    callie_b's book review was featured in The Ickabog.
    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+.

    Nico has always been warned not to go into Still Cove. He and his friends Emma and Tyler have grown up hearing the stories and warnings of the Beast lurking in the uninviting waters. No one he knows has ever been down there, and no one wants to. But when the bully Logan pilots Nico's expensive new drone off a cliff into Still Cove's waters "accidentally," Nico ventures down into the unknown below, with Emma, Tyler, and possible new friend Opal following close behind. They discover a houseboat in the middle of Still Cove, which is docked on an island that they had no idea was there! The houseboat contains loads of cool things, but Emma finds a moving wall panel leading down to an forever-swirling pit of impossible shiny water, which they name the Darkdeep. When someone jumps in, the Darkdeep creates figments from your imagination, and its boundaries are limitless. The 4 friends soon realize something this big must be kept a secret. Curiosity leads them down the path of figuring out where the Darkdeep and the houseboat came from, and who came before? But soon the figments become out of control and dangerous, and they may even be closer to figuring out if the legend of the Beast is real... Can they save their town and keep the Darkdeep a secret? You definitely need to read this exciting and suspenseful series opener by Ally Condie and Brendan Reichs! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time with each chilling chapter and I loved every minute! I would totally recommend this book to anyone who enjoys adventure and mystery! I would rate this book 5/5 stars and recommend it for ages 9+!

    Imagine having your wildest dreams come true, everything fictional becomes non-fiction, but with that, so do your fears. This is the new life of Nico, Emma, Tyler, and Opal when they accidentally discover an unknown island with a dark (literally!) secret. The four friends, intrigued by the island, make it their mission to understand the impossible. But, fun soon turns to survival as they begin to notice the danger of it all. Can they survive their greatest fears? And can they save their beloved town from their own "darkness"?
