5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful
I found this book for my little girl, after discovering a Dinosaur and Shark book for my son. It is so beautiful I sat in awe for about 30 minutes looking at it when I first received it. It's not Disney's Cinderella, so don't look for any comparisons. Instead, it is a beautiful story full of imaginative pop-ups that allow little girls to pretend they are in the story as Cinderella herself. My little girl (2 years) just loves to sit with me and my husband and flip through the story. Even my 3 year old boy loves to look at it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Cinderella:A Pop-Up Fairy Tale
A fabulous & fun pop up book with extra surprises on each page, in each corner.Bought as a gift for my niece (age 6) and she absolutely loved it!

5-0 out of 5 stars More than a pop-up
This is an exquisitely done work of art, with pop-ups that rival origami.I purchased it for my four year old granddaughter' birthday, but found that even at that age, supervision when reading (and care turning pages) is advisable.It is a book to be kept for years and handed down for generations.A great find and well worth the investment. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Indeed, the "fairest of them all"
Aza ins't just plain; she's plain ugly. In a land where song, grace, and beauty are prized, Aza's large stature (not just in heighth but also breadth) are deemed appalling and overshadow her amazing abilities in singing. Abandoned at the Featherbed Inn as a newborn, she is lovingly raised by her foster family. But their love can't oversome the low self-esteem Aza develops because of how other people treat her. When an unexpected chance to travel to court for a royal wedding comes, Aza is hesitant but goes to help her family. There, she is "befriended" by the new queen, Ivi, who is selfish and self-absorbed. Soon after the wedding, the king is severally injured and Ivi is claimed ruler in his place. Forcing Aza to use her unusual ability to project her voice for her own gains, the queen quickly becomes a dictator that threatens Aza's honor, her tenuous relationship with Prince Ijori (the king's nephew and heir), and the country in general. Can Aza overcome her own lack of self-assurance to save herself and her land?
5-0 out of 5 stars I was her Lark.

5-0 out of 5 stars delightful retelling of Snow White
As a newborn, Aza was left at the Featherbed Inn in the village of Amonta, Ayortha.Though a baby, she was singing, which brought her to the attention of the kind innkeepers Father and Mother, who raise her with love alongside their biological offspring.However, Aza is far from pretty so as to not disturb their customers; she remains hidden when the inn is open for business.

First of all, to the reviewer 3 reviews below me, JEEZ!!!!! Would it kill you to put a spoiler alert before the review. Well, thanx for spoiling it for me before I even finished it, idiot!
4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good
It was ok. I like Freak the Mighty better. You reallly get to like Rachel (Worm). And you really actually start to miss Kevin (Freak).

