THE WITCHES by Rohald Dahl

Roald Dahl, as we all know, is a wonderful book writer. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was, in fact, written by him.

This suspenseful (in a kid way) book is funny, gross and adventurous. I loved it and thought it was so cool, with funny maps and diagrams added in.

This book is about a kind of guide to witches. It features a little boy hiding from witches and having help from his grandmother, a witch expert. This is so funny and, in fact, one part stuck in my mind: when he showed a diagram of how the witch got meaner and the witch got uglier. This part is stuck in my mind after three years!

This is such a fun, easy, simple book. I love it and think you should read it!

WONDER by R.J. Palacio

I love this book. It is heartwarming and teaches you that it is great to choose kindness (kind of the book's jingle).

This book is about a 5th grade boy with a damaged face who starts school after being home schooled for many years. It is hilarious and a great read. In fact, the town of Fairfield, CT has a "One Book, One Town" program, where they pick a great book for the year--and this is their choice!

You will fall in love in the first pages. This book makes you laugh and cry. This book rocks, and you should read it!

THE HOBBIT By J.R.R. Tolkien

The Hobbit is a wonderful adventure. It is a prelude to The Lord of The Rings books. It is about a hobbit named Bilbo Baggins who is not much of an adventurer, but faces many adventures with dwarfs and wizards who take the adventure with him.

This old classic will transport you into another world--just as if you were in the book, with Bilbo Baggins. If you ever wondered what Frodo's uncle's adventures were like, you should read this--especially since it's coming out as a movie later this year!

MOON OVER MANIFEST By Clare Vanderpool

This was a great book. It felt like you were going back in time, while kinda having a cool adventure with this little girl. She goes into a town that her father grew up in, to learn more about him. And learns more than she expected to.

This twisting tale includes friendship, adventure and sadness. I'm not the only one who thinks this is a great book, as it was a Nutmeg Award winner!

My next book to review is the whole series of A Series of Unfortunate Events. This is an awesome series about orphans who experience lots of unfortunate events, mostly because of a guy named Count Olaf. The suspense and planning in this 13-book series is awesome, and will keep you reading. In fact, the first three books are out in a movie. The narrator is awesome and so is the series.

This book might just be letters and newspapers, but it is one of the most crazy and scary stories combined. The characters are the ghost Olive, C. Spence, Seymour Hope and Iggy. Can a ghost and a scary writer take care of a little orphan and still write? The expression and description was awesome. The pictures are also pretty awesome. And don't forget--it was a 2011 Nutmeg Award nominee!

WWE LEGENDS By Brian Solomon

This book is written by my dad, and it's about legends of WWE. Have you ever heard of The Valiant Brothers or Ivan Koloff? This book has detail in the writing, and really goes in-depth explaining and telling you everything you need to know about each legend.

Please check out my little brother's movie blog!
