    • Review of Kekaju and the Hidden Swamp4 starsA boy s thirteenth birthday ought to be a really special day, especially for a boy who s already had enough sorrow in his young life Not so for Zachary Bonroy, whose mother went out to the market one day and just never returned On his thirteenth birthday, as his father and he are headed out to breakfast in New Orleans French Quarter, Zach stops to check out the home of his Great Aunt s former husband and his father is killed in a senseless streetcar ac [...]


    • I won a copy of this book through an online promotion contest and it is good Really good If I could I would ve given it 4.5 stars The only reason I didn t go for 5 is a personal quirk The author does a great job of giving us the flavor of the cajun language which, for me, was a little difficult to follow at times But this will not apply to everyone We re introduced to Zach, who on his 13th birthday, loses his father As his world is turned upside down, he goes to live with his aunt out in the dee [...]


    • I had not idea what the book would be when I started it It however soon became clear that even if I have read the blurb it would not have done the book justice.This is a middle grade read with some violence in it and at first the level of violence for this age group bothered me until I realized that the X Box games etc that children of this age are playing I need not worry.With a wide cast of amazing characters I fell in love with the story and it had me hooked by page 5 Not an easy thing to do [...]


    • I made it 3 4 of the way through this book.Unfortunately, while I thought the idea was good, it couldn t hook me The book started out pretty good, but it got kind of confusing it felt rather disjointed to me.There were times I felt myself being drawn in, only to have something jolt me out of it Certain characters would say the same random thing over and over, which could have been great, but I felt it was overdone Really, I felt the whole well, the 3 4 I read, anyway could have used a really goo [...]


    • Kekaju and the Hidden Swamp is a book I would have dared myself to read on a dark night when I was that age This book is about an orphaned preteen who has to live with his weird, but loving, Auntie and her strange friends There is the scary old house next door Author Robert W Sweeting has this mid grade book all wrapped up in creepy swamps, bodies covered with sheets, bleeding ghosts, monsters, and strange talking animals Just what young kids like Another rewrite may have made it tighter and the [...]


    • This was not really my kind of book but I give it a 3 because I think that middle grade kids especially boys would love it It has quirky characters, alot of action and fun things like chairs made out of leeches and snakes I ll be recommending the book to my grandsons.
