Review by Westley.
This story is about a little boy and his dad a long time ago. The little boy buys a toy for his baby brother. The dad goes to one of the first bankers and the little boy ask the banker to hold his toy for his baby brother so he doesn’t lose it at the Palio di Siena horse race. Then he loses the receipt to get the toy back!
I liked when he lost the receipt and the banker gave back the toy even though he didn’t have the receipt since it was a present for his baby brother. I like the pictures and the artwork because they were pretty. They had lots of detail.
I think people who like history would like this book. This is a story about a time that was real, but the people aren’t real.
Review by Cameron
This book is suited for middle school students. The story is about a kid named Capricorn Anderson. He has never watched television. He has never tasted pizza. His only experience is being raised on a farm with his hippi grandmother who homeschools him. His grandmother ends up in the hospital so Capricorn has to go to a regular school and learns all about the things he’s been missing.
I would recommend this book to readers who like a funny story.
Note: Cameron will be joining the blog fairly often so I gave him his on tag. Keep an eye out for Reviews by Cameron!
Book by Louis Sachar
This book is about a boy who gets sent to a place for getting blamed for stealing some famous shoes. The place is called Green Lake. The boys have to dig holes which is suppose to build character. Each hole must be five feet deep and five feet wide. If they find anything interesting, they show it to the warden. If she likes it, she gives them the day off.
I would recommend the book to kids who like an adventurous book.
This book is about the Statue of liberty and she was feeling blue. Her friend, Moe, the pigeon told her to go out to see America. She sees all kinds of cool stuff like the Rocky mountains and the Grand Canyon. It is almost the 4th of July. It looks like NY will have to cancel the 4th because Lady Liberty. You will have to read the rest to find out what happens.
People who like to visit different places will like this book.
I would give this book 5 stars because it is good.
Bridget Note: This is a book review by another awesome kid (my cousin). I enjoy having other kids provide reviews on my site so if you know a kid who wants to review a book or more, send them my way!

Book review by Romy
The books are about a cat named Chi who gets separated from her mom and another family adopts her. She nearly gets separated from them twice but she stays with them and ends up moving to France. Along the way, Chi meets two other cats. Their names are Coackchi and Blackie. Chi is happy, feisty, and funny. I think the books are funny, happy, and sad. They are graphic novels and are originally from Japan. I really like the pictures. They are cute and colorful. I first found out about these books from my public library.
It is a very good series. I like it so much because I love cats. I give Chi a 10 out of 10 plus 10 bonus points!
Bridget note: Romy also shared her own Chi novel mock up and the membership cards for her club. I love graphic novels so will be reading this series!

Then she started to hit and kick people and once Helen even pushed her baby sister, Mildred, out of her cradle. Then Annie came to live with the Keller family to help Hellen Keller. She helped Helen learn to talk and do sign language.
What did I like? I really liked this story because it’s a real story, and it’s a good story because it’s about a girl who is a super sweet girl, but is deaf, blind, and cannot talk.
Overall review: this is the best book ever no wonder I read this book so many times.
