    Great Book

    Even if you don't like science, this book will interest you. It has a great mix of comedy and action. Oh, yeah, and a little bit of superpowers too. :)

    Amazing book for science lovers!

    My 9 yr-old son is devouring this book. He absolutely cannot read it fast enough. It is always difficult to get him to read fiction and it has been a real struggle since he would rather read scientific, non-fiction material. He is really loving this book and asked for the second one which is music to my ears! The characters are engaging and the storyline is original and entertaining. I'm so excited to have found this author for my son.

    Santa Claus and the Hulk (no copyright intended)

    THE TALE OF HOW THE DOOMSDAY METEOR WAS
    STOPPED

    Santa was sitting in his chair when he got a message from his space satillite to watch all the boys and girls of Earth. He found an enourmous meteor heading straight for Earth! Quickly, he called up the Hulk telling him to come to the North Pole immedietly. When Hulk arrived by hitching a ride with Iron Man, they both jumped into Santa's sleigh and into outer space. The sleigh landed on the asteroid and Santa pushed Hulk out of the sleigh. That made Hulk so mad he stomped his feet and sent the asteroid hurtiling away from Earth, never to be seen again. Then, Santa got the Hulk back in the sleigh and they zoomed away home to Earth. That is how the doomsday meteor was stopped.

    The End

    What would you do if you could control the laws of Physics? <BR/><BR/>Simon Bloom is an average eleven-year-old boy that dreams of being able to fly and instantaneously travel to the moon. But as a 6th-grader, he doesn't know anything about the laws of Physics. Nor has he ever noticed the woods at the end of Van Silas Way. And not just any woods. These woods have trees as big as the Redwoods, yet no one seems to notice them. Then one fateful day, with his new friend, Owen, the Breeze (yes, with a capital B) beckons Simon to the dead end Van Silas Way. Out of nowhere, Dunkerhoook Woods appears before the two of them. They venture into the magically charged woods and discover a clearing with wood stumps arranged in a circle. While exploring the clearing, a Book (again, with a capital B) falls, seemingly out of nowhere. <BR/><BR/>Enter the TEACHER'S EDITION OF PHYSICS. The Book belongs to the Keeper of the Order of Physics. Why has it fallen out of nowhere into Simon Bloom's hands? And what is Simon to do with it? Well, as any curious sixth grader would do, he opens it. And thus begins the adventures. <BR/><BR/>The previous owner of the Book has been injured in a mysterious car accident and the Order of Physics members are out to find the perpetrator of the crime and the missing Book. And a mysterious hooded person and their assistant are trying to find the Book for their own personal use. <BR/><BR/>Simon and his friends must figure out how to use the Book to protect themselves from those that mean to harm them just to get their hands on the Book. <BR/><BR/>The story starts out a bit confusing with all of the different characters and names of organizations. But once the plot begins to move along, it all comes together and is quite entertaining to the reader. For fans of the HARRY POTTER and THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY series, this new addition to the genre will be a treat for them.. Simon and his friends are determined eleven year olds not afraid to stand up to stronger adults as they try to return the Book to its rightful owner. Battles ensue and the laws of Physics are put to the test. <BR/><BR/>Not normally a fan of this genre, Mr. Reisman has created an enchanting story appropriate for all ages to enjoy. The chapters are short so those of a younger age will be able to read a few pages and be able to stop at appropriate places. Older ones will be able to read multiple chapters in one sitting and still want to keep reading. The action is quick and the entire story takes place in less than a week's time. I'm not sure if there will be a sequel to the story, but the ending leaves the possibility there. <BR/><BR/>Pick up SIMON BLOOM, THE GRAVITY KEEPER and see what is possible!

    Simon Bloom delivers!!

    Simon Bloom delivers that rarest of gems: a book for kids that's A' actually funny B' not concerned primarily with bodily functions C' innovative and informative and D' very well written. As a mom of kids ages 9 and 11, THANK YOU! As an avid reader 'and writer' of children's lit, I wholeheartedly recommend Simon Bloom to anyone looking for a fresh read. This book tops my gift list! --Deb Mercier / Glenwood, MN
