Angus and Sadie, by Cynthia Voigt

Mister and Missus lived on a farm that they owned,but they wanted a dog, a dog that could watch the farm and help with the chores.So they decided they will get one in the spring.They wanted a Boarder Collie Mongrel,once spring came they got two Boarder Collie puppies a big strong black one, Angus, and a little brown sorrow one, Sadie. Angus grows up to be strong,clever,and brave.Sadie grows up to be well...Sadie isn't a fast learner and she doesn't obey that well either...she might need some work.

What I like about this story is that I love big friendly dogs and I like this book because all this book is about is two sweet dogs who grow up on a farm and this book is about their adventures on the farm.What I don't like about this book is that Mister and Missus aren't that smart.Like when they chose half boarder collie half mongrel,mongrels are mutts so they would have to get a boarder collie or just a boarder collie half some other dogs they wanted.And when Missus sells vegetables Sadie is with her,even though she has to tell everyone she doesn't like people or kids,I would put the dog in the house,not have kids coming up and wanting really badly to pet the dog!The people in here are just really weird...

Hotel for Dogs, by Lois Duncan

Liz and Bruce have to go to their Dad's Aunts house until they find a house of their own,Liz and Bruce don't like it at all,especially Liz because she had to leave her dog,Bebe,because their Great Aunt Alice is allergic to dogs.After a few days when they were living there a dog wandered into the house during supper and went up into Aunt Alice's sewing closet,after supper Liz told Bruce about what she saw and they went looking for her.They found her in Aunt Alice's sewing closet with three puppies!They gave them some of the leftover meat loaf from that night.they both decided that the next day Liz will say she had a stomach ache and will stay hom so Aunt Alice wont sew because that's Liz's bedroom,and she will take care of the dogs.Then Bruce will go to school and think of a plan.But then more dogs that need to be fed,groomed,walked,and cared for are stepping into their lives!What will they do!?!?

What I like about the story is that I love dogs and I think I would just keep two of the dogs and not keep them around Aunt Alice then give the other dogs to people in my family who could take care of them or just give them to people who could take care of them.This book is kind of like Junie B. Jones books where she would find the dogs and keep them in her room and give the ones she can't fit to her friends and her teacher.This book is a very good book because it explains every thing that is going on very clearly and it gives you the idea of what's going on right away.

Bad Hare Day by R.L Stine

Tim absolutely loves magic tricks and he would do anything to go to one of Amaz-O's show.He asked his parents but they said no because it was so late at night.Then he sneaks out of the house the night of the show (and he has to take his bratty little sister with him or she will tell his parents he's sneaking off!) .But then when he got there he volunteered for a trick.But what he didn't know was he had to disappear. When he disappeared he just went in the basement of the place and he found Amaz-O's secret magic tricks but they aren't just secret they are scary like the snakes that come out and balls that multiply and bounce every where in all directions...

What I like about the book is that magic is fun and anyone can learn it and magic just will lite up a persons day.What I don't like about the story is that magic tricks are pretty cool just magic tricks aren't supposed to be scary there supposed to be fun and suprizing not like killing magic tricks thats just...not normal.

Say Cheese and Die - Again! by R.L Stine

Greg still has that camera and he doesn't want to let go of it but his English teacher Sourball is very grouchy,too grouchy.Greg told everyone about the camera and everyone thinks he is crazy, Sourball, (Mr.Saur), tells Greg to bring the camera to school and take a class photo of everyone...

What I like about the story is that it's like Say Cheese and Die! Continues...But really it's kind of the same but it's more boring because you pretty much know what's going to happen because it is almost the same as the last book just with a new person in it that doesn't believe you.

Deep Trouble by R.L Stine

Billy and Sheena get to go to their uncle's house for the summer and he is a underwater scientist so they get to swim in the oceon a lot,but they aren't supposed to go in the coral reefs but Billy likes them so pretty and peaceful,he goes in there,but there is something dangerous and part human part underwater creature...

What don't like about the story is that on the cover it doesn't look like what it sounds it just look like a shark and that's all not something creepy and weird.What I do like about the book is that my mom loves underwater things and sea creatures so if I would show this book to my mom and she read it she would no exactly what to do if she was trapped with a shark.I think.

Ghost Beach, by R.L. Stine

Jerry get to visit his Aunt and Uncle in New England Jerry's sister Terri loves grave yards and Jerry hates them,but when he finds a cave he can't wait to explore it!Then kids tell him about the story of a ghost who haunts deep deep inside the cave and is over 300 years old...

What I don't like about this book is that I don't think there is such thing as ghosts and I don't think people realize that there isn't such things as ghosts but,there is such thing as spirits or demons and they might not just spirits or demons there could be things that people call ghosts and they could be what science hasn't figured out yet,and I don't think spirits really hurt people or haunt people or else it would be all over the news for attacks and people wouldn't be dressing up as them for Halloween.The book is also really not scary at all I didn't even get a little chill and none of my neck hairs stood up either.This book is kind of,it's hard to say it,but it was kind of not really boring.That was hard to say!

Say Cheese and Die! by R.L Stine

Greg stole a camera from a persons house and Greg doesn't know it but this camera is a very special camera.Because when he takes pictures something weird happens the picture doesn't ever turn out right it always turns out different and it is really weird because when he took a picture of his friend and it turned that his friend was laying on the ground sprawled on his back,his neck bent in a odd angle and his eyes shut tight...

What I don't like about the book is I love photography but I really don't think R.L was letting Greg get a nice camera because Greg talks about cameras a lot but he doesn't at least get a nice one??What I do like about the story is the story seems so long.This story really tells about Greg's life so barely even half way in the beginning of the story you know already what's going on!!
