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.

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!!

Attack of the Mutant by R.L Stine

Skipper loves comic books and he has a ton of them in his room.He loves a comic book series called "The Masked Mutant" which is about a mutant who is trying to rule the universe!But then one day when he is going to the library he sees this really weird place it was kind of cool too it was reddish pink and had yellow and blue in it too..It looked like The Masked Mutant's secret headquarters!!!Did the Masked Mutant really live in this town??

What I like about the story is it is really awesome that this kid collects comics,most people these days don't collect or keep comic books anymore his comic books are cool it would just be nicer if R.L used "The Tick" or Spiderman" or "Batman" then that would be really awesome.What I also like about the story is the story seemed so long!Lots of stories seem really short and not really much of a story.

Why I am Afraid of Bees by R.L Stine

Gary needs a vacation and he needs one just for him and he has to have one soon,a long vacation too.The reason why he needs one is because he gets beet up every day even his sister hates him.Then his wish gets granted he gets to switch bodies with a kid,but when he finds out who the kid is he isn't exactly sure he wants to switch anymore because this kid isn't exactly a kid...

What I like about the story is that I would like to change into someone too if I really had to I don't exactly want to,I just like changes.This book is also kind of like "Phantom of the Auditorium" because most books don't have phantoms in them and most scary stories don't have bees in them either.

The Haunted Mask ll, by R. L. Stine

Steve will always remember Carly Beth's Halloween mask from last year for Halloween he though it was totally awesome,but he wants to get one just like it so he is wondering where she got hers ,at first she doesn't want him to do it so she doesn't want to tell him because she did the wrong thing and she doesn't want him to be sorry,but then she couldn't help it she told him he went there that night he took his friend too,the man that sold them wasn't there then his friend and him found some doors to the basement where all of the masks were...Was he going to steel them or would he wait 'till the next day????

What I like about the story is the same reason why I like "The Haunted Mask" except this is with a different person and he might steel it or he will wait.The story is almost the same as the first one.

Phantom of the Auditorium by R.L Stine

Brooke's best friend Zeke gets the new role for the phantom and his directer says that the play was cursed but no one believed her. Everyone thought she was trying to trick them.Zeke really loves to dress up and scare every one on the cast so he is really in to it,mayby a little too far into it,oh well it is really fun anyway to dress up and act,but it isn't that fun when the night comes and a light comes crashing down on the stage...

What I like about the story is that most stories I mean a lot don't have phantoms in them,I don't know why because phantoms are awesome but they just aren't and this is like the only story I have ever read with a phantom so this story was exiting when I first saw it.This story is very scary and it tells kind of how to deal in Middle School when people are really mean.

The Haunted Mask by R.L Stine

Carly Beth gets teased at her school and she doesn't like it like most people but she can't help not to ignore them.This month she is getting teased because of her Halloween costume and this year her mom wants her to be a duck but she of course is not going to be that for Halloween she wants to be something else that will scare the wits out of those boys.When she gets a mask a really scary mask.She loves it but she didn't get to scare those boys on Halloween,but there is something weird about that mask,she's still wearing it...

What I like about this story is this book is about Halloween and it is almost Halloween!!!This book is not that scary but it is scary a little bit.This book is also cool because lots of people want to pay there friends back but they shouldn't and this book is kind of like a moral in a way telling kids not to pay their friends back,just don't be friends with them or just ignore them and go on with your day without thinking about them.

The Werewolf of Fever Swamp by R.L Stine

Grady and his family moved to Florida during Christmas Vacation in the middle of a swamp. Every night Grady keeps on hearing the angry howls coming from a dog in the night.His father has six swamp reindeer and one of them dies and everyone thinks it's Grady's dog because his dog looks somewhat like a wolf and acts a bit wild too.Is it really that dog???

What I like about the story is I really love big muscular dogs and I like Wolves too so when I read this story I wanted to jump in and take the dog and train it and keep it,the story really tells you what the dog looks like and what the dog does and it tells you how Grady found the dog and how protective the dog is.

The Beast From The East by R.L Stine

Ginger and her identical twin brothers ,Pat and Nat,are going are going to a camping trip with their parents and go deep into the woods.First of all when they got there they got lost plating hide and seek.Not a problem at all,Ginger had to go to a dumb nature camp anyway,but then when they get deeper in the woods everything is very strange,the trees are huge and the bushes are and plants are purple and the grass is a dark yellow.Then Ginger and her brothers meat the beasts from the east,they look like huge gorillas with their fur blue and their skin a raspberry sort of coser with blueberry in it,too.But then the beasts say they want to play tag,not a kind of "Tag Your It!!"it's more of "Tag you are it the winners live and the losers get eaten" kind of tag...

