    Book Review——Coraline & the Secret Door.
    This story is really interesting and the writer of the book is Neil Gaiman. The main character of this book is Coraline. Coraline and her family moved to a new house. Coraline found out there was a small door in living room. Coraline tried to open the door, but nothing happened. At night Coraline followed two mice and she went into the small door. She found out that there is another mother. Everything is same as her life. Only their eye is different. Every night Coraline went into that small door, but she realized that something is wrong in this world. That woman is not her mother she was the something not very clear.
    I have read many books from Neil Gaiman. The book I liked to read the most is this book. The story is thrilled and you really want to see what is happen next. The writer describe everything in details, the story is third person limited. The Character I like is Coraline. Coraline actually is very brave, she escape and saved her family. When the time the “Mother” cached her family and tried to menace Coraline. Coraline did not afraid she played a game with her “Mother”. At that time, I thought Coraline will give up but she did not. Coraline did everything in the best, at last she fight back at her “Mother”. If I am in the same trouble like Coraline, maybe I will just give up or die in the “Mother” ‘s hand. This story is different than the other story. It more like turn a fairy tale into a dark fairy tale. Dark Fairy tale is the story really scared not for the Children. The story is really magical every sentence is making me scare. If you read this book at night, you actually will have a bad dream.
    At last I really hope (no child) everyone would like this scare story. If you liked to read thrilled story I wish you really should read this story. Thank you.

    Book Review—“Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief ”
    I read the book “ Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief ”.The main character is Percy Jackson,He is the son of Poseidon.In this book, Percy tries to find the missing lightning that is from Zeus. It is really a good book that include the greek heroes and monsters.I think the description of the monsters is great,I felt just like it is real.
    I like Annabeth very much,although I don’t think she has a good temper,but she is really a good friend,she help Percy a lot on the trip.
    So I hope everyone to read this book,you will like it very much!

Percy is a student in the Nancy School,he is not a good student,he have MBD and dyslexia,but then he find out he is the son of the Poseidon ,and he move to a summer camp that all of the people are half god,half human, that is a huge impact.In this book ,he tries to find the missing lightning that is from Zeus. In the trip,he have to fight with the monsters that want to kill him.It is really a good book that include the greek heroes and monsters.I think the description of the monsters is great,I felt just like it is real.Also,the plot of the book is really good,who can think about there are greek god in the word and just live in the Los angels!
    I like Annabeth very much,she is the daughter of the Athena. Although I don’t think she has a good temper,but she is really a good friend,she is very smart and agility, she helps Percy a lot in the trip.

    Book Review——Mr. Stink
    The book I read is called Mr. Stink. This is a funny story and close to life. The main character is Chloe she is a quite girl. Until she meets a man called “Mr. Stink”, he is really stink and nobody like him. Chloe is interesting at him everyday she meets him on the street. Chloe talks with Mr. Stink and she found out he is very literacy. Chloe makes a big discussion she wants to help Mr. Stink, help him to find a home. So Chloe secretly let Mr. Stink lives in her house.
    When you read this book you might think it is really strange, how could a girl let a beggar stay with her? But actually not, Chloe is a kind girl she just wants to help Mr. Stink. The idea is to help him find a home, but Chloe know no one would like Mr. Stink stays in their house. So Chloe just let Mr. Stink lives in her house. Also Mr. Stink is not same as the beggar in the street. He is more different he has a little black dog and a poor hat. Mr. Stink is not a “poor person”(I mean from personality), he is knowledge and indebted. Before many years Mr. Stink is an inquire person, but because he has no money so he became to a beggar. Every sentence Mr. Stink says it is all greats it tells you never give up and be more politely.
    I like this book because it is funny. Chloe’s family are funny too, her sister is so busy. From morning to night all the different clubs she need to have (ex: Math, English, language…). Chloe’s mother is a strict woman she always let Chloe and her sister to do homework. But when every time Chloe’s mother meets Mr. Stink she always says “OH! THAT IS SO STINK!” and the picture would draw a black smock (that is the stink power). The black smock around a lady who wears a beautiful dress but her face is scare. Also her family talks are really interesting too. Chloe’s dad likes to sing Rock, but Chloe’s mother disagrees at his idea. Every time his parents’ talk is really funny. I would like to say this books should everyone read it, when the time unhappy this book would make you laugh.
    At last thank you for looking at review. Thank you very much.

    Book review- “The Worst Things In Life Are Also Free”
    I read the book “The Worst Things In Life Are Also Free”, which is a book in the series “Dear Dumb Diary”. This book uses first person point of view, the main character is Jamie, she is a funny girl, and careless. The book “The Worst Things In Life Are Also Free” talked about some funny stories that happens on Jamie and her friend. The summary of the book is: Jamie ‘s aunt will go to a fantastic place, and Jamie, Angeline and Isabella can go with her, but they must earn the money themselves, which means that they must get 200$ in 3 weeks! Jamie, Angeline and Isabella thought about lots of ways to get the money: opened a lemonade shop, baby-sitting, helped people to walk dog, but they all failed. First, Angeline drank all the lemonade that they made, second, when Isabella change diapers, she even did not put the old diaper off, third, Jamie tried to walk the dog, but then, she began to walk the kid! Finally, they earned 200$ and have a happy trip. I really really really think everyone should read this book, the book is very easy, and it is really funny!

    It was a very interesting story and it will be more interesting if you read the Charlie and the chocolate factory, it is a story about fighting aliens and cool stuffs, it tells us funny thing like killing aliens and making jokes about the president, it was really fun. It can make us laugh, angry, sad, disappointed and scary.
    It was about traveling in space with the great glass elevator, the people in earth thought they were aliens and were very scared, they went in to the space hotel and the president of America told them in the Radio broadcast they want to invitation then to the white house, but there are space aliens on the hotel so they run away with the other space ship which had found them.
    When they are back, Mr. Willy Wonka want Mr and Ms Bucket’s farther and mother stand, up so he used a secrit thing that can make people yonger, but the greedy old fellows drink to much and turns into babys and another one vanished. But Mr. Wanka fanally get then all right. Then the people from white house invitation then to eat so finally the old fellows stands up and ran!
