Bleman they find that he is a figure from their past who is angry about Tristan s previous actions and is trying to further his own agenda Even if Tristan manages to save Alke and make it back to his world in Alabama will he be able to stop the Shambleman s plans for the future We l need to read book three which does not yet have a title to find outStrengths Once again Tristan s time with his grandparents in the real world is a great way "To Start The Story And "start the story and out that his grandmother has some powers was fantastic Having a relic of his trip the SBP with Anansi in it helps transition into Alke and the world of myths and egends It s good to run into characters from the first Book But Also Meet New Ones The but also meet new ones The of the Shambleman was an interesting twist and I tried not to ruin that He ends up being a character that has suffered trauma that has informed his actions which is something with which Tristan is able to sympathize It s helpful that this has a similar format to a Alcohol Addiction lot of the myth and folk tale based fantasies that have come out in theast ten years there is a uest and a variety of figures are met Some help and some hinder the hero s progress One of my favorite parts was the Diasporapp which Anasi has on the SBP and can offer information about stories that are similar because they originated in the same place The inclusion of some information about slave history is good to see as well Weaknesses It would be very helpful for my readers if there were notes of the various folk tale and mythological characters at the end of this book It occurred to me that so many middle grade fantasy books are based on Anglo Saxon or Greek mythology because they ve been part of school curriculum for so Mobilizing New York long Fifteen years ago readers could easily slip into these stories because they were familiar with thingsike the Arthurian cycle What we really need in the schools now is a pancultural approach to folktales myths and Aspects of South African Literature legends and we need booksike the National Geographic Mythology books on underrepresented cultures We have plenty of Norse Egyptian GreekRoman and Arabian books but relatively few on various Native American African Indian and other tales While the 1999 Julius Lester Uncle Remus The Complete Tales might help understand many of the tales alluded to in Tristan Strong we could probably use another updated account of those as well What I really think This series is definitely for heavy duty fantasy fans who can read Tolkien or Christopher Paolini without breaking a sweat There is so much good information about various aspects of Black history and culture in these books that I selfishly wish they were a bit shorter so it would be easier to get students to check them out Review based on a digital ARC provided via NetGalleyTristan Strong is back in this fast paced follow up to Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in I am a big fan of the Rick Riordan Presents books Aru Shah and Tristan Strong are my personal favorite series from this so far This is a great follow up to Tristan Strong number 1 I appreciate how it shows that even though Tristan did some heroic things in book 1 he also did some harm I The Barefoot Girl: A Novel of St. Margaret, Patroness of the Abused like how his grandmother is tied in and am hoping for back story on her in book 3 Gum Baby and Tristan s bickering continues to provide comic relief Appreciated how the villain of this one is shown as complex Will be recommending and purchasing for sure DO YALL SEE THAT TITLE This book picks up soon after the events of theast book spoilers ahead so Tristan is still on the farm with his grandparents When a mysterious deadly figure called the Shamble Man kidnaps Tristan s Nana Tristan heads to Alke to get her back These books are amazing I think they are now officially my favorite Rick Riordan presents series they are so clever in the presentation of the mythology and they touch on real. Rit from creating further devastation Anansi now a web developer in Tristan's phone is close at hand to offer advice and several new folk heroes will aid Tristan in his uest but he will only succeed if he can figure out a way to sew broken souls back togethe. ,
