Who Wrote This? Quotation

"You have been my friend, that in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my web for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway? We're born, we live a while, we die.... By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle, Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that!" [Tell Me!]

Here's What You've Been Reading...

The One and Only Ivan

The One and Only Ivan

I loved this book. It was a little sad because it is based on a real story about a gorilla who lived for 27 in a shopping mall that had a circus in it. But it has a happy ending so it is worth it! The story is told by Ivan, the gorilla, and it's about his experience living in human habitat. Ivan is also an artist and he talks a lot about art and how drawing and painting makes him happy. His best friend is a dog named Bob and Stella, who is a wise elephant. There are so many great moments in this book. You will LOVE Ivan and Ruby the baby elephant who comes to live with them and changes everything!

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I like that Harry Potter is brave and risks his life. His friends help Harry find out pieces of the mysteries. It's fun that you can guess who is behind the mysteries and see if you were right.

I liked the characters and the plot. A lot of humorous parts with small action sequences in between.

The Case of the Bug on the Run

I really liked Lilly. It was funny with Mr. Amaro and the "Ewwwwww" part of the story. I really liked Hooligan.
