Because of Winn Dixie

A surprisingly intriguing book. India Opal must find her way through all of life’s challenges, including making friends with what her classmates call “The Witch”, finding out about the struggles of her other classmate Amanda, and dealing with a dog called Winn-Dixie. I highly recommend.

Junie B First Grader Cheater Pants

This book was really funny. But it also taught an important lesson. I love the characters, especially Junie B. But she didn’t make the right decision when she decided to cheat. And she got caught. It is best to do your homework.

Space Mice Your Mine, Captan

It all started one stellar afternoon on my space ship,the mousestar1. I was in my cabin working on my book when suddenly I hear a strange noise grumble! Holy craters! What was that? I was squeaked! “A martam invader? An alien slug slipping in though a porthole? A carnivorous blodoid that escaped from plot” my whisker trembled in fright! I look under the bed…nothing! I cheeked the curtian…nothing! I look all around my desk…nothing there either just the note for the book. THE END

The Odd Squad

The book is about Nick trying to be friends with a bully so he won’t get beat up and stuffed into his locker. If he stays in his locker too long he will get zombie butt.

Esperanza Rising

Esperanza is one of the most touching books ever. From tragedies to joyfulness, this book includes it all. You won’t be able to forget this book in a lifetime.

The Lemonade War

The Lemonade War is a great book about siblings opposing each other with lemonade. I think Jacqueline Davies is one of the best authors ever. This book is beautifully written and designed.

Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu

I like Ninjago. Everyone has super powers and can fight the bad guys. My favorite warrior is the green ninja. He is the strongest one. And he will beat the evil masters. I wish I had super powers and could fight like a ninja. That would be so awesome. All the heroes were normal and then they all got super powers and became heroes. So maybe me and my friends could be heroes too.

Tuck Everlasting

Tuck Everlasting is a great book with amazing symbolism and lots of exotic words. I highly doubt that you will dislike it. It is somewhat boring at the beginning, but it gets much better in the middle.

The Pinstripe Ghost

I read The Pinstripe Ghost. The problem was that Mike and Kate don’t know what the ghost is. At the end, they realize Sammy and his friends were climbing through the vent and made noises and cold air come in. They used a key to get in the vent. Mike and Kate found out who it was. This was a good book.
