Spud

SpudThis book was written in South Africa. It says on the cover that it is hilarious, but I think it was terrible. I hated how it tricked me into reading the book by making it look good on the cover. The book is set like a diary and I couldn’t go any further than the 2nd day. I will admit, it was funny at first, but then it got super boring. Also this book is very inappropriate. Only in the first 10 pages, SPUD had already referred to a [body part] about 10 times. This book is the worst.  [hashtag.hashbrown]

One day while looking for adventure, the kids escape from their father’s house. The chief and his wife are distraught and scared, so they call three detectives to find their children.

I thought this was an awesome book! I especially liked the detectives. They were so cool.  [detective II]

lastofthemohicans_110This story takes place in North America during the French and Indian War and follows the journey of a scout named Hawkeye and the daughters of General Munro, Cora and Alice. Hawkeye is traveling with a party of two Native Americans, Chingachgook and his son Uncas. They are the last surviving members of the Mohican tribe. Their lives are put in even more danger when Cora and Alice are kidnapped by the deceiving Huron, Magua. It’s now up to Hawkeye and his allies to save the two before it’s too late.

Awesome! Although this book was written over a hundred years ago, it is definitely a book that I couldn’t put down. A few words and phrases made it a bit difficult to understand, but the reader will get used to it. The plot was in such an unusual setting too; it just really interested me. The pictures in the book were so colorful and vivid. It gives the reader a clear picture of the setting. For those who love great adventures and heroes, this book is for you!  [Wild Pancake]

Where the Mountain Meets the MoonA girl named Minli wanted to meet a man called The Old Man of the Moon to ask how to change her family’s poor fortune. On her way to Never Ending Mountain where he lives, she meets some good friends and a flightless dragon, too.

I loved this book. Maybe it’s my new favorite. It’s filled with great details. Once you start to read, you can’t stop – you just want to know what happens next! The dragon wants to learn how to fly and Minli wants to change her parents’ poor fortune. When she found the Old Man of the Moon, she could only ask one question  [Joyful 44B]
