Case File 13: Zombie Kid

It's Halloween again and Nick, Carter and Angelo are ready to have the most amazing costumes in the neighborhood, again. This year they will be going as Zombies, complete with a beating "human" heart. They only hope to be able to stay out of the way of Cody Gills, the meanest kid in their school, a boy so large and so mean they had given him the nickname of Frankenstein. Nick always makes the boys costumes and this year, they are amazing. Unfortunately, for Nick, his great-aunt Lenore that he's never even met has just died and her funeral is being held on Halloween in Louisiana. Nick just knows that this is going to be the worst Halloween ever. He's not even going to get to go trick-or-treating this year, let alone be with his friends in his neighborhood in the awesome costume that he's made. But Nick doesn't plan on finding out his great-aunt was a voodoo queen either, or finding her whole stash of potion ingredients, things so scary his parents lock the door to her basement while they are staying in her house. He also doesn't plan on being turned into a...Zombie! But will Nick and his friends be able to turn him back?

This book was really funny! I loved Nick, Carter and Angelo. The titles of the chapters made me laugh really hard. There was plenty of suspense in this book, it's written for elementary aged boys, so there's nothing to scary. The situations these boys got themselves into made me laugh out loud. I also really liked the technique they used to get rid of their bully for good. 

I was able to borrow a copy of this book from my local library.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 

This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
