Emily and her friends think they’ll find the help they need in Cielis, but something isn’t right.  Streets that were once busy are deserted, and the townspeople who are left live in fear.  Emily is soon escorted to the Academy, where she’s expected to compete for a spot on the Guardian Coucil, a group of the most powerful Stonekeepers.  But as the number of competitors gets smaller and smaller, an awful secret is slowly uncovered – a secret that, if left buried, means the certain destruction of everything Emily fights for.

TJ loves any book that has something to do with animals or reptiles, especially if the subject of dinosaurs. He is a walking encylopedia  when it comes to dinosaurs.  Unfortunately it is hard for me to get him to pay attention to other types of books. When Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi arrived in the mail, I set it on the table. TJ happened to see it and picked it up. Amulet Book Four: The Last Council is a graphic novel written for children ages 9 to 12 years old. It definitely caught TJ’s attention because he took it in his room and spent some of free time reading Amulet.


TJ’s Thoughts

I really liked the graphics. At the beginning I could tell that something happened before this book. Some parts were boring  at first but it did pick up. It seemed like it was three stories in one. I could imagine what was being done in the book, like a movie in my head. It was funny and serious at some points . They were a lot of characters I didn’t expect like the stuffed bunny, dragons and the robots.  I want to read the three books before this one so I can see how it all started.

I am really happy that TJ found a book he is interested in.I plan on looking into more graphix books from Scholastic.