5-0 out of 5 stars Richie's Picks: AMERICAN BORN CHINESE
A surprising interweaving of Chinese myth and legend, prejudice and self-acceptance, and the coming of age of a first generation American-born boy of Chinese descent, make AMERICAN BORN CHINESE an exceptionally entertaining and thought-provoking graphic novel.
5-0 out of 5 stars National Book Award Nominee
This book was just nominated for the National Book Award.It is the first graphic novel EVER to be nominated.This is a testimony to Yang's gifts as an artist and especially as a storyteller.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Graphic Novel!
Three seemingly unconnected stories eventually intertwine in this masterful work about the loss and renewal of identity.Gene Yang deals with the issues of racism and identity with a graceful, seemingly effortless touch that results in an affirming, moving piece of art.Highly recommended. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The Education of Little Tree By: Forrest Carter
This book is about a boy orphaned very young who is adopted by his Cherokee Grandmother and half Cherokee Grandfather in the Appalachian Mountains of Tennesse during the Great Depression. He Grandparents named him Little Tree. He is taught how to hunt and survive the mountains the Cherokee way, taking only what is needed by his Grandfather. He is taught the joys of reading and education by his Grandmother. He also learns the way of white businessmen and tax collectors and how Grandfather scared the away. Little Tree is sent off to an indian boarding school run by whites. We learn of the cruelty of indian children. Little Tree learns how the world differs from the Cherokee way.
1-0 out of 5 stars The WORST book I ever recorded...
When I was first chosen to narrate this book, I knew nothing of the racist past of it's author -- I knew only that it was the single worst book I'd ever been assigned.The negative AudioFile Magazine review of my recording (quoted here on Amazon) is completely fair.Reading the book to myself in order to prepare to record it, I found it annoying in the extreme -- the so-called prose is precious and poorly written, and the allegedly authentic colloquialisms are grating.When it came time to say it all aloud, for the first time ever (and I've narrated upwards of 200 audiobooks) I found it impossible to invest this piece literary flotsam with any emotional content whatsoever.As declining the job was no longer an option, I merely tried to stay out of the way and give it as simple and logical a performance as I could, but I was unable to compensate for the God awful writing, and unable to disguise my contempt for the entire enterprise.It remains the worst recording I have ever done, and I was, for a time, quite ashamed of it.Now that I discover more about it's hate mongering author, I'm actually pleased that the recording stinks.I now believe I gave this garbage exactly the reading it deserved.(I must add that I learned a valuable lesson: never record a book you loathe.I was subsequently offered the execrable "Left Behind" series for young adults, but having suffered through "Little Tree," knew better than to lend my voice to the spewing of "Christian" hate.)

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
This book was assigned school reading.I found it rather boring and the language used in the story became annoying after a while.Not recommended. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Ultimates Is The Ultimate In Action, Story and Some Laughs!
After seeing the DVD's Ultimate Avengers and Ultimate Avengers 2, I decided to see the source material on which it was based on! I got to say that the original comics have the films (as good as they were) beat by a mile!
5-0 out of 5 stars A must for any ultimate title
This is a must for any Ultimate marvel fan. Seriously if your going to choose which title from the ultimate series to choose you should definetly get the Ultimates. In this hardcover it includes the first 13 issues of the ultimates. Personally I never liked the avengers but the ultimates them selves are more fun and entertaining to read, and seeing the hulk as a nut case is definetly worth it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Ultimates 1
This book includes all 13 issues of the ultimates 1, and while not as exciting and wild as Ultimates 2, it is still a good read and a great way to get into the ultimate universe. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Criss Cross
Criss Cross by Lenna Rae Perkins is a Newbery Award winnig book. i think that I really liked this book because it had a lot to do with friends and since i'm a social person then it was the right book for me. I rated this book a our because it had very good details as i was expexting from the author. i would recommened that you read this book if you're really patient with waiting on for the climax of the story to happen. it ahs a lot of great personalities mixed in with the characters. i thik that they all formed together to make the book really interesting. my favorite character of the book would have to be Jenny. Ithink that she was the best character out of all of the characters in the book. so if you have the patience to read a book and you're not worried about getting to the end, then i think that you'll havegood time with it. R.Copeland

4-0 out of 5 stars Good BUT Pointless
Criss Cross by Lynne Rae Perkins is the story of kids who travel down different paths in life while growing up. Debbie wishes something would happen. Hector tries new things. Lenny, Phil, and Patty kind of feel the same. It talks about people coming and going, crushes and such between the younger crowd. Some parts are boring. Others are confusing. Some parts are interesting and you'll want to know what happens next. But the book just keeps going on about these friends - which is pointless. I recommend reading it, however.

2-0 out of 5 stars A disappointment
Perhaps it's just me, but I read a lot of books, both for young readers and adults, and I have had a very difficult time getting into this book.The writing seems forced, rather than lyrical. And I can certainly see why young readers would feel distanced from the main characters.I will keep trying but so far this is a disappointment, especially for a Newbery award. ... Read more

I bought this after working for the federal government for 20 years!I was looking for a position after the agency I work for within the Department of Defense was BRAC'd.I needed some serious help in the KSA writing department.This book helped me tremendously.I breezed through the KSAs after reading what government managers are looking for in an applicant's KSA.Well worth the money.Oh, and I did get the job!

