The book I’m reviewing is “And Then It Happened Book 7″ by Mark Wade.
This book is one of eleven and one of the best of all of the books, the chapters are fun to read and some chapters make you laugh non stop. There are three boys that try to do things out of this world and when they do things it doesn’t work out for them but they keep trying.
My favourite part of the book is when they dress up for Hallowe’en as two undertakers and a dead man and when they get the candy and then it happened.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes pranks, fun, small adventures, and cool fun ideas that make you feel like you can do it.

The book I'm reviewing is "The Search for Treasure" by Geronimo Stilton.
Geronimo Stilton was called to the Kingdom of Fantasy for the sixth time. He was first called as a skipper in a ship. It was really stormy that Geronimo fell in the water and found a huge rainbow bubble. He quickly dived in and a fish swam to him and told Geronimo that he would make an Ancient Gemstone prophecy come true. Coraline the headmistress of coral academy explained the rest. After that Geronimo went on the quest and met two other heroes who were supposed to fulfil the prophecy. They quickly took the royal ruby from a terrible and terrifying witch named Scorcher and took it to Shining Moon Mountain. After that they gave the royal ruby to a wise king called Azul who had the royal sapphire.
My favourite part of the book is when Geronimo was in a meadow and green fairies perched on his nose all of a sudden he accidentally sneezed sending the fairies the fairies flying over the field.
If you like any of the other Geronimo Stilton series then you should read this too.

My book is called Flora and Ulysses The illuminated Adventures By Kate Dicamillo
Flora, a 10 year old, natural born cynic and a comic book reader springs into action when her neighbor sucks up a squirrel with a vacuum cleaner. The vacuum cleaner caused the squirrel to get superpowers. Flora explains to Ulysses (the squirrel) that he must only use his superpowers to fight injustice, or something. Flora's mother Phyllis Buckman thinks talking to a squirrel is a sign that there something wrong with her and decided to kill Ulysses for Flora's own good. Meanwhile Flora, Ulysses and Flora's father George Buckman who seems to never smile since the divorce with Flora's mother head out and finds themselves on a adventure involving a attack cat, giant donuts, poetry, jelly sandwiches, a boy struck blind and a doctor who tells stories of hope and uncertain mysteries.
My favorite part was the poem Ulysses wrote to Flora using the words from the adventures they had together because I thought it was a very sweet and a amazing poem.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure and humor.

The book I am going to review today is called Chomp, a fantastic novel written by Carl Hiaasen. Chomp is about a boy named Wahoo Cray, who’s father, Mickey Cray is a professional animal wrangler. Because of this, his backyard is filled is filled with snakes monkeys, turtles, raccoon’s, alligators, and many more! Until one day a dead iguana fell from a palm tree and hit his head. Once he got hauled into the hospital, the doctors had told him he had a serious concussion and told him to take it easy. But his injury has left him with double vision and terrible headaches. And so, people kept calling with new jobs, and Wahoo was forced to send the to other wranglers. Then one day Wahoo’s mother told him that the family’s saving account was almost drained, so she said that she as going to China. She said that some big American companies that had offices in China would hire Mrs.Cray to tutor their top executives, and said that they had learned Mandarin from some cheap audiotapes, and that the other day one of the big shots tried to compliment a government minister and accidently said that his face looked like a butt wart! Then one day Mickey Cray takes a job with a reality TV show calledExpedition Survival! a show starring Derek Badger, who is an “expert survivalist” on the show, but what Mickey doesn’t know is that Derek is actually a fake, and knows nothing about surviving in the wild. So once they were shooting the seen where Derek was supposed to swim across a pond to get to dry ground, there was supposed to be an alligator in the seen, but the alligator (named Alice) just stood still underwater. But once the gator emerged out of the water, Derek with no sense in mind, went on top of the alligator, but Alice was holding still. But once Derek lied down lengthwise along the alligators spine and tried to wrap his arms around her, Alice went crazy! She started thrashing and spinning like crazy. Derek had only lasted 3 full spins before he got launched into the air! Alice was still spinning in the water when Derek fell back in the part, but unluckily he fell down two Alice’s teeth got caught onto Derek’s khaki shorts, because of this he started spinning in unison with the alligator, while his production assistant, Raven Stark, was screaming and yelling for help, but no one knew what to do! But then Mickey Cray calmly took off his shoes and dove in into the pond. He grabbed the orange tinted hair of Derek Badger while the director ordered the camera man to keep the film rolling. Once Derek got out his crew carried him to his motor coach where they dried him off, bundled him in a fuzzy Expedition Survival!bathrobe and put him in bed. Once he got onto his bed, he blamed the director for what happened with the alligator accident, and practically fired him. But he had something to show him that might change his mind. He grabbed the DVD that that he had saved from the alligator scene and played it on the high-def TV. 33 seconds later, he turned the TV off and complimented the tape VERY well AND gave the director a big fat raise. My favorite part of the book was probably when Wahoo found a iguana on one of his palm trees because it was really funny and it was a great way to end the book! I would recommend this book and other books written by Carl Hiaasen including Scat, Hoot, and Flush, to people who like nature and protecting nature/the environment with a bit of comedy once in awhile.
