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!
