Review of “Moonlight on the Magic Flute”, written by Mary Pope Osborne

Reviewed by: Shadida
Review: This book was about two kids named Jack and Annie, who find a magic tree house in the woods. They soon find out that it belong to a secret librarian named Morgan Le Fay. The tree house could bring them to different times in history. On this adventure they have to help a great artist go on the path to sharing his talents with the whole world. They bring a magic flute that they can use in their darkest hour, but the flute could only be used once. Annie is my favourite character in this book. When I was reading this book I felt like I was watching a 3D movie. I think this series is my favourite series of books to read. I hope you enjoy them too.

Review of “Smelly Socks”, written by Robert Munsch

Reviewed by: Jasmine
Review: This story is about a girl named Tina, she loves her brand new socks and she always is wearing them everywhere she goes. But then Tina’s friends realize her socks smell horrible and when they tell her Tina still refuses to take them off. So her friends decide to take matters into their own hands. This book was really funny because in the end of the story Tina’s friends wash Tina’s socks themselves. I loved the part when everyone’s telling Tina to take her socks off but she’s obsessed with them.

Review of “A Midnight Summer Scream”, written by R.l Stine

Reviewed by: Jasmine
Review: This book is about two friends Claire and Delia who are watching a movie that was shot in an old mansion which people said it was haunted, and the film was never finished because in the movie the real stars got killed by objects in the house. So since Claire’s dad is film director he decided to remake the movie since it was never finished. When they arrive at the mansion they meet one of caretakers there who tells them to leave. So then Claire wonders if those things that happened to the stars was just a coincidence, or was the house really haunted? This book made me scared because I never knew a house could be able to kill people. My favorite character would have to be Claire because shes really curious.

Review of “Sylvester and the Magic Pebble”, written by William Steig

Reviewed by: Charlotte
Review: The book was about a donkey who finds a magic pebble. Then, he sees a lion and doesn’t know what to do so he wishes he was a rock. In the end, his parents come and put the pebble on the rock. Sylvester wishes he was himself and then he was. My favourite part is when he turns him back into a donkey.

Review of “The Vanishing Passenger”, written by Gertrude Chandler Warner

Reviewed by: Ryan
Review: The book was about a man named Gilbert Finch. He jumped off of a train to catch a dog in Allerton and no one could find him. My favourite characters were Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny. They are the Boxcar children.
The book was awesome and I think other people should read it because it was exciting to see how the Boxcar Children solved the mystery of where Mr . Finch went to.
