Now This Is More like It!

Yesterday I received two reviews from Sophia, a girl in the Fourth grade at Metrolina Regional Scolar's Academy. These were the same girls who tried the hostile takeover. When I got these reviews, however, there was no mention of a takeover; only three paragraphs about some good reads! She has obvioulsy accepted the olive branch of peace that the boys offered so generously in our bigness of our hearts. OK, we're glad you did, Sophia. Let's see what our friend wrote:

Danny the Champion of theWorld

Danny the Champion of the world is by Roald Dahl. It is about a little boy named Danny whose dad goes paoching one night. Poachng is when you go out into the woods and "steal" food for your families. Danny has only father; his mother died when he was four months old. Danny's father poaches pheasants and one day he falls in a hole and breaks his leg, then Danny has to go and rescue his dad. Then Danny and his father think up a way to poach two hundred birds at one time. This book will keep you on your toes, it has so much action in it. That is why I love it and think you all should read it.

James and the Giant Peach

James and the Giant Peach is, again, written by Roald Dahl. It is also about a little boy. His name is James. James' parents died when he was young, so he was sent to live with his horrible aunts. One day a little old man gives him a magical bag of something lucky and James hurries to dirnk this formula. Suddenly James spills the bag and the things go into an old peach tree that never produces peaches.

The next day, a peach starts growing. James crawls in and he finds giant insects inside. Then James goes off on adventures!! I LOVE this book, and I am urging you to read it! It has a lot of action in it.

These book reviews are again written by by Sophia, a girl in 4th grade at Metrolina Regional Scholars Academy.

Very well done, Sophia! You've REALLY made want to read the second book! Several boys have written before and talked about Danny, the Champion of the World. A lot of kids like it. (Go to the list of already-reviewed books on the left hand side of the page and see what other kids have said)

Now you see, everyone, this is as it should be! There was no mean and sneaky attempt to take over. She simply shared her love of readiing with all the rest of us. She did the right thing. In other words, she acted like a boy.

Isn't it wonderful?

This is a cool review. I think you should read Danny the Champion of the World and other Roald Dahl books, too.

By the way, I am Sophia's friend, also from Metrolina Regional Scholars' Academy, and she and some of my other friends from school are trying to do a hostile takeover!
