Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing

written by Judy Blume

reviewed by Chris the King (Grade: 4 Age: 9)

Do you have a weird brother? Peter does. Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is about when Peter wins a turtle. Then Peter’s brother Fudge ate one of his mom’s flowers. Next, the Yarbys come and Peter’s dad gets fired from their company.  Finally, Fudge eats Peter’s turtle Dribble. Find out what happens to Fudge after eating Dribble?

Most characters are not believable, but a few are. Peter is believable because he never did anything weird. Fudge is not realistic because no kid would swallow a flower. Their Dad is not that believable because no adult would pour cereal on top of their kid. Their mom is not believable because she doesn’t care about Peter and most mothers do care.

I would rate Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing a 10 out of 10 because every minute of it got better and better. I recommend this book to everybody who likes chapter books that are age 9-13. I also recommend this book to the kids who are the youngest in their family so they can live what Fudge lives. Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is a book you will never forget.

Chato Goes Cruisin’

written by Gary Soto

reviewed by “Mario” (Grade 3)

Have you ever gone on a cruise? Well, Chato and Novio Boy did. In Chato Goes Cruisin‘ Chato was eating and he found an offer. It said win a cruise for two. Three weeks later Chato shouted, “we won a cruise for two!” Chato and Novio Boy got ready. The first night on the ship they served dog food. They tried to sleep but it was too loud. On the third day, the dogs were sick. They found vets for them. Chato said, “there are too many sick dogs.”  Chato and Novio Boy saved the day. Then, Chato found a second offer. Where do you think they are going to go next?

I like the part when Chato and Novio Boy saved the day. I like this part because I like super heroes. Chato and Novio Boy were acting like super heroes.

I recommend this book to people who like Gary Soto books. I recommend this book who like Chato books, or to who like cruising. I also recommend this book to kids who there age is 8 and up.

Have you ever tricked anyone coming over for dinner? Well, Chato and Novio Boy did. In Chato Goes Cruisin‘ Chato and his friend were making food all afternoon. Chato invited the mice for dinner to trick them. The mice were his neighbors. Then the mice brought a dog. Then Chato and Novio Boy had problem because they were scared of dogs. Uh! Oh!

My favorite part was when Chato said, “all right neighbors.” Then the mice brought a dog. Chato ran and cowered under the dining table.

I recommend this book to people who like funny things. It is funny when Chato said, “all right neighbors” then dropped their stuff and ran. Also I recommend this book to people who like Chato books.

Snapshots from a Wedding

written by Gary Soto

reviewed by “Little Purple” (Grade 3)

Have you ever taken snapshots from a wedding? In Snapshots From a Wedding, a girl named Maya was a flower girl and took snapshots of the bride, broom, and when they kissed. The bride and the groom is Maya’s family. When the bride and the broom kissed, the people threw rice at them and Maya was catching the rice with her tongue.

I like this book because I loved the pictures and the background because it looks beautiful. The illustrator used dolls, boxes to put the dolls in, and lace for the background. Then she took pictures for the book. My favorite part was when Maya pushed black olives onto her fingers. It looked like she had black nails.

I think other children should read this book because it is a funny book. I recommend this book to K-12 graders or anyone who enjoys wedding books.
