The Princess and the Pea

Do you want to read about a Princess? This book had a Princess and Prince. The Prince was looking for a wife. The Prince looked everywhere but couldn’t find the right one. A princess came out of a storm to stay at the castle, the Queen wanted to test her to see if she was a real princess by using a pea. My favorite part of the story was when the Queen put the pea under so many mattresses. The book has a lot of pictures in it and it really helped to tell the story for me. Kids my age would like this story because of all the pictures.

Wedgieman to the Rescue

Wedgieman is a Hero. Wedgieman, the kids, and Bad Dude are the main characters. Wedgieman is hero, the kids cheer him on. Bad Dude is always causing trouble. Bad Dude made a machine that can make things disappear. My favorite part of the story was when Bad Dude tried to make Wedgieman disappear. This is a book with pictures and the pictures helped me to understand the story. I really think kids my age would like this book, I am in second grade.

Slowly, Slowly, Slowly, said the Sloth

This sloth is slow. My favorite part of the book is when the sloth went really slow to grab a leaf. I thought it was very interesting how slow sloths move. The sloth is the only character in the book, I like him because he takes his time to do everything. Other animals that came across him, asked him, “why are you so slow”? This is a picture and the pictures help readers understand this story. This book is good for young readers who just started reading. I like the book because the sloth really takes his time and its really good to take your time doing stuff.

I scream ice cream!

This book is about ice cream. Well it’s kinda of a rhyming word books! I like that it has rhyming words that go with I scream ice cream and its such a funny book that you would love! Well I hope you enjoyed!

Wedgieman and the Big Bunny Trouble

Wedgieman is a fun character to read about. My favorite part of the story was when the Big Bunny jumped on Bad Dude and Wedgieman helped. I liked this part because it was funny how the bunny jumped on Bad Dude. The main characters are Wedgieman, who fixes his suit and is very heroic, the kids who were very young and exploring the world around them. Bad Dude is really bad person and he is really dramatic. This book is a picture book which helps readers understand the story. I really liked, I thought it was funny. I really think that little kids would love this story.

Crazy kind of Love

Jamal Shield aka Preacher (Leo Sullivan ) a notorious young B-More gangster is sentenced to life in prison for multiple crimes, including an armored Brinls truck heist for a cool $5.2 million. He is surprised when he is released from prison.

That works

This was about a boy named Danny who found a bag of rubber bands. He gave one too his dad, and his sister. Danny little brother was crying so Danny made him feel better by putting six rubber bands on a empty tissue box and played a song with the rubber bands. This was a short story but I like the story because I know what to do when my little cousin starts crying.

Im Me!

I read a book called I’m me! So this book’s about a girl named Imogen. She goes to visit her auntie Sara. Her and her auntie Sara play pretend and her auntie says: do you wanna be a naughty monkey? Imogen says no no! Then her auntie says do you wanna be a beautiful princess! Imogen says no no! Then her auntie says do you wanna be a a witch’s kitty? And some other stuff. But what she really wanted to be was herself! Like eating ice cream. Swinging on swings and reading and just being herself! So just be your self! Hope you enjoyed!

The Mysterious Benidect Society

The excellent wording and vocabulary is outstanding. The characters are very enjoyable and interesting, they are so realistic and believable I forget they are not real. I love this book for it’s bookish honesty and how it makes you never want to stop.

Batman Winter Wasteland

I liked this book because it was like DC Super Friends but it had the Flash and Wonderwoman instead of Aquaman and Superman. It is about the greatest heroes in Gotham City fighting the Ice Pack. They win by trapping them in a sewer and then Flash melts all the snow and then water pours on them like water falls. And then the water froze into a block of ice.
