Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse

Dear Readers,
Do you have a favorite purse? If you do, then you should read Lilly’s Purple plastic purse, by Kevin Henkes. I think Lilly is a selfish character. She is also a nice character too .The pictures are great.My favorite pictures are when Lilly dresses up as a diver, doctor and a ballerina.
Once there was a little girl named Lilly. She had a purple plastic purse. She wanted to show it to her class, But her favorite teacher took it away. Lilly felt furious Will Lilly get her purse back and forgive her teacher?
I think Lilly is selfish because she called her teacher FAT! Lilly called her teacher fat because she was mad at her teacher and he took away Lilly’s purse. I don’t think that is nice. For example, she drew a poster and wrote mean things on it. I like the pictures because they are so FUNNY. For example, I like the part when she says” straws make everything taste better.
I recommend this book to ages six/nine because Lilly’s purple plastic purse has a lesson learned. I give this book 5 stars because it has a lesson learned. My opinion is Lilly is a selfish character and a nice character. Also I like the pictures I like the part when she dresses up as a diver, ballerina and a doctor.
Sincerely,
Alessandra


Lily’s Purple Plastic Purse

lily-purseDid you ever get distracted during class time? Than you should read, Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse by: Kevin Henkes. I think Lilly is distracted because she really wanted to show her purse. I liked reading this book because it’s kind of funny.

 Lilly is a mouse who wants to show everyone her purse.  She was so distracted that Mr. Slinger took it away. Than she was so sadLbecause her purse was gone.  She went to the light bulb lab and drew a picture of Mr. Slinger and put it in his bag. Will Mr. Slinger find the picture?

I don’t very enjoy this book because Lilly’s purse was taken away. Mr. Slinger was a nice character. I’d like to know more. For example: Instead of “Greetings Students.”  Or “Good morning, pupils.” Mr. Slinger winked and said “Howdy.” Also, Lilly’s friends are nice. For example: “I also want to be a teacher. “

 I will recommend this to people who like the books that Kevin Henkes wrote because than they could learn more lessons. I’ll give this book 3 stars because I didn’t enjoy seeing Mr. Slinger taking Lilly’s purse away. I still like the characters because they were sort of funny. Enjoy my Book Review!

LOL,

Vivian

The Pain and the Great One

painlavenderpinkpantsHave you ever had a brother that’s a pain?  If you did, then you should read The Pain and the Great One by Judy Blume.  I think that the great one and the pain are annoying and mean to each other because there are doing bad things to each other.  “That’s not nice”.

This book is about two kids doing inappropriate things to each other because they hate each other.  Even if it’s your own sister. Will they ever get along?  Read the book to find out what will happen.

I loved the part when the cat was fed by the great one because a cat is so fluffy and cute.  The pain is so annoying to the great one.  For example, when they went to the pool the pain even spit water at the great ones face!  I also think he’s annoying because the pain even pinch her sometimes!  I don’t think that’s a nice way to treat others especially your own sister.  I also liked the illustrations that the illustrator made.

I recommend this book to a sister that has an annoying brother so they could learn a lesson.  I could also recommend this book to people that is always bothering other people so they could stop doing bad things. I rate this book 3 stars because I don’t like them both yelling at each other and saying mean things to each other.

Sincerely,

Thomas

The Hare and the Tortoise

hare-tortoise

Have you ever had a friend that brags? Then you should read, The Hare and the Tortoise. I think the hare is funny because the hare takes so many breaks. In the story, the hare want to verse the tortoise. The hare accepts the challenge. The hare was fooling around, but the tortoise kept on racing. Who will win? Read the book to find out.

My opinion is I love when the hare does funny stuff. For example, when he went to take a nap at the end! Also, he ate breakfast  in the beginning!  The hare went to sleep and he doesn’t   notice that  the  tortoise  is  close to the end.

  I recommend this book to two people who are going to have a race. One of them might do the same thing as the hare. You don’t want to do this because you are going to waste TIME! I’m going to give this book four stars because the kids might not understand it.

                I hope you enjoy reading this book review!

Love ,

Sophia

Hansel and Gretel

hansel-and-gretel-2Do you want read the best fairy tale ever?  Well, the book is called Hansel and Gretel.  The book is about 2 children who went to the woods to get some food.  But all of a sudden it starts getting dark and Hansel and Gretel got lost!  They cried father! Father!  Will their father be there in time to save them?

   I really enjoy reading the book, “Hansel and Gretel” because it has amazing illustrations and it looked like the illustrations came to life because they looked really real. The mean character was the grouchy step mother. When she was in bed, she told the father, “Tomorrow morning, let’s take the children to the woods and leave them there!” The next day, the mean step mother went to Hansel and Gretel’s house and said do you want to get some food? The children said yes! Once they got to the woods the wicked lady and the father left them in the woods!

