Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst is a book about a boy Alexander and how he had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. The day is terrible, horrible, no good and very bad because he woke up in a bed and his room was not clean. The best part is when he looks at the reader. That makes you feel terrible, horrible, no good and very bad for him. That’s why Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, very Bad Day by Judith Viorst is a good book. It is relatable.

The Giver by Lois Lowry is a great book about an old man who is sad and partially about trees. It is a very good book and deals with things that many old men deal with. Then it talks about trees. But the trees aren’t nearly as big a part of the book as the old man is, because the old man is the main part of the book.
My favorite part was when the old man looked at the medal he won called the John Newberry Medal. He won the medal because he was the best person at giving.
The Warm Place by Nancy Farmer is a book about a young boy with his animal friends who live in a place that is not cold. The boy is friends with one giraffe, one lizard, two snails and two rats, but one of the rats always hides behind the boy because he is shy.
While the boy and animal friends like the warm place, they want to go home because they like places that aren't as warm.
The best part was when he talked to the rat that’s not shy and the rat pointed at him. That part was fun.

Johnny Tremain by Esther Forbes is a book about a kid named Johnny who likes to carry his gun. He also has four friends, and lives in a house and sometimes rides in a boat and sometimes carries around a horn and he is in love with his life as a boy who wears a pirate hat.
The most interesting part of the book for me was when he held a gun and looked at some guy and there were people behind him. One of the guys was a british man. But he was mostly just a friend. The End.

Matilda by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake is a book about a cartoon girl who likes to read a lot with her penguin friend who lives in an orange bubble and likes to live in Matilda’s books.
Sometimes Matilda gets really tired so she likes to stack up her books and sit on them. This normally makes her happy, and she looks at her other books and likes to think about why she’s tired and why she’s happy.
My favorite part of the book was when Matilda read a bunch of her books, because I also read books.

Old Yeller by Walt Disney is a book about an old person who likes to yell. He lives near a river that has a tree. There is also grass and other plants.
The part that was the best for me to read was probably when he talked about the tree and how the tree was shaped. The tree was not straight up and down, it was sideways so a person could sit on it. It also had branches and small plants on it and it splits to look like two trees.
There is also a boy and a dog. End.

My Brother Sam is Dead by Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier is a book about a guy's brother Sam and how he died. The focus is on the guy primarily but a large amount of focus is sometimes focused on the guy's brother, named Sam.
Sam also has a brother, but Sam's brother is a guy who does not die. He will eventually, but the guy doesn't die in this book because Sam is the one who dies.
Also this book is written in the first person. This is why the book’s title says my brother Sam is dead.
