Title: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Reviewed by: Darren, 10
This book is about two boys and two girls going in a wardrobe and finding a secret world called Narnia.
They adventure there and find out they are in a heap of trouble when they go into an evil witch's castle.
I liked this book because it flows and the story makes sense to me. The story is fun and I think that a lot of people know about it.
Also, I like it because it is about adventure, fantasy, and exploring new things. A story is always exciting when those themes are included.
Title: Tintin in America
Reviewed by: Tanvi Adithan, 11
This book is about a Bulgarian reporter named Tintin and his dog Snowy. Tintin comes to Chicago to get rid of the gangsters who dominate the city. The gangsters try their best to stop Tintin, but are not successful.
I liked this book because there are many areas where Tintin could have been killed. He didn't die mostly because he thought quickly and carried out his daring plans and also he was plain lucky.
I also like the sense of humour. Every so often, Snowy will make a funny remark. For example, when Tintin was wearing a suit of armour, Snowy said, "That's a snappy outfit." Tintin in America is my favourite Tintin book.
Title: White Jade Tiger
Reviewed by: Vincent Lam, 12
This book is about a girl named Jasmine, staying at her aunt's house since her father went to China. When she went through a doorway in the Fan Tan Alley, she found herself back into the 1880s. With the help of her friend Keung, she is frantically searching for the one and only White Jade Tiger.
I liked this book because it described how it was in the 1880s when the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) was built. The Chinese workers were paid 80 cents a day!
I also like this book because it had suspense when Jasmine was chased by Blue Scar Wong. Both of them wanted the amulet so badly. I hope you will have as much fun reading this book as I did!
