My favorite book is called The Never Ending Story. The leader of the country is dying, and she has a doctor go for a kid named Atreyu, because apparently he can find her cure. My favorite part is when the Nothing is only a couple miles away from Atreyu. (The nothing is basically turning peices of the country into nothing, and now it's a wolf chasing Atreyu) It's my favorite book so far because it's interesting and exciting.

my favorite book is Rules. it was about this girl that had a little brather with autizum and she always went with him to his therapea classes. there is this other boy that cant speak and is in a wheel chair that goes too. the girl allways talks with him and draws pictures for in this book so he can comunicate. my fav part is when her little brother puts barbie and ken in their fish tank. and the tankover flows. there is also a part where he dances in her room with her friend and breaks a ruler. at the end of the book the girl goes to a dance with her friend and dances with the boy in the wheel chair. so thats my favorite book.

The series of unfortunate events:THe carnivorous carnival is a good book because its makes me feel like im in the acual book. I like the part were they are in disguise as freaks at the carnival.The whole point to this book is were count olaf tries to steal the boudelare's fortune that there parents left behind in the terrible fire were in that case they died. They are wondering if one of them survived the fire were they died, because they found the snicket file and it said exactly they may think one of theo arents are alive. This takes place at a carnival in the iddle of the hinterlands. They think one of the parents are in the mortmain mountains jsut a few miles away. Theres this lady that works at the carnival and she a fake fortune teller and the baudelares broke her glass ball so she helped them-i dont no wy she helped them-find a way into the mortmain mountains. This is wy i like this book because it always gives me a picture in my mind.

I dont know what my fvorite book is. I like harry potter half-blood prince. I dont know why it is my favorite book but it is good. What happens is harry and dumbledore have to go to this special cave and dumbledore drinks this potion that makes him weak and he wants to die. Then they go back to hogwarts and dumbledore dies and stuff.Also harry likes this girl named ginny and that is harry's best friends little sister so they get in a fight and they eat alot in this book. Ya so thats my favorite book i guess. But the whole harry potter series is good. I also like number 1,2,3,4,5,and 7.
Number 7 and 5 has alot of action. Number 4 is ok its not my favorite. All the other ones are good. I can't wait for the movies for 6 nd 7.

Hey Mr. Kluper my favorite book series is The Royal Diaries they are my favorite because they tell about what thier lifes had been like. Also i like them because, they acually tell you what thier thoughts were and how life was when they were alive like i'm reading the Cleopatra Daughter of the Nile and it tells me in the book that she had a pet leopard named Arrow, she thinks that her sister is trying to kill her , and her father is away because he is hiding because he made people mad at him and wants to kill him. For example one night when everyone was asleep someone snuck into her fathers room, put a deadly puff adder on the edge of his bed and left it there he didn't die from it but his butler did.Now it's still silthering around the castle. Talk to you later.

Hi Mr. Klumper, My favorite book is called Heat by Mike Lupica. It is my favorite book because it is about baseball and the main character likes the New York Yankees like me. I also enjoyed this book because the main character is a pither, and the main characters name is Michael. The book tells about that Michael and his 17 year old brother are living in an apartment and their dad died when the were comming from Cuba to live in the united states in Florida. Michael's baseball coach wants to talk to Michael's dad about giving rides to away games. Michael lies to his coach and says his dad is in Florida with Michael's uncle in the hospital in Florida visiting him. Michael's baseball team is very good and they keep winning games. All the other coaches for other teams want to see Michael's birth certificate because they dont think he is 12 so Michael cant play any more games until they get to see his birth cirtificate.3 days later they found his birth certificate and now he can play and the make it to the play offs. And that was the end. It was one of my favorite books I've read. I would recomend this book to anyone that like baseball.

My favorite book would have to be One of Those Hidious Books Where The Mother Dies. It is my favorite book because it is so hilarious! It has quite a bit of swearing and a little sexual humor. I is in our middle school library for like 6-8 points. What happens is a girls mother dies and so she has to move all the way to california. It turns out her dad is this famous guy named Whip Logan. Whip divorced her mom before she was born so whas just then meeting him. I turns out the reason that her father divorced her mother is that he is gay. At her school almost all of the kids parents are famous so she can relate to them. At their school there is your "average" coke dealer and buy (someone who is over the age of 21 that buys the high schoolers drinks and ciggerettes). my favorite part is when her friend was giving her the tour of the school.

meikayla 3wojciechowski said...