5-0 out of 5 stars Federal Resume Guidebook
I have this book as well as Ten Steps to a Federal Job.What a lifesaver.Who knew all the detail needed to get a federal job!These books are easy to digest, easy to follow, then they become a resource that I have used repeatedly.These books will take the fear out of the application process.In addition, a time saver is the "free" access to templates to help build the necessary documents. I used the template, and had a problem (turned out to be AOL as the problem).At 8am I wrote an email using the "contact us" tab on the web site the templates are located on.With-in fifteen minutes, the author herself (Kathryn K. Troutman) emailed me back and stayed with me until the issue was resolved.A short time later a technical support person contacted me by phone to make sure things were resolved.If that was not lightning fast, I do not know what is.A person whom I did not know recommended these books to me, now I am telling everyone I know (and don't know) about them!

5-0 out of 5 stars An Invaluable Book!
This book is wonderful! Whenever I have a very specific question, I can always pick this book up and refer to exactly what I need. With a federal resume, the devil is in the details, and this book can help negotiate over some of the pitfalls. Thanks! Laura, Apex Resumes,www.apexresumes.com ... Read more

Runaways, Volume 1 (Hardcover) is a collection of Runaways series one issues 1-18. If your a huge fan of Runaways this is a must have. If your a fan in general you will still enjoy this edition. I got this for $21-22 including shipping and I think it was worth every penny.
5-0 out of 5 stars An Enjoyable Comic
When reviewing something, I believe it is important to review both the manufacturing quality of the product and the artistic merit (I use this term very loosely because, of course, it is unfair to compare all products to Renaissance masterpieces).
3-0 out of 5 stars Tasty but not filling
Entertaining read but at the end you feel like you're not really "full", as if something's missing... Then again this is the first collection of comic books in this line so it might get better with time... I guess I compare any graphic novel I read to the all time greats in that genre (Watchmen, The Dark Knight Returns, The Killing Joke, Sandman, Preacher, Kingdom Come, et cetera ) - in comparison this book is pretty good but not on the level of the other titles I just mentioned. ...

I have got to say that is is one of the worst books I have ever read. I picked it to read off a summer reading list when i was 10 just because i liked the title. All it is, is a girl tries to save her brother when everyone is leaving their island, and they get left behiend. Spoiler ahead.
4-0 out of 5 stars Island of the Blue Dolphins/Movie
I've always loved this movie; I guess the main reason is, I'm a big lover of dogs and when I first viewed Island of the Blue Dolphins, it was the dog (in it)which grabbed my interest. Maybe he reminded me of Walt Disney's Old Yeller; guitly as charged. Loved that mutt, too. At any rate..

5-0 out of 5 stars Artemis Fowl
I myself am a huge fan of sci-fi fantasy. I like HP, Artemis Fowl, and others. So I'm not taking sides on HP vs. Artemis Fowl. I found this book enjoyable and a quick read. It was very different from what I expected, though. For instance, fairies are extremely technologically advanced. It's filled to the brim with excitement and adventure. Artemis captures LEP officer, Holly Short, and when she is freed, Artemis must escape the bio-bomb. I think that this is a good book for all ages.

