The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell

The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell

By Chris Colfer

The Land of Stories is one of the best books I have read so far, and that's saying a lot, because I read all the time. :D Anyways, it's about two twins- Alex and Conner- who are different in many ways. Alex is the smart kid and Conner is the lazy kid. They travel through a book into a realm called 'the Land of Stories', which is the FAIRYTALE world! They meet many new friends and discover shocking secrets. This is the real-deal book- great plot, realistic characters, and the thing I like most are all the COINCIDENCES and how you actually get to know what happens to the fairytale characters after the story! Reading this, I just found out so many things that I've be longing to know about fairytales! It explains everything- why the villians did what, and this book is only telling about a small, small section of fairytales! Don't forget though- it's a GREAT book that you MUST read or you will seriously miss out! I mean, why isn't this more popular? It totally crushes the Hunger Games in terms of awesomeness! Anyways, Chris Colfer is a great author. I've already read all the 5 books, so instead of rating each one I'll just say that YOU REALLY SHOULD READ ALL 5 BOOKS!!! Everything makes perfect sense! There are explanations for every, single, action that every single fairytale character has ever done! All wrote into 5 great books that have great action, drama, and twists! (I'm still waiting for the 6th book.) And YES, the series gets better and better after every book! :D

Petey was the one who created Dog Man by blowing them up. Dog Man is a cop that likes the chief so much that he gets in trouble for jumping on him.

Holes (Thorndike Press Large Print Literacy Bridge Series)

Holes (Thorndike Press Large Print Literacy Bridge Series)

By Louis Sachar

Stanley Yelnats is always in the wrong place at the wrong time, and it's all thanks to his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather. When a pair of shoes inexplicably fall on Stanley's head, it's the last straw: it turns out that they belong to the famous baseball player Clyde Livingston, who had donated them to the orphanage to be auctioned. In court, Stanley's "they fell out of the sky" reason sounds pretty lame to his own ears, and it does to the court judge, too. He gives Stanley and his parents a choice. Either Stanley serves time or he goes to Camp Green Lake. Stanley was never rich enough to go to camp, so of course, he picks CGL, but it turns out to be beyond his wildest dreams - in the worst way possible. Barely any water, scorching conditions, hostile campmates, selfish camp directors, and having to dig a six-by-six foot hole every day is nothing like the camps Stanley has heard of. But when a miraculous encounter with Zero, a fellow camper, shows that their family lines may have crossed before, Stanley's wrong-place-at-the-wrong-time curse has a chance to be lifted.

Escaping the Giant Wave

Escaping the Giant Wave

By Peg Kehret

After reading the summary for this book, I was ready to dive in with some anticipation for a good book. To start off, the details and imagery in this book were creative and thoughtful. There was so much excitement in this novel, and it felt like the danger would never end. One thing, however, that I wish the book had was more time to develop. I felt that the whole plot was a bit rushed, and that by the end of the book, I didn't really know the characters better than when it had started. This book is less a story, and more an event to tell about, and that's why I feel like I enjoyed it less. It is an easy read, but might be mildly scary for younger readers, so I would recommend the book for ages 8+

The Swiss Family Robinson

The Swiss Family Robinson

By Johann David Wyss

If you like stories of survival against all odds, where a group of people must fight nature herself in an epic contest of wills, then there is, in fact, a book for you. The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann David Wyss was published in 1812, but the age does not make it boring; it does quite the contrary. When the Robinsons fall victim to a shipwreck, they must fight in an epic battle of nature versus man for mere survival. Follow the story of this eighteenth century family as they salvage the wreck, build the magnificent dwelling of Felsenheim, discover, and thrive on the desolate island that is their verdant prison. One of the major conflicts is definitely the first rainy season they encounter, full of fierce hurricanes and storms. The other would be their constant battle against massive snakes, lions, and hyenas. The turning point in the book is when the family finally gets to the island from the wreck. The family faces a persisting threat of death on their remote tropical island, the location of which is not specified. The Swiss Family Robinson is exciting, and breathtaking in the description. What I like about the book is how consistent the author stays with the region they are in, (native plants, wildlife, trees, etc.,) and how easy it is to picture the island.

This novel is celebrated for its profound themes of friendship, hope, and the quest for freedom. It has received widespread acclaim, including the prestigious Newbery Medal for its contribution to children's literature. Overall, I loved reading this book. You should read it too!
