The book that I can't wait to read is Origami Yoda because it sounds like it is a comedy. I love a good laugh once and a while.

By Ernest Ho and Ben Vu      November 22, 2010 -- 11:19 AM
We recommend The Clockwork Three for 5th graders to adults because it has a twist of mystery and a bit of sadness.


By Casey C. Danielle Y.      November 22, 2010 -- 11:18 AM
As yoda is telling Dwight what to do, I wonder if origami yoda is telling the truth. This book seems like an adventurous book. It tells Dwight's life in school and his experiments with origami yoda.

I really want to read "School of Fear".I heard the kids names are Madeline,Theo,Garrison,and LuLu. They have fears of bugs,small spaces,death,and water which sounded weird to me. This book got a four star rating so it's probably good. Anyway,this book sounds just so good to me I really want to read it.I bet a lot of people will like this book.

By Megan Yip P10      November 11, 2010 -- 11:12 AM
I can’t wait to read the book Framed. Customers rated it 5 stars so Framed looks like a good book to other people and maybe you too! On the back of the book it says a boy named Griffin Bing is being Framed. Just by looking at the cover and the back it looks very interesting.These are the reasons why Framed looks like a very good book.

By Helen Pearce 301      November 10, 2010 -- 05:24 PM
I can't wait to read The Princess Plot! When this "movie" turns into real life, this girls life is in danger. The customer ratings were mostly five stars, and possitive comments too. I can't wait to read what happens next!

By Gabby G.      November 10, 2010 -- 03:34 PM
I reccomend "School of Fear" because it is about four twelve and thirteen year olds that are sent to a school called "School of Fear". They are sent there to overcome their fears.Madeleine  is deathly afraid of bugs,especially spiders.Theodore is petrifed of dying.Lulu is scared of confined spaces.Last, Garrison is terrifed of deep water. They’ll realize that this just may be the scariest summer of their lives.They don’t have any exams or homework.If they don’t conquer their fears by the end of their course they will find out how frightening failing can really be.

By Ella R.      November 10, 2010 -- 03:16 PM

Here are a few reasons why I want to read the "School of Fear". Alot of people say that this book is funny and kid appropriate. When I saw this book I wanted to steal it and gobble it up. By looking at the cover I think my favorite character would be the girl in the orange shirt and a jean skirt. That’s why I want to read the "School of Fear".

By Michael Chun      November 9, 2010 -- 09:26 PM
I can't wait to read "The Strange Case of Origami Yoda"! Origami Yoda is a finger puppet owned by a character named Dwight. It is an exciting book. The characters in this book ask Origami Yoda questions and he answers them. The question that they're asking is whether or not Origami Yoda is real and does he have any real powers. He gives wise answers to them. It's a funny book and a really fun book to read. I recommend this book for everyone! You'll really like it!

By McKenzie Taffe 302      November 9, 2010 -- 07:03 PM

Ook and Gluk

I can't wait to read this book because it has crazy cavemen fighting crime and going on adventures. Some of the customer reviews say that it is an awesome book that is so funny. The cavemen have some troubling times and also mess-up. They fight machines and menises. They even live on an island.

I can’t wait to read School Of Fear.When the author explained what School Of Fear was about in the video I was interested in it the second she talked about it.She was so descriptive and had such good acting. It sounds like a good suspenseful book.I like suspense and mystery because you don’t know what's coming next.In some stories you can just guess what's coming next and be right.I think this one is different.I really want to read some of her other mystery books.That is why I want to read this awesome book.

By Lauren Tan      November 8, 2010 -- 02:43 PM
I'm so excited to read "School of Fear" because all of the comments on Barns & Noble gave a great review. I tried looking on Amazon but I couldn't find the book. All the reviews made me more and more anxious to read that book. I loved the pictures on the cover because the characters are so simple yet it gives you an idea that they are afraid of something. So I stared at the cover but still couldn't figure out who's phobias who.I peeked and noticed that every chapter has a phobia on it.I can't wait to read this book!

By Alexander C. & Mack L.      November 8, 2010 -- 01:28 PM
I think the book Nerds would be a wonderful addition to our library. It is about six fifth graders who have different special abilities. This book is an action packed novel. I think all kids should read this adventurous book.

I can't wait to read Dogs 101 because I love dogs and I want to learn more about them. Dogs 101 covers dog breeds from A-Z. It describes each dog's appearance, its nickname, what famous people have owned the breed, and what group it belongs to such as working, nonworking, toy, terrier, and hound. Each page also has many cute pictures of the dog breed. If you want to know more about dog breeds this is the book for you.

What we've found out about the book Origami Yoda is that reporters say it's a four star book and a mystery. We also found out that people say it's four stars too. This tells us we should try this book and see how we like it. We also think that the cover looks funny.

By Gabby K. and Mulan M      November 8, 2010 -- 01:25 PM

I would recommend "The Lost Hero" by Rick Riordan because I have read his excellent first series. This time, three new demigods must slay monsters, face their worst fears, and even save the human race. I think Riordan's new series will be even better than the last.

I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic 1912

I want to read I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic 1912, by Lauren Tarshis. The reason I want to read this book is because in fourth grade we read a short story about the Titanic. We got to be one of the actual people that went on the Titanic and then had to do a little research on that person. Ever since then,I've had an interest in the Titanic. I went to the website www.Amazon.com/ISurvivedtheTitanic to find out more information on the book.
