How to train your dragon, by Cressida Cowell
This is the 1st book in the series How to train your dragon. It is called How to train your dragon. It’s about a group of Vikings called Hooligans who are burgling dragons from a cave in the Meathead Is. The main character is Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III. He, although you might not have guessed, is the hero of the story. I really enjoyed the book. I chose 4 stars because it wasn’t what I would call fun but it made me read all the other books in the series.

The body owner’s handbook, by Nick Arnold
I’ts probably the second best book in the Horrible Science Series. I could have read this book about 20 times(seriously!). The good humour makes this author one of the best authors in the history of mankind. The fact that he is a wee bit inappropriate is a good way to make people laugh out loud. This book is recommended for 6 and over.

Aunt Severe and the Toy Thieves by Nick Garlick
Daniel gets more than he bargained for when he visits his Great-Aunt Emily. She’s grumpy and extremely severe because her fiance, the Colonel, has vanished into thin air. And it looks as though two evil toy thieves were responsible.
Soon Daniel is in hot pursuit. But he’s not alone. Along for the ride are his aunt, two clumsy ostriches, three even clumsier monkeys and a penguin who never stops talking. Not to mention a very, very sad pink crocodile.
Daniel is in for the ride of his life!

Big Nate flips out, by Lincoln Pierce
I think it’s great because Nate and Frances get into a fight about a camera. After Nate thought about it he makes the right decision with a little help from Teddy and Deedee. I didn’t give it 5 stars because sometimes it’s a bit mean.
