1. March Madness Monday (Guys Love the Treasure Island Play!)

It's Monday again but no blue Monday this week. We've got new Slam Dunks and you'll see that two guys have reviewed the Children's Theatre of Charlotte's production of Treasure Island. Those two guys also happen to be Michael and AXEL SIMONE. The first one to appraoch the basket is Michael:

Treasure Island: The Theatrical Drama
playing at Imaginon

When Jim Hawkins' father dies, he is put in charge of his mother's inn. But one day a very strange man named Billy Bones comes in. When Jim is put in possesion of a valuable map taking him to an island filled with treasure, he must avoid evil pirates, and he must be careful of whom he chooses as friends.I loved the play! It's a fast-paced story, and there's no waiting for the next scene to be put up because they make it part of the show. You won't get bored with this, and I guarantee you'll love it too!

Flight, Volume 1
In this great comic book about things that fly, there are a myriad of different stories both adventurous and humorous as many cartoonists band together to create Flight, Volume 1! Some of the more popular cartoonists are Kazu Kabushui, Kean Soo, and Jeff Smith. Amazing!

Right behind Michael is AXEL SIMONE:


Next in line is Dakota T:

The next book that I'm reviewing is The London Eye Mystery. This is another mystery book that made me really have to think. This is about a brother and sister whose cousin comes for a visit. When they show him around and take him to the London Eye, he gets on. Thirty minutes later, the doors open and everybody comes out, except for their cousin. This is a great mystery for all ages and it puts your mind to the test. I really enjoyed it and would read it again.

I just finished the book The Phantom Tollbooth and it was amazing! Some parts were strange but overall it really hooked me. It was about a boy who finds a toll booth in his house with two coins. When he put one in he was lead to a magical place that had an interesting history. He eventually runs into a dog named Tock that had a clock in his belly area. He takes him to Dictionapolis where he goes from there on his quest to free Rhyme and Reason. But he has to go through an adventurous journey and many 'demons' to which are guarding the tower in which Rhyme and Reason are locked inside. Overall this book deserves a nine out of ten for its high action.

And finally Brian B comes to the line:

I'm reviewing No Arm In Left Field by Matt Christopher. Terry Delaney wants to play baseball with the local team but will his skin color make a difference? This is a great book, and it shows that skin color doesn't matter.

Swish!! Thanks, everyone! I agree with Dakota T about The Phantom Tollbooth. One of the funniest and most action-packed stories ever, especially if you like puns. I heard a great audiobook version of it--see my review here.This Fli

2. Readin', Readin', Readin'--Rawhide!!!!!

Hello, all you Cowpokes out there in The Land of Blog, it's me Bad Bart Bill!!!!!! The shooten-ist, ropin'-ist, cattle-stealingest bandito south of the Mason-Dixon Line!!!!! Yep, I'm a fairly dangerous character ifin ya get my drift!!!!!! If ya want to see me in action, check out this little trailer here (I'm the guy with the cigar and poncho. Also I go by another name; Clint Eastwood).

Pretty Cool Right!!!!!! I'm a Good/Bad Man and ifin ya say different, get ready to draw Pilgrim!!!!!!

And now for some book reviews:

Lions, Tigers and Bears (Volume 1): Fear and Pride – Joey and his mother are moving out of his Grandmother’s house. Joey is afraid because he knows there are monsters underneath beds and hiding in closets and without his Grandmother’s presence, he knows that they will get him. Fortunately for Joey, his Grandmother knows these things to be real also. As a going away present, she gives him a package with four stuffed animals called The Night Pride. The Night Pride consists of Pallo - Leader of the Pack (a Lion), Venus – Guardian of the Pride (a Bengal Tiger), Minerva – Huntress of the Shadows (a Black Panther) and Aries – Warrior of the Night (a Siberian Tiger). These stuffed animals come to life whenever a child is in danger from Evil Beasties that come out in the night. One night, from out of his new closet in his new bedroom, two Evil Beasties, Mumbler and Grumbler, attack and Joey’s Night Pride comes to full-blown life to defend him. When the fight is over, Joey finds himself in the world where stuffed animals are real all the time. This is just the beginning of a wonderful book that is really great fun and promises further volumes in the near future.

Star Wars: The Last of The Jedi – The Desperate Mission by Jude Watson – This is the first book in “The Last of The Jedi” Series. The Clone Wars are over and Emperor Palpatine along with Darth Vader rule supreme. The Jedi are all but extinct, having either been betrayed by the deadly Order 66 and killed by the very Republic Clone Troopers under their command, or hunted down and killed by Lord Vader. Obi-Wan is one of the few Jedi remaining alive and his mission is to ensure that young Luke, who is being raised on Tatooine by his Aunt and Uncle, is kept safe from the Empire until he is of age to make a difference in the future. While on Tatooine caring out this duty, he hears that an old acquaintance named Ferus Olin, who at one time was a padawan but walked away from the Jedi Order before the end of the Clone Wars, is in deep trouble on the planet Bellassa. With the help of an “old friend” he is convinced he must leave Tatooine temporarily to help Ferus. Little does he know all that this “help” will involve. This is a great read and a great series and I highly recommend it to all!!!!!

Flight Explorer: Volume 1 edited by Kazu Kibuishi This is really a wonderful collection of short stories by extremely talented and inventive writers and illustrators collected in one Graphic Novel. Some of my favorite stories in the collection (although I really liked them all) were Missile Mouse in “The Guardian Prophecy” (lots of action and adventure), Fish N Chips in “All in a Day’s Work" (Get this; a cat and a fish are galactic protectors of the planet Earth. Sounds funny, right? Well, the story is even funnier than you think. I just love it.) and “Big Mouth” (this one is so hilarious that I’m not even going to try and explain it; just read it). Do yourself a favor and give this Graphic Novel a try. The art work and stories will blow you away. You will not regret it, I promise!!!!!

Well, until next time all. Happy Trails,

Bad Bart Bill
