Abby Carson may get held back a grade. To stay with her class and move up to 7th grade, she must complete all her homework assignments, score very well on all of her tests, and complete an extra credit assignment that is to get a pen pal form another country. When Abby picks the mountainous country of Afghanistan, she finds that some unknown adventure is in store for her.
I thought that the book involved adventure, curiosity, and unknown risks that any reader can enjoy.
Review by Tasia, Watson Elementary, age 10
There’s a stud horse on the loose and Hank tries to fight it off. Hank and Sally May break their legs. The cousins come over and almost get kicked. What are they going to do now? People who like mysteries—this book is for you! View in catalog
Review by Micah, Lawrence/Nelson, age 9
This book is about two girls that have cats. One of the girl's houses gets robbed. The girls have a club that they do. They want to do a project (which is at the cat show) and one of the cats gets stolen. I love this book. It's scary, and has a lot of suspense in it. So if you like suspense, and scary books, this is the one for you. View in catalog
Review by Breeanna, Longfellow Elementary, age 10
This great book is about three poor orphans who are sent to their relative. The strange relative’s name is Sir and he puts the children to work at the lumber mill factory until they are tired. One day the foreman trips one of the boys and he needs new glasses. But when he came back…well, if you want to know more, read this book.
I thought the book was great. It was exciting to read a book like this. This book was a lot of fun to read and you will love it. The more you read it you don’t want to stop reading. View in catalog
Review by Brenda, Hastings Middle School, age 11
It’s about a man named Phileas Fogg who bets 20,000 pounds (the currency in England) that he can go around the world in 80 days, before high-speed travel.
It was a wonderful combination of adventure and suspense and humor. I laughed ‘til I cried. He stopped at places like Shanghai, New York and more around the world. I believe that this author inspired all other adventure authors up to today. I couldn’t stop reading. View in catalog