My favorite book would be The Series of Unfortunat Events. These are my favorit books becuse it kept me inter tianed and I loved the way in every book Count Olaf would come and try to take ver worked them back but it never worked. In the beging of book one, their house starts on fire. So these three kids are going to their Itkink fourth cousins house, but of course it was Count Olaf. He (this bugs me) but he hit Clause right over the face. Violet is the olest 16, clause 14-15, and sunny was the baby girl who turns 2 years old. This seris is 13 books long.

Dear Mr. Klumper,

My favorite book is called May Day at Two-Thousnd Five Hundred Feet. I like this book because it is about 2 guys that are flying in a Cessna 172 Skylane, a low flying jet knocks out the pilot and leaves the other one blind from a head injury.

Alex 3Wilde said...

My favorite book is without a dought Summer Ball by Mike Lupica.Mike Lupica is the best sports writer EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's about Danny Walker a short but determined athlete that goes to a basketball camp for the VERY best young athletes in America. This camp sounds really awesome, it's mostly like school basketball you go to practice and show the coach your skills and then they will come up with a 1st string,2nd string and so on.Danny ends up on the 2nd team. Eventually the first string point guard gets an injury and danny takes starting position. This is a great book and if you love sports like I do you will love this book.

My favorite series is the H ardy Boys by Franklin W. Dixon. I like this series because they are very detailed are sometimes violent nd have a lot of action. The tittle of the book tricks me, for example, Burned is illegal CD burning. The main characters are Joe, Frank, background main character are chet, Mr. Fenton aka joe and franks dad Aunt Trudy thir aunt and their mom they never mention her name. Joe and Frank work for ATAC American Teens Against Crime Association. There are one hundred eighty-nine issues that i know of. The first chapter they almost die. They explain everything at the end of the book. they have a pet parracete I don't remember its name. They end a mission the first chapter of a book and start on the second. They live in Bayport and travel a lot. I recomend these books to anyone who likes action books. That is what I have to say about the Hardy Boys series

Rachael4 Horner said...

Hello everyone my favorite book is probably going to have to be Bridge To Terabithia because it has some really good pictures in the book and also because they go to a scary clubhouse like probably not more than ten minutes away from where they live. But the sad thing about the story is that at the end of it somebody dies and I am not going to tell you that part because I do not want to break awat a surprise for you.

Hannah 4Poppens said...

Dear Mr.K
My favorite book so far would have to be Things Hoped For by Andrew Clements. This is my favorite book because the grandpa in the story gets into his freezer and stays there to die. At the begining of the book he leaves a message for his grandaughter Gwen(she lives with him so that she can go to music school in New York City where he lives)that says that he would be gone for a few weeks. When Gwen and her new friend Robert find him they call the police and her grandpa's lawyer comes and says that he reiceved a letter that was not to be opened untill he was died. He went back to his office to get it and when came back he opened it and it said "So now you know what I did to myself. It is a very juicy book that grabbs your attention.

Marina 6 said...

I don't really have a favorite book.
I've read so many that I could not chose just one.
Some of my favorite books are Anne of Green Gables I like this book because it takes place in older times and everyone in the book is so dramatic mostly Anne
Another good book I have read is the any of the books in the Laura Ingalls Wilder seires I like them because they tell what life in the older days was like.
One of my most favorite books is Tell Me Something Happy Befare I Go To Sleep, my dad used to read this book to me and my brother when we were little Now I hardly ever read it but i still have it
The last book I can think of is Mermaid Marina my cousin gave me this book when i was about 5 I know your probly thinking why does she keep these books or what a baby but not really the ones from when i was little i pretty much never read anymore.

thomas 6 siemonsma said...

