My Life as a 6th Grade Super Zero, review

Review from 13 year old son:
What I like about My Life As A 6th Grade Super Zero
 is the Perkins super power. 
His power is static electricity. My favorite part is when Theo
 says at the end of the book "And, I'm ...Static Shock!"
 That is my ultimate favorite part of the book. 
I would give this book five stars.
 I would recommend the book to kids
 of all ages who love super heroes. ~James.

Parent note- James read this book in under 24 hours. 
He very much enjoyed reading and had a lot of fun with it.
 I hope Peggy continues to extend her writing into Middle Grade 
or children reads. Kids need great inspirational authors to look up to and enjoy!

You can grab the book at: 
$2.99 eBook or $6.99 print

Book Review-True Colors, Krysten Lindsey Hager

I was offered to read this book for an honest review. My review is 5 stars. Krysten captures the teenage girl today. The struggles are real, the issues are something children have been dealing with since before I was a teen, and oddly-Krysten captures the readers! I was prepared for another "Mean Girls" story. This is NOT that. This is the real story of teenage girls! You watch Laundry flower into a young woman who finds out trust is an invaluable item to find, and friendships are hard to seek genuine realism in. You will learn about relationships with not just friends, but peers, boys, and others. The details put into the book will draw you, and make the story so much more realistic. Krysten expresses emotions beautifully through her writing, and the story flows flawlessly. I enjoyed the teenage "drama" because I knew going in, the book was geared toward middle grade readers. It will peak your child's attention, give them something to think about, and maybe even spark some hard discussions with their friends! Having a teenage boy, and working around preteen/teenagers of both genders I feel confident saying Krysten is sharing some beautiful TRUE COLORS! **MUST READ for those 10-15 year olds". Slide it under your Christmas tree today!

M.C. Arvanitis- Kidtales Holiday Book Fair Author!

Today we meet M.C. Arvanitis. 
M.C. writes several varieties of books,
however we are featuring two of her Middle Grades
in the Kidtales Holiday Book Fair! 
Ms. Arvanitis is a graduate of the Institute of Children's Literature 
and a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers. 
Her occupation as a preK and early grades teacher gives 
her insight into the stories children like to read. 
Now retired, she writes mid grade readers books 
she calls "fables." She brings mythical creatures such
 as fairies, elves, mermaids, pixies, and other strange 
beings to her stories. She now offers her first two 'fables' 
for Mid graders. "THE LEGEND OF ELPANDA PAWS," 
in both as e-books and in print books.
The first of Mrs Arvanitis's teen/YA historical
JOURNEY OF CHANGE; is now available as
 E-book and in print. This coming of age story
 takes place in 1855 and tells of a pioneer boy's
 conflict with his stern father on the Oregon Trail.
Two more of the Hank series will be added to her
 author's list in 2014:

Ms. Arvanitis is presently working on her third Fable,
 "PIXIES OF THE FERNS: FERNELLA'S MAGIC." to be out in 2014.
In the future she hopes to publish others of her picture
 books for the under six readers. These stories have
 been read and enjoyed by the thousands of students 
she has taught though out the years. First will be
 'CHICKEN IN THE OVEN', the saga of BFC who
 doesn't want to be Farmer's Dil's Sunday dinner.

For hundreds of years the Claus Corporation has contracted 
with the ELVanites to make Love Bears which are delivered to 
seriously ill children around the world. Only Elves with love
 and happiness in their hearts can make the bears properly 
-- insuring that each bear carries love and comfort for these children. 
Negative feelings are discouraged in ELVanland. 
Frowning, fussing, criticizing and crying are rarely seen or heard. 
The ELVanites know that these feelings bring on unhappiness and disease. 
From early childhood they are taught to push any sad feelings 
out of their thoughts by thinking happy thoughts instead.
ELVina, Head of Production, finds her elf workers suddenly 
afflicted with the negative disease, an illness that makes them slow and careless. 
They whine and break into tears at the least little happening.
"What is going on, ELVina?" Inspector ELMonte asks. 
"I have never seen so many unacceptable bears come from this factory. 
The work is sloppy and certainly will not meet Mr. Claus's standards."
ELVina blows her nose and hangs her head, unable to speak for a moment.
 She starts to cry. "I have been feeling depressed also.” 
"There, there, now." Inspector ELMonte places a comforting arm on her shoulder, 
"It will be all right. We'll work it out.”
But ELVina cannot be comforted. 
She knows that if the Love Bears are not made in time
 the Claus Corporation will not renew their contract for next year. 
No contract -- no work; no work -- no pay; the ELVanites will starve.
Worse yet, their reputation as bear makers will be ruined.
 Something is wrong in ELVanland. Something is terribly wrong!

Nadeea is shorter than the other Mermaids and finds life unbearable. 
She meets two fairies, Cassandra and Alex, 
and admires their beautiful wings. She wants wings 
for herself so she can escape from the teasing she 
receives from the other Mermaids. When Sir Cecil,
 the Snerg, promises to help her find wings she agrees 
to go on a long dangerous journey to Wyre, the home of 
the Damselflies. Sadie Squarette, a magic-making, 
bug-like poet, is their guide. They cross the Island of Egilssay 
where she meets Zasta, a Selkie, who becomes her best friend. 
There is danger in the island however. They must cross the
 land of the Trows where a mighty battle is going on between 
the Sea and Hill Trows. Trows not only kill each other, they 
kill anyone who crosses over their land. Sadie uses her unique
 magic to save them. Finally they reach the Island of Wyre 
where Nadeea hopes to get wings. She bravely faces Gwilon,
 the Goat Witch, and saves the queen of the Damselflies. 
When she learns that her Mer family has been captured by 
the dreaded Sea Lions and taken into slavery, she has to make a decision.
 Will she wait for her wings or leave with the Selkie Army to rescue her family?
