STONE FOX

Title: STONE FOX

Author: John Reynolds Gardiner

Genre: Non-Fiction

Rating:  ★★★★☆

This book is about Little-Willy and his grandfather and Willy’s partner Searchlight. Little-Willy is going to join the dog-sled-race with Searchlight to help his grandfather’s problem who has a disease. His rival is going to be an Indian called STONEFOX.

I chose this book because I like dogs and there was a picture of a dog on the cover. The other reason is because I’ve never read books about a dog-sled-race. I think people who don’t like to read can read it easily because it doesn’t have so many difficult words and it’s a short story.

The Knight at Dawn

BOOK TITLE : The Knight at Dawn

AUTHOR : Mary Pope Osborne

Genre : Adventure

BOOK RATING : ★★★★☆

SUMMARY : There was the tree house which has magical power. It takes us anywhere we want if we wish. One day, an eleven year old boy named Jack and his seven year old sister named Annie went to the tree house and they decided to go to Japan where ninjas appeared.

COMMENT :

Have you ever met a real live ninja? I like this book because Jack and Annie came to Japan!! The book gives a little misunderstanding of Japan but the story-line was good so I like this book. I was deeply impressed by a phrase in the story, “Use nature. Be nature. Follow nature.” When I read this word the magic tree house flashed into my mind. I can feel excited by this story.
