Thisby is BACK!! And this time she’s saving the Dungeon! Again! This time rumors of war on Umberfall have reached the king, who sends an royally appointed overseer to oversee the dungeon in case of Umberfallians who would like to very much see too a war. But, an adventurer shortage makes a gold shortage which make the overseer make the Wretched Scrattle happen again, but the last time it happened was a couple hundred years ago, so the rules need some changing. But then Thisby’s beloved Grunda quits, in light of having to work for Marl, the overseer. But Grunda goes to Iphigenia, the crown princess who is also Thisby’s BFF. She will happily sign Thisby’s form to enter the Wretched Scrattle, ( they had to have had a dungeon official and royalty or a royally appointed official sign it) now they need a dungeon official. Oh yeah, Marl doesn’t want Thisby to win, nor anyone else, but the master is in favor of Thisby because 1. He hates that you can’t even so much as step outside of the castle when you’re master and 2. He thinks Thisby is the best person since he’s been doing his job since the dawn of the dungeon. ( not in one term, not in two side by side, two entirely separate terms, which kinda makes you think that that isn’t possible since masters serve until the end of their life!)SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oops, I almost told you his real identity
I recommend this book to kids 4th grade + because it’s so great!!!! I also recommend this book to kids who like monster, adventure, magical bad guys, and stuff like that!!

Reviewer – Little Brother
This is the amazingly awesome Astronaut loving little brother taking over the blog to share about two Astronaut books.
The First Men Who went to the Moon is about space and the first lunar landing. It talks about their prep, landing and how people reacted. There are Moon facts in the book too.
This book would be good for kids who want to learn about space and going to the Moon. This year is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing so now would be a good time to learn about it. Second grade classes could use this book! I read it by myself!
The Astronaut who painted the moon is about Alan Bean. He was the fourth man to land on the moon. He was also an artist. When he got back to Earth, he painted what he saw on the moon.
This would be a good book for art classes to talk about the moon landings. Mom says it is also a good way to show how you can use art to share an experience. I think this book would be good in classes.
The two books go together really well. I am adding them to my space shelf with the book by Buzz Aldrin! I like space and hope to go one day.
Last year I met an Astronaut when we were at Kennedy Space Center.

This book about an owlet who does not want to fly, even though it’s siblings have learned already. The owlet goes through all the what if’s, and never really thinks about, what if… she does fly.
This book has a moral, I know it, I think it is… Do not think of what might happen, should you fail, think of what might happen, should you succeed.
I recommend this book to younger kids who are reluctant to do something. It helps you realize to not think what might happen if you fail, think what might if you succeed!

This book is about how you are great and positive and everything good! Each page has an animals and you are…… and then the positive word! It’s great and it’s very cool that the end page has all the words and more words!
With my ADHD it’s a great book cause your always making mistakes and getting in trouble and sometimes getting bad grades because careless mistakes you should have noticed, so hearing positive words it makes you feel more confident!😀
I recommend this book to anyone that needs to hear something positive about them! It’s a great book for little kids because it’s not at all hard to read!
