The Red Pyramid

Book review about “The Red Pyramid”

“The Red Pyramid” is a book by Rick Riordan, and its genre is fantasy. It is about two Egyptian kids called Carter and Sadie Kane. Carter travels the world with their dad and Sadie lives with their grandma and grandpa. Every year Carter comes to see his sister in London with his dad. One night the dad wanted to go to a museum to see some Egyptian artifact called the Rosetta Stone. It turns out that he wants to release some Egyptian gods, but it goes wrong and one Egyptian god called Set, the god of evil, traps their father. It then turns out they are magicians. Their uncle Amos then brings them to a mansion not visible to regular humans. They start training, but their mansion gets attacked. Sadie’s cat Muffin turns out to be the Egyptian cat goddess Bast. They get attacked by the god Set’s minions, and later in the book they stop him from destroying the gods. Rick Riordan is my favorite author and now there are 3 books, and “The Red Pyramid” is only the first in the series. The series is called the “Kane Chronicles” because Sadie and Carter’s last name is Kane. The second book is called “The Throne Of Fire” and the third is called “The Serpent’s Shadow”.

My favorite character in “The Red Pyramid” is Carter because he’s really smart  and knows a lot about the Egyptian gods because of traveling to Egypt with his dad so much and hearing a lot of stories that his dad told him. I think that the book was sort-of funny and also creatively made. This book is one of my favorite books.  


 This the second book in the series, and it’s called “The Throne of Fire”


This is the third, and last book in the series, and it’s called “The Serpent’s Shadow”

Super Smash Bros

I just got got this really cool game on my Wii U called Super Smash Bros. If you like Nintendo games, then you’ll like this. Maybe you have heard about it already because it’s really popular.

It’s basically a game with a Nintendo character from every game. There’s Link from The Legends of Zelda, there’s some of the Mario character’s like Bowser, Donkey Kong, and Luigi. You can also use Sonic, and even some Pokemon! There’s Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Lucario, Greninja, and my favorite pokemon to use is Charizard. All characters can change color, but you can also use the original colors.

For the Wii U, every character jumps with X, or Y, and they do a long-range attack with B, and a short-range attack with A. You can get Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo Wii U, and the Nintendo 3ds.

In Super Smash Bros you can also make your own arenas to fight in. You can choose it to be large, medium, or small. You can add lava and springs that make you jump higher if you step on them.

In Super Smash Bros you can play a game mode called normal Smash, which is a 4 or less player game. You can also do Special Smash, where you can choose how fast you run, how high you jump, and you can even put bunny ears or flowers on the character’s heads. You can also make the characters look like shiny silver guys. The last game mode is my personal favorite. It’s called 8-Player Smash. In 8-Player Smash you can play with up to 8 players or less, counting CPU’s. If you want a really cool fight with everyone really close together, then use 8 players and use a small place to battle.

Super Smash Bros is one of my favorite games on my Wii U, and I love playing it with friends and my brother.
