This book starts with a rabbit named Shylo. He has very annoying brothers and sisters who always tease him. Shylo wants to show his brothers and sisters that he is not a weakling. One day Shylo was walking in the forest and he tumbled down a hill. Shylo heard voices and he quickly jumped into a hole where he then saw rats! He heard the rats talking about how they had found a way to the queen’s bedroom! He quickly went to Horatio. Horatio told him to go to London and go to the royal family to warn them. So Shylo went to London and went to the royal family. The royal family sent 2 guards with him to defeat the ratzis. Do you think they will make it or do you think they will fail?

I would give this book 5 stars because it was very interesting, adventurous, and fun. My favorite part was when the rabbits and rats were fighting.

Will Kestra get the Olden Blade for the Coracks? Or will she refuse to give it to them? Find out by reading The Traitor’s Game!!

I liked this book because it was full of adventure and mystery. But at some parts I didn’t really want to keep reading because it was boring. If you don’t really like deaths I suggest you don’t read this book because there were a lot of deaths in it. But at some parts it was really interesting and I wanted to keep reading. I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Refugee by Alan Gratz (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Friday, Jan 26, 2018 at 4:47pm

Refugee follows three kids: Josef, Isabel, and Mahmoud. All three kids go on harrowing journeys in search of refuge. All will face unimaginable dangers -- from drownings to bombings to betrayals. But there is always the hope of tomorrow. And although Josef, Isabel, and Mahmoud are separated by continents and decades, shocking connections will tie their stories together in the end.

Refugee is a great book that follows three different perspectives of refugee's through the ages. Josef, a Jewish boy from WW2, Isabel a Cuban girl, and Mahmoud a Syrian boy. The character's are very interactive and selfless throughout the book. The characters are so great and all the character's are all so different. Josef wants to prove himself a man, Isabel wants to safely reach Miami, and Mahmoud just wants everything to be okay, which is why I think it's fitting that the book should end with the word 'home'.