My favorite book is BABE and ME i like it because it is about baseball and it is about the 1932 game1, game2, and game3 and then it moves on to the 1932 world series. Then my favorite part of the book is when babe and joe go see a child that is super sick so then babe signs a ball, a bat, and a glove and the boy promises that he will get better if babe hits a homerun then he hits a homerun and the kid gets better. That is my favorite book and that is my favorie part of the book bye-bye the end

Becca Kaatlain Goth p8 said...

i like "audrey,wait!"
i like it because of all the excitement she has while trying to stay out of the spotlight.

here is what the book says

"according to a poll on the front page of USA today, 60% of americans blame me for the breakup, so let me clear the air right now: they are right 63% of americans are no fool when it comes to my life, fact which is really creepy and not helping me sleep at night....."

the most popular song of the year is about audrey- and now shes famous! not the free stuff and backstage kind of famous the paparizzi-hiding-in-your-bushes-at-the-worst-moment-of-your-life-plastered-on-the-front-page of the e! magazine issue holiday edition!plus she wore tube socks on her arms as arm huggies when she got "hit in the head with a semi full of nasty old cows" as victoria says.

Andrew Breitzman Prd 8 said...

Hey Mr. Klumper! My favorite book is The Ersatz Elevator by Lemony Snicket. The reason is because I love books about mysteries. What happens in the book is that the three Baudelaire orphans parents die and in every book they find a new home. This might be their weirdest home yet. Jerome, the nice parent is married to Esme an evil parent and she is trying to help Count Olaf(enemy) try to get the Baudelaires amazing fortune,which was left behind by their parents.. The orphans must find out a way to be safe and a way to find out what lies ahead in their future.

Drew per.8 said...

My favorite book by far is football genius by tim green. this book is about a kid that can read the offense in the nfl he knows exactly what play they are running. the first scene is he sneaks through a hole to the rich peoples house and steals a football from seth halloways yard(seth halloway is a linebacker)he then rubs it in a bragging kid named jamies face. but eventually he turns into the falcons ballboy.

Madisen 8White said...

John Hedman per.8 said...

i think the best book i ever read was point blank becouse i was very good and i idi not know what was going to happen nexted like when alex (main person in the book) meets a girl. ( he is try to pretend she is his sister becouse that is his mission for a spy componey) i was woundering if he would like her or not, but when went up to her the first time she asked him he liked the pool he said yes and she said dang i hate to share my pool (her parents are rich so they have a pool and the parents also have to pretened he is there son). They alex and the girl and her boyfreind go hunting and they let him get a gun but no bullets becouse they don't trust him. Then they start to shoot at him for a game (alex thought that they were trying to kill him) and he ran and went to the lake and he hi under there with a water tube (you might see on tv) and they boyfreind comes and tries to find him, but alex gets up from behind and hits him and the boyfreind drops the gun and Alex gets the gun and the boy freind says please give it back my mom bought it for me and it cost a lot (his parents are rich too) but he says your to young to play with guns and he thoughs it in the lake.

if you thought sounded good check it out at the lirary it is. point blank by Anthony Horowitz

Chris Bly 9th said...

I realy like the Warriors seiries by Erin Hunter. It's about a bunch of cats who live in clans in the forest. I like this book because it has a great plot and each page makes me want to read the next. I haven't read a boring Warriors book yet! I also like cats, wich is another reason I like this book. My Favorite in the seiries so far is "Forest of Secrets" wich is the one I am reading right now. Every one who reads this post should go to the libary, Striaght Away, and pick up a Warriors book. If you do, I can promise you won't be disapointed!

I don't have a favorite book(to many to chose!) but i will tell you about one of my favorites. It's called Molly Moon's Incredible Book of Hypnotism. This book is written by Georgia Byng(great author.) It's about a ten-year-old girl named Molly Moon, who is an orphan at Hardwick House, an orphange run by the mean Ms.Adderstone. Nobody really likes Molly except for her best friend Rocky, and a couple young orphanage kids. But everything turns upside-down when Molly discovers a book on hypnotism and goes to New York. Molly has to watch her back because the evil criminal Professer Nockman is stalking Molly because she has something that is very important to him. This is a great book and I would recomend it to anybody who likes adventure, mystery, and a good book!

HI!! I love to read, and I can tune out my surroundings at A PARTY and read a chapter book in an hour if I wanted to. I have read so many good books in my life, there is too many to mention. My favorite book by far, would have to be HATCHET. By Gary Paulsen. It is about a thirteen year old who his parents just went through a divorce, and he goes to visit his father in a small single engine plane when the pilot has a massive heart attack, and the plane crashes in the Canadian wilderness. now Brian has to put his problems behind him in order to survive. It is a great book It is so great that you will have to read it to understand how great it is.