3-0 out of 5 stars A little slow
After reading the Harry Potter series with my son, we decided to try this book. I was a little disappointed in the story and the pace.
5-0 out of 5 stars A fascinating tale
Artemis Fowl is an enthralling tale of a young boy, son of London underground criminal mastermind, trying to sustain his family fortune. By undergoing this quest, he must steal an ancient race's money: the fairies. He kidnaps one of LEP's greatest operatives, Holly Short, hostage.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I was looking for!!
I was looking for a child's dictionary and I had two choices picked out. The choices were this one and the Nick Dictionary which I thought my son would like much better but he chose this one. He likes it!! Yesterday hefinished his homework as fast as he could to look at it. Here are some thingsthat I like about it:(Nice) Colored pictures, Easy to understand definitions, Atlas pages, Information about the 50 states including the capital, state flag, flower, and state bird, Presidents of the united states to Clinton, The amount of words in this dictionary I think there are 33,000 words in here. I think this dictionary will last him for awhile. If you are looking for a child's dictionary I think this one would be the perfect choice!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars The best I've seen, by far.
I reviewed all the Children's Dictionaries I could find before selecting this one. It is a beautiful book. Word definitions are clear and easy to understand. Illustrations are colorful and plentiful. Supplementary information is useful and presented in an interesting format. This is one dictionary that is fun just to sit down and read! The CD ROM is also marvelous. My child loves playing the educational word games on it and so do it. There are several varieties of games and different levels of difficulty. The only drawback here is that the CD ROM cannot be used on Mac computers.

3-0 out of 5 stars Very good in some aspects but yet very bad in others
First off, this book offers one of the most wide ranged practice tests available for the SAT. This extensive amount of practice allows for a user to sufficiently prepare for the SAT; however, what makes this book so bad is that most of the tests that are given are hold KAPLAN tests. If u have bought 2005 or 2006 SAT Books from KAPLAN ud find the exact same problems and tests. Although most of the tests are the ame, the overall review for english and math is by far one of the best out there next to Princeton Review and Barrons. I recommend this book if u have never purchased a KAPLAN SAT book before or just 1, but if you have purchased a recent SAT book by KAPLAN i would ABSOLUTELY not recommend this book unless you want some of the same practice tests ...

3-0 out of 5 stars I'm of two minds on this one.
I am a big Inkling fan. I am the only one I know personally who has read Charles Williams. I have read the LOTR, Silmarillion, and other Tolkien works. I have read most of C. S. Lewis and paged through OHEL and Allegory of Love. I have read biographies of Tolkien and Williams and several biographies of Lewis. I was excited when I read about this book and immediately bought it. I haven't read "Young Adult" fiction for a long time so I'm not sure how this book measures up. The book is well paced and it has some interesting scenes. It steals creatively from Lewis, Tolkien and other fantasy writers. It reminds me most of a Williams novel, but Williams, confusing as he is, wrote far more interesting novels than this. Though, I admit I had a hard time putting this book down.
5-0 out of 5 stars Here There Be Dragons ... and a great story !
James A Owens' first book in the Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographics is a wonderful book. If you aren't one to normally read series books, give this one a chance. Mr. Owen has ingeniously layered history(WWI)with modern day myths(think the Loch Ness monster) fantasy(think Narnia and LotR) and even a bit of time travel(think ... well, just read the book).
5-0 out of 5 stars Soars to stratospheric heights
Here's some interesting news...this book has already been picked up by Warner Brothers, and Batman Begins screenwriter David Goyer and Harry Potter producer David Heyman will be the producers of this movie. Boy was that fast! There is good reason that Hollywood is interested in this, because it is a story filled with magic from the first to last page.

