The Million Dollar Kick

The Million Dollar Kick
by Dan Gutman
This book made me feel kind of nervous because if you don't know how to kick a soccer ball 20 yards into a goal when there's a goaly standing in the net becauseif you make it you win a million dollars and so what if you miss? How embarrasing that must be. I have a connection I would like to share with you. One day at a soccer a camp I shot the soccer ball at the top left corner and I made it just like in the book. This book is just right for me because it was the kind of interesting I like.

I've got to choose Jess Kirby because he's really smart and has a lot of electronicle things. He didn't really change that much so he was pretty smart from beggining to end.

I felt good about the resolution because when she shot the ball it went into the goal and it was a happy ending and I like happy endings. I wanted to do it on "The Million Dollar Shot" but I just finished reading this book so I decided to do it on this one instead.If I were aloud to change something I would just change the goaly from girl to boy so that it would be girl on boy. The authors message was that never give ,just keep on trying.

Geromino Stilton at the Niagara Falls,
by Geromino Stilton

This story makes me feel kind of happy because Geromino has to set up a tent which he doesn't know how to set up. Neither does he know how to set up a camp fire or a bathroom\toilet. I once had to set up a tent all by myself to. This book is just right for me. Because its full with humor.

The three main characters are Geromino,Punk Rat,Miss Angel Paws. The way Geromino changed is that he cared more for Punk Rat. The way Punk Rat changed is that he cared more for Geromino. The way Miss Angel paws changed is that she became happier as the story went on.

The way the story ended was that MissAP married Gentle Mouse. The thing I want to have changed is that Punk Rat is not very mean. There isn't really a message for this book.

Stuart Little - November 9, 2009

STUART LITTLE by E.B.White

This book made me feel kind of lonely because Stuart runs away from home and gets sad quite often. I made a connection and this is what it said "I also know how it feels." It helped me understand how hard it is to let go of your family. I learned that some story's can be sad and some can be happy. I think that this is a just right book for me because it has the right type of feeling in it.

The 3 main characters are;Stuart Little the mouse,George his brother,and Margalo the bird. Stuart is the one who runs away and George is not very happy about having a mouse as a pet and Margalo is Stuarts best friend.Stuart didn't change that much and the way George changed is that he cared more for his brother. Stuart and Margalo didn't change that much either. The way the story ended wasn't very happy because Stuart did not find Margalo and never returned to his home.If there was something I could change then it would be that he returned home and found Margalo,because I think he would he would live happily ever after.

Moral:Search for the one you like.
