”There is a box, anything you imagine will appear inside. You have one go, one chance to create anything you want. What would you pick?”

Professor Eisenstone, a scientist and an inventor, created a box that can turn whatever you imagine into reality. But he can’t get it to work, that is until Tim showed up. An orphan boy who was adopted by hotel owner poster parents. He has a very keen imagination.

After Tim created an eloquent finger monkey with a dry sense of humor, both of them worked hard to master the powerful contraption. But Professor Eisenstone was kidnapped along with his box. Tim, Phil, his miniature monkey, and Dee, the professor’s granddaughter, must find the criminals before they use the box to create their imagined evil into reality.

But in order to rescue his friend, Tim must face his darkest fears and unleash the full potential of his imagination.

Be the first to grab this book and read about Tim’s adventures and his finger monkey creation as he discovers the power of imagination and  how he rescue his friend, Professor Eisenstone!

 

Book Review: Gone?

Gone

Gone?
ni Bryce Riley N. Munoz, 5F

“Saan ba pumupunta ang mga bagay na nawawala?” Ito ay isang linya na sinabi ni Belen sa istorya na pinamagatang, “Gone?” Sa pagkawala ng kanyang cellphone, naisip niya kung saan makikita ang iba’t ibang mga gamit na nawala.

Ang mga pangunahing tauhan sa kwento ay sina Belen, Auntie Bestie, at si Uncle John. Ang mga sumusuportang tauhan sa kwento ay sina Ate, Nanay, Tatay, Lolo, Lola, at si Mrs.Young. Silang lahat ang mga tauhan sa istorya na ito, ngunit ang pinakapumukaw sa aking interes ay si Belen. Pinili ko siya dahil sa pamamagitan ng imahinasyon niya, naisip niya kung saan pumupunta ang mga gamit na nawawala. Natutuhan ko na mahalaga na magkaroon ng isang mahiwagang imahinasyon. Nakakatuwa ang librong ito dahil epektibo ang pagkakasulat ng may akda para maunawan ng mga bata na apat hangang anim na taong gulang, na mahalagang linangin natin ang ating imahinasyon. Sa huli, maganda ang librong ito dahil nagtuturo ito ng maraming mga leksyon katulad ng pagiging maingat sa ating mga gamit at pagiging malikhain sa ating pag-iisip.

Para sa akin, nakatutuwa   ang librong ito dahil sa simula ng kwento, naiisip na ng tauhan kung saan napupunta ang mga gamit na nawawala. Inirerekomenda ko ang librong ito sa mga bata mula Kinder hangang ikalawang baitang. Magugustuhan nila ang librong ito dahil maraming mga tauhan sa kwento katulad ng mga miyembro ng pamilya.
