    Can you imagine that you are a cat that fights other cats? Well, that’s what it’s like in my book, Warriors: Starlight by Erin Hunter. The problem in my story is that Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight’s friendship is starting to break because Squirrelflight thinks Brambleclaw is spending too much time with his half brother, Hawkfrost. Brambleclaw suspects that Squirrelflight thinks Hawkfrost is evil because his dad is and that maybe Brambleclaw is too, even though he isn’t. It leads to a cliffhanger, so I don’t know what comes next but at least there is another book in the series! Erin Hunter has written a story that will surprise and excite anyone who reads it. I think anyone who likes fighting, cats, adventure, and cliffhangers will love this book.

    Do you like stories based on real events? Then you might like The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. Ivan is a gorilla who gets taken by humans from his family to go to the Exit 8 Big Top Mall and Video Arcade. When he gets there he starts to like that he gets to be treated like a human. He becomes friends with an elephant named Stella. Stella becomes injured and Ivan is sad, but a baby elephant named Ruby helps him to get through the difficult situation. To find out how it all works out, you’ll have to read the book. Readers will enjoy the lovely story based on a real gorilla who sadly passed away a couple of years ago. This fiction book is wonderful. I recommend this book for anyone who loves animals.

    I am reading Small as an Elephant (by Jennifer Jacobson) right now it is so good.

    • Mrs. Patterson says:

      Tell us what you think of the book when you’re finished reading. I’d love to chat with you about it as well as it’s one of my favorite Maine books.
      Did you know that Jennifer wrote another terrific story set in Maine and also about a family experiencing some hard times? It’s called Paper Things. Maybe you can try that after you finish Small as an Elephant!

    Swift is how Daisy described her death in The dog, Ray by Linda Coggin who has written a story that will be sure to make you want to know what happens next! In the story, Daisy has become a new creature that she would least expect, a dog and meets people along the way. But she must find her family and she meets a boy named Pip who wants to find his family. In the end will Daisy choose to find her family or stay with Pip?

    • Mrs. Patterson says:

      Hi Zed,
      Thank you so much for reviewing this new book! Can you imagine dying and returning back to our world as a dog? The idea is incredibly intriguing.

    Hey guys, I’m here to tell you about “The Call of The Wild” by Jack London. I had an ELA assignment and I decided to read this book which turned out to be great! In this book a dog named Buck is pulled away from his home and sent on the trails of Alaska with other dogs, and day after day they travel and Buck and his pack go from master to master but not all you might think are friendly, most are abusive of the pack. They travel many miles a day and you won’t want to put this book down especially near the end. London did a great job writing this book and uses some big vocabulary to make this story a little changeling, but very good! Hope you enjoy the book as much as I did 🙂

    The One and Only Ivan written by K.A Applegate is a heart stopping story with a good perspective from Ivan the gorilla. The best part is that it is based on a real story about a real gorilla named Ivan. In the beginning Ivan has two friends an elephant named Stella and a small dog named Bob. After a little time has past a baby elephant named Ruby comes. After she comes adventure starts. The story of Ivan is a story that will warm your heart. If you like a story with animals then you should read the One and Only Ivan.

    I have read this book called Small as an Elephant. It is about this boy and his mother [when] they went to Acadia National Park and his mother disappeared when they went to sleep and he has a plastice elphant that makes him feel safe and tells all about the animal that he likes. I love this book and i think you should read it too.
