SAMMY, DOG DETECTIVE by Colleen Stanley Bare

The book was about a dog trying to be a detective. He did a lot of neat thing like climbed ladders, climbed barrels, and jumped into windows.

My favorite part was when he tried to steal kisses from the kids.

I think children who are 8 or 9 years old will enjoy this book.

I think both girls and boys should read this book.

THIMBLE SUMMER by Elizabeth Enright

Thimble Summer is about a girl named Garnet and all her adventures during the summer. And she has a lot of adventures! Getting trapped in a library, finding a mysterious stranger, running away from home, and a lot more! My favorite part was when Garnet and her friend, Citronella, got trapped in the library and no one knew where they were. Plus Citronella had just read a very good murder mystery, so she was going slightly crazy. I think boys and girls ages 8-12 would enjoy this book .Thimble Summer

WALK TWO MOONS by Sharon Creech

This book is about a girl named Salamanica. When Sal’s mom goes missing she takes it into her own hands to find her. With the help of her friend Pheobe they find out something that know one would expect.

My favorite part is when Pheobe and Sal figure out who Pheobe’s potential lunatic is. I liked this part because Pheobe has a very large imagination. Also it was a huge relief to find out who he was.

I think that girls ages 11-15 will like this book.

Graveyard Book


This book is about Carol’s grandmother’s childhood in pioneer times. Caddie goes on many adventures with her brothers and plays many jokes and fools. She was not the average girl in those times, and she worked as if she was a young boy.

The best part was when Caddie plays many pranks on her cousin that came all the way from Boston to Western Winsconsin to vist them at their farm. I recomend this book to girls 9-12.
