Blossom is as amusing as ever in this last book of the Blossom Culp series Alexander s getting himself into trouble as usual he s been smokingin those ancient outdoor bathrooms , and Blossom isn t making things any easier for him Not to mention that their new history teacher is a strict woman who believes in women rights to the despair of Letty s mom and favors Blossom a bit Oh, and a dead Egyptian princess Awesome book that doesn t fail to please Blossom Culp is an unforgettable character, and her story, while fantastic, is a painless history lesson The whole series is thoroughly enjoyable, and I m glad my daughter discovered these books when she was in the 7th grade. Richard Peck s books are superb, and I think the ones set in Illinois and thereabouts around the turn of the century are some of the best He has such a feel for the atmosphere of the time, making it alive rather than stuffy and historical Plus, these are some of the most absurdly funny books I ve ever read Blossom Culp and the Sleep of Death is all of that and Blossom has got to be one of the most amusing and lovable characters ever while being someone who d probably drive me nuts if I actually met her Scruffy, saucy, and smart as can be that s Blossom In this particular story, seeing her and Alexander growing up from children into young adults is really interesting and funny and kind of cute as well The inclusion of spirits and historical for Blossom as well as for the reader mystery is classic for this series, but bringing in an Egyptian princess is something else It works though, oddly enough There s enough historical detail to make it credible without feeling forced And the combination of eerie mystery and absurd humor is perfect For any readers upper elementary and older who enjoy a humorous historical story, Blossom Culp and the Sleep of Death is definitely recommended whether you ve read the other books in the series or not. This was fun The narrator has a wickedly fun personality even if the plot is sort of childish, but then this is a child s book. This is the fourth, and sadly probably final, book in Peck s Bluff City books Once again, Peck s characterizations and comedic writing are fabulous The story is fun We see even of Madame Culp and her wild ways But, overall, the book is lacking Peck leaves several threads and characters out on a limb Though there are elements of Blossom s life, and her friend s lives, that are set up in other books, these set ups are dropped completely For example, though this book takes place immediately after The Dreadful Future of Blossom Culp, characters who should appear in Sleep of Death, based on the previous book s ending, have entirely disappeared Additionally, elements that are telegraphed early in the book, and the series, and have super perfect setup for the end are entirely ignored One dropped element in particular has me so annoyed I m tempted to write Peck a letter to say, WTF, and PLEASE FIX THIS But I m just anal that way.Despite my frustrations with the final two Bluff City books, I m sorry that there have been no books about Blossom and Alexander Especially Blossom She s a character that deserves as many books as she can fill And she could fill a lot. A QUEST THROUGH TIME AND SPACE TO ANCIENT EGPYTBlossom Culp is an unlikely heroine living hand to mouth in dilapidated quarters, with a light fingered mom who scrounges food and items to sell in the dead of night But she is also one of the few freshmen at her school with ESP Yet not even Blossom could have predicted that she would be chosen as the natural contact medium in this world and time for the spirit of a wronged Egyptian princess Blossom and her mom live like squat in squalor on the wrong side of the tracks in a small town in 1914, when women did not have the Vote Then a new History teacher sails into town and quickly gets both her class and their mothers into an uproar So just what ancient secret was left hastily forgotten in an old traveling show tent Does Alexander have what it takes to join a high school fraternity with dare devil initiaion rites, while Blossom is ostracized by the girls Clever plotting and zippy dialogue combine to make this a fun read April 19, 2011 I welcome dialogue with teachers. Blossom Culp remains a joy to spend time with, and Richard Peck remains a master of his craft Blossom s wry narration, her sly ways, and the very enjoyable ensemble surrounding her make for a delightful reading experience As usual, these books are strongest when dealing with Blossom in her present, as opposed to the fantastical mumbo jumbo And Blossom and Alexander are so cute together I think Peck adds just the right amount of hints at romance without ever going there It s just a shame this book isn t widely available, and that there aren t Blossom Culp adventures. This book is not as good as the other Richard Peck novel s I ve read but it s still very interesting I admit I ve never read a book about Egyptian princesses coming to teen psychics for help The summary doesn t really do the book justice though I think the summary makes the book sound silly but I loved it The Egyptian Princess doesn t show up till the last half of the book which I wasn t expecting so the book really is about than that The book takes place in 1914 too so you get a glimpse of life back then So this isn t your average teenage girl with a room full of clothes and jewelery and her own cellphone This teenage girl sleeps on a cot in a room with barely anything else in it She has a chamber pot by her bed and an outhouse behind her house This book is also apparently apart of a series featuring Blosom Culp and Alexander Almsworth The other books are The Ghost Belonged to Me, Ghosts I Have Been and The Dreadful Future of Blossom Culp
