Fox in Socks

This book was very weird. The pictures were very pretty. Most of it was silly. It was not easy to read and it took a long time to read. I didn’t like reading about the socks but I did like the parts that were about games.

Swiss Family Robinson

Swiss Family Robinson is an exciting book. In the beginning of the book, the Robinsons are shipwrecked on an island. They build a tree house and dig out a salt cave. They find sugar cane and drink the sweet juice out of it. In the end, they find a ship sailing near the island and row their row boat they made out to it.
