2 children Finding the right key that fits a Name that Book (gener 2013)

Ressenyes

{My thoughts} – Time Jumpers is such a fun series. It reminds me a lot of the Ranger in Time books. It’s just a little different, due to it’s children and people being sent back in time instead of just an animal.

The illustrations within the pages of this book help to add to the wonderfulness of the story. I love how they go hand and hand and have the ability to help keep the child engaged in what they are reading or being read. It is always fun to have a visual of what you are reading, even if it isn’t quite the same as you’ve imagined yourself.

Chase and Ava get to go back to the time of the dinosaurs. Chase is the most excited. While they are there, they have another encounter with Randall who once again tries to stop them from placing the object back into it’s correct timeline. They however, are able to come to an agreement and then Randall goes on his way.

Both Chase and Ava are hoping this will be the end of Randall stopping or trying to stop them from replacing objects. However, only time will tell if that is or is not the case. I look forward to seeing what their next adventure is going to be, as this was a fun book to read and so far I have really enjoyed the series in a whole. I cannot wait until my little ones are ready to read these or have them read to them!

{My thoughts} – Prince and Princess Rose have two different stories. They both are written in the past leading up to when their lives merge together. They begin as their own separate stories and then they become one. There are always two sides to every story and this series allows you to see both sides.

Prince has been obsessed with a certain place in the woods by his castle. He couldn’t explain why or what the deal was just that he had an overwhelming desire to be there in that place and was wondering why. One day he got a glimpse of what was hidden there and he became more obsessed. Especially after he’d discovered that it appeared to be an exact replica of the castle he and his family lived it, however, it was hidden under impenetrable vines.

When his father and mother went on a business trip Prince had a gathering with all the elders in their village. He asked them questions and he learned of Princess Rose and her families history. He then searched the library and other places to try and find more information. In the end he’d concluded that Princess Rose was hidden away in that hidden Castle.

If you’d like to know what happens you’ll need to read the book. Does he get to her? Do they have a happy ever after? All of those can be learned by reading the book.

I recommend this book for any child that enjoys fairytales. I strongly believe that they will enjoy reading about Rapunzel and the Prince. It’s a well written retelling that doesn’t take much time at all to read through. I look forward to reading the rest of the series in the future.

{My thoughts} – Rapunzel is a sweet 12 year-old girl that is excited to get her birthday haircut. However, instead of being able to celebrate her birthday with her mom and dad her world ends up being turned completely upside down. By following along the premise of the original story, Rapunzel’s dad had promised her to a witch in return for the herb in which his wife had been craving that was growing in the witch’s garden.

When the witch collects her debt and takes the girl she only allows her a few meager possessions and then locks her up in the tower away from everything she had ever known. She has a keeper there for her that is able to go in and out undetected. That keeper prepares her food and more or less guards her. He too was forced to pay a debt in which the witch had decided to collect on.

One day Rapunzel is singing a song and a Prince happens to hear it. He follows the sound of her singing until he comes upon the tower in which she is being held. The two of them come up with a plan in which they will attempt to break her out of the tower. On the day they are finally going to put their plan into action Rapunzel says the wrong thing and the witch hears it. The witch ends up getting furious with Rapunzel. She then takes her from the tower and throws her out in the middle of the woods to make her fend for herself. The problem after that is that neither the Prince nor Rapunzel know where they other is and they both feel really bad about it.

If you’d like to know what happens you’ll need to read the book. I promise you won’t be disappointed. I found it to be a brilliant retelling. I always love to read other writers spins on classic stories. Wendy Mass definitely has a knack for spinning a classing tale into a modern story.

I recommend this book for any child that enjoys fairytales. I strongly believe that they will enjoy reading about Rapunzel and the Prince. It’s a well written retelling that doesn’t take much time at all to read through. I look forward to reading the rest of the series in the future.

{My thoughts} – I am beginning to really love the ways in which this series of books is written. It allows you to have the perspective of both characters before, during and after their lives are merged together.

In this book we have Beauty a girl that isn’t well what one would actually define as beautiful, rather she is more plain and ordinary. And then you have the Beast. He is Prince Riley and he isn’t much of a looker either. However, the two of them do in deed fall for one another and in doing so come up with a plan in which they will attempt to over throw the witch that had cursed him and his family.

I really enjoyed reading this story as it was a eye opening kind of story. You get to meet many characters throughout the book and they come back in the end and it’s like that was that person type thing. The story is nicely woven together and it is in it’s own a brilliantly retold classic.

I recommend this book for any child that enjoys fairytales. I strongly believe that they will enjoy reading about Rapunzel and the Prince. It’s a well written retelling that doesn’t take much time at all to read through. I look forward to reading the rest of the series in the future.