I recommend this book to somebody who likes to read a lot of spooky fairy tales. I also recommend this book to somebody who is a lover of fairy tales. I gave this book 5 star because the illustrations felt so realistic and detailed. What I loved about the book and what made the book funny was when the evil witch. One part of the book she was eating an apple, the way she was eating was funny because her teeth were so big that she was eating the apple so funny.  Enjoy reading the book!

Sincerely,

Raquel

Pete the Cat

peteHave you ever played baseball with your friends? Then you should read Pete the Cat Play Ball, James Dean. Pete is main character. I think Pete is not sad because he did his best.

It was Pete’s turn  to play with the bat. Then Pete wanted to play ball with the rolls. Then it was Pete did not swing 4 times. Then he went to the next base, but someone hit the ball but he was to late Pete did his best. Will Pete win the game read the book to find out.

I enjoyed this book because I got so many favorite parts. One part is when they got a home runs . I also think that he will win because his teammates are getting A lot of home runs . I think Pete is happy because  his team is winning. I also think this book is great because Pete enjoyed the home runs.

My favorite part is when Pete won the game. The score was 6 to 3. For an example they gave so much home runs. I think that Pete is good at baseball and when he gets a point he says way to go.

I recommend this book to baseball player or to a kid that likes baseball. ~Miles

Goldilocks

goldilocksI am reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears so if you like bears you will like this book Goldilocks by Janice Russell. I think the main character is Goldi because they did not mention bears to many times. My opinion on goldilocks is that she makes mischief.

For the summary,  the main character is goldilocks .Goldi wanted to eat, sit, and sleep in someone else’s house.  For example, she broke baby bears chair. The cottage she was in, belonged to three bears. She kind of solved the problem by sleeping like a statue. Will she escape?

My opinion on Goldi is that she is sweet and a little naughty because she chose to go into someone else’s house without asking. Sweet, because she listens to her mom. For example, she went into the woods like her mom said! My favorite part was when she sat in the chairs. I think this book is fun or funny. For example, she always says something negative about mama and papa bears stuff and something about baby bears things. Goldilocks did not know she was in a cottage for bears. She not know she could make bears upset. She always tries mama and papa bears stuff and it is not right for her. Then she tries baby bears stuff and it is just right.

I recommend this book to little children who likes animals because Goldi  is a little girl who finds animals.  I also think they would like it. I give this book 5 stars and a thumbs up. My opinion is that the book is great. The moral of the story is to never touch or do anything that no one let you do. Enjoy the book. ~Mia

Hank Zipzer

heres_hankHave you ever been scared of getting grounded because you were bad? Did you lie about it? If yes, you should read Hank Zipzer 2 by Henry Winkler.  Hank needs memory because he always forgets work.  He gets treated badly.

Hank Zipzer has a spelling contest, and its report card day! On hank’s report card, he has 3d’S,and his friends cause more trouble by putting the report card in the salami machine.  Will Hank save the salami, or will it be bad forever? I enjoy this book because it’s funny. For example, Robert, the know-it-all shares stuff when he isn’t asked.  For example, Robert said “Fish help’s your mind. Maybe that’s why I’m so smart” when hank asked “you got the fish? Nick McKelty is very mean to Hank.  For example, Nick Mckelty said” ready to see a spelling master at work? Also Nick said ‘I just did not want you to feel bad, I knew every word” when he did not. That is a very mean thing to say to someone that is bad at something Nick should be treated badly because he is mean.  Papa Pete is Hank’s grandfather, and is very nice. He always understands Hank, and he helps Hank understand stuff.

I would recommend this book to that lies about anything because they will not lie anymore.  I give this book 5 star because the book is funny.   Everything made the book good. Happy reading! ~ Lucas

Captain Underpants

captainWould you ever play pranks on your school?   If you would, then read captain underpants!!!!  I think George is funny because he made Dr. Dipper poop. George also caused a lot of trouble at school because he is big pranker. George and Harold played a lot of pranks on their school and Mr. Krupp is planning to blackmail them. Will Mr. Krupp blackmail them? Read this book to find out.

I enjoy reading captain underpants because it is funny and the characters had humor. For example George shot the fake doggy doo doo, which is fake poop at Dr. Dipper which made him looked like he pooped. Captain underpants is a silly character. He is always naked. For example he tore down the red curtain from his office window and tied it around his neck. Then he took of his shoe, socks, shirt, pants and his awful toupee .That is a silly way to be captain underpants. I also liked the part when captain underpants was beating up Dr. Dipper because beating up Dr. Dipper was funny to me .The illustrations were nice because the graphics are eye catching.

 I would recommend this book for people who are silly and humorous. I also like to recommend this book to people who play pranks on others so they could learn lesson. I give this book 4 star because I liked the picture and the character. I enjoyed how the author made it looked like Dr. Dipper poop. The lesson they could learn is if you play pranks on your school you are going to get in trouble .But they could change the inappropriate humor to more appropriate humor.

Sincerely,

Kyle
