Comments:


I love this book.  I read this book for a project when I was in 4th grade in the States.  I got to know a lot of things about Babe Ruth, and about baseball.  I recommend this book for lower school students, because it is easy to read, and it doesn’t have hard vocabulary.   But, I recommend this book to middle school students, too.  It would help them understand more bout baseball, like I did.  I hope you’ll like the book.

This book was very interesting.  There is a world of unbelievable things.  I had fun reading this book.  It has lots of imagination.  This book is a book I read at school.  It was a school book. I didn’t think a book used in school would be this funny and interesting.  I recommend everybody to read this book.  It might be a little hard for lower school students, but give it a try.  I promise you that you’ll love it!

Comments:

I like this story. I think it was very tricky.  It’s an mystery book that has lots of clues.  I recommend this book for people who like adventures, and mystery.  The author of this book is Rick Riordan.  The same author of the Percy Jackson Series.  It is like the Percy Jackson series, but a little different.  If you want to find out the difference of these books, I recommend you to read this book.

Comments:

I think this book is a funky story.  Its funny too. The main character, Dennis, has a very weird personality.  He loves Vogue.  Vogue is a fashion magazine, and is usually for women.  He has a cool personality as well though.  Dennis is the ace of the school soccer team.  He is the best striker in the soccer team.  Most times, they win because of Dennis.  If you like funny stories, this book is for you.  I recommend it.

COMMENTS:

This story’s author is the same as the person who wrote the Percy Jackson Series.  This story is like the continued virgin of the Percy Jackson Series. I think the people who actually read Percy Jackson would like this book. For the people who haven’t read Percy Jackson, I recommend them to read Percy Jackson before reading the Lost Hero. For the people who have read the Percy Jackson Series, I recommend them to read this book, because this is my favorite book I have.
