In Lemony Snicket’s 8th book from the series of Unfortunate Events, the Hostile Hospital continues the story of Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire. These three orphans who are still up against the evil Count Olaf, who has been trying to get their fortune for a very long time now! Violet likes to invent items. Klaus is the book worm. Sunny is just an infant who has four sharp teeth which she like to bite stuff with which comes in handy a lot. This story takes place in a hospital in the middle of nowhere.
This is where the siblings have been on the run. And now they sneak into a hospital where their arch enemy is. Also in the previous book they were framed for a crime they did not commit. The crime was murdering Count Olaf, which they didn’t do. Here is a quote from the book. “Quick get the little orphan brats,(said Count Olaf)before its too late!”
I really liked this book because it was an adventure and mystery book. I would recommend this book to 4th graders and up because I think that they would get it the most. I would give this book 5 stars because it is a really good book!! – Ruby
I read Lemony Snicket’s 5th book from the series of Unfortunate Events called Austere Academy . It continues the story of Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire who are still up against the evil Count Olaf who has been trying to get their fortune for a very long time now! This story takes place in a boarding school. This is where the siblings meet another pair of orphans [as they are orphans themselves]. The other orphans are twins, a boy and a girl. They also had their parents die in a fire and also have there own little fortune of their own.
Also Count Olaf seems to follow them everywhere they go and that is why they are sent to the boarding school so that the man in charge of them Mr.Poe, can find a good home for them. But while at the boarding school Count Olaf still finds them and their new friends disappear with Count Olaf. Anyway the boarding school is a terrible place because of so many reasons. One reason is that Sunny has to make staples all day. And I must tell you that she is only one one-years-old. “Debo” is something that she says in the book which means “Why in the world would I have to make staples?!!?”
I really liked this book because it was an adventure and mystery book. I would recommend this book to 4th graders because I think that they would understand it the most.It is a bit complicated because you have to remember a lot of little details to help figure out the mystery. Well 4th grader and up would like this book. I would give this book 5 stars because it is a really good book!!
I think that a winkle in time is a very good book. I don’t want to give a way to much of the book so I’ll tell you a little of the book .Its about a girl named meg ,her brother charles and their friend Calvin. In this book they go on a big adventure through time and space others who have read it said that it was really confusing ,but I don’t think so. [Partly because I watch Doctor Who]. I would give this book a 5*****star rating !! And I recommend this to 4th and 5th graders.

I think that behind the bookcase is a really good book. It is full of mystery and secret. And the main character [Sarah] doesn’t want to stay at her recently dead Grandmother’s house to clean it up for selling. Just as she thinks that her summer is the worst weeks of her life ,she finds a unfinished letter from her grandmother that says strange things are happening behind the bookcase… She finds a new world and that is is where the adventure begins. I would rate this a five star book. And recommend this book to 4th to 5th graders -Ruby Wexler
I think that the” Sisters Grimm” is a very good book. It is a very good book for people who like adventures
because the “Sisters Grimm” books are all about adventure. And I really liked it because there is a mystery
in each book that is solved at the end of each book. I also like it because it has fairy tale characters but they
don’t go through the stories, though it just has the characters after the story or event that happened to them.
I recommend book or series to 3rd to 4th graders.

I think that “THE TIME GARDEN” is a very good book. As you follow Eliza, Ann and
Roger through a time travel adventure. The kids company on the Natterjack (a frog) helps them with their
adventures . When the kids want to go see there parenets they wish to go to
london( because that’s where their parents are) they end up going to old london( in the
time of queen Elizabeth) .what will happen then?
I recommend this book to 4th and maybe advised 3rd graders .
