Around the Christmas break, I went to see the movie, Moana on the big screen and it is in a word… AMAZING!
A tribute to the Polynesian culture and mythology, and full of heroic exploits of the heroes and heroines that Kiwis will be familiar with, namely Maui, the demigod. The plot follows the adventure and journey of Moana , a spirited teenager, who like most Disney princesses has a lot on her plate. This involves sailing out on a daring mission to save her island, restore the heart of Te Fiti – the island goddess, fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest and save the world. During her journey, Moana meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui, and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures against impossible odds. Once again, Disney has put together a movie of epic proportions filled with quirky and memorable characters, as well as an amazing cast, including Kiwi actors, Temuera Morrison, Jemaine Clement and Oscar Kightley. Kids, if those names don’t ring a bell, ask your parents and a Disney Princess in the form of Moana who embodies the qualities of an adventurous, headstrong, practically fearless, and physically capable heroine. An 8/10 all the way!

The beast looks scary but I still like the book. Seregatan is the beast’s name. It is a sea beast which was defeated by Kai and his robot dog BC. They defeated Seregatan by throwing a crystal that exploded into sharp parts then went to Seregatan until he was trapped in a big ice crystal..
This is a book that I’m scared of because the beast Tormaxidactyl makes scary sounds but I like the way Kai and dog bot BC won over the Tormmaxidactyl beast. It got defeated by chains going around Tormmaxidactyl then it fell from the sky.
I like the book because they have amazing robots and machines. The good guys are Kai, bc BMC and they won over the stormasaurix. It’s a book about defeating the stormasaurix. A stormasaurix is a three headed dragon but it first started two..

There were 4 parts to Horrid Henry. There is a different adventure in every part. In chapter 4 Horrid Henry really does rob a bank while playing a game! In 2 of the adventures Horrid Henry wanted a “Hip Hop Robot Dog” so he sold newspapers to get one.
The best part that I liked about the story was when Horrid Henry and his friend were fighting.. They had a lot of fights.
It was a very funny book. The funniest part was when Horrid Henry was writing the newspaper.
I reckon this book would be for boys and girls up to teenagers.
