Duke & Michel: The King Tingaling Painting (The Ad&hellip by Elias Zapple
4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sequel!, 27 Aug 2014
What a fun sequel to "Duke and Michel: The Mysterious Corridor"! I loved the humor, the fast pace, and the unique adventures written in a style that reminds me of Roald Dahl. I enjoyed the first book, and I looked forward to reading this one. Salvador von Virst is a memorable character as is King Tingaling, the gold-leafed walls and all! The theme of a king not being satisfied with his portrait due to lack of dignity in the portrait is always timely and a good lesson on politics and humility for kids of any age. While the characters in the two books overlap, this is its own adventure and can be read on its own. Excellently fun and exciting book!

What a fun book! Irreverent, full of adventures and humor perfect for preteen boys! The story is fast-paced, with a lot of quick unexpected changes. The problem is real -- a missing cousin, but the solution is not what you would expect. I absolutely loved the chapter about Michel's first encounter with the talking Basset Hound. The offer of the dog to bite Michel and his justification ("I've had my tetanus shot") made me laugh outloud. I love humor that's logical but in a crazy way, and this book is full of such humor. No reluctant readers will be left reluctant once they get this book!
Anti Inflammatory Diet: Beginner's Guide: What You&hellip by Annette Goodman
5.0 out of 5 stars Great guide!, 23 Aug 2014
Great concise information about inflammation and ways to curb it. A biologist friend of mine mentioned chronic inflammation as an underlying issue for many health problems, and I wanted to know more. Inflammation is not just something that flares up obviously, it's a hidden problem that can lead to many serious conditions and diseases. This book explains all that very well and provides suggestions for making our lives healthier, ranging from vitamin supplements to moderate exercise to foods to include and exclude. Great guide!