What I don't like about the book is the cover,R.L calls them beasts but from what they look like on the cover I think they are cute especially with the fangs.Maybe they should just add red eyes and toe nail fungus that is what I like about the cover is the cuteness.What I do like about the book is I love nature and I would love it if I was there and I would probably call my dad with my cell phone!Or I would say "No I am not playing this game!!!!I also love the name Ginger because I also like the spice.

Return of the Mummy by R.L Stine

Gabe is going to Egypt and he is a little nervous from the last incident he had with the mummy's so he isn't so sure about going ,but he goes anyway.When he gets there he has to meet his uncle in the airport.At first he thought his uncle was going to come in dressed as a mummy or dressed as something else and embarrass him.When his uncle did pick him up he actually wasn't dressed as anything!!After a few days in Egypt Gabe's uncle gave him a necklace with a scarab bug in it (it is a type of beetle that the Egyptians believed it was good luck.)After that they were going to Gabe's Uncles pyramid that he worked in.When they finally got in a pyramid they saw a walking mummy coming toward Gabe's Uncle...

What I like about the story is I like social studies and we are learning about archaeologists and that's what this book is also about is archaeologists and they are trying to find a tomb with a specific person inside.I also think Egypt is very interesting.The book is also kind of confusing too because you kind of had to figure out what was happening.

Monster Blood by R.L Stine

Evan has to go with his great-aunt Kathryn but she is really creepy and when he goes there he has no friends but his dog and he can't stand it there when he was walking is dog,Trigger,he actually met someone!A girl...Oh well her name was Andrea, she was at least someone his age or maybe a little bit older but they became friends.One day when they were taking Trigger for a walk they went into town and saw a toy store they went inside and it wasn't as clean as they expected,there was dust everywhere and they still did see cool thing,Evan found a can of slimy goo when they got home they Evan and Andrea played with it for a little while until Trigger ate it,it at first chocked him because he was chocking really bad!Then Evan pulled it out of the dogs mouth.Then after a few days it started growing and growing and something wierd happens.

What I like about the story is that this book also reminds me of my little brothers,they,since they are boys would pick the goo,my other sisters would not pick the goo and nor would they play with it,I guess it reminds me of me,too.The book is very well written and it tells details,too.I don't like books with too much detail but with some detail.There are other books in this series and I am looking for reading those ones too!I might write that one.

A Night in Terror Tower by R.L Stine

Sue and her brother Eddie are going to London and they are going on lots of tours with their tourist and other people who want a tour,too (of course).But then while they are going to a castle they can't find their tourist when they reach the tower where people were slaves and killed.They keep on seeing this creepy man with red eyes and a hood on with a ax in his hand and very scrunched over because of his back. Then they keep on going back in time and seeing weird things and they are being chased by the guy with red eyes and it is just very confusing.

What I don't like about this book is it isn't just very confusing it is too confusing,I had to read it twice and I still don't get it that's why this one is kind of later then the others because I was still trying to figure out if I should review it or not and if I should just cross it off my list.That is the only thing I didn't like about it I did like the kid's personality's and the book was pretty good when I wasn't to confused.This book is like about castles and princes and princesses and all those fancy really old castles.So if you like that kind of stuff this book is the perfect one.

Stay Out of the Basement by R.L Stine

Margaret and Casey's father is doing some experiments in the basement and he tells them not to go down there but of course when he leaves the basement they go down there,that's when they meet all his weird plants that is down there like a real live breathing tree and some other really cool plants.But that's when the experiments are starting to get a little too far and their dad is starting to do a lot of weird things like sprouts are coming from his head and he is eating plant food...

What I like about the book is the weirdness because whenever there is a book and it has the craziest cover ever it's gotta be mine when I've got the money.Because this book has a really weird cover I mean like who usually sees books with a green hand coming from a door with all these vines rowing all over it!This book is a scary book,but I don't think it is scary enough.This book is like "You Can't Scare Me!" but with leafy green monsters instead of mud monsters.

