment. He then thrust his arms into the air and yelled, “Urgon!”. When he opened his eyes again, Rudy noticed something. Something upsetting. Something peculiar. Something like she’d never seen before in her entire time on this planet. Ralph's eyes had changed. Where his iris and pupil once were, was a horizontal line. Like a frogs’ eye, only it belonged to a human. Rudy was astonished. She could not believe what she was seeing. She let out a gasp, that was louder than she intended it to be. Ralph heard her and let out a small grunt. He put his hand up to his ear. Rudy covered her mouth with her hands. Her heart was pounding inside her chest. Beating 100 miles per hour. Buh-boom. Buh-boom. Buh-boom. Rudy’s instincts were telling her to do one thing. It was to get out of there. And fast." Any feedback?

    The story of the Ickabog shows just how quickly a little lie can turn into a never-ending deception. In Cornucopia, each part of the kingdom is known for having a specialty food that they are the best at making, like cheeses or pastries. Best friends Daisy and Bert have heard the rumors and legend of the Ickabog, a massive monster that eats people, but they always knew they were just stories... or were they? When a shepherd from the Marshlands, a far out and rural part of the kingdom, says the Ickabog ate his dog, ruler King Fred the Fearless doesn't believe him at first. Fred thinks going to investigate the Ickabog would be the perfect opportunity to prove that he could be a good king with no risk after people had begun to call him selfish, vain, and cruel, since the Ickabog was only a myth... right? His advisors Spittleworth and Flapoon concoct a story of lies after an accident on the journey about encountering the real Ickabog with King Fred saving the day, and it spreads through Cornucopia faster than Bert can eat a Hopes-of-Heaven pastry. Taxes and defense brigades are put in place to help protect from the supposed Ickabog, even though Spittleworth knows he made it all up, and the only thing the defense brigade taxes were helping was the flow of money into his pockets. Daisy and Bert are determined to thwart Spittleworth after learning some shocking information, and they are ready to do whatever it takes to restore peace to the kingdom. But Spittleworth is dangerous, threatening to kill and imprison their families if they don't stay quiet. It's a battle of the wits to determine who will come out on top. This book was AMAZING! I love a good fairytale, and this book did not disappoint! J.K. Rowling worked her magic again into this page-turner that will keep your imagination running. The suspense, adventure, plot-twists and complex characters really made this book enjoyable, and I loved every minute of it. I was transported into a magical world with endless possibilities as I read this book! The colorful illustrations made by kids throughout the book were the cherry on top! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone in need of a great fairytale, and I would recommend it for ages 8+.
