The Crabtree Monsters Blog Tour: Review and Prize Pack Giveaway

Could teens and tweens be better detectives than adults, including law enforcement professionals? If you've never considered the possibility, be prepared to be amazed by what you will find in The Crabtree Monsters, written by award-winning author Chris Wieland. Learn more about this first book in the Kat Dylan Mystery series and enter to win a signed copy along with a $50 gift card to Barnes & Noble!

My Review:

Revolving around tough teenage girl Kat Dylan and her ten-year-old brother Alec, The Crabtree Monsters is a captivating, action-packed mystery thriller spiced with brilliant humor that gets the readers chuckling. 

Still learning to cope with her parents' divorce, Kat is exasperated by the involuntary cross-country move to Crabtree, a small run-down town outside Chicago, where her uncongenial, rather estranged Grandpa Nick serves as police chief. Her plan to escape fails epically when she and Alec become victimized in a bank robbery. What's worse, their only legal guardian in town, is now accused of being the mastermind among the masked robbers. Determined to exonerate Grandpa Nick and find out the truth, Kat and Alec choose to conduct their own investigations, unexpectedly digging out Crabtree's sad secrets along the way.

The book fascinates me with its skillful storytelling and full-fledged characters. With Kat being the first-person narrator with limited or even biased information, the story is filled with twists and turns that are impossible to anticipate. The suspense and intensity of unforseeable events keep the reader on the edge of their seat. Given the author's expertise in filmmaking, the book is ready to be adapted into an enthralling action movie.

The main characters are multifaceted and well developed. Take Kat for instance. she is smart, sharp and strong, but suffers from a subtle sense of insecurity. Feeling abandoned by both parents and unable to make any new friends, she appears to be irritable, argumentative, defensive, and sometimes as dangerous as a ticking bomb that might go off at any instant. Her complicated personality reflects the impact of divorce on children as well as the parenting challenges associated with it.

The author also does a terrific job of bringing out the sibling dynamics of the intriguing sister-brother duo. They may poke fun at each other on a daily basis while they won't hesitate to risk their own lives for each other at times of crisis. Kat and Alec can't wait for their next case. Neither can mystery fans like me. Looking forward to the next book in the series!

Publisher: The Smart Aleck Press | ISBN-13: 9798985701302

Moving from Los Angeles to tiny Crabtree, Michigan, is the last thing thirteen-year-old Kat Dylan wants to do. Crabtree’s seen better days and isn’t what you call welcoming. Worse, the move means living with her gruff Grandpa Nick, the town’s police chief, and having to look after her little brother, Alec.

And that’s before Kat and Alec find themselves in the middle of a bank holdup by the Monster Gang—four robbers in monster masks. Before the heist is over, the kids lose their cash and Alec comes within a hair of losing his life. When it is all over, Grandpa Nick goes to jail, accused of being one of the robbers himself.

Suddenly, this boring little town isn’t so boring anymore. Kat’s determined to find out who the men are behind the masks, and she’s going to need help. But exposing the robbers could have big consequences. The deeper Kat goes, the more she learns life is about making choices, including some that are a matter of life and death.

About the Book:

Book Title: THE ELEGANT EMU (Adventures in Harmony) by Karen M. Bobos

The magical sisters are enrolled in an etiquette class when their manners are not fit for the king and queen of the enchanted land of Harmony. Can Elizabeth the Emu help the royal sisters?

In the beautiful and peaceful land of Harmony, three magical sisters, the Bobos Babes, uproot the kingdom's tranquility with some not-so-polite actions -nose-picking, belching, and other noisy...expulsions. Their parents, the King and Queen, enroll the sisters in the elegant Elizabeth the Emu's etiquette class where they learn manners and other ways to self-improve like being on time, politeness, and proper personal hygiene.

Elizabeth the Emu explains to Angel Scarlet, Princess Daphne, and Fairy Cora that having proper etiquette is more than good manners, it's about being kind and courteous. And for the sisters? Well, let's just say that they will be needing more than one lesson from Elizabeth the Emu's etiquette class.

My Review:

Like previous books in the series, The Elegant Emu is infused with well-thought-out rhymes, colorful illustrations and positive messages. Meanwhile, it is unique in that it reveals a rather mischievous side of the three magical sisters, who get caught engaging in behaviors considered inappropriate for a princess. Will the elegant Elizabeth the Emu, the master of etiquette, succeed in helping the girls improve their manners? What makes her frown and almost fall apart?

It is not very common for princesses to show their shortcomings in fairy tales. The rather bold move to expose the imperfections of the charming characters however, make them more real and relatable. Young readers may laugh and learn with the Bobos Babes through many amusingly familiar scenarios vividly depicted in the story. The book not only teaches about how to behave properly, including table manners, punctuality, politeness, and personal hygiene, but also explains why we should care about etiquette. It is a fun read that encourages children to be kind, considerate, and respectful.

My Review:

I was given the opportunity to watch the film before it hits the theaters. The 90-minute documentary impresses me as eye-opening and thought-provoking. By following the homeschooling journeys of different families across the nation, the film addresses the doubts and concerns about homeschooling, while demonstrating both the challenges and accomplishments associated with homeschooling. Most importantly, it explores all the great advantages of homeschooling - freedom, flexibility, diversity, customizability, and more. This more personalized approach to education allows students to learn at their own pace, to adjust their curriculum based on their interests and strengths, and to gain hands-on, real-life experience on things they are truly passionate about.

The authentic voices of the happy homeschoolers featured in the film not only help refute common misconceptions about homeschooling, but also help parents become more confident about their ability to cultivate the love for learning. Parents are their children's first teachers and can be their best ones too! The Homeschool Awakening would be most inspiring and reassuring for parents who find formal education a poor fit for their children, but are not entirely sure if homeschooling offers a better alternative or how to make it work.
