The Ultimate Top Secret Guide To Taking Over The World by Kenn Nesbitt GIVEAWAY

Ultimate Top Secret The Ultimate Top Secret Guide to Taking Over the World By Kenn Nesbitt
Illustrated by Ethan Long
ISBN 9781402238345
Publisher: Sourcebooks Jabberwocky
About the Book:
From evil robots to recruiting minions and perfecting a diabolical laugh, every reader can master the secret skills to world domination. With tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek, Kenn Nesbitt gives middle grade readers a laugh-out-loud romp through classic evil-doer dos and don’ts while sneaking in some sophisticated vocabulary and clever – if nefarious (mwah! ha! ha!) – reasoning skills.


By the time kids are done reading this ingenious book, they’ll have entire countries groveling at their feet. (Parents beware!)
My Review:
How’s summer reading going for your kids this year? I have to be honest and say, we haven’t had a very good summer. I usually have the boys read a book or two during the summer, but I’ve totally slacked they year. To get them motivated again, I decided to The Ultimate Top Secret Guide To Taking Over The World was the way to go.
I should probably admit from the get go, I actually wanted to do this review because I thought the book sounded funny. I started reading it before my kids and I was cracking up!
One of the aspects that drew me to this book is how engaging the book is. The author really caught my boys interest. He asks questions throughout the story to get their minds thinking, even if it’s over something goofy.
The illustrations by Ethan Long are simply amusing, and have their own diabol
ical looks to them. They definitely fit the theme of the book. He sticks pictures and words in spots throughout the book that give kids something to look at and give their eyes a break as they’re reading. I find this way of creating a book very good for kids who have a hard time staying focused on what they’re reading.
It’s not very often you find a kid’s book where the kids can take notes in the back of the book. This is great for them to make sure they’re keeping track of the important notes for taking over the world!
I don’t always pay attention to authors when it comes to kids book, my boys might find an author or series they like, but I’ll be making sure that when new books come out by Kenn Nesbitt, we’ll be getting them.

s underground fortress in Spokane, Washington, where he hides out with his wife and two minions.

About the Illustrator:
Ethan Long has spent the last 40 years of his life practicing good deeds and angelic ways, none of which you will find in this book. He lives in Orlando, Florida and has no intention o
f ruling the world.

I don't have kids at home anymore. I have no idea what my great niece and nephew have read recently but this would be for them.

My son is currently working his way through the Zatch Bell graphic novels. I believe he's up to #20. He requests them from the library as soon as the library gets them in.