How to Kill a Monster, by R. L. Stine

Gretchen and her step-brother,Clark,have to go to there grandparents house for the summer and they hate it there there grandpa is practically deaf and there grandma just wants to bake they have no telephone,no TV,nothing to do but explore.The only thing is that grandpa always eats in his bed in the morning and doesn't eat at the table and grandma makes a ton of food but when it's supper,lunch,or breakfast time she's isn't eating any of it.Nothing else weird write?NOPE,the only last thing is the upstairs room,the one with the key in it,the one that you always here weird noises from and you always see crumbs buy the door...

What I like about the book is the adventure in it.This book is a lot like other stories that have monsters in it like "Stay Out Of The Basement"the show "Power Puff Girls"except it doesn't have super heroes and fighting and it just has a monster in it that two kids try to kill.

Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes by R.L Stine

Joe Burton's dad loves lawn ornaments and he loves his garden there next door neighbor ,Mr.McCall and and Moose,like their garden,too,but when the Burton's won last year with their tomato's (the Burton's are Joe's family) Mr. McCall kind of got a little more competitive and said he wanted to grow something new.One day it was a bright day and his father wanted to go get some new lawn ornaments for the lawn.He got two ugly lawn gnomes.Except after he got the lawn gnomes crazy things have been going on,like tomatoes being smashed and veggies being crushed to pieces.

What I like about this story is lawn gnomes rock and the book gives a very well describing of the lawn gnomes,also,I like the cover(just it's not as well as "The Barking Ghost")because it shows what the lawn gnomes are doing and in the story it tells why they do it.

Night of The Living Dummy by R.L Stine

Lindy and Kris are twin sisters and they look the same on the outside but are true opposites on the outside,that's what it's like for most twins,Lindy and Kris like to bicker a LOT,well,they don't LIKE to bicker they just do.They don't bicker all the time though they also like to tell secrets with each other and they like to do things together and they like to be ventriloquist's,well they weren't ventriloquist's at first until Lindy found Slappy then that's when the trouble started.It was one day when they were going to go look at the house next door construction workers were working on and in the dumpster their was what looked like a child at first that's really what Lindy and Kris thought it was,but when they went closer they saw it was a dummy and they didn't need to worry,but when they found the dummy of course Lindy had to have it,Kris got jealous.Then she asked her father for a dummy too.Her father said it was to much money but then a few days later she got a dummy from her father.She called him Mr.Wood,she loved him and practiced and practiced,until one day the dummy slapped her and started saying bad things...

What I like about the book is the cover looks creepy,VERY creepy,and this book is like Chucky and another movie with a dummy but I don't know the name of it.This book is also like the series of Valley Kids with two twins except this book is horror.

How I Got My Shrunken Head by R.L Stine

Mark has always loved jungles all his life.He loves the game Jungle King that is a computer game and he loves it so much he plays it every single day.He came up with this jungle word Kah-lee-ah,he says it every time he does something good in Jungle King like not falling into quick sand or not being eaten by a crocodile or trampled by some rhinos.In the came you collect these little shrunken heads and each one you get is a point.His little sister Jessica plays but she always goes into the quick sand because she likes the noise.But then one day someone came and her name was Carolyn Hawlings and she was holding a shrunken head, a real one.Then she said it was from his Aunt Benna and she sent it for him.She stayed over that night and then the next morning she told him the new she said he and her was going to the jungle.And that's when it all started...

What I don't like about the book is the word Kah-lee-ah it's the silliest word I have ever heard in my entire life.I is like someone just made the word up and put it in a story.I mean it just bothers me and makes me want to scream!What I do like about the book is the adventure in a jungle.I loooove adventure in books.This would be a lot like a different book where someone gets lost in a jungle and they have superpowers if you have ever read one with that but if you haven't that's what this is about.This book is just a creepy jungle story that is really weird.So if you like weird creepy jungle story's this is the perfect one.

You Can't Scare Me! by R.L Stine

Eddie is afraid of things and Courtney trys to scare him and make him look like a total wimp in front of everyone he knows.But Eddie wants to pay her back he and his friends try everything but Courtney just makes them get in trouble.Then Eddie has a perfect plan because now he knows that Courtney believes in a rumor that has been going on for years about the mud monsters that live in Muddy Creek but when they go there it's not good that Eddie doesn't believe in them because it could be a fact...

What I like about the story is that it is like it is telling you that monsters could of lived many many many years ago and monsters could be living now.This story is like How to kill a Monster and Stay Out Of The Basement.You will like this if you like monster stories and monster legends.

