Ms. Yingling loves Alex Van Helsing: Triumph of Death

Head on over to Ms. Yingling Reads, a blog focused on books for middle school readers (especially boys) for a new review of Alex Van Helsing: The Triumph of Death!

John Wilson said it best: things have to blow up in the first chapter, and Mr. Henderson never forgets this. So many strengths in his writing-- good action, lots of travel to exotic places, a tiny bit of romance, good friends, supportive but not intrusive adults, and in this case, a fairly thought provoking mystery. Excellent stuff. This series is a must have for my middle schoolers who love the Cirque du Freak series.

Check out the rest!
