The Paper Magician

The Paper Magician is by Charlie N. Holmberg. The first installment in the Paper Magician series. Ceony has just graduated from the Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined; it's time for her to be bonded to her element. She dreams of being bonded to metal and what is she assigned - paper. She finds herself apprenticed to Magician Thane to learn a magic she never wanted to learn. Then a woman magically appears and steals Magician Thane's heart and it's up to Ceony to save her master. A delightful story set in late Victorian England, with a nice touch of gore.

Ratings: 8th grade - 9 out of 10 - V (mild violence).

Fun with Kirk and Spock: A Parody

Fun with Kirk and Spock: A Parody is by Robb Pearlman. If you have ever watched the original Star Trek, you MUST read this book. Think Star Trek meets Fun with Dick and Jane and Baby Sally and Spot. I laughed so hard! A wonderful introduction to parody and how funny it can be.

Ratings: 6th grade - 10 out of 10.
