My Review of Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, #1)Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My 8year old's review:

I think it is LOL is funny. I think everyone should read it. Get it from the library. I like it better than the Big Nate books. I like how this book is about greg's life and all the funny things that happen to him. It makes me think about what high school is gonna be like.

Greg only has one friend and the rest of the guys are bulies. They pick on him, and one of them actually punched him!

[I asked my daughter what happened next? Did he fight back? My kid says "No because it's called Diary of a Wimpy Kid, not Diary of a Bully." Lol okay then kiddo]

I like the pictures and how they're mixed with pages that don't have pictures too. I think this is more fun to read than some of the other books my mom picks out. I want her to buy me all of them.

Book Review of Carrot by Vanita Oelschlager

A Review by KK

 An ordinary house cat, Carrot envies the life of the pampered yacht cat Buffy and dreams of all she could do with such luxury, but comes to realize that her life is actually richer in many ways.

I love Carrot. it is a cute book. It should be a library book so other people can enjoy it. And if people enjoy it you could make it a book to buy at the store. I enjoy the whole book. I like that the pics are beautiful.                                                         Thank you Vanita  Oelschlager

The Riotous Rocket Ship Robbery by Kim Donovan

The Riotous Rocket Ship Robbery (St Viper's School for Super Villains, #1)The Riotous Rocket Ship Robbery by Kim Donovan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Review posted on Got Fiction?

My 7 year old daughter's review:

"I like it. The pictures are cool, especially in color. I want more pictures though. But the bad guys were funny. My favorite part was where he said Werewolf Alert."

My review:
This was a fun take on Supers-this time we have school for the super villains. If anyone ever saw that movie Sky High it reminded me of that-where they fly to a school especially for Super Villains and they have normal school behavior. There are the cool kids, the new kids, the bullies, it’s a good set-up. It was quite a crack up.

The characters went to classes like "World Domination" with teachers named "Dr. Super Evil" and I caught myself smiling a lot as my daughter read this to me.

The fact that their teachers would have accepted "trying to take over the world" as an excuse for being tardy cracked my daughter up. I got a kick out of the antics since it’s a school of villains, the teachers are a wee bit different than your normal high school or middle school.
I think it was a nice break from reading the Jewel Fairies and Captain Underpants that we read almost every night.

The only thing I'd suggest is that 7 is a bit young to enjoy it to its fullest. I'd recommend this chapter book for age 9 and up.
