Title: A Light in the Attic
Author: Shel Silverstein
Rating: 5 stars
This book is a book of poems. I have always liked three that I am going to tell you about. The name of my first poem is “The Sitter”. I like how it says she thinks a babysitter is supposed to sit upon a baby. I think it is sad and a little funny. The second poem is “Mr.Smeds and Mr.Spats”, the Smeds guy has 21 heads and the Spats guy has 21 hats. That is pretty funny. The last poem I like is the “Rockabye”. The most funny thing is the part when he says, “Baby, I think someone’s got it in with you.” That is the reason I like this book of poems.

Title: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever
Author: Jeff Kinney
Rating: 4 stars
This book is about a kid around Christmas and he might get on the nice list or the naughty list. When he hears that he might be on the naughty list he doubts them and says that this kid should be on the naughty list that got a dirt bike for Christmas. Then he has bad luck because Mom brings out a doll that was from her childhood. They call it Santa’s little helper. I can’t tell you the rest so read on your own.
   I recommend you read this.

Title: Liar, Liar
Author: Gary Paulsen
Rating: 5 stars
The book Liar, Liar is about a boy named Kevin. He lies to everyone about everything. Some of the things he lies about are school or how he is sick with a disease that is not real. Kevin says that if you do not lie, you are so uncool. He lies about how much 7th grade homework he has, until the cows come home. He is trying to show a girl in his class that he is the best boyfriend by being a hot acting boy. He lies to his teachers that he has to do something like help the wrestling team get in shape, so he can talk to the girl Tina, and tell her he loves her. Will he ever stop lying? Why does Kevin always choose to lie? You will have to read this fabulous funny book to find out?
   I really enjoyed reading this book. I love the part where he is helping his aunty and she gets all mad at him for doing that. Kevin helped himself to something that wasn’t his and he paid the price for it. Another time in the story he is telling a teammate that he has a hardy, horrid virus. He rattled off all the side effects he learned from watching T.V. ads. I almost laughed my brains out reading this book.
   I would recommend this best book to 3-8 grade kids. Gary Paulson is one of my favorite authors. There are not that many words that are too hard for younger ages to read. There are no parts that are too gruesome for little kids, but there is one word that is a little bad for young kids to read. However, if you are reading this book to them, you could just skip the sentence. This book is so much fun to read, you can read this book in three days straight!

This book is funny, sad, touching, and embarrassing, like on page 81, I would tell you, but I’ll ruin it for you. In someways I can’t tell you about the poem book because every page is something new. When you hear the title of the book, you think, ” Why do you read this? It looks and sounds boring.” When you hunker down and read it, and at first it might not make sense, but the more you read, and read again, you’ll love it.
   I love this book because it makes me laugh and gets me more engrossed in poems. Poems give almost the same amount of detail and info as a book.
The second reason why I love this book is because it’s short, but when you look at it, it looks huge and long, but the first thirteen or twenty minutes you are half  way through it. Well it depends on your age, because if you’re a lot younger, it might take a while, but that’s okey-dokey.
   I recommend this book, well, a poem book, to anyone that likes to laugh and giggle and cry just a little.
   I hope whoever gets this poem book after me loves it as much as I do.
