Chocolat (Tie-In) by Joanne Harris
Chocolat (Tie-In)

iluvanimals517, January 1, 2008

It doesn't matter how old you are, or where your from, this book will inspire all. This book is like a truffle. When you first bite into it, you can't taste the flavor, in the first second or two. After you chew it throughly, you finally taste flavor, and it melts in your mouth, spreading throught your body, and soon melting your heat. You fall in love with the truffle. That is exactly what happened with me, when I read this book, and I recommend this to all who need something sweet.

Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke
Dragon Rider

iluvanimals517, January 1, 2008

This book was truly work of magic. It's about a young boy, who meets a dragon. Little did he know that he was about to embark on a dangerous adventure, and find out the prophcey of the Dragon Rider, was about him. Cornelia Funke has such a vivid imagination, that everyone can't help but love, and cherish. When you turn a page, it crinkles slightly, inviting you into a world of adventure. It is written cleverly, and light. The words flow together like a powerful mudflow, keeping you on the edge of your seat, waiting for more. This book has the most common magical creatures, like dragons, brownies, and dragon riders, but yet it is not like other magical books. Dragon Rider is unique in it's own way, it's one of those books that you don't come pass everyday, and if you do, you want to hold on to it forever, and read it over and over again.

Surviving the Applewhites
Surviving the Applewhites

iluvanimals517, December 29, 2007

This book is one of my favorites! It was written beautifully, and it's obvious in every line! The story is about Jake, a delinquent who ends up staying at the Applewhites' house. E.D. is in no mode ready to share her school project with him, or worse, her home. Jake brings adventure, and spark to everyone's life, even if he hates it there. He has an effect on everyone, and they soon start to change. And before Jake knows it, so has he.

Sammy Keyes and the Hollywood Mummy by Wendelin Van Draanen
Sammy Keyes and the Hollywood Mummy

iluvanimals517, December 29, 2007

This is a great book, and it doesn't matter how old you are. Sammy Keyes is the clever tomboy, that we all love. Wendelin Van Draanen makes all her books have a magical feeling, where you can not put the book down, no matter how hard you try. She makes every word come alive, and dance before your eyes. Another book, that will bring you great laughter!

Mick Harte Was Here by Barbara Park
Mick Harte Was Here

iluvanimals517, December 29, 2007

A very touching book. A great author is all you need to make a story like this great, and Barbara Park was the perfect author to write this. It was smart to make this a young reader level, since thats mostly the audience she wanted. The theme is simple: Wear a helmet when you ride a bike, or wear the sorrow and guilt for the people you love. A winner!