Welcome to Dead House, by R.L. Stine

Amanda and Josh don't like there new house it looked like a mansion compared to their old house but still they didn't like it at all.When they looked at it everything was dead even the leaves even though it was in the middle of July,the flower bed was dead and the shutters were black and the house was gray,but it was very big and looked creepy.Josh and Amanda still didn't like it that much. Especially Josh he didn't want to see it on the first day,but Amanda did she was getting excited at first when she saw her room it was big and had it's own bathroom inside it and a little window bench so she could look at the street. But that's when it got creepy,she saw a boy with blond hair,then she looked again and it was gone.Then they started to make friends,weird friends,whenever Josh and Amanda asked where they live they always said "Your house". That was kind of creepy then that's when their dog ,Petey,ran into the graveyard and Josh and Amanda went after him and that's when the secret was revealed...

What I like about this book is the confusion,excitement,and the fear all at once because with the confusion I had to go back and reread some of the book to get what was happening.

The Barking Ghost, by R.L. Stine

Cooper is scaredest scaredy-cat ever he is afraid of his own shadow -- well that's what every one else says about him and that's when the Holmes's moved into some spooky woods and a spooky house and he starts seeing things like two evil looking dogs and hears dogs howling at night but no one believes a very alert person and that's when he actually meets the dogs then he turns into the dogs!Do you know what he will do?You will have to read to find out.

What I like about the book is the cover,I just LOVE the cover of the book because I LOVE dogs and it doesn't matter how they look I always love them even if they look scary and have red eyes and have huge fangs that they are showing I just want to hug them but I know that I can't.This book isn't that scary but it is kind of funny at the end.So if you want scary and funny there you go,but this is like the only one out of sixteen that I've read and I've got more to read so hold your horses about funny and scary.

Mandy, by Julie Andrews Edwards

Mandy is a Orphan and is a very sweet girl and has never said a single lie in her life and she never steels thing never takes things never acts like a brat never does any of those things but when she is so curious that she went over the brick wall and found a little abandoned cottage ,she decided to keep it for her self and stole a few things and went in the cottage and lived there for a while after school.The only one she tells is her best friend, but then her best friend worries about her and has to tell the Leader of the orphanage and then what will Mandy do??

What I like about this story is Mandy is a lot like me (not in the stealing part) because I have wanted to have a little home for my self and that's because I like to "set things up" and make a room or a part of a house look nice. It is like Bridge to Terebithia ,the movie that just came out recently, because the boy and the girl find a abandoned tree house and then the boy and the girl don't tell anyone. It is very cool because they both tell a secret and you want to keep on reading because you want to find out if someone else is going to find the place too,or if someone else has discovered it and says 'This is mine go away" or something like that.

The Indian in the Cupboard, by Lynne Reid Banks

This story is about how Omri gets a medicine cupboard from one of his brothers, and his mother helped him find a key to match it. Then he got a little plastic Indian for his birthday, also. He went up to his room and opened the cupboard and put the Indian in the cupboard.The next morning when Omri woke up he heard this weird sound coming from the cupboard. He looked inside and the Indian was moving and was a living thing! He opened the cupboard and the little Indian actually talked. His name was Little Bear. What will Omri do with him??

What I like about the story is the story is very exciting when it gets to a part that is kind of scary not like scary when someone disappears. Like for example, one of Omri's brothers' rat went into the vents underneath his floor and Little Bear had to go in there and get the key because it got lost in there and Little Bear almost died. I read the Indian in the Cupboard when I was in fourth grade and I loved it and I wanted to read it again so that's why I just bought it instead of going to the library and using my card so I found it in a thrift store and bought it. I really thought it was a good book so I thought why don't I do a review on it? And I am sure kids at school will read it. If you don't like books and you aren't much of a reader, this book really got my imagination into it and couldn't put it down. So this book might change your mind about books -- I'm not saying like you HAVE to change your mind but it is a really great book and the reason why you should also read it is because it is SO great!!

The Road To Inconceivable (Abadazad, volume 1), by JM DeMatteis and Mike Ploog

A brother and sister live together (and of course have a mother) and go to a street fair and Matt gets Kidnapped!!!Kate and Matt have been reading a story for years, Abadazad, and Kate actually has to GO to Abadazad to save her little brother!!! Abadazad is a place where it has half-rabbit half-turtles and it has sour trees and it has trees that grow food - and not just apples and pears it grows hamburgers,hot dogs,and pizza. Then dessert trees grow cupcakes,cookies,cakes,and pies. Abadazad has grouchy rocks that glare at you whenever you walk by them. It just seems really cool!

