Book Review: Grave Matters

neil-gaimanReview by BENJAMIN G. GAN, 10

I like reading books by Neil Gaiman, because strange things always happen in them, and the kid in the story always has to figure out how to get out of the mess (or else!) with some help from friends or family. “The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish” is pretty funny, because it has a brother and sister exchanging stuff back to get their father back. “Coraline” is a bit scarier, since the girl in the story gets stuck in a different world where this evil woman (Other Mother) wants to keep her forever and take out her eyes (and put buttons in them instead), but instead of giving up, Coraline looks for ways to defeat the magic of Other Mother. (Can’t wait for the movie to show here!)

The Graveyard Book is not exactly a horror story, even though it’s about a boy whose family got killed by a man named Jack. The baby (later named Nobody Owens ) escaped the knife of the man named Jack because he crawled out onto the street and came to the graveyard where the man Jack followed him there by his smell (Jack has a keen sense of smell, but anyway baby poop smells aren’t hard to miss).

Game Review: Worm of Wisdom

word-wisdomReview by GABRIEL JOSHUA M. FLORESCA, 13

I like playing computer games and they are not always about fighting and battles. Our mom encourages my brothers and I to play educational games. One of the computer games I really enjoy playing is Bookworm.

Bookworm is a good word game where you form words by connecting tiles. You go up to higher levels every time you finish a set and earn the required points of the lower levels. There is a worm on the left side of the board and he gives players a bonus word to find. When you form the first bonus word, you get a thousand points and the word will be replaced by a new one. The points get higher every time you find new bonus words.

The game is made more exciting by different kinds of tiles. Normal tiles look like those we have in our Scrabble board game. There are also green, gold and blue crystal tiles that correspond to higher points when you use them to form words. They appear when you make long words. Then there are those burning tiles that you should look out for when you keep forming short words. (Read More)
