Journey of the Pale Bear by Susan Fletcher (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Saturday, Jun 15, 2019 at 6:08pm

The story starts out When Arthur is shoved into a bear’s cage, but strangely the bear doesn’t hurt him! So Arthur accepts the job to take care of her on a ship bound for London. While on their journey, pirates attack and the ship starts to sink! Will Arthur get the Polar Bear out of her cage or save himself? Read this book to find out!

Journey of the Pale Bear was an interesting and exciting story about the bond between a boy and a bear.

If I were to rate this book out of 5, it would be a 4. I would recommend this book for kids 10 or 11 years old because of the difficult words. I really liked this book. The chapters were nice and short and sometimes left you on a cliffhanger.

Tito the Bonecrusher by Melissa Thomson (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Thursday, Jun 13, 2019 at 9:21pm

This book is about a boy named Oliver. His life isn’t going very well at the moment. For starters, his dad is going to jail, and his sister is always cranky. So, Oliver and his friends Brain and Popcorn go to a fundraiser by breaking the law. The get dragged out by guards. They wanted to get to Tito, a movie superhero, because they think he can help them get Oliver’s dad out of the Florida Jail. Tito goes to Popcorn's house and tells them that his next movie will be filmed in Florida. Back at home they make another plan to get Oliver’s dad out of jail that has to do with someone learning to drive, lots of money, and lots of law breaking.

I really didn’t like Tito the Bonecrusher so I will give it a three out of five stars.

Escape This Book! Titanic by Bill Doyle (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Wednesday, Jun 12, 2019 at 2:49pm

You’re trying to Escape the Titanic while it’s sinking because it hit an Iceberg!! You have three choices: you can be a second class passenger, a crew member, or a stowaway. Second  class passenger is probably the easiest way to escape, but what am I saying?? All of them are hard to escape, especially the Stowaway.  All of them end the same but who knows if you’ll escape!! The crew members help others bring their luggage. The second class passengers don’t really do anything and the Stowaway could go to jail for boarding on Titanic without a ticket and is especially hard to get on a lifeboat because they might get caught.

There are a lot of activities like doodling, folding and tearing in Escape This Book! Titanic. My favorite choice was probably the crew member because there were a lot of adventures but I’m only going to tell you one. You will have to rescue a dog while it’s still flooding. How scary is that?? Do you think you can do that?? My favorite part was when I did a morse code because it was fun and interesting to see what it said.

I would give this book a 5 out of 5 because it is one of my favorite kinds of books adventurous.

Orange for the Sunsets by Tina Athaide (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Sunday, Jun 09, 2019 at 2:37pm

Orange for the sunsets is about two kids named Asha and Yesofu who are best friends. Asha is an Indian girl and Yesofu is an African boy. Even though they are so different they are best friends. One day the president decides that Indians should leave the country of Uganda and go home. Asha is determined to stay in Uganda forever. Every thing is changing for the two best friends.

I thought that Orange for the sunsets was a really good read. I like that Asha and Yesofu try to be friends even though it can be hard sometimes. I think lots of kids my age will love this book. This book is kind of sad at the end. I rate this story 97 out of 100 because it is so good!