I like this because it's like a fantasy book like Narnia or Harry Potter. This book is like Harry Potter and Narnia because the girl goes into a different land like Narnia and it has magic like Harry Potter. This book is also like Holes because Holes is two stories in one because it talks about Stanly the main character going into the Holes camp and then it talks about Sam and the school teacher. In this story it tells about what's happening with Kate and Matt then sometimes it just tells the story about Abadazad. I think it's neat it is also text on a page when she is narrorating and writing in her journal, and when it's telling about Matt and Kate it's in comic form.

I'm disappointed because more people need to notice it like when it was in the library I didn't even notice it, my step-mom did.I think that maybe the reason why is that maybe it should be advertised because it's not like Harry Potter book that just came out because everybody wants it, but since Abadazad is such a odd name for a book more people will want to read that too if it was advertised.

A Practical Guide To Dragons, by Lisa Trumbauer

This Practical Guide to Dragons is a good book if you want to learn more about dragons because you can draw dragons learn about dragons and all sorts of stuff. It has all of their height, weight, wingspan, weapon, favorite foods, habitat, enemy, favorite treasure, and the picture of the dragon.If you want a dragon you should have the gold dragon because they eat gems and pearls not humans!!!

I like that they wrote it like a Nonfiction book because if it was a story they would have had one or more characters and they would have started and went on with the story, instead of writing what each Dragon's habitat is and their enemy and what their favorite food is.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible,No Good, Very Bad Day, by Judith Viorst

Alexander is having the worst day of his life, from waking up with gum in his hair to eating Lima beans for supper and kissing on T.V. Will he through the day without getting in trouble?

What I like about the book is that I have bad days just like him (just not as bad as he did).What I don't like about the book is that when he tells hes family that he is having a horrible day they just ignore him and would you like it if that happend to you?

The Curse Of Camp Cold Lake (Goosebumps series) by R.L Stine

Sarah is going to Camp Cold Lake but she hates to swim... well she likes to swim just not everyday and she likes to swim in clean pools not yucky dirty lakes,but she has to go there anyway. When she gets there she isn't doing very well already she walks into there and there are three girls they don't get along with they are making fun of her the whole time. Sarah thinks of something she thinks that she should pretend to drowned and when she does it she actually does do it she drowned.When she does drowned at first she saw two yellow lights and it was cold really cold. After that she saw her self on shore and the trees were bare and it was even colder. She ran to her cabin but it was locked. She heard singing very soft singing when she saw who was singing she asked who she was the person said that her name was Della and she kept on asking to be her buddy because they always need buddys when you swim in the lake. She ran she kept running then she found her self breathing and was on the shore again and saw everyone crowding her after some time she keeps on seeing Della then she would dissapear but then after that Sarah is through she runs to her cabbin gets a T-shirt on and runs to the forest and runs.

Boss of Lunch (Junie B.Jones series) by Barbara Park

Junie B. is about a little girl that is in first grade and acts like a kindergartner A LOT.In the story she gets a new lunch box and how exiting is that for Junie B!She just can't wait to open it at lunch.So while she is at school she gets in trouble by her teacher Mr.Scary for the second time.Finally it's lunch time so she eats her lunch and everyone else is having a hoagie for lunch from their BOUGHT lunch instead of their BROUGHT lunch.And then she is done before everyone and her best friend Herb has a sugar cookie on his tray and Junie B. just HAS to have it and she asked him and he said yes and breaks it in half so she eats the half cookie and it reminds her of a special person that was the snack lady from kindergarden last year and her name is Mrs.Gutzman and she asks if everyone remembers her and almost everyone remembers her and all her friends say that she works right in the cafiteria so Junie B. jumps up and goes right in the cafiteria and yells MRS. GUTZMAN!MRS.GLADYS GUTZMAN!WHERE ARE YOU!IT'S ME!And guess who comes out?Ofcourse Mrs.Gutzman.In the end of the book we learn that everyone makes mistakes and you don't always get yelled at in the mistakes you make and you sometimes get another chance.

What I like about the book is that Junie B. is funny like when a little girl says something funny but they don't know it's funny and don't understand why everyone is laughing at her like Junie B. says that she is good with sponges because she was once practicing for the carnival and threw sponges in her toilet.
