The setting of this story
is 1946 in a little town called Clear River. The title comes from the fact
that there are only two families
in the town without a Christmas tree because neither can afford one. Addie,
the main character, finds out her teacher is going to give a tree to one of the
families. They have a contest. Find out the ending for yourself. I would recommend
this book to a friend because it was funny, sad, and if I was rating it,
I would give it a superior.
Brighty of the
Grand Canyon AUTHOR
Marguerite Henry REVIEWED BY
The story takes
place in the Grand Canyon in Arizona during the late 1800s. The main idea
is that animals can be very smart, even outwit humans sometimes. The author's
message is you shouldn't treat animals like they are dumb because they can give
it right back to people. I would recommend this novel to a friend because it
is funny, exciting, and most of all, you don't know what's going to happen next.
of the Twisters AUTHOR
Buckman REVIEWED BY
The title of this story comes from the fact that
there were two or three tornadoes in the city on that night. I liked the author's
writing style because he used words that were easy to understand. The message
of the story is to never give up. The author's trying to get
across to readers that it is always good to help people in need. I would recommend this book to a friend
because there's never a dull moment, because it tells a story which could probably
be true, and because it's
exciting to see what the family does in a situation like that.
Great Idea AUTHOR
Ann M. Martin REVIEWED
Kristy is the main character in this
series from The Babysitter's Club. She is the originator of the Club. She begins
the Club from her house using her friends as vice-president and secretary.
The main idea is to think about the pros and cons even if you think you have a
great idea. I think you should
read this book because it is funny, realistic, and it can teach you not to do
anything dramatic without first thinking about it.
The Cat Detective AUTHOR
Linda Stewart REVIEWED BY
Sam is a cat that solves cases. In this story Sugary's
owners have been robbed. A missing jade and a smell of turpentine is all Sam
has to go on. Sam, Sugary, and Spike solve the case of the midding jade. I would
recommend this book to anyone
who loves cats, mysteries, or both.
Go Eat Worms AUTHOR
R.L. Stine REVIEWED BY
story revolves around Todd Barstow whose hobby is collecting worms.
He enjoys worms so much he carries them around and even uses them to scare
people, especially his sister Regina. Read the book to find out how the worms
get revenge on Todd at the end of the story.
Great Brain AUTHOR
D. Fitzgerald REVIEWED BY
The story takes
place in Addenville, Utah in 1896. The novel's title is a reference made
by all the town people in describing who they thought is the smartest person. This humorous novel describes Tom Dennis, who is a sly and exteremely smart
person. He manipulates people into doing what is best for him and for themselves.
I would recommend this novel to a friend because it is humorous and witty.
The book illustrates that
self confidence affects everything you do and how people perceive you.
