The Big Wave

The Big Wave is a sad story about a boy who loses his family because of a tsunami that wipes his family into the sea. The boy stays at his friends house and for the first few days all he does is sleep, trying to forget his family. But through the years his heart gradually opens to people and he lets people love him and care for him and after a wile loves people again himself. It is a good book even though its sad. I enjoyed this book!

The Wolves of Willoughby Chase

The Wolves of Willoughby Chase is a story about two little girls, Bonnie and Sylvia. Sylvia is Bonnie's cousin who comes to live with her. But the day after Sylvia arrives, Bonnie's parents leave on a ill-fated ship for vacation. The girls governess, Miss Slighcarp, disturbs the life of the two girls in ways I can't tell you because you need to read it your self. The girls have many adventures and make their way through many tight places with the help of a boy named Simon. This is a good book!


Rascal is a baby raccoon found in a hollow tree stump by an 11-year old boy(who's name is Sterling), his dog Wowser, and friend Oscar. The coon isn't weened yet, so Oscars mother teaches Sterling how to feed him. Sterling and his new pet bond together almost as soon as they meet, and the two are hardly ever seen apart from each other. They have many funny adventures together and even take a 2 week trip to Lake Superior! Every thing is happy and fun-filled until one fateful day...............
I really enjoyed this book. My favorite part was when Sterling enters a pie eating competition at the fair and Rascal, blueberry pie being his favorite and not knowing he wasn't permitted to the competition, hops on to the table and helps Sterling finish the pie first place! I won't tell you how that section ends. You'll have to read it yourself! I Loved this book!
