This book is pretty good. My favorite part is when Miskit comes out of his disguise. There is basically no problems with this book.

Theses books are very good. I’ve read every single one so far except the 7th one. The books are about a girl, named Emily, and her mom and dad in a truck driving down the road to go pick up her brother,Navin, and crased,and the dad died. So Navin, her mom, and Emily accidentally went into another dimension, because Emily’s mom was carried into it by a bug-looking thing, with a magical/powerful amulet. Will Emily save her mom? And will she help everyone in the dimension from the evil elves?

The book is interesting, My favorite Part of the book where they were getting the fruit that heals Emily’s Mom. I don’t like about the book is that the house isn’t built for battle. but the book is very exciting and wants me to read more of it!

Warning! Warning! This review contains a recommendation for the Amulet series. It has a lot of action and if you love graphic novels this is the series for you. Emily, the main character, finds an amulet that has magical powers.

You should read this book. It is full of action and suspense. This graphic novel has snails, robots, elves and humans. It is like no other. The main characters, Emily and Nate, are trying to save their mother from the king of elves.
Can they do it?
This book gets 5 out of 5 starts.

Pictionary with the Professionals

October 14th, 2014 by

Six artists. One sharpie. Many sheets of paper. Get ready for…


Last week, six graphic novelists gathered to play Pictionary at McNally Jackson Bookstore in New York City. The contestants:

  • Jarrett J. Krosoczka (Lunch Lady series, Platypus Police Squad series, Punk Farm series)
  • Raina Telgemeier (Smile, Drama, Sisters)
  • Kazu Kibuishi (Amulet series, the new Harry Potter book covers)
  • Sara Varon (Robot Dreams, Bake Sale, Odd Duck)
  • Frank Cammuso (The Misadventures of Salem Hyde series, The Knights of the Lunch Table series)

Left to Right: McNally Jackson Bookstore Bookseller & Pictionary Host, Sara Varon, Raina Telgemeier, and Jarret J. Krosoczka



Left to Right: Kazu Kibuishi, Frank Cammuso

We made sure to attend and get front-row seats so we could report back to our Kidsmomo readers. Okay, technically Nancy got a second-row seat and Karen was in the fifth row, but the space was pretty small, so we still got good views of the action.

The graphic novelists were first split into two teams. At first they guessed for their own teams, and eventually the crowd joined in! The answers were book titles, nouns, or common idioms. Can you guess what they are? (Click on the link below each picture to reveal the answer!)

I just read Amulet 3 the cloud searchers and i really liked it because i like graphic novels and i like all of Kazu Kibushis books. This is a graphic novel where Emily and Gavin go on an adventure with a fox a pilot and his friend along with Emilys mother and the elf prince to try to find Celis a flying city where everyone thinks it was destroyed, but you never know?My favorite part of the book was when it was over because it left me hooked to read the next book.If you like graphic novels and adventure books,then the whole amulet series is a good series for you.
