My Review: Here’s a few words to capture the book in, Inspiring, Sad, happy, sad again. Sweltering, shivering, cold, hot, tired… happy. This book deserves a gold medal but because I don’t have one five stars will have to do.

The Night Before Christmas

TITLE:The Night Before Christmas

AUTHOR:Rose Collins

ABOUT THE BOOK: The original Night Before Christmas has taken an interesting turn and is now bears instead of humans with an exception of Jolly Old St. Nick himself. A perfect book for little kids.

MY REVIEW: I loved this book even if it was (totally not) too young for me so I absolutely have to give it five stars, a classic poem mixed with The Berenstain Bears, kind of. For a book so special I had to take the extra time to colour the words specially.  The pictures of children dreaming of sugar-plums and seeing jolly old St. Nick again really made me  excited about Christmas again.  

FAVOURITE QUOTE: “Not creature was stirring not even mouse”

Nothing but trouble

TITLE: Nothing But Trouble

AUTHOR: Jacqueline Davies

SERIES: Nothing But Trouble

ABOUT THE BOOK: At first Maggie hacked on her own, then came the new girl and she knew that Maggie was doing the hacks and she wanted to be a part of it, so Lena joined Maggie. However the “mouse” (the hacks that they did together), started to become more than just a hack or two. It became a candidate for class president! So now they must find a way not to get caught as they sneak petitions and votes past their psycho principal and win the vote for justice, but its a little harder than it may seem…  

they’ll never know what hit ’em

MY REVIEW: I really loved this book especially because it didn’t focus on one problem. It kept a few issues to solve like living with her grumpy one legged Grandpop and keeping a relationship between her and Lena and winning the class president. It is definitely five stars. Let’s give a round of applause to Jacqueline Davies! clap, clap, clap, clap!

 

Ben The Dragonborn

Title:Ben the dragon born

Author: Dianne Astle

About the book: Ben can’t swim no big deal right? He will just stay away from water. But his principal calls him in one day about not being able to swim. If he fails the coming test he will be able to quit the swimming lessons if he passes he has to learn to swim. No big deal, he’ll do it wrong on purpose. But it doesn’t work that way you see he is tested for magical powers and after two of them show up he sent out a door… and falls into an ocean thankfully he has a duffel bag that is keeping him afloat but that wont work forever. Soon a lady and two whales show up and take him under the ocean where he sees that she is a mermaid. Wow right? Soon they learn the  true intentions of his quest and its huge will he survive? Read to find out.

My review: I loved this book and when my sister started reading her first chapter book it was this one, I figured she’d love it she never finished it though it was to big for her. I think. I give it five stars. Fantasy lovers everywhere read this  Image result for arrow book.
