    I read With Love by Jane Goodall for my non-fiction. This is about lots of different chimpanzees. It is ten different stories. I learned that chimps like to eat bushpigs. My favorite story was the first one. But also the one where one chimp was hunting and a bushpig tried to eat him so another chimp came to rescue him. This book has awesome illustration. If you love chimps you need to read With Love.

    I read Ape for my non-fiction book. It is about Orangutans, Chimps, Bonobo, and Gorilla. Orangutans swing from tree to tree with their babies. They use their strong, hairy arms and legs to climb with.
    Chimps live in gangs with their brothers, sisters, uncles, and cousins. They use blades of grass to get termites from their nests. They sometimes get into fights with other chimp gangs.
    Bonobos feast on figs while calling to their friends. They drop from trees and move quickly and quietly to find their friends.
    Gorillas chew on bamboo stems then sleep. They wake up, play with their babies, then sleep again. They wake up, eat, then sleep again. They mostly sleep.
    Then there’s humans. They hunt apes for food and pets. We sometimes are too smart.
    If you want to find out more about apes, you have to read the book.

    I read adventures with the vikings for my non-fiction book. It is about the Binkertons, Josh Emma and their little sister Libby.
    They are walking home when a gust of wind blows them into the good times travel agency, just where Josh and Emma don’t want to be. But when Libby opens a book, all of them get sucked into the times of the Vikings. They vikings let them stay and they do things like the rest of the vikings, but they don’t expect to get separated on boats and tied up like prisoners. It’s up to the Binkertons to save them and the other prisoners. On every page there are facts about some things about the vikings here are some of them, the vikings have a small sleeping space for so many people so everyone gets crammed together except the leader who gets a room to himself. Some other facts are that vikings got most of there things from the men stealing things to sell to other vikings for food and better treasures. Vikings traveled quite a bit so they didn’t have a real home.

    Will the Binkertons be able to do it? Will they ever get home?

Her father wants to run away but her mother doesn’t because she thinks the war will be over soon and the slaves will all be free. Then, one day when Addy is serving Master Stevens and a guest, they start talking about selling Sam (her brother) and her dad! Once he sells them, Addy’s mother decides that they’re going to run away. But she and Addy can’t bring Esther, because she’s too heavy and she could cry out at any moment. So they leave Esther behind, and run away. Both of them dress in boy clothes so the dogs can’t track their scent as easily. When her mom starts drowning, Addy tries to save her (and she does.) Then Addy thinks she see’s the light in a white house where Miss. Caroline (who would help them to freedom) might be, but it wasn’t. So if you want to find out if they make it to freedom, READ THE BOOK!!

    I read Brian’s Winter for my Realistic Fiction by Gary Paulsen. It’s about this boy named Brian who gets stuck on an island that’s in an L shape. While he’s stuck there quite a few things that don’t happen everyday, happened. He saw wolves and they didn’t threaten him, a few wolves killed a doe deer and he went and took the rest. A skunk smelled the meat one night and Brian threw her some. She decided to live close to him, and he named it Betty!! Then one night a bear tipped the wall of his shelter that he had made out of the way and swiped at him with his paw, because he was between the bear and food, and when the bear picked him up Betty sprayed the bear and he left Brian alone after that. Then Brian went hunting for a moose, and he got one! It was a cow moose and he tried shooting her with an arrow, which only made her mad, and then he killed her with his killing lance! After that Brian made cloths out of animal skins, and spent time inside. One night Brian heard something that sounded like a gunshot and in the morning, sadly, he found out that it was trees exploding! Then he made himself snow shoes and decided to go outside in them because he hadn’t gone outside for a week. He stayed up all night and until early in the morning (at four o’ clock) making one, and then at nine o’ clock am he was up again and made the second one and in under an hour the second one was done. So then he tried to use them outside, but then came back inside and made some adjustments. Then he spent a whole entire day collecting a weeks amount of wood. Then the next day he went out to go hunting and he used an indent in the ground and he snuck up on a deer and shot it with an arrow right into the top of it’s heart. He brought it back to his house, only he used the buck’s fur for a sled and after he cut the deer into smaller pieces he decided to put them on the skin and he brought it back to the shelter on the fur. Next after that day was complete, he used the next day learning about the ways of the woods in winter. He followed a bull moose and then at some point, a wolf swiped the bull on the rear end and then another one did, then another, then another. It seemed like eight of them but he thought there were only four. He watched them kill the moose that had no antlers. After the moose had slowly died, Brain turned away and left. That night he heard something that sounded like a gunshot. He at first thought it was an exploding tree, but then remembered that it was too warm for that. So Brian went out and made a mental note to bring the bull moose into his house and then searched and he found tracks. There were no animal tracks except for one wolf track. But it was just smooth packed down snow for a track.

    So, did Brian find the sign of a person, or is it something else? If you want to find out you should: READ THE BOOK!!

When her husband got it the witch could’ve killed him, but she didn’t. The witch decided now that Rapunzel was a maiden that she could whisk her away. So she knocked Rapunzel out and blind folded her so she couldn’t escape. When the blind fold was taken off Rapunzel she saw that she was in a tower and she had a temper tantrum because her “bed” was made out of straw and there was only a table, a chair, the “bed”, and her belongings she packed in the chest before the witch closed the lid. Prince Benjamin is in his kingdom amusing a child when his glasses fell off and were broken down the middle. So another child brought Prince Benjamin to his house and Prince called him Other Benjamin because his name was also Benjamin. Other Benjamin’s father fixed his glasses for him.

    I read Twice upon a time Sleeping Beauty for my Fantasy book by Wendy Mass. It’s about a girl named Princess Rose and a boy named the Prince. Princess Rose was given nice gifts, and one curse all a few days after she was born. The curse was that once she got pricked by a spindle she would die at the first drop of blood. The curse was changed by one of the fairies to sleeping for a hundred years because she couldn’t make the curse go away, but at least she could help make it not so bad. Princess Rose, when she was two, held up a rose to her mom and her mom made her give it because she was afraid that it would even work with that! But it didn’t. The old fairy that had given the curse showed up one day when Princess Rose was fifteen, held up an hourglass and said “Tick tick.” Time was running out, but Princess Rose didn’t tell anyone. It happened when the family and Sara went to her father’s second cousin’s house and she wandered around and found a house with a sweet smelling aroma and she tried sewing and the lady gave her a spindle and said it would make it faster. When her parents and Sara ran in and shouted “No!”, she knew it was a spindle and she gave it to her mom but it was to late, a tiny drop of blood fell. Prince was a boy with an ogre mom who acted like one on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month. He finds out about Princess Rose and tries to get in to save her. In the process Percival finds out about it and tries to get in too, so he could be a hero.

    So, if you want to find out if the Prince gets her READ THE BOOK!

    I read Top Wing by Matt Christopher for realistic fiction for the 4th grade library sleepover. The the main conflict is that Dana the main character’s neighbors house burns down pretty soon in the book. It is a sport book, so the soccer team that Dana and Belton, his neighbor who’s house burned down, play on and the only person who passes to him is Steve Rapids, who is the team captain. No one passes to him because Belton is spreading rumors about how Dana’s dad did a bad electron job on the house which caused the fire. I think that boys wold mostly like this book and if you want to find out who started the fire you should read this book.
