The Knight at Dawn-Magic Tree House, No. 2

The Knight at Dawn (Magic Tree House, No. 2)
This is the second magic tree house book. Jack was 8 and a half years old. Annie was seven years old. Jack and Annie were exited because they had discovered a magic tree  house. It was dark and Jack was awake. He woke Annie up and they both went to the magic tree house. They found a book about Knights and Castles. They made a wish and the tree house took them to a world of knights and castles. Jack and Annie saw dogs fighting for bones. Jack tried a heavy armor. They actually got caught by men in the castle. Annie had a flashlight in her hand. They used it to escape from the men. They found a secret trapdoor. The trapdoor led them to a secret passage way. Jack peeked and saw they would fall inside the moat. He started climbing down. He slipped and fell into the moat. Annie fell into the moat too! She helped Jack come out of the moat. A night helped them back to the tree house. Then they went back to the time today. My favourite character was Jack because he believes in books. In this book it is a little dangerous because in their first adventure they just get close to a dinosaur. The second adventure they got caught by men

Aahan's birthday party

On a rainy day, we were going to Aahana's birthday. When we entered it looked like a grand entrance. Aahana is a new born baby. We saw a floor made out of glass. We had fun walking on it. I made a new friend there. Her name was Ishika. We both liked reading books. I didn't talk much with her. The balloons were filled with helium gas. I liked the manchow soup and the dal makhani. And then the last time while going back again we walked over the glass floor.

Geronimo Stilton - Wedding Crasher

Wedding Crasher (Geronimo Stilton, No. 28)
This is the story about Geronimo Stilton. He lived in New Mouse city. He used to run the Rodent  Gazette. Geronimo was invited to the Penny Pincher castle by Samuel.S.Stingysnout. He invited Geronimo, Thea, Trap, and Benjamin because a wedding was to take place in the castle. Patience Plainpaws was marrying Stevie Stingysnout. When Geronimo was in the boat he felt itching on his bums. It was itching so much that he took off his pants and started scratching. Stevie used to treat Patience very badly. After some time they heard someone crying. It was coming from the terrace. It was Patience. She was crying because Stevie had treated her badly. Thea told Patience to throw away those grey clothes and to wear red and green clothes. Thea took Patience to a make-up parlour. When Patience came back she looked so beautiful that Trap ran and brought a rose clutched in his teeth. He looked so shameless. Patience was shy because she was not used to being adored. In the end Stevie looked at Patience and asked her how much had it cost. Patience told Stevie that she expected him to be there. She told Stevie he didn't care for her. He only cared about money. She didn't want to marry him. It was all thanks to her new friend Thea. Thea told Patience to leave those two and to go to her house. Thea and Patience jumped on Thea'a bike and went away.  My favourite character is Thea because she helped Patience become confident. I didn't like Stevie because he treated Patience badly.

Rodrick Rules (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #2)
This is the story about Greg, Manny, and Rodrick. They were brothers. Manny was naughty, Greg was mostly sad because he believed everything bad happened only to him. and Rodrick was always angry because he thought no one listened to him. After some days Rowly's birthday was coming. On Rowly's birthday he got many presents.  Rowly started playing hide and seek with all the people.After a few days there was a skills competition .  Rodrick didn't care about his studies and wanted to win first prize. He was practicing with his band. When the competition started, Rodrick's turn came. Rodrick's father was standing outside the auditorium with cotton stuffed inside his ears because he could not bare the sound of Rodrick's music because the music was too loud.  My favourite character is Manny.   it's because he tells his mother all the mistakes that Greg commits.  I didn't like the roll of Greg's mom. I didn't like her because  she turned the camera  towards herself.

This is the story of two brothers.
Their names were Greg and Manny.

Rowly's  magazine was the best.
My favourite character was Greg because he acted the best.
