    Attention: All readers. If you haven't read Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Sea of  Monsters, by Rick Riordan what are you doing? Go read it! If you've already read it, good for  you. Now read it again. This book is more than you regular fantasy novel. Sure, it had monsters,  a Titan rising from the dead, and magical vitamins. But this book separated itself from other  fantasy novels. Most of the fantasy novels I read don't really tie down to reality. This is much  different.The Percy Jackson books are centered around a fantastical thought, however they all  have elements of realistic fiction. It's like combining your favorite realistic fiction novel, with a  bunch of Greek gods. I would give this book a 10/10. It was so amazing. My favorite part about  it was Percy’s relationships with all the villains. His attitude and jokes towards Luke really just  made me laugh. The book is basically about Percy, a middle schooler who happens to be a  demigod. After an accident in school, he flees to camp half blood. But they are under new  management, which causes things to be difficult for him. Percy and Annabeth evacuate, on a  quest to find Grover, and to get the Golden Fleece to heal Thalia's tree. You will enjoy this book  if you have read Harry Potter, or have a thirst for comedy and fantasy. However, I don't  recommend watching the movie. I felt the movie wasn't up to par with the book. Percy looked 18  not 13, and as did Annabeth.

    Rump     Not such a bad guy after all. Rump is a fictional book about the life of Rumpelstiltzkin. Rump  was written by Liesl Shurtliff, this book is also a Rebecca Caudill book of 2016. I loved this book. This book was so intriguing because there is one side of Rump that we never knew about, and we get to see that side. There's also quite a bit of a dilemma’s, some family issues and magic in this book. I would rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. This book takes place in a place called village. Village is nearby the mountains, past yonder and beyond. There is a king and fairies and witches and trolls. But Rump is a young boy with no father mother and an old sick grandmother. He is made fun of his name because his mother never told anybody what his full name was and he can never remember what it was so he goes by Rump. He only has one friend (sorta) named Red. Red sticks up for him when he gets picked on but she's not necessarily nice to him either. Rump finds the only part of his mother left, her spinning wheel. Rumps grandmother warned him about magic and so did Red but he didn't listen. He is lost on a journey to find his destiny, his family members and to get untangled and all the magic he has cause. He's become powerless over all the greed and the magic that has taken over him. This book gave me chills, every time I would read it felt like I was right there next to him, running with him, hiding with him. This book is so well descriptive. In a part of the book he is sitting down eating “sludge” with trolls he describes their smell, their actions, and how loud they are, it's like I could smell them when I was reading. I also found his book interesting because when I saw the movie ​Shrek Forever After​, and that movie Rumpelstiltskin is a mean greedy man, but when I read this book he was a nice young boy just looking to live life. This book really gave me a different perspective on Rumpelstiltskin. Liesl Shurtliff wrote two other books about the true story of fairytales. She wrote one about Jack in the beanstalk and she wrote one about red riding hood, but the red Riding hood book is not in stores yet. I have written 1 review before on Idogonews. This will be my second review. The type of reader that will enjoy this book would be ages 10+ because there is some strong vocabulary in this book.

    Have you ever wondered hair it was like if you ever knocked out your two front teeth? Then you may want to check out the book Smile by Raina Telgemeier. It is a realistic book and I with overall rate it five stars. The book starts off with the main character Raina knocking out her two front teeth and has to go through different orthodontist doctors. And takes through an adventure of feelings and friendships. All of this takes place in San Fransisco, California. In the book it states " It's okay, Honey... It's gonna be okay. My teeth!!! My tooth!!... We've got one tooth... Anybody find the other?" This shows how Raina shows how she knocked her two front teeth. Some background information about the author is from San Fransisco, California. She has written other booms like Sisters ,Drama and The Baby Sisters Club Book. The type of reader that would enjoy the book is someone who likes graphic novels and realistic fiction books.

    jcfertwig's book review was featured in Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters.
    I really loved this book. It flawlessly continued from the first book, leaving no hiccups for the reader to stumble apon. Both of the books started with Percy at a new school, and things are about to go horribly wrong. I found it creative how Riordan managed to intertwine Tyson's and Percy's lives. Also, I found it very interesting how Percy kept comparing himself to Luke. It gave the story a new twist. But, I didn't really like how quickly some of the battles passed. The first battle, at Percy's school, seemed to happen to rapidly and disorderly for me. Other than that, I don't really have any other compaints.
