We're working on some new houses and we want to know which one is your favorite. What do you think? Vote below! (Click on the image to enlarge it.) Which house design is your favorite? Now I wonder what this house is for... What do you think? I don't have an answer for you yet, but I know it's going to be an exciting part of the New Poptropica!

The reviews for Poptropica: The Lost Expedition are rolling in and they're super fantastic! Rebecca on GoodReads gives it 5 stars and says: "Super cute! Quite funny and fast paced short graphic novel for kids. Love the graphics as well!"  Star on GoodReads also gives it 5 stars and writes: "There is a lot of adventure and history. Kids will have a lot of fun reading this and rooting for Oliver, Mya, and Jorge to outsmart the evil Octavian. The illustrations are great!"  And on Amazon, Country Girl Bookaholic says in her review: "I could totally see this book being a hit with kids that love adventure books, and plus it teaches a history lesson that might make them want to go find out more about that time in history! Even though I'm an adult reading this book series, I can't wait to see what happens in the next book in this fantastic series! Thank you to Mitch Krpata for writing the second book in this excellent series!" Have you
