AuthorAaron Blabey

A book under 150 Pages

Category – a book under 150 pages – this book is 140 pages long which is under 150 pages.

Synopsis (what is it about?) – 10,000 chickens are trapped in a high-tech cage farm! Who could possibly save them? Well, how about a wolf, a shark, a piranha and a snake… Who’s also known as “the chicken swallower”? What could possibly go wrong?

What did I think? – it was a great book. It was WAY funnier than the first book and I look forward to episode 3 of The Bad Guys.

Who else would like it? – I think this would be a good book for people who don’t like reading a lot as it was quick to read and had a great story. I also think that kids in grades 5 & 6 would really like it.

You would especially like it if you liked the first one.

How to fight a dragon’s fury

AuthorCressida Cowell

Book with a Blue Cover

Category – a book with a blue cover – I put it in this category because it has a blue cover

Synopsis (what is it about?) – This is the final book in the How to Train Your Dragon series. In this book, Hiccup is able to end the battle between dragon’s and men. Can he become King of the Wilderwest?

What did I think? – I thought this book was really good. My favourite bit was the battle between the humans and the dragons. It was a really exciting battle.

I’m a bit sad that this is the final because I have really enjoyed reading this series.

Who else would like it? – As with How to Betray a Dragon’s Hero, if you like the Dragon’s Riders of Berk and Dragon’s Defenders of Berk TV series, as well as the How to Train Your Dragon movies, you would enjoy this book even though it is very different to the TV series and movie.

When someone says “Time to Read”

Reading is cool!

School started back a little while ago and I don’t have as much time to read as I do in the holidays!

Yesterday, my teacher set us a task to write what we think of when someones says “It’s reading time.”

This was my response:

  • Yay!
  • Reading is fun
  • I like reading books, magazine’s – Double Helix, Historicool
  • I am running out of bookmarks, what else can I use as a bookmark?
  • So many books, so little time!

I love reading!

Swallow Me, NOW!

AuthorMelissa Gijsbers

A book set in my home state

Category – A book set in your home state – this book is set in Victoria and that is my home state.

Synopsis (what is it about?) – Samantha (aka: Sam) is starting a new school after coming to Victoria, Australia, from Nepal and is having trouble fitting in and starts getting bullied by the most popular girl in the class.

What did I think? – I thought it is a very good book and is a lot more realistic than other books I have read about bullying as other books make the bully and the victim becoming friends. I have been bullied and you would just want them to stop.

I also enjoyed the story, and glad Felicity wasn’t in my class at school!

I should also add that my Mum wrote this book.

Who else would like it? – People who go to school would like it. I especially recommend it to people who are starting a new school or are being bullied.
