Reviewer Comments:

This collection of 5 books reviewed by Snoop is for ‘tween boys. For each novel, Snoop provides a great synopsis, the key points in the story, some vocabulary and good kid reviews. The books are: The Name of This Book is Secret, by Pseudonymous Bosch; The Fast and the Funniest, by Andy Behrens; Jacob Wonderbar and the Cosmis Space Kapow by Nathan Bransford; Cosmic, by Frank Cottrell Boyce; and The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angelberger. All appear to be quirky, fun, engaging reads – either action packed, silly and imaginative, relevant or just plain fun. This resource provides enough detailed “book talk” information to “sell” the books to any reluctant ‘tween reader.
