Charlotte's Web

Charlotte's Web is a book about a pig and her friend Charlotte a spider. The pig is born and is a runt so he was taken to the front yard to be shot. But as the farmer was about to, his daughter Fern, stopped him and convinced him to let it live if she raised it herself. She named it Wilbur and raised it very well. As he got older he was about 10 months old when Fern's father told her the pig had to be sold, so the Wilbur was sold to a nearby farm and I won't spoil anything else.

 There are many characters in this book but the most important are :Wilbur, a very energetic pig. Charlotte a spider, who is very kind and can spin webs with words on them with the help of. Templeton, a rat that is very selfish and that finds words on different things to take back and show Charlotte so she can put them on her web, And of course Fern, the human that raised Wilbur.

My favorite charterers are Templeton, and Charlotte. Templenton, because he is the one that does something but only if he benefits from it or he is already doing it. Charlotte because she is constantly working with Templenton to save Wilbur's life she is kind and is very smart.

These are my favorite parts of the book are when:

1. Templeton walks in after a long night saying "What a night what a night," and is very fat I like this part because it is very funny and shows who Templenton is.

2. Wait wait wait i almost just told you the ending you will have to read that part for yourself
I like the ending because it is kind of bitter sweet with some common sense thrown in.  

my opinion
Over all I like this book and think you should at least give it a try hope you like it :).

The Great Brain 2

This book is about The Great Brain (A.K.A Tom) a kid who has a big brain and is trying to get a lot of money. He has a lot of tricks up his sleeve.The story is told from The Great Brain's brother,J.D.

 Tom lives in a family with his younger brother, J.D, his dad,  his mom, and his aunt.His tricks are genius - if you are caught in his tricks there is no escaping.

Tom's dad works for the Advocate, a newspaper.

My favorite characters are J.D and Tom (A.K.A The Great Brain). They are both as they should be and are like real people and work well together.

Tom's best tricks are amazing - here are my two favorites
1. Tom manages to convince the whole town there is a dinosaur in a cave near the town, and then seals the cave up, saving two people from getting fired.

2. Tom is forced to teach a girl and help her act like a girl.His parents must take away his bike to make sure he does this. He gets back his bike but must continue to teach. He tells his dad that he will be picked on bye the other boys he says he could lie about getting payed but lying is worse then getting picked on and gets payed 1.00 dollar (witch back then is like 40.00 dollars now) .

This book is really good, the characters are believable the story is good. I would recommend this book and especially to people who like The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer

The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy-Douglas Adams

This book is about the earth being destroyed and a group of humans, aliens, and robots flying around the galaxy discovering lost worlds, and secrets about the earth.

Arthur Dent awoke to find not only his house was being destroyed but his friend, Ford, was an alien and the earth was going to be destroyed by the Vogons. The Vogons are aliens- why would they Destroy the world? Why, a hyper space bypass of course. Arthur and Ford barley escaped.

Arthur and Ford escape by hitching a ride on the Heart Of Gold. The Heart Of Gold is a space ship that was stolen by Zaphod Bebblebrox. Zaphod BebbleBrox is the President Of The Galaxy. Arthur and Ford fly around with Zaphod BebbleBrox, Marvin the depressed robot, and the computer-  the annoying, too happy robot. They found a lost planet, a planet that makes planets.

I like that the book has some really funny ideas that make you laugh. I like the creativity he put in   the book. At the of the book the only problem I have is the personalities they are to strait and lean to one thing instead of spreading out the charterers a bit .
