{Flurry of the Snombies: Troy Cummings}

{Synopsis} – It’s summertime in Stermont! And it’s…SNOWING?!

This series is part of Scholastic’s early chapter book line called Branches, which is aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!

In this seventh book, it’s summertime in Stermont! Alexander, Rip, and Nikki are at summer camp up in the Gloamy Mountains. And it is REALLY hot! But suddenly, it starts snowing – and with the snow comes the snombies! Snombies are snow monsters that can build armies of themselves! Will the S.S.M.P. be able to stop their coolest monster yet?

{My thoughts} – It’s a wonderful day to start summer camp! Alexander, Rip and Nikki get to experience Camp Gloamy on this fabulous but overly hot day! Alex is the last to get there and he is told to go and join the others at the camp fire. He ends up getting lost trying to find it, but his friends find him first and of course they were lost too! Eventually they all find their way to the camp fire and summer camp begins.

All the campers quickly learn that their ranger guide has an insane taste in food and no one is really interested in eating it. They also learn that there is an odd clink sound that is extremely disruptive to the nature atmosphere. Alex is the one that soon discovers they are dealing with Snombies by going through the monster notebook. It takes a little longer for them to figure out the other bad monster that they are going up against, the one that is making that dreadful clink noise.

Rip does some quick thinking and he gets rid of most the Snombies, it isn’t quite as easy to get rid of the other monster. The three friends put their heads together and eventually come up with a solution in which they can attempt to win the battle over the new monster!

This was a fast paced book, once it got into it’s actually story-line. I enjoyed it as much as I have enjoyed the others in the series. I look forward to reading the next book in the series very soon!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
