REVIEW EXCERPTS FROM JOHN GREEN, AMAZON TOP 1000 REVIEWER, VINE VOICE:"...this was funny! And I don't just mean "heh, got in a good one" funny, more like "lol- they nailed it" funny...this is a YA parody there's no actual shagging going on, but...it's pretty comical! ...some very witty satire here...it'll put a smile on your face."DESCRIPTION: Phatness Evermean finds herself volunteering for the Games on Infinite Justice Day (slogan: Sticking It To The Revolting Districts For Infinity) -- only to be partnered with clever, Kneader Malarky. (You could almost believe he's a decent human being, if there was such a thing in PanAm.) Phatness trusts no one except perhaps, her hunting partner, Windy, and her Games stylist, Sinner. (Where would a girl be if she didn't have a stylist she could trust?)Kneader turns out to be a boy to die for -- but the one person who really needs to understand this, hasn't got a clue. But, that Malarky boy is a clever one. He just may win Phatness's companionship...one way or another. (Watch out Phatness, you may be outmatched!) Phatness exudes a beauty heretofore unknown to the Capitol District, adding an entirely new dimension to the H. Unger Games (named for the persnickety inventor of the Games, Helix Unger). There's no need for real arrows when cupid's are so much more accurate and just as deadly.(While the content is sometimes suggestive, there is no sex in this parody, not that parents who would let their kids read such violent books as "The Hunger Games" would care.)"The best Hunger Games parody out there...though that's not saying much," Effin Ijiot.,
You can count on horse-crazy kids to be doing something horse-related, thinking about something horse-related, or planning something horse-related 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That's why Cindy A. Littlefield created the Kids' Book of Horse Games & Puzzles. If kids are going to spend their time horsing around, they might as well jump-start their creativity and boost their problem-solving skills at the same time.<br><br> The book is divided into five sections: Word Play, Picture Puzzles, Drawing, Fun and Games, and Brain Teasers. (All the answers are included.)<br><br> Take the "Horse and Pony Stall of Fame" challenge by matching up famous equines with their human or television character companions. Snuffle through the "Hungry as a Horse" quiz and see if you can find the names of 14 things horses like to eat hidden in a block of letters. Then break out your best drawing pencils and learn how to draw a horse's portrait in six easy steps.<br><br> Fun, horsey cartoons and illustrations adorn every page. And scattered throughout the book are horse riddles, bits of horse trivia, and quotes about horses.<br><br> Here, at last, is the perfect book for kids who love puzzles almost as much as they love horses.
101 brain teasers challenge kids to think and learn. Ages 6-9, 101 slips, 3" recyclable plastic screwtop jar.