5-0 out of 5 stars The A-list, the guiltiest of guilty pleasures!!
I have read the A-list from the beginning and there is one main reason why it became one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Two Words: Sam Sharpe. This is my favorite character, I just love they way she developed, her approach to things, her cynicism that hides a very emotionally troubled young woman. She is the less cliched of all the four main characters (Anna...classy, prim and proper Hampton girl, yawn..., Cammie the uberbitch always on the verge of redeeming herself and Dee the real LosAngelino character, with all her ingenuity, incense sticks and sojourns in the loony bin). These stories, developments and characters are totally unreal, but hey people, this is FICTION! And meant to be FUN! The characters won't cover their heads in ashes, donate their money to the poor and join Mother Teresa's nuns...It is so exaggerated that it is fascinating for a European like yours truly...
2-0 out of 5 stars why is it dragging on and on and on?
i wonder if im reading the same book the others are reading. i'm on page 101 right now and it took me about 4 days to get this far. (i've gone through 3 clique books in a day, so it's not like i'm a slow reader) the book is just so boring. its like ive read all of this cr@p before! so far sam had a graduation party at her dad's yacht, we hear about 2 new characters from a rival school who happen to be enemies of sam and her group and conveniently enough the two schools do something together, i forget what but it looks like it will be the opportunity for sam to get her revenge for getting poop smeared on her white jeans a few years back (eye-roll). anna is incapable of taking care of herself at a time of crisis (her car gets rear ended by some cliche white trash woman) so her dad's 'dont judge a book by the cover cliche' tatooed but hot new intern comes to rescue her, omg romance! (another eye roll) ben is being a troll my guess is hes cheating on her, but seriously reading that chapter where they go on this really uncomfortable date just made me want to scream at the book! it was so annoying.
5-0 out of 5 stars I loved it
even though i love ben birnbaum i am soo happy anna leaves him hanging at the end of the novel because he thinks he can have sex with random girls but she cant even hang out with other men how typical but anne dont lead caine on.... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars PRETTIES
This book is just as exceptional as its predecessor, with thought-stirring ideas and perfectly placed plot twists to keep you reading until the last page is done. Now that Tally Youngblood is a pretty, she is living the high life with an avalanche of parties to attend; the hardest decision on her mind is what to wear to a costume party. Then a mysteriously familiar person gives her directions to a pouch containing something seemingly important. It takes all the wit her fuzzily pretty mind can manage to get it. When she does, she finds a letter written to herself from back when she was ugly. Along with it, she finds the cure described to her while with Maddy and David. In a last second decision, she and her newly-found boyfriend Zane split the pills. They both seem pretty much clear minded, even when Zane gets some headaches every few mornings. But when they escape to the New Smoke, Tally learns that something went terribly wrong. Another must-read with a cliff-hanger ending. Left me waiting in suspence for the final part in the trilogy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretties School Review
When a random boy comes up to Tally Youngblood and hands her a note, she thinks that he is crazy. Tally Youngblood is your average pretty, going to parties, getting drunk, and not thinking more ahead than the next form of entertainment. See, in Tally's town when you turn sixteen you receive an operation that turns you from an ugly(normal person) to a mindless pretty. While Tally was still an Ugly, she was at a rebel camp called New Smoke that had figured out the operation ad was trying to spread the word about brain lesions you develop after the pretty cosmetic surgery. Tally volunteered herself to try the pills that the New Smoke made to see if they got rid of the lesions, but after she became pretty, she forgot everything about her life as an ugly and the pills. So whenthe random boy comes up to Tally and gives her the note she wrote giving permission to take the pills, she is bewildered. With her boyfriend Zane, she goes to take the pills, but splits them with him so that they each get one. Slowly things start to become clearer and clearer to them, but Zane starts getting huge headaches and Special Circumstances Doctor Cable is on their trail to find out about the pills. Suddenly Shay, Tally's best friend, stops talking to Tally and is found cutting herself on the arm with a group of friends. When Zane's headaches get so bad that he can barely get out of bed, Tally plans a hot air balloon escape to find the New Smoke to cure him. When they reach the New Smoke doctor, she says that Zane took the pill that eats away the lesions and your brain, and Tally took the pill that gets rid of the things that eat away the lesions, so Zane has had things eating away at his brain for a month or two, and Tally has had nothing happen to her brain. On their way back, their hot air balloon is overtaken by Special Circumstances hoverboards flown by the Cutters, a new brand of Specials led by none other than Shay, who takes Tally to Doctor Cable where she too becomes a Cutter. This is a swift and exiting read that has a predictable but exiting plot and a futuristic setting.
